Pretty simple really:

Find yourself a lock to pick. Any lock will do, but one that only has 3 pins will be ideal.

Found your lock? Okay, now before engaging the lock, save your game. Now just go ahead and pick the lock normally, and this is important: remember where you have the cn_LS positioned for each pin. In fact, do the cn_LS rotation as slowly as possible to make sure the positions are correct. Also keep in mind that the vibration on your controller is a better indicator of the pin position than the circles on the screen.

Now reload your game. You should be right at the lock, ready to pick it. The positions of the pins are exactly what they were before you re-loaded.

Pick the lock and quickly put the cn_LS into the memorized positions and pull the cn_RT between each one.

If you miss it, re-load and try it again. The pin positions will remain the same so you can keep trying until the achievement pops.

Note that it has not been confirmed whether or not you need to upgrade your lockpick fully to pull this off. So if you're having trouble, then buy the upgrades from the vendor in the Crippled Burrick right near where you met Basso. He's the icon that's the white circle with the bow in it on your map.

UPDATE: Some commenters have found that they had to let cn_LS idle in between pulling cn_RT for each pin. Still others have said that you can simply spin cn_LS around and spam cn_RT and it'll work as well. So if you're still having trouble unlocking this, try either of those steps and see if they work for you.
