Make Your Own Tools!
As usual, if you are new, you're welcome! We'll run a beginner class for the first 20 minutes or so to get you acclimated and get you the basics. This month we will focus on making our own tools! We will primarily focus on turning tools as we had a new member bring a large number of windshield wiper blades. I also have some fish tape we can use to make picks. If you have any materials you think can be made into picking related tools, bring those as well. As always, feel free to bring any locks you want to share or show off, new acquisitions, or interesting tools. We love to geek out about locks!

What we're about

Public Group

L.I is made up of people who are interested in physical security, such as bypassing locks or learning new techniques for opening difficult locks.

We abide by the laws set down in each State or Province (For our Canadian neighbors). Likewise we have our own code of ethics we adhere to. They're almost all common sense rules that you should always practice. You should never pick locks that you don't own, or that you don't have the owners explicit permission to pick. We enjoy helping the community, not hurting it.

The membership fee is not required. If you wish to support the organization, get a quality photo membership card, and participate in nationally registered competition, then you may pay the fee. All are welcome to come, learn and have fun!
