MPXS-08, Perfect Lock Pick Kit For Beginners
This is the SouthOrd MPXS-08 pick set with leather case. Includes 5 lock picks with 2 tension tools and a broken key extractor.
These are stainless steel picks as opposed to spring steel. If you prefer the heavier feel of spring steel, you might wish to check out an HPC pick set, such as the PIP13.
This set is small enough to carry in a shirt pocket and is the perfect choice for a backup set for your shop or mobile vehicle.
Southord is a world leader in fine stainless steel Locksmith tools and this kit is no exception, despite its small size. These tools are as capable of picking open locks as those drawn from any of Southord's larger sets . . . the difference in the MPXS-08 is strictly in the number of tools to choose from. Many professional Locksmiths work with compact pick sets 90% of the time, and I am one of them.
You'll never go wrong choosing Southord picks if you like the feel of light weight stainless steel tools. The MPXS-08 does have rivetless handles to impart just a little more substance to the pick's weight -- something most Locksmiths seem to prefer. The lack of rivets in the handles makes for a smoother surface and is less apt to cause troubles as the picks become worn.
