The mission of The Open Organization Of Lockpickers is to advance the general public knowledge about locks and lockpicking. By examining locks, safes, and other such hardware and publicly discussing our findings, we hope to strip away the mystery with which so many of these products are imbued.
All are welcome. If you have any locks or tools, feel free to bring them. If not, there are plenty to go around. Meetings generally consist of people picking locks while we talk about physical or cyber security, or just about anything else.
