If you're into single pin picking and tend to work with higher security locks you might prefer to grab a collection of our hook picks all in one set. If you're looking for speed it's all about raking locks open. Rake profile lock picks are used in very quick motions that zip the pick under all the pins quickly bumping them. This quick hit transfers energy to the pins and causes them to jump inside the lock. When done correctly the top pins jump leaving a gap at the sheer line allowing the lock to open. Compared to hook picks that tend to be used for lifting one pin at a time it’s a very different attack
Do I need Rakes or Hooks?
It's best to have a well balanced collection of hooks and rakes and these sets are great for adding to any existing lock pick collection you might have. If you do not own a pick set you would be better served to look at sets in our beginner section like the kick start or Tuxedo. If you are planning to use this for one duty work such as police, fire, Military speed tends to be the deciding factor and a collection of raking picks is the way to go.
