Terms and Conditions
LockpickExtreme.com sells and provides lockpicking, shimming, and bypass tools for locks and handcuffs. Once these products are delivered, you–and only you, are liable for how the products are used. LockpickExtreme.com is not liable for incidental or consequential damages that may occur when using tools purchases through our site.
We also strongly suggest anyone interested in lockpicking check out our “Is Lockpicking Legal?” section, particularly the “Golden Rules of Lockpicking.” The legality of lockpicks and their possession is governed by each individual state. Certain countries also have laws specific to lockpicking tools and their possession. Anyone who owns, or is considering owning, lockpicking tools should consult their local laws, as well as the laws of any area they may travel to. It is the responsibility of the buyer, not LockpickExtreme.com, to follow and obey all applicable laws pertaining to the possession and use of items ordered. By placing an order, the buyer asserts that the products will be used in a lawful manner and that they are of legal age.
Lockpick Extreme is committed to providing fun and informative lockpicking/handcuff information and equipment. We are also dedicated to safeguarding all personal information collected online.
