The 2 Day TradeLocks Vehicle Opening Course-How Was it for You?

On the second day of the TradeLocks Vehicle Opening Course, both Richard Breslin and Martin Pink thought it would be an excellent idea to focus on specific locks, such as Ford. Ford locks are notoriously difficult to pick but, seeing as Ford models are the most popular make of car on the road by a considerable margin, anyone looking to make a name for themselves in the auto locksmith trade needs to be relatively competent when dealing with Ford locks, otherwise their services will be somewhat limited. Therefore, Ford lock picking is an essential skill to master, which is why Martin and Richard (both of who are respected authorities when it comes to the fine art of Lishi) wanted to concentrate on this particular aspect of Lishi-picking in order for trainees to develop and expand their skills and become more knowledgeable and confident in the process. ... read more >
