Let me start by saying that before I bought this set, I have always been intrigued by the art of picking locks. However, I myself have never tried nor done it before. Initially, I was in search of a good beginner set to learn the basics of picking locks. I checked out many different vendors but eventually settled on the Sparrows Night School – Tuxedo Edition lock pick set. The set can be found here:
This set is 100% worth the money. Not only does it come with three locks to get started, but it comes with a good selection of assorted lock picks and tension wrenches to include seven lock picks and five tension wrenches! The three locks it comes with to get you started are standard, spindle, and serrated style locking pins. These beginner locks are great as they give you a side window to be able to see what is going on inside the lock as you attempt to pick them. This helped me greatly by allowing me to understand what each one “feels” like when you do not have that side window.
However, I should warn you if you expect this kit to come with any sort of instructions, or simply a guide on how to learn lock picking, you will be out of luck. You will end up having to do your own research to learn how to pick these training locks. But as the saying goes, “In the world of hacking nothing is impossible, only things that are more challenging.”
