About Lock Pickers Mall and George Robertson,
professional locksmith for more than 35 years.
Back in 1983 this site's owner and Administrator, George Robertson, was a 24 hour/7 day a week Professional Locksmith working in Salt Lake City, Utah. That is, he was a struggling 24 hour/7 day a week professional. He had just changed careers, and was near the bottom of the financial well due to the unfortunate turn of prosperity that often accompanies a divorce that includes real estate loss. He was just starting out as a Locksmith with virtually no prior experience -- professional in definition only (if the endeavor you are involved in provides your major income, you are a professional in that field).
He built up a thriving mobile Locksmith career over the ensuing years, but doing so was difficult because there were so few resources from which to draw, both in terms of tools and inventory and, especially, in terms of a knowledge base. In short, he pretty much had to teach himself thru the school of hard knocks. Experience without formal instruction is an effective but harsh way to go. In those days there were precious few Internet sources (at least for beginner Locksmiths) and it wouldn't have mattered if there were because he had no PC until around 1995. Money was tight and going to a formal school -- even a local college -- was not feasible.
Add to all this the fact that this new career was starting up when George was in his fifties.
After nearly twenty years, gaining invaluable experience that comes with working 'in the field' day after day and acquiring important contacts and contracts, George decided to make locksmith supplies and training tools available to others online. He put all his efforts into building a web site dedicated to helping others who might be trying to start out in this business, and www.LockPickersMall.com was born in 1998. It has been continuously online since then, growing in both size and following, and the focus has always been to make it easier for newcomers to the Locksmith World to get hold of the knowledge, the tools and the training aids (most especially lock picking practice tools).
