LONG HOOK PICK, SP-08, FROM SOUTHORD - For single pin picking
The process of picking a lock using manual picks is often a two part deal: You start out with raking the cylinder, hoping to get at least some of the top pins trapped above the shear line as a good start. Then you pull out a hook pick to find the few stations that haven't been picked. You need a long hook when you have to work the pick under a picked stack to get to an unpicked stack that is hidden behind it. This long hook has no reinforced metal handle so it is very light weight and passes 'feel' to the locksmith's fingers very well.
