Learn the fine art of picking locks! We'll have a couple lock picking kits and practice locks available to tinker with. This is a completely legal event, and we abide by two rules:

  1. Never pick a lock that you do not own or have permission to pick.
  2. Never pick a lock that is in use or that you depend on.
