1 Lockbox Cracker
Did you ever curse at other players placing their lockboxes in the will not trade slot without asking you? Did you ever forget your keybinding of Pick Lock? ("Ah, how could I forget, I bound it to left curly bracket!") Were you ever starting to get slightly annoyed by having to move your mouse for several kilometers from your action bars to click Pick Lock back to the trade window and back and forth and ba... if one of your friends casually comes by with a pile of boxes?
The Answer is here!
This is a very simple addon without the need of any configuration. It is only loaded on rogue classes. If a player trades you any type of lockbox in the will not trade slot, alt-clicking will mark it for cracking.
Additionally, you can also alt-click any locked lockbox in your inventory. It will instantly start getting cracked.
Lock picking has never been so elegant!
2 Cracking Does Not Work?
If the addon does not work, you are probably on a language not tested/supported yet. Just write a comment with your game version (retail/classic) and I will look into it. Currently the addon works for German, English, French and Spanish clients. Bag Addons could possibliy interfere with this addon. However, the ones I have tested did not cause any problems.
If you stumble across any error messages or would like to have a new feature, write a comment here, ingame to Armak-Frostwolf (EU)/Michigras-Lucifron (EU) or via Michi#2174.

v8.2.0 build 3 (Jul 21, 2019)
- Complete code rewrite, allowing much better accessibility
- You can now just alt-click lockboxes in your inventory to open them
- To open a lockbox for someone else you alt-click the lockbox in the no-trade slot. After that your pick lock spell activates as if you've just clicked it from your spell book. You then have to cast it onto the lockbox. As far as I know, you cannot open a no-trade lockbox with only one click.
- Added a small text to a lockbox's tooltip
- Future lockboxes most probably will be crackable without the need of an addon update, as the code does not depend on their item ids any more
