Tinkering is used to create various tools from metal (ingots). Use tinker's tools to open the Tinkering Trade Gump. Tinkering can be used in conjunction with Blacksmithing, Tailoring, and Carpentry to make a variety of different items.
The tinkering skill can also be used to lock containers (as part of the container crafting process as a Carpenter), such as the lockboxes in your home, and trap them.

Note* You can gain skill very high in tinkering by making copies of your keys. Simply double click a blank key and target a key to make a copy of it. Blank keys can be purchased from tinker NPC's for a much lower price per unit than it costs to craft them.
