Frequently Asked Questions
The tracking status ‘pending – no events yet’ means that the item hasn’t been scanned yet.
This could be because it:
hasn’t been posted yet, OR
it’s taking a little longer for Australia post for its first scan, OR
was part of a bulk mailing where items have been posted over the counter in bulk but not scanned yet.
Please try tracking your item again in 24-48 hours.
PickPals posts your lock picks all over Australia and the globe as fast as we can, providing superior customer service. Some of these events may be out of our hands but we won’t leave any stone unturned to ensure your package of quality lock picks and accessories arrive in a timely manner.
The progressive locks are great, we really like these as a base to start. The progressive locks give you less pins so you can start to feel your way around a lock and slowly move up to more pins.
The clear locks are great and are slightly better quality which is reflected in the price.
Some beginners use a combination of the progressive and clear to get them started. Either lock will keep you busy for a long time.
Well picked up, these sets are very similar. The difference in the 9 pce set is the thickness of the Picks. They are able to get into narrower keyways and have thicker metal handles which provide great feedback. The intro set is a PickPals exclusive set put together by us and has everything you need to get started at a great price. We offer the intro as a great entry point with the option to expand later. Both the nine pce set and our intro set are top sellers, made in the us by Southord.
