This article is surely the best way to get flagged by the FBI, but we can risk anything for “educational videos”! If you have lost the key a lock or are locked out for any other reason, this piece will surely come in handy!
The video shows how to pick a lock easily, and goes to great lengths in explaining the working of a pin tumbler lock. The video even uses a transparent lock to explain the pin chamber and shear line mechanism. Then the YouTuber Von Malegowski elaborates on how to use tension pins and simple lock pickers that can even be made at home to break open the supposedly secure lock!
The video shows the most basic way to pick a lock, which can be enumerated as below,
Insert Tension Wrench into the Bottom of Key Hole and Apply Slight Pressure.
Insert Pick at Top of Lock.
While Applying Slight Torque to Your Wrench, Scrub Your Pick Back and Forth in the Key Hole.
Repeat Until All the Pins Set.
I am not sure if I can trust any locks after watching the YouTuber break open the lock without a hassle! The video is good enough to make even professional lock pickers proud, but we know you would never use these for any malicious purposes.
