How Lock Picking Works
This is a sobering thought, to say the least: Is it really possible for someone to open a lock so easily? In this article, we'll look at the very real practice of lock picking , exploring the fascinating technology of locks and keys in the process.
Locksmiths define lock-picking as the manipulation of a lock's components to open a lock without a key. To understand lock-picking, then, you first have to know how locks and keys work. You can get a clear idea of the process of lock picking by examining one simple, representative lock.

Most locks are based on fairly similar concepts. For most of us, the most familiar lock is the standard dead-bolt lock you might find on a front door. In a normal deadbolt lock, a movable bolt or latch is embedded in the door so it can be extended out the side.
This bolt is lined up with a notch in the frame. When you turn the lock, the bolt extends into the notch in the frame, so the door can't move.
When you retract the bolt, the door moves freely. See 4 more pictures.
