What we're about

Are you intrigued? Join a group of individuals interested in exploring lockpicking, physical security and the inner workings of locks?

If you answered a anything more than a tepid yes then you are encouraged to join our meetup, attend a future gathering and learn about locks and security.

We promise to always have a couple of sets of tools, some progressive/practice locks and friendly advice available to help get you started. Learning the basics takes only one evening and then it really is about practice, and having fun.

TOOOL Ottawa promotes and adhere to the TOOOL Code of Ethics, which is summarized in the following three rules:

1. Never pick or manipulate with the aim of opening any lock that does not belong to you, unless you have been granted explicit permission by the lock's rightful owner.

2. Never disseminate knowledge or tools of lockpicking to individuals whom you know or whom have reason to suspect would seek to employ such skills or equipment in a criminal manner.

3. Be mindful of the relevant laws concerning lockpicks and related equipment in any country, state, or municipality where you seek to engage in hobbyist lockpicking or recreational locksporting.
