What we're about

Unallocated Space (UAS) is an active hackerspace location in Anne Arundel County (Severn, MD) that supports the DC / Baltimore Metro Area. As an open technology-based community lab, we invite you to share your creativity!

Our mission is to foster our community to "Teach, Learn, Build”. Our 1600+ sq.ft. space is minutes from BWI, between Baltimore and Washington DC.

Our classroom can handle 30+ students and hosts courses in electrics, web development, programming and computer networking.

Our members offer a steady stream of free and public events, classes, activities, and anything that gets people building, making, and learning. We serve the community on 100%%donated funds as a non-profit organization. For more information, visit unallocatedspace.org for upcoming events or contact

Lockpicking 102 - Toool

Needs a location

Purpose Cover topics that are omitted on the introductory lockpicking night. Everyone attending is encouraged to bring equipment, locks, or talking points if you want to present on something. Format I'll have a primer on security pins and intermediate locksport prepared but would like to focus on more advanced topics such as • Alternative lock mechanisms (sesame, rotating disc, dimple, lever, sidebar wafer) • Impressioning • Lock Foreniscs • Bitting decoding • Master Keyed systems • Bypass techniques • Safes • Hardware hacking w/ electronic locks We'll probably sit around picking whatever locks we've got, while covering the presentation. Equipment If you have lockpicks or locks you’re encouraged to bring them. We do sell introductory kits and have a set of beginner locks and picks anyone can use. Instructor Note Hey I’m Flay. I’ve been lockpicking for years and was the 2 time winner of the GrrCon ‘Cage of shame’ lockpicking challenge. I think its great fun, and I’m excited to be able to encourage others in the hobby. Its my goal to ensure that everyone who comes to the meetup walks away having picked at least one lock and that all the veterans learn something from each other.
