Players can obtain a lockpick by picking rogues' pockets (with level 32 Thieving), by picking bandits' pockets (with level 53 Thieving), or by buying it from another player. They can also buy one from Martin Thwait in the Rogues' Den, but they must have at least 50 Thieving and 50 Agility to do so. Many players in the Rogues' Den are willing to buy lockpicks for others. After completing Buyers and Cellars (and the capers From Tiny Acorns and Lost Her Marbles), they may also be bought from Dodgy Derek in the Thieving Guild. They can also be obtained by looting a Young impling jar. There is a spawn near the end of Yanille Agility Dungeon in the small room containing the pile of rubble that has to be climbed before fighting Salarin the Twisted. To access this room, a player must have either 67 Agility to cross the monkey bar, or 82 Thieving and a lockpick to open the door in the basement of the house beside Yanille bank.
The lockpick may also break when used (only in some cases), so it is advised to bring a number of lockpicks when picking on locks in which can break the lockpick.
