What is Locksport

What is Locksport, Anyway?

Locksport is competitive lock picking. Simply put analog locks, mechanical locks, everyday locks are puzzles for some.  Picking locks can very much similar to solving a Rubik’s cube, except you’re unable to see the colors, so if you like puzzles, and any challenges you will fall in love with locksport.

Locksport is very much so like hacking which centers itself around a need for knowledge and understanding of how the things work and are constructed. When attacking a lock you have to consider: the difficulty of strength of the device, the best tool or tools to use in the attack, and the most viable approach and or direction of manipulation of the device in the attack. When a locksporter or lock picker explores a lock often enough the soft touch and not the brute force will win the challenge.
