4.0 out of 5 stars Practice, practice, practice. 9 Jan 2012
By Damian

This compact board offers exactly what the title says: the chance to practice your lock picking skills.

Approximately 3/4 inch thick, the board is about 7 1/2 inches tall with a base around 4 inches square. It is, as mentioned in the US review, made from a compressed particle board but does not seem flimsy or weak. I cannot see how the US reviewer's unit fell apart unless they were using considerable force, had got the board wet or received a damaged item. I have not yet tried this board using the key bumping technique but again, unless extreme force is used, I cannot see how even that could have caused damage.

The listing states that the locks may vary but mine arrived as pictured. The top left lock is a Yale type - mine was made by Sterling - and offers the most difficulty of the three regular style locks. The upper right lock - by Baton - is a Euro cylinder (or Euro lock) and is the other way up to a Yale, with the pins at the bottom; it offered very little in the way of a challenge when picking. The lower left lock is the same sort you'd see on filing cabinets or many cash boxes and is also very easy to pick. The lower right lock is a tubular lock of the sort you'd find on vending machines and some cheaper safes. To open a tubular lock you really need a tubular lock pick like the Southord 7 Pin Tubular Pick or, at around half the price, the GOSO 7 Pin Tubular Lock Pick 7.5MM. You could spend ages picking each of the (usually) seven pins, one by one, with regular picks, but your chances of success are extremely limited.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for the Beginner 18 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase
Bought at the same time as my lock picking set and visual guide book I have been delighted with this product.
It is not a toy and presents a real challenge.
I am so satisfied I have since bought a second practise board and it won't stop there!

Locksmith's Lock Picking Practice Board Number 5

Bought this practice board for my husband to play with while he was recovering from an operation, he has always had an interest in locks so i thought this would give him something to do and stop "cabin fever "setting in!
The board is well made and remains stable on a table top or bench enabling you to use both hands to pick the locks,ours came with the same locks as shown in the picture which gives great picking practice on the pin tumbler types using ordinary lock picks but you will need a tublar pick tool for the lock on the bottom right.
Overall great product nicely thought out and well made.

I wanted a demonstration board for training purposes but could not be bothered to make one when I saw the price of this. A well presented product.

If you wanting to get in to lock picking then this is a must, great for beginners, if you are buying new lock picking equipment then this is ideal to test them out

A very nice set of different locks, Its well worth the investment and if you master them with a little DIY you can swap the locks out for new ones.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great!! 8 Oct 2013
By Jamie

Just what I expected from reading the other reviews.
Works we'll if you want to change the lock provided.
Locks provided can prove a challenge if you do not have the correct tools.
Only issue is with the board(suggest screwing it to a work bench for stability).
All in all a good buy
