What is the LockPickingLawyer’s Name? 

The LockPickingLawyer’s first name is Harry. His last name is not known and this is because Harry prefers to be only known by his YouTube name and not have his identity linked to his YouTube profile.

There are several tweets that name the LockPickingLawyer by his first name but there are no sources we have discovered that show his full name.

Bosnian Bill also calls him by his first name, harry, in this video where the LockPickingLawyer goes to get some challenge locks that Bosnian Bill has been unable to pick.

Who is the LockPickingLawyers Wife?

If you have been wondering who the lockpicking lawyer’s wife is, unfortunately, this information is not available on the internet. The LockPickingLawyer prefers to keep his identity hidden on the internet this means knowing his wife is even more difficult.

He does speak about his wife in this video though.

While we are sure she is ultimately supportive of her husband’s work in creating these videos obviously this one she finds a little embarrassing, to show friends at least. As shown in this tweet by the LockPickingLawyer.
