This question suggests that questions about physical lock security are on-topic, and since lock-picking and locksport are huge topics concerning lock security, I think they should be on-topic. While physical security questions aren't nearly as common as IT ones, lock security is still an integral part of security.

Are questions about lock-picking and locksport on-topic?


It would be borderline, as long as the question is about the physical security of information.

The more important issue is if anyone in the community can actually answer the question. Historically, physical security questions do not get a lot of engagement.

    A Chicken and Egg problem. No questions about locks are asked, no experts are attracted. A lack of experts causes people not to ask questions.

  • @MechMK1 yep - not a criteria for not asking the question, just a reality to consider when choosing here to ask the question.
