We are a voluntary independent organization focused on lockpicking, i.e., non-destructive opening of locks. Our association was established in 2010, we are the oldest association of lockpickers in the Czech Republic and one of the oldest in Europe. For nearly a decade we have been organizing international lockpicking championships.
Lockpicking is a hobby and sport for us. Most of our members are professionals: locksmiths, safe technicians and other security experts but some play with locks in their spare time. We are aware that lockpicking can be misused and we are working hard to educate the general public about vulnerabilities of locks. We organize lectures at universities (Czech Technical University in Prague, the University of Technology in Brno), various international conventions (ELF 2017 in Prague or LockFest in Karlovy Vary) and other events, where we promote good physical security. We try to collaborate with lock manufacturers as much as possible to make locks safer for everyone.
