Each lesson in the Online Locksmith's Course has five steps:
Step 1: View my original video clip.
Step 2: Read through the written material and the attached documents, which will help you understand the subject covered in the lesson. .
Step 3: Open the links to video clips accessible online, showing professional locksmiths around the world working on projects similar to those described in the lesson
Step 4: Perform the practical exercise described in the lesson.
You will need:
Small adjustable pliers
A retractable steel rule
Preparing your lock picking tools: Cut the rule diagonally into sections, so that each end is pointed. You will be able to use the pointed end to pick the shackle of the lock. Apart from learning how to make "unconventional" lock picking tools, which are often very effective, you may also decide to purchase professional lock picking tools, produced by international firms, or you can order my own custom-made lock picking tools, which will be immediately sent to your home address on receipt of order.
The padlock picking process: On attempting to pick a Mul-T-Lock padlock using the method you have learned, check whether the padlock is the old-fashioned type, also known as the spring type. If the padlock is not a spring-type one, a completely different lock picking method is required – the steel-rule method will not work on it!
How to ensure that the padlock is an old-fashioned spring-type padlock, which can be picked using two lengths of steel rule:
Put the piece of steel rule into the shackle on one side, and turn it inwards towards the padlock. If you can feel resistance to the steel rule on the inner part of the padlock, then it is not a spring-type padlock and you need to use a different method.
If you can insert the piece of steel rule into the padlock, put the second piece of steel rule into the other side of the shackle and rotate again using the locking pliers, to complete picking the padlock. This method can be used for all types of high-security spring padlocks, whether they are Mul-T-Lock or other brands such as Yale, Mul-T-Lock and others.
Tip: Most of the Mul-T-Lock spring padlocks silver, unless it is an old one which has been treated by a locksmith and the outer casing replaced with a black one (a faulty padlock repaired by a locksmith will usually have its casing replaced with a black one, so that the only way to tell whether a padlock is spring-type or not is by inserting a piece of steel rule into the shackle.)
Silver (nickel) padlock – usually spring-type
Now watch a clip with a professinal locksmith that opens a lock in the same way we do but with professional tools.
A locksmith college in the United States teaches only about door locks. That’s only about 20% of what I teach, which includes cars, safes and rekeying. Please watch the clip to see the range of topics that are covered in my course.
Here you will watch a clip that shows a professional tool for Mul-T-Lock picking.
Here we will watch a clip that shows us how to pick a cylinder Mul-t-lock.
Now watch a clip from a lock manufacturer that illustrates how they solved the problem of lock bumping. Because lock bumping is rapidly becoming obsolete in the locksmith industry, we will briefly review the method, but will not teach it in detail. We will teach how to pick even the world’s most sophisticated locks, including the latest locks on the market. The locksmith industry is extremely dynamic. As professional locksmiths, we must be familiar with existing bumping methods, but will not linger on increasingly outdated lock picking methods.
As you might have guessed, the best training ground is your own house or your neighbor’s house because all of them have all the things you need to learn to be a locksmith; from tools to locks to doors.There is your car, your homefront door, your car alarm,bedroom doors, bathroom doors – let’s start!
In this assignment I will ask you to take a metal tape measure and a small adjustable spring plier and of course a lock(a spring Multilock).As was mentioned in the video clip this method will work only on the old Multilock spring locks; you can always buy one in your nearest hardware store if you don’t have a spare one. I can also provide you with whatever locks, cylinders and accessories that you might need – we work with all shippers and carriers worldwide.
Cut the tape measure as shown in the video clip(10cm pieces with angled tips) and start practicing.
Good luck my dearest new locksmith. I know that when you finish my course you will be one of the best,professional locksmith’s around.
