NSL Lockpicking is a group meeting at NullSpace Labs that occurs every third Friday of the month from 7 pm to around midnight. We meet to picks locks, open safes, learn about physical security, and to socialize. All meetings are open to the public but membership at NSL or donations are encouraged to keep the group (and space) running.
This month's topic is HOME-MADE PICKS AND TOOLS! Learn how to make your own custom lockpicking tools with common hand tools and hardware store supplies. I'll be bringing a collection of home made picks and torque tools for your viewing pleasure. For the beginners, we'll review all the different types of lock picks and torque tools and how they are used.
The NSL lockpicking group is open to the public. The meeting is run by Datagram. See him for any information or questions regarding the group.
The act of lockpicking, including possession of lockpicking tools, is 100% legal in California. To ensure compliance with the law, all attendees must abide by these three rules:
Failure to abide by these rules or any indication of malicious intent will result in immediate dismissal from the lock group and likely from NSL as a whole. More information about the legality of tools in the United States is available at Lockwiki.com.
We have ongoing projects and workshops for members of all skill levels. Most projects are ongoing or can be repeated when requested by group members, supplies permitting.
Donations of tools and money are always accepted. All money goes directly to the lock group. Right now we could use the following items:
