The Best Lock Pick Set
Our Vote For The Best Lock Pick Set -- Goes To:
If there is a single question we get the most of, over any given period of time, it would have to be, "which lock pick set is the best for (fill in the blank here)?"
Customers want to purchase the exact pick set that is "made for" the specific lock or job they are involved with -- or they want to make sure they get the very best "overall" pick set. There's no faulting that logic, but as for buying a set that is specifically for a certain type of lock . . . that is not generally possible. There are individual picks that are made for specific types of locks (tubular picks for tubular locks), but pick sets are pretty general. Most are made to pick pin tumbler locks (except in the automotive category where almost all locks are wafer, side-bar, or disk type).
That leaves us to consider popularity as the most reliable measure for coming up with the best pick set. A product will never become popular if it's anything less than steller quality, and it will not sell all that well if its price isn't reasonable. So here goes, our short list of the "best" pick sets accordingly to how popular they've been over the years:
We have sold more of this pick set over the years than any other. It is of high quality, the perfect size, and comes in a very nice genuine leather zipper case that has fold out wing pouches for easy access to the picks. It contains 10 spring steel picks (four of them with stainless steel handles), 4 tension wrenches of various types and 2 broken key extractors. Click on the image for current price and/or to purchase. You really can't go wrong with this exemplary pick set, unless of course you prefer stainless steel picks.

Again, if popularity is any indication, this is our vote for the best assortment that comes with stainless steel picks. Southord has moved to the forefront in the realm of stainless steel lock picks, in part because they are not over priced like some other brands and they are dependable. Beginners seem to take to them easily, and the MPXS-08, while not a large set, contains every one of the most common pick styles (hook, rake, ball, etc.) that you'll ever likely need. With 8 tools and a very small footprint, the MPXS-08 has proven to be our biggest seller over the years in stainless steel pick sets. We've had virtually no complaints or returns after selling literally hundreds of these sets. What does that tell you? Pick one up right now, we have them ready to ship.
