The Complete Book of Locks and Locksmithing - 6E

Bill Phillips

THE MOST COMPLETE LOCKSMITHING GUIDE YOU CAN FIND

The top reference in the field since 1976, this book is perfect for everyone from beginners who want to master techniques step by illustrated step, to pros who need an up-to-date, comprehensive shop manual.

Whether you want to learn lockpicking or locksmithing, or choose locks that are virtually impossible to defeat, this classic will meet your needs.

Great for independent or classroom study, the Sixth Edition features:

  • Complete, illustrated coverage from a master locksmith.
  • Techniques and tips for lockpicking and fixing.
  • Safe opening and servicing techniques.
  • Coverage of electronic and high-security mechanical locks.
  • Auto lock opening and servicing how-tos.
  • An all-new Registered Locksmith test.
  • How to conduct a home security survey
  • Lists of tool and equipment sources
  • How to start and run a locksmithing business, or get hired as a locksmith.

"It's hard to find technical details on this subject: locksmiths are relatively close-mouthed about the craft of their trade. Laypeople to professionals will thus find this a winning reference: it covers all types of locks and keys from old-fashioned to modern electromagnetic locks and vending machines, providing the basics of locksmithing and different system operations." -- Midwest Book Review, on a previous edition
