Go scavenge the trash. When people replace entry doors they toss out the old door usually with the old lock attached. Grab the door lock and all, bring it home, remove the lock and toss out the door in your trash. Now you have a FREE practice lock for bumping and picking if your into that too!

Your selection runs from Wal-Mart to Home Depot... or any equivalent hardware store, for that matter. I bought a Kwikset cylinder from Home Depot today for $4.95., complete with two keys and mounting hardware. You don't need to go out and buy the complete deadbolt or key-in-knob system, just ask for a replacement rim cylinder.

High quality? Not at all. I would never imagine putting it on my door. But is it a good, functional example of a Kwikset lock? Absolutely. Bump away.

if you do buy a bundle make sure they ane NOT, NOT keyed alike that will make all of them the same, not allowing you different things to try

No one in my area seems to carry "replacement rim cylinders" and most don't even know what they are. I hate Kentucky, this state is so backwards and lost.
The Home Depot website only shows 1 rim cylinder and it's a National, looks like a 5 pin from the picture on their site. Can't tell what key it is though.

You may also check you local locksmith stores and ask them for unused locks.

The best place ive found to get practice locks are old buildings that are being torn down or remodeled most of the time if your willing to remove them yourself the'll say just take them. If you want to practice on vehicle locks go to a wrecking yard and practice on the junk vehicles with auto jigglers of course
