LOCK-PICK-TRAINING-KIT-IF2

[Shop]  You don’t need to be an international man of mystery for there to be value in the ability to pick a lock. Whether you have a penchant for forgetting your keys or just want to be there for friends and neighbors, learning to pick locks is a worthwhile skill. But that doesn’t mean you should go practicing on your front door; officers might not like that. Instead, get yourself this Lock Pick Training Kit, which includes a set of tools and a see-through padlock so you can watch what’s happening while you practice. Not only will you come to understand the inner workings of a lock, but you’ll gain the skills necessary to pick one with ease. And don’t worry, there are keys included in case you get frustrated.
