Locksport Workshop

Learn how to pick locks, see demonstrations, and join the locksport community! The mission of the Open Organization Of Lockpickers is to advance the general public knowledge about locks and lockpicking. By examining locks, safes, and other such hardware and by publicly discussing our findings we hope to strip away the mystery with which so many of these products are imbued.

Each workshop is an organized Lockpick Village which is also held at Maker Faire Orlando. The Lockpick Village is a physical security demonstration and participation area. Participants will learn about the vulnerabilities of various locking devices, techniques used to exploit these vulnerabilities, and practice on locks of various levels of difficultly to try it themselves. Trial locks, pick tools, and other devices will be available for you to handle.

By exploring the faults and flaws in many popular lock designs, you can not only learn about the fun hobby of sportpicking, but also gain a much stronger knowledge about the best methods and practices for protecting your own property.
