Lock Picking @ fizzPOP

FizzPOP is running regular “Intro to Sport Picking” sessions on the second Wednesday of each month.

What is Sport Picking?

Locks, how they work, and the opening of them without the usual key has long held a fascination for many people. Over the last few years this has taken off rapidly, and there are several organisations that teach and practise sport picking.

Once able to pick a lock, the competition to see who can open it fastest is sometimes strangely intense, and as each lock falls open it is very enjoyable.

As well as teaching the basics, often advanced tricks are found, known as bypasses, and although these are rarely taught or demonstrated the results are, as with computer security flaws, normally fed back to the manufacturer.

We hope to start a leaderboard online which will cover, as well as the FizzPOP group, the entire UK, as there are ties between us and both Manchester & London Sport Picking groups.

We’d love to see you. Second Wednesday of the month, 7pm to 10pm. See here for directions.
