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.
