Those guys are always talking about their locks and projects.

I’m looking to get some basic picks.

I’m looking for a set suitable for opening all pin and tumbler locks, through raking or SPP.

I’ll mostly be doing padlocks and door locks.

Can you recommend a product at or under $50?

That’s an easy one, if you’re not sure where to start the PickPals Intro Set is a great set without outlaying to much money. Very popular and a great start to your set, you can expand from here.


However if you want a great set the Nine pce slim set is my pick. I have the 22 pce of this set. These are great picks with metal handles and provide great feedback for only $45 delivered.


Guide to Lock Pick Sets Australia

We offer only the best quality products and superior customer service. We were the first online shop selling Lock Picks in Australia and New Zealand, we are here to stay!

PickPals is actively involved in the Lock Picking community and supports a number of organisations around Australia and New Zealand.

First up, track your parcel on the Australia Post website (or the New Zealand Post website if you’re in New Zealand). You’ll find your tracking code in the shipping confirmation email or alternately, log in to PickPals and see the status of your order.

If things aren’t making sense in the tracking, we’re happy to help out. That said, due to restrictions with Australia Post, we can’t get any answers until the package is more than three days late if ship express or seven days late if standard shipping based on the shipping times.

That means if we were sending to Sydney via Regular Post, more than 9 days need to have passed before we can get answers about what’s going on. We know it’s not ideal, but we have to play by Australia Post’s rules, especially at busy times of the year like Christmas and Easter.

So if your package is more than three days late if ship express or more than seven days late if standard shipping, drop us a line and be sure to include your name, order number, tracking number, and contact information so we can find out what’s going on for you.

If you ordered a backorder product with other items the order will be processed as a single order, we may be waiting on the items to arrive.

Check the stock to see if the back ordered item is now in stock.

@PickPals, we do our best to ensure you are kept up to date with your order of new Lock Picks! Emails are automated once your order has been completed. Check the email if it hasn’t gone to your junk/spam folder.

New Zealand Free shipping orders don’t receive a tracking number, however, all orders do receive a status update when the order has been completed. Tracking can be purchased for a small fee, which includes faster delivery time and peace of mind.
