This Practice Padlock will improve your lock-picking skills

Practice Padlock

There are some practices that we no longer view as a necessity. How many of your friends are expert cooks, blacksmiths, or falconers? The only times we really consider picking up a new skill set is usually in a video game. If you wish you could level up in real life, then picking up some neat skills we usually thought were reserved for spies or characters in fantastical worlds might be just the way to do it.

If you’ve ever wanted to be a rogue, but didn’t know how to obtain the knowledge to be one, you should start small and work your way up. This Practice Padlock will help you develop your lock picking skills over time. This functions like any other padlock, but it is made of clear plastic so you can use a pick and see what you’re doing while you try to open the lock.

While this doesn’t mean you’ll be able to open any lock, it will make you familiar with this specific type. You’ll learn what you should be feeling for if you’re trying to open one of these with anything other than a key. Of course, this is not meant to encourage you to steal anything as this is just a handy skill to have should the situation befall you. This skill can be picked up for only $13.99, and hours of practice.
