I finally did it!
I've been saying for about a year now that I'm going to learn how to pick locks as part of our homeschool curriculum. I bought stuff for this purpose before Thanksgiving. And, today, I finally got everything out and boys and I spent a lovely afternoon learning how to pick locks. :)
Not like we're experts yet or anything. ;) But we watched some videos and looked at diagrams and messed around a LOT with the materials we have. What we've learned so far is that handcuffs are pretty easy to get out of:
And pin and tumbler sets are considerably more difficult...
(In case you're wondering, I got supplies here.)
The main set has pin and tumbler sets ranging from one pin to five pins (five pins being much more difficult obviously). So far I've only succeeded in picking the one pin lock. :( The boys are up to the three pin lock.
I foresee boys working on and practicing this particular skill for awhile... ;)
