"You may only pick locks you own or those you have been given explicit permission to pick."

Locksport is an honest, ethical, and legitimate hobby.  Unfortunately, the whole world hasn't figured that out yet (though we're working on it!).  Because the lay person has a tendency to perceive what we do as somehow nefarious, it is extra important that we commit to following a strict code of ethics. For this reason, the above credo is non-negotiable in the locksport community.  Lockpicking should never, ever be used for illegal or even questionable purposes.  Please do not misuse this information.  We assume no responsibility for your actions, and in no way condone immoral activity.  Help keep locksport fun for all by following strictly the one rule.
