I am learning fast that a couch doesn't make the best place to pick locks. Especially recliner couches. If you drop anything it is pretty much guaranteed to fall into a crack and since the cushions are attached to the frame it will if you are lucky fall to the floor where you have to crawl under the recliner to get it or if unlucky it ends up somewhere in the couch. So far the best place I ave found for picking is a computer chair at a desk or table since if you drop anything there is no furniture for it to get stuck inside of. Although I am just now realizing a couch with a slip cover would be good since the tools wouldn't fall into the cracks though it can still hit the floor and go under the couch.
