Keys 101

Here I will be explaining the different types of keys you guys can have and also how to pick a lock! This post is brought to you by my business at  Redbridge London Locksmith

This is a skill I learned when I was starting up my new business.  It is a  very useful trait to have but not in a sneaky way! Do not break into any ones house (haha) So, what I will tell you is to be careful who you teach as well. If you have a specific key which is not mentioned in the video, contact me here.

Lock picking can take a few weeks to a month so don’t be discouraged if you don’t get it right away, keep trying and don’t give up. You get many types of locks in the world and unfortunately, there is no one stop ticket method for all locks. This is why it is important to learn how to pick a lock using various different methods.

I will explain all the different types of methods in the next post to give my audience  a better understanding of what to do. It is important to pay close attention to detail.  Back in 1950 there was a huge buzz about being a lock smith.

Check out the history here:

This website will allow you to learn the fundamentals of lock smith history. It started in Egypt approximately 400 years ago. The interesting thing is, they made padlocks out of copper wire. I will also be discussing padlocks in future posts. They are very interesting too.

Keys have been used from the beginning of time and used for everything from doors, to cars, to safes. They are now pretty much inexpensive and can be cut and shaped as you want. I have noticed as well as people can now add their own designs to them too which is great.
