Sparrows Expansion Set
If you already own the Kick Start set than this is the next set you need to increase your tool set and the number of locks you can open. With this set you will increase the number of different rakes in your tool kit and build on the speed with which you can open locks. The set also comes with a Shallow Euro for higher security locks. The six tension wrenches are also all different than the ones in your starter set. These picks are the same as the pro lock picks and also come in with the same smooth finish.
Included in this set
1 x Snake rake (Best Buster) 0.025 thick
1 x Half Diamond 0.025 thick
1 x Twin Peak 0.025 thick
1 x Shallow Euro Hook 0.025 thick
6 x Tension Wrenches
The "Small half diamond " Acts like a wedge while manipulating pins in keyways that are arranged in a manner that disallows a hook-type pick.
The Half diamond wedges itself under, and sometimes past the pins that are set too low to get a traditional hook under.
The "Best Buste (Snake rake )" is an altered profile similar to the traditional Snake Rake . This rake is effective on many lock types, but is specifically designed for shallow, sweeping key bitings like those found in Best, Arrow and Falcon locks.
The "Twin Peak" Is most effective on the withdrawal stroke of the makeing it one of the most effective rakes available. It differs from a traditional rake in the way it functions by using a "ramping" effct similar to bumping.
The "Shallow Euro" hook is intended for small and restrictive keyways often found in European, and "high security" locks such as Yale and Chubb. The slack curvature and slender profile allows the pick to slide past set pins and through highly restrictive keyways where a standard short hook is too large to do the job.
All lock picks are manufactured by Sparrows out of American Made 301 Cold Max steel with average tension strength of 280,000 PSI.
The set has changed over the time to improve overall effectiveness.
