The Easiest Way to Pick a Lock

picking lock

As survivalists, we have enough to worry about without dwelling on the small things. For example, locks where keys have been misplaced or lost can easily be taken care of with a bolt cutter if you are willing to ruin the lock. But what about if that lock happens to be in your house and apartment? Your car?

And what about your friends and acquaintances? How often have you heard them say they had to call a locksmith because they locked themselves out of somewhere?

Learning to pick a lock, keeping that lock fine for later use – because you may eventually find that key – is possible to learn on your own. And, who knows, in a SHTF scenario it may become imperative for any number of reasons.

Over on the next page, we will show you the steps to picking a lock. It is not as difficult as you may think and if you become excellent at having this skill may be indispensable to both you and those around you!

Think of the future and what you will be able to trade for that skill!

    This has come in quite handy for me. Twice in the last six months my wife has locked her keys in the car. Both times I’ve been able to pick the lock and open the door. I’ve probably saved a hundred dollars not having to pay a locksmith.
