Getting the Gift of Lock Picking Skills

Posted by Chris Dangerfield on

Hello all

In the weeks coming up to Father's Day I received hundreds of emails asking what the best lock picking sets would make a good gift. I really should have written this blog before Father's Day, in fact, before Father's Day 2005 as it happens every year! But better late than never, and it does get asked all year round, so if you're thinking of getting some lock picks as a gift, this blog is for you.

First of all it's important to realise you're not looking to get them some lock picks. Unless they are already a lock picker, you want to consider the bigger picture. Getting a set of picks through the door is like getting a hammer: Without nails and something to repair, it's not the most exciting gift. I suggest you see your gift as more than some lock picks. What are you really trying to get them? Lock Picking SKILLS! Wow - now that's a gift!

The difference is clear. On the one hand they get some nice lock picks. Cool, interesting and they can look them up on line and proceed. But imagine getting them everything they need to literally be picking locks in a matter of hours - now that's a gift! You're actually increasing someones skill-set - brilliant!

So how do you do that? Well, I have done the work for you. As long as you grab AT LEAST ONE item from each section below, they'll be ready to go. Of course, you can by more than one from each section if you wanted to really spoil them, but one from each is all they'll need to get going immediately. Cool eh? Each section contains quality items for all manner of budgets, so have a look and get someone the amazing gift of lock picking skills!
