Do all locks have five pins?
User avatar #100 to #66 - gardenmanly (12/29/2012) [-]
most house locks have 5 pins, some have 6 pins, it is rare to see a 4 pin unless its in a masterlock padlock. also car locks use wafer tumblers, not pins, so picking a car lock is a different method.
User avatar #88 to #66 - taxation (12/29/2012) [-]
They vary, but 4 or 5 would be the most common. There's always more simple or more complicated ones out there though!
User avatar #72 to #11 - ehzio (12/29/2012) [-]
interesting.... but I have to know, how do you know the inside ones are up?

Aw, thanks! I find it's better to be nice than always go off trolling people, acting pissed and whatnot. Have a .gif of a tesseract doing a simple transformation in 4 dimensions!

Close enough. Most people just "scrape" the lock.
User avatar #89 to #68 - taxation (12/29/2012) [-]
Although I'm sure that's actually faster!
#101 to #89 - ohhitheree (12/29/2012) [-]
Pretty much you just run the lockpick from the back to the front. Very simple.
User avatar #103 to #101 - gardenmanly (12/29/2012) [-]

but you were correct with the method, they use a pick called a rake that is shaped like a zig zag and you push it from front to back while applying a little pressure with the turning tool to try and bounce the pins into place
#104 to #103 - ohhitheree (12/29/2012) [-]
I learned it as the scrape.

Shucks, I sure feel dumb now. Really though, that's a pretty cool thing to do! Does this printed version contain actual information, or is it just shenanigans?

i dunno, i just searched it on google images lol
i doubt it does though
User avatar #28 to #11 - codyxvasco (12/29/2012) [-]
It is, you just need to keep pressure rotating with the first tool.
User avatar #33 to #28 - taxation (12/29/2012) [-]
Twisting so that the pins don't slide back down once you've got them lock in, right?
User avatar #39 to #33 - codyxvasco (12/29/2012) [-]
You got it!
User avatar #42 to #39 - taxation (12/29/2012) [-]

do not get caught with lockpicks on you, the police do not take much pity on you unless you have a locksmith id card. at least here in the US

that being said, if you are going to get some don't waste you're money on this set, all you really need is a turning tool (which are the top L shaped tools) and a rake (2nd from the bottom) a spade (6th from the bottom), and a normal pick (8th from the bottom), the rest you will very very rarely use. the two circle shaped ones are used for wafer-style locks which is a different method than this one, others are just complicated variations of the rake, and one is just a broken key extractor. it shouldn't cost more than 10 buck for everything you need. then be patient, its really really difficult and I suck at it, but keep trying and its the best feeling when you finally pick a lock

Great Scott, I must warn others to not continue on this path... Here goes!

You could always pick your own lock, or become a locksmith.
User avatar #52 to #49 - taxation (12/29/2012) [-]
True, but one's no fun and the other's too much work. I dunno, there's gotta be some amusing, practical, legal application to this. Or not!

Sorry to disappoint, but I actually haven't. I'm not much of a gamer, especially not sandbox rpg's. Interesting to know though that Bethesda incorporated an realistic lock-picking technique into the game!

Some missions are best completed by emerging from the sewer into some guy's house in the middle of the night. Makes perfect sense, right? Anyway, their basement door is usually locked, and if you don't have either twelve picks or incredibly good timing, you're stuck there all night.

It's also one of the most glorious pieces of programming ever burnt onto a disk. There's a double pack for Xbox with Oblivion and Fallout 3 for $20. I highly recommend it.
User avatar #43 to #41 - taxation (12/29/2012) [-]
Oh hell, there wouldn't happen to be a PS3 version of that, would there? I doubt it, but if so I am SO going out tomorrow for that with the remains of my Christmas money!
User avatar #44 to #43 - impaledsandwich (12/29/2012) [-]
I don't know, but I sincerely hope so. They don't come with any DLC, but **** , man, Fallout and Oblivion!
User avatar #46 to #44 - taxation (12/29/2012) [-]
Sounds like one bloody great combo! And going by what I've heard of the length of Fallout 3, who'd need DLC with that long a campaign? Plus, screw spending money online. Not my style!

Gotta love those spiritual techies, all doing supernatural file transfers and whatnot!

On a serious note though, sys32 can be some fun with dumbasses. Some kid pisses me off then asks for advice on how to speed up his computer, I **** you not I led him through the full, unrecoverable delete process via skype. He logged off mid-typing, and I haven't heard from him since!

okay, that's cool and all, BUT:

How the **** is the lower part mounted? The string goes all around it! Does it magically hover in the ******* air?

No, srsly, I have no idea... can someone explain these shenenigens?
User avatar #16 to #9 - mullacllahdoow ONLINE (12/29/2012) [-]
I imagine that the rotating part is mounted on a slant so that if you were looking at it in 3D the bottom part of the circle would be closer to you that the top part and as it rotates the bottom moves up and away from you.

No idea if that is right, but it makes sense.
User avatar #45 to #9 - jimimij (12/29/2012) [-]
it's basically sliding around one side of the wheel. the wheel is mounted on the other side. Also, in reality the needle goes in deeper to make it taught enough for the wheel to always catch it. The spool has tension on it to make the thread tight enough so the wheel doesnt miss
