Players can obtain a lockpick by killing rogues, by picking bandits' pockets (with level 53 Thieving), or by buying it from another player. They can also buy them from Martin Thwait's Lost and Found in the Rogues' Den, but they must have at least 50 Thieving and 50 Agility to do so. 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 locks that can break the lockpick. Alternatively you could bring a hair clip, they do not break but they can not be used on chests either. The Master thief's lockpick reward from safecracking remedies both problems.
