After watching a few youtube videos, I thought that lock picking might be a good, relatively inexpensive hobby to get into, so bought this set to learn the basics. What I didn't anticipate was needing to learn first how to key a lock. You see, before I had an opportunity to try my lock picking the lock, I tested the key first, all good, right up to where I re-locked the padlock and the panel on the side of the lock (that I hadn't noticed was loose) came off with springs and pins everywhere. I tried putting it back together, but without tweezers, it's not going to happen.
So, my advise - if you buy this kit, make sure the plate on the side of the training padlock is on securely. I'll update the review once I get the pins and springs back to where the should be.
I took the padlock out of the box and immediately put the key in. BAM! The side panel shoots off and the springs and pins fly all over the room. I'm unable to find them all in the carpet, making this a complete waste of money.
