Very Easy Lockpicking Method
As strange as it sounds, you do not need to turn the bobby pins when lockpicking. Each time you retry a lock before the bobby pin breaks, the sweet spot changes. Sometimes, the sweet spot will be at the start point. So, when the lockpicking screen appears, try and turn the lock. If it doesn't go, back out and try again. I know this works as I have used it to unlock at least a dozens locks. I may take time, but if you suck at lockpicking, this should make it much easier for you.
