Open Lock, as part of the Alteration skill, is a spell that opens a locked container or door. The magnitude is the highest lock level that can be opened. Casting an Open Lock spell on a door with a too high a lock level for the spell increases your Alteration indefinitely. Also, by a very small random chance, Open Lock might open a lock of a higher skill than you have (ex: opening an average lock with skill for only easy locks - every 1 in 200 or so cases).
