wow, i didnt know you can make a lock sloppier than a kwikset! having the lock installed definately makes for a more realistic application of picking. Real world i guess is what it is. I find that its more difficult for me to pick on mounted locks- which is a great reason to do so. once i have a proper work area i will definately have a mounting station though. If the deadbolt you you purchased is doulble keyed maybe you can mount half and have the other half free to fiddle with, that way you have options.
