Welcome to the Toool website
Toool is the The Open Organisation Of Lockpickers, a growing group of enthusiasts interested in locks, keys and ways of opening locks without keys. On this site you will find information about us getting together to practice our skills, about the conventions and championships we organize and lots and lots of information about our hobby.
This website is in English because most of the information on it is in English and because we found that the majority of our (web) visitors is not from the Netherlands.
Toool was founded in 2002 in Amsterdam. In 2006, a local chapter in Eindhoven was founded. They both have regular meetings (once every other week). Members of Toool are welcome in both cities. People from abroad are welcome too to become a member. Especially from Belgium as there is no lockpicking group in Belgium. For Germany, see the pages of the Sportfreunde der Sperrtechnik.
The USA has a Toool US that was founded in 2005.
In the UK, a Toool UK has just been formed in 2014.
Both groups are separate legal entities, but they have strong bonds with Toool NL.
You cannot visit them without advance notification. Please see the gatherings-page for more information.
