If you're looking to get started with lock picking as a hobby or for work you will find everything you need listed below. If you're choosing a gift for someone who has an interest in learning lock picking you can’t go wrong with any of the sets below. If you want a quick recommendation grab the Tuxedo set.
What is included in Beginner Lock Pick Sets?
The title “beginner lock pick set” can be a little misleading. All SPARROWS sets are made from the same professional grade steel and finished in the same manner. Every set also includes the necessary tension wrenches to start learning how to pick locks immediately. The only difference between a beginner set and the more advanced sets is the selection of picks and case design. Our more advanced sets are often designed for specific roles that might involve low light, Molle vests, or deep access picking.
All of these beginner sets will have your core lock picks. These are the picks that you will use most often and are the real backbone of any lock pick set. In some situations, a smaller set is also prefered. If this is for carrying on your duty belt or in your under gear weight might be the deciding factor and you may only want to carry the very minimal kickstart set. If this is something you plan to keep at your desk and you would prefer a larger experienced look as our Night School sets. These sets come with practice locks that will aid you in learning how to set pins and pick locks. If you find this all a little overwhelming and want a recommendation, go with the Tuxedo lock pick set. The Tuxedo set has a great balance of hooks and rakes that will cover you for a wide variety of locks. With any of these sets and a weekend of practice you will be able to start picking open padlocks, door locks, and a wide variety of other pin tumbler locks. If you feel like you want more and you like some of the spicy looking sets in the advance section take a look at the Vorax. Once you have your set, YouTube is by far the greatest resource for learning. Search names like bosnian bill, lock picking lawyer and lock noob. You can watch and learn from these great pickers who use and in many cases even helped develop some of our tools and lock picks.
Other Products for Beginners
If you're just starting you might also want to pick up one of our practice locks. We have a few different versions that either get progressively harder as your skills improve or have windows so that you can actually see your lock pick interact with the pins. Just a bit of advice when you are starting out do not pick a lock that you depend on….. stay away from the front door of your house until your lock picking skills improve.
