expired Southord Beginner Pick & Lock Set. $89 with Code + Free Postage @ Pick Pals

PICK10

Wow! the locksmith deals just keep rolling in…

Part of their 12 days of Christmas special, Pick Pals have a really decent kit up for grabs. I know, I know, you can get pick sets cheaper on eBay/Ali, but not this quality, you cant. Southord make some of the nicest picks I have in my set. So this is a good starter kit for maybe people looking to up their picking game and get a real set going. Time to give up the garbage $5 pick sets from Banggood, and get classy.

Kit was $115, discounted to $99, and now with a $10 off code and free postage! But it ends tomorrow!!

Kit Contains:

  • PickPals exclusive Intro Lock Pick Set including leather case. (Nice!)
  • PickPals Expansion Set (Even better, more picks!)
  • Clear Practice Lock (Ohhhh… that looks handy)
  • Easy Pickings Guidebook (If only I could read)
  • FREE EXPRESS SHIPPING – Australia and New Zealand (Even New Zealand???)

Again, as always for the reporters, not illegal, unless you have no reason to have them in your pocket at 3am, four suburbs over from where you live and a balaclava over your face.

        Hi Guys, Pickpals here. There are much cheaper kits on eBay but we don't sell any Chinese tools and there is a reason for that. These picks are made of US steel in the US. This means real quality, these tools are locksmith pro tools and will last you a lifetime. We sell tools for people looking to get into locksport. The lock is a real lock set in plastic rather than a toy plastic lock. We are also based in Australia and ship from Australia.

    Legit question: What kind of money do locksmiths make? How does one start in industry if your not a young fella and can't afford to apprentice for 2 years?

    • +12 votes

      I make not much, because it's only an addon to what I already do for a job. I'm not a full time locksmith, but to give you an idea, one of the 23yo guys at TAFE was driving a brand new 2017 Landcruiser (the 79(??) series ute thingy?)

      Apprenticeship takes 4 years, not 2, 3 of which are spent at TAFE learning. (either 1 days a week or 4 days every 6 weeks on block release.)

      As an older worker, I was offered it at my current pay rate, as we needed a locksmith and I put my hand up. Getting into the industry is easy enough, as there is a shortage of locksmiths and they need more. It may be best to start with an introductory course. I know they run these on week nights and weekends in Sydney and can be used as credit towards an apprenticeship via RPL.

      You may not get full wages, but you are not going to be on a youth wage either. But I find locksmithing really interesting and rewarding. It makes a nice, clean, easy trade compared to being a mechanic.

      If you ring the Master Locksmiths Association and ask them about pay for adult trainees and potential jobs, they may be able to help more than I can.

      God no, I have heaps of tools from Banggood. I rate most of them pretty well. But I’ve found that cheap picks are just that. Cheap picks. Good for learners and cheap, but are just not the same as trade quality tools.

    $89???? You think we are stupid? Under $15 with free postage on ebay.

      Big troll.

        I mean, it’s like being a mechanic. Sure, I can get a toolbox and so,e tools for $15 at supercheap, but I think I’ll go with my Snap On, thanks.

        These are a good beginner set if you are looking to get a trade quality set of picks and build your collection.

        If you have never done picking before, sure, buy a $5 kit from eBay. If you like picking and you have bent and broken all your shit tier quality picks, you can start looking at something a little more classy.

      See above. This is like comparing Daewoo to a Mercedes, you need to compare Apples with Apples.

      You bought a Southord pick set and a clear practice lock for $3.50 including shipping? Nice work. If you find the link, let me know. I would love a set of Southord picks for $3.50

      Hi Snoovey. All our reviews are 100% real. We offer exceptional high service, people love both our products and services and we have over 7000 reviews - not a single fake review. Would like to hear why you think they are sus tho. Try out service and find out why 😊

        I know I'm going to sound like a shill, but the only two places I buy off are locksmithstoolbox (for all my automotive entry gear), and pickpals for all my picking and pinning gear. (LSC wont give us an account and their prices would be astronomical anyway…)

        It's always fast postage and quick with answers to questions. I've never had to do warranty returns (cause they aren't shit Chinese picks) but I would like to think that the return experience is as good as the pre-sales service.

        Never had any issues with quality of products and they sell gear that is trade orientated, so it has the ability to last under day to day usage. So, you can add my review as another happy customer.

    Going to throw in on the lock pick debate, have "cheapies" from one of the reoccuring discount shops on OZB (can't remember who) I paid about $12 and honestly, they are so crappy I can't even give them away.

    Also paid about $55 for a basic set with about $15 more for some rakes on special from PickPals. 100% happy with my PickPal purchase and they are my go to recommendation for pick purchases.
