ADD A CLEAR LOCK OPTION
A Clear lock is a great aid to help you increase the speed with which you learn or Teach lock picking.
Being able to see the pins move and hit the sheer line will give you a faster appreciation for the feedback that you feel with the picks.
A standard pin Clear lock will pick in the same way as almost all pad locks and standard front door locks.
Clear locks are also perfect for both left and right handed pickers.
The “Standard short hook” or lifter is the first “go-to” pick in the arsenal. This Pick is more versatile and is used more often than any other pick. It is designed to let the picker feel of the intricacies of the lock and manipulate pins individually. When the pick is used in a raking type technique it is also possible to work several pins at the same time. This pick is good for a wide range of keyway types, and pinning arrangements.
The “Offset Hybrid” is a combination of a shallow hook, and a rounded half diamond. The wedge-like point and specially rounded bottom edge slides through the keyway. With the pick acting as a centered fulcrum you will find that this pick has extremely smooth and controlled lifts. This is critical for locks like ASSA.
All lock picks are manufactured by Sparrows out of American Made 301 Cold Max steel with average tension strength of 280,000 PSI.
This Set has changed over the time to improve its overall effectiveness.
As more information and new methods are developed it only makes sense to change the Kick start, Expansion Set and Grad to fulfill their rolls as steeping stones in developing a great picking set.
To do this the kick start needs to have the 4 most practical picks, then the expansion and grad must build on top of that set.
