When the time comes for the amateur locksmith to cut his or her teeth on the most challenging of practice cylinders, LockPickShop is ready with the 6 Pinned Standard Schlage Practice Cylinder. Beginning students in the process of picking a lock will generally start out by practicing rudimentary basics on a 2 pinned cylinder. After that, they'll graduate to the somewhat more complex workings of the 3 pinned, and, eventually, the 5 pinned practice cylinder. Once all those milestones are passed, the locksmith apprentice can come closer to achieving expert status with the highly sophisticated 6 pinned practice lock. In fact, the 6 pinned model can even be used by advanced technicians to polish and hone their already-expert skills just to stay sharp. Whether you're learning, practicing or perfecting lock picking, do it on a practice cylinder and save money by avoiding the purchase of a complete lock set or hunting down used locks on which to practice.
