Since the very beginning, SPARROWS has always made it possible for you to add to your sets in a way that will ensure you do not end up with doubles or useless picks you do not want to own. The majority of SPARROWS sets also come with cases that have extra room allowing you to expand your collection and still fit all your tools in the same case. From Engraved to varying widths SPARROWS has a wide range of picks all available for single purchase.
Should I get a Single Lock Pick or a set?
If you are just starting out, you're going to want to get a set and not just a single pick. Single picks do not come with tension wrenches or cases. By having just a single pick and no tension wrench it's like being in a car with no engine …. You're not going anywhere. If you want a recommendation for a great starting lock pick set look at our kick start or tuxedo sets. If you want a recommendation for single picks look at the Tron in the monstrum picks, the SSDeV hooks, The Warlock, The octo the offset hybrid, the lunatic. If you are going after euro locks search our thinner material .015 and .015 to navigate that more restrictive keyways often found on European locks. If you want to add a bit of flash, all of our engraved picks can also be found in this single section liek the Sandman, Reflection and Medusa. All SPARROWS Engraved picks feature unique art that has been done in house giving your picks a bit more edge.
Are single picks a great Father's day gift?
No, not at all. What are you thinking? The poor guy goes to work everyday to support you and you want to get him one lock pick? What the hell will he do with one pick? Worst idea ever. Maybe a set like the tuxedo set but also get the big guy some craft beer and make a card. I don’t care how old you are, put in the effort and make a card….. and glue stuff on it and maybe add a coupon to wash the car.
Why Choose Sparrows’ Individual Lock Picks
All our Single picks are made from the same stainless steel as you would find in our sets and often come with the option to add a handle for added comfort. We are often asked about handles on our thinner material like .015 and unfortunately it is not possible. Getting a nice handle on a pick involves heating the pick. This hot pick is then dipped into the thermal rubber and it adheres to the pick. The hotter the pick the more material adheres. The thinner picks dissipate heat too quickly to get enough material on them for a nice handle
