Alchemy description: Lockpicking is <mag>% easier for <dur> seconds.
Enchanting description: Lockpicking is <mag>% easier.
Fortify Lockpicking makes Lockpicking easier.


The following alchemy ingredients can be used to create a potion of Fortify Lockpicking:


The following items use this effect. You can learn how to enchant custom items with Fortify Lockpicking if you find one of the following items and disenchant it:

  • All varieties of Bracers/Gauntlets and Necklaces of Lockpicking
    • Includes the enchantments of Minor Lockpicking, of Major Lockpicking, of Extreme Lockpicking, of Eminent Lockpicking, and of Peerless Lockpicking.

Artifacts and unique items that use the effect but cannot be disenchanted include:


  • Fortify Lockpicking seems to reduce the skill, not enhance it. Exceeding a combined 100% will render all locks non-pickable.
  • If you use the Fortify Restoration glitch to make an overpowered Fortify Lockpicking enchanted piece of apparel or potion (over 15000%), and you have the Locksmith perk, the pick in the lock might swing wildly from side to side of the lock as the game tries to predict where the opening position of the lock is. Keep the percentages below four-digit percentages to prevent this bug. ?
