Following on from recent success in The USA, Netherlands, Germany and other locations around the world is Manchester’s very own LockSport meeting. These meetings are held every month on the third Saturday of the month and last usually around four hours. We welcome people from all backgrounds and there’s no need to actually even need to know what LockSport is or how a lock works! We’ll teach you all you need to know. We welcome professionals, hobbyists and people who are just curious about what we do. In fact, you may just be interested in how locks work and not necessarily picking them, you’re also welcome too.

These meetings are a great way to meet up with other members of the community you may or may not already know, geek out over locks and test your skills against other hobbyists & professionals. The meets we have had in London have been a great success and are proving to be just as enjoyable in Manchester.

However, a few things to bear in mind:
This is not a well organised course! It is a meet up and a locksport session. Do not expect presentations, classes, public speakers or much of a structure. This is an informal event as these things traditionally are, we will have tools to use, locks to open and brains to pick.
This is not a locksmith training course!

This is not a criminal training session! We open locks not doors, opening a lock on a door or attached to something is a very different skill and quite simply not an effective way to commit a crime.

We won’t be teaching bumping or bypass techniques although you may run into some.
