Lock Picking


Wow, the things one can get from youtube are unbelievable! On the plus side, you get to master a lot of DIY skills quite easily, and on the minus side, if you have the tendency to be cunning, you can actually learn the techniques just as easily.

A loves boxes, especially those trinket boxes with fancy locks. The little brother, N, unfortunately has the penchant for spoiling her boxes. He locked the key of one of A's special boxes inside that box today. The sisters, apparently having discussed how best to solve the problem, approached Mom and Dad to try picking the lock 'spy books style'.

I tried using a bobby pin, Dad tried a penknife but none worked. Then an inspiration struck, "check it out on youtube"! After watching a few techniques, I decided to use a pair of tweezers to pick the lock. Voila! Within seconds the job was done. Now this, has been an education for Mom. Here are some I find useful:
