Question from MerDaKai

How to use console command 'lock'?

i am wanting to work up my lockpicking skill but hate having to travel for what seems like forever until i find another locked door or chest.
i have a chest targeted, my cursor is on the chest and its asking me to Search chest. I want to lock this chest but the lock command isnt working. i know i type in lock, but what do i put after that? using words 'adept' and what not do nothing, but when i type a number after lock it gives no error, but the chest remains unlocked.
could anyone please explain how to use the Lock command or what i am doing wrong.

If you are using console commands, you might aswel do it "fully" and just set the desired lockpicking level.
[You can skill it up as you'd "opened" 100000 containers and receive levels, or you can set it to 100 without changing level gain.]

Otherwise, when you have the console tab open, you have to use the cursor and select the desired object and the level you wish to lock the container with.

There is another cheat "player.incpcs (skill)" just type it in and substitute lockpicking for (skill) and that'll
also work.

Ok first bring up the console. Then while in the console push the container with the left mouse button and an ID for the container shows in the console. Now put in the code lock and a number after it.
If the chest is not locked try pushing a different spot of the check until it changes the ID and try the command again. Some times it doesn't give you the ID of the chest even if you push it so maybe try another chest.

Most of the time these errors are caused from not pushing the right spot and sometime, sadly, you can't push some items at all and pushing will instead give the ID of the floor or wall or something else.
