We put together the Level 2 Lock Picking Practice Kit as a step up from the Complete Starter Kit No. 1. This kit has the same SouthOrd MPXS-08 lock pick set and also includes the great CD-ROM, "The Locksmith's Master Resource."
The kit also includes three high quality Practice Locks, as follows:
(1) 3-Pinned Standard
(1) 5-Pinned Standard
(1) 5-Pinned CUT AWAY
The Cut Away model is a perfect visual aid as well as a functioning practice lock. Beginners who have had little or no lock picking experience will benefit greatly by using this precisely milled lock cylinder in practice sessions, as they will see what goes on inside the lock as they work with it. The 3-Pinned standard lock is a good starting point for getting to recognize the feedback that comes through the lock pick as the lock is eventually picked. Most people progress past the 3-pinned model quite quickly. Note that all these practice locks can be REKEYED by anyone who has rekeying experience and the proper tools. You can take them to your local locksmith or hardware store to have them rekeyed (repinned) for a very small cost.
