Welcome to the wiki for building the new guide on lock picking. Once we have enough material, we will turn it into a nice PDF file, which will be free to all. If you are coming here to learn how to pick locks, feel free to look around, but you are probably too early. However, if you can pick locks, and are willing to write about it, you are just the sort of person we want on this project. Note that this is not restricted to members of any particular forum or organization; anyone who can help is welcome, but do not add references to your forums, organization, or clubs in the main text, this site should be for everyone.
Try to respect other peoples changes, and not spoil their good work, but if you have better ideas try them out. The golden rule is that the site should be improved by your contribution.
