In many routes, it is necessary to steal the shovel and the bow from the shopkeeper.

In order to steal from the shopkeeper, the shopkeeper needs to be looking up or right while you are exiting the shop. The shopkeeper looks toward Link alternating between 32 frames and 96 frames. Therefore, the optimal strategy for the shopkeeper is to stand above him and wait for him to look, then wait about half a second and then go for the exit.
