Exclusive to Lock401, the "Night School Tuxedo: Special Edition" is a 14-piece kit with everything you need to learn lockpicking. Our special edition includes the Tuxedo Royale European Pick Set with the Night School Kit.
Thousands of professionals and hobbyists have used this exact kit, due to its quality, progressive learning curve and clearly defined goals. You'll walk away with tangible skills: a mechanical knowledge of lock mechanisms, the principles of lock manipulation, and a practical knowledge of detecting and bypassing anti-pick techniques.
On a fundamental level, picking a lock necessitates three elements: a lock, a pick, and something to turn / open the lock. The Lock401 Night School: Special Edition kit is built around these basic principles.
Practice / Cutaway Locks
"Cut-away" locks allow you to learn the mechanics of lock-picking by revealing the inner workings of a working lock.
Pins, springs and shear lines are easily identifiable: rapidly understand concepts that can be initially intangible.
In a second phase, cut-away locks help to translate what is felt while picking into what is happening inside the lock - especially important when learning advanced techniques such as "anti-pick" pins.
The Lock401 Night School Special Edition Kit includes three high-quality cut-away locks, each with progressive difficulty.
The torque that is applied to a lock during picking is critical. Too much tension, and pins cannot be manipulated; too little tensions, and manipulated pins won't hold their position.
The Lock401 Night School Special Edition Kit includes six high-quality tension tools. Each tool gives different feedback and control, allowing you to find and hone your picking style.
Picks allow for the manipulation pins inside a lock.
Generally, there are two types of pick - picks designed to manipulate individual pins one at a time - feelers, and picks that manipulate multiple pins at once - rakes.
The Lock401 Night School Special Edition Kit includes seven high quality picks: two hooks, three rakes, a half diamond pick and an offset hybrid pick.
Many kits claim to be "beginner kits", but are frequently a few low-quality tools with poorly made transparent locks.
The Lock401 Night School Special Edition Kit is a proven learning platform: quality, cohesive tools to provide strong fundamentals, a progressive learning curve and real skills, while minimizing frustration.
