Lockpicking & LockFest 2021

In the end, it passed quickly and finally we have a great event – LockFest. LockFest is a major international exhibition, a major event in the Czech Republic, where the security comes together. Foreign manufacturers and exhibitors, technicians and specialists from this field come here. The LockFest event is primarily intended for people dedicated to the security of persons and property, people in the services of private detectives or the government security area, providers of technical services for the protection of property and persons. After all, professional development is an integral part of each of us! And last but not least, the LockFest exhibition is intended for the general public, because people will get information and solutions on how best to secure their properties, houses, apartments or cars. You will find us at stand number 24 and in the back of the training area.

At this exhibition, in addition to the possibility of purchasing equipment, at various types of training, those interested will learn trends in comprehensive commercial security and you can try lockpicking or take part in a mini-competition in lockpicking.

Those more capable can compete in our mini-competition on Saturday afternoon.


It’s not our age-old championship in lockpicking, but the competition is one of the spectacular events! And that’s why at least we will organize a mini-competition in lockpicking. Registration for the competition will take place on site until 12:45 on the day of the event.

What to bring: own equipment (plates, tension tools and vices)

Something more: the mini-competition is prepared for a maximum of 21 participants, ie a maximum of 3 tables of 7 competitors – 7 competition rounds per preliminary round. Subsequently, according to the performances, there will be an A&B final. Where a maximum of 15 competitors can advance to the A&B finals, ie. The 2 best competitors from the preliminary round from each table will advance to final A (maximum number of competition rounds will be 6), to final B the next 3 competitors from the preliminary round of each table will advance (maximum number of competition rounds will be 9).
