    I would like to know how to pick a lock out of sheer curiosity and amusement, not for illegal purposes.

    The lock on my door is a Union lock (and says 296A in tiny writing above the lock). I dont know how many pins it has, but I have tried a few times (the paper clip method) but the pins dont stay up/in place, and since I cant get them to go up all at once, I cant do it.

    Does anyone know/could tell me? Or know any good videos on lock picking/pins that wont stay in place? No time wasters please, and dont just google "lock picking" and send me to a site, I've spent an hour doing that already.

    If you break the lock, I wouldn't fancy paying that bill.

    You would probably need a locksmith to show you how to do it and they are not going to do that.

    google anarchists cookbook, and note how it say's it will most likely take you hours. Then take into account anarchists cookbook is exaggerated to make things cool and volatile, and realise it will take you days.

    You need to use a screw driver to try to turn the lock as you run the paper clip from back to front along the pins, that way the pins will stay up because they are slightly out of alignment. I suggest you have a better look on the internet since that's where I found that method out a few years ago.
