Learn To Pick Locks With Lockpick School In A Box

Lock picking is one of those "for informational purposes only" skills that you'll probably never need but should still know. No one is advocating anything that's going to result in a run-in with Johnny Law, but the wooden desktop Lockpick School in a Box from Maker Shed will teach you how to pick locks with five cylinders of varying difficulty, four picks, a tension wrench and a key (just in case). Hopefully the investment is nothing more than an additional life skill, but it's cheaper than calling a locksmith to get you into your place when you inevitably lock yourself out.
