Lockpick Village

Want lockpicking at your next event?

We can entertain and educate groups of all sizes

Augusta Locksports can provide a lockpick village for your conventions, maker faires, schools, and other events. Depending on how large of a space you have available for the village, we can teach 3-5 people per 6ft table. Our team is ready with locks that range in difficulty so that everyone feels like they have something to work on. From simple wafer locks to locks with two or more discrete locking mechanisms, we have a fully loaded lockpick crate that we bring with us. We supply all the tools for the lockpick village and, in addition to teaching how to pick standard pin and tumbler locks, we also have the equipment to teach lock bumping, safe cracking, and vehicle entry. You don’t have to supply or buy locks and tools for your event, we have it all!

To make sure that your attendees are getting the best experience at you event, we have a few options. Contact us at info@augustalocksports.org if you need more information or would like to have us at your event. Out of respect to all of our schedules, we ask that you contact us for information at least one month in advance.

These can be scheduled multiple times during the event based on the amount of people interested. We require a room that can hold at least four 6ft tables. This will allow us to teach up to 25 people per session. Tables, chairs, projector and screen must be provided by the venue.

The price of the Classroom Experience includes lockpicking tools for each participant. These come at a $5 discount off of the normal price. It is suggested that you add this option to your ticketing process to make sure you have a headcount before the event, this count should be given to Augusta Locksports at least two weeks in advance of your event.
