It took FOREVER to find a place that had these mysterious picks in stock. I’d wanted a set of them for years, but either didn’t have the money or could never find a store that could get them in stock. My inability to find them turned into a multi-year quest until recently when I found them listed on the Brockhage website for $75, with 3 showing as in stock Flush with almost $100 in fan funding burning a hole in my pocket, I hit the “buy it now” button. About a week later, these babies showed up on my doorstep. Made from 0.020″ steel, they have aluminum slabbed sides glued on. I was not impressed because the handles were stuck together and to the paper packaging. I do NOT believe these are stainless steel, as advertised. They are fragile and I could not get a single opening using these tools when tested on over a dozen Kwiksets, Schlages, Master Locks, Bests, or any other brand. They simply do not work. Avoid these picks, they are a gimmick.





  1. What’s up, all the time i used to check website posts here in the early hours in the daylight, as i enjoy to
    gain knowledge of more and more.

  2. Have you ever thought about creating an ebook
    or guest authoring on other sites? I have a blog centered on the same
    subjects you discuss and would really like to have you share some stories/information. I
    know my subscribers would appreciate your work. If you are even remotely interested, feel free to shoot
    me an e-mail.

  3. This might be truly very. I like information technology plenty. Their estimate are pretty as well as box covered inside awesome bow. It isn’t the most amazing bracelet ever, but for the cost that it exceeds the expectations. Cannotdelay in order to award that towards our mom to Mother’s time!

  4. So that once I requested things I was thinking this had been going to be a sweet still inexpensively established bracelet awesome towards stocking stuffers. Although it’s established beautifully as well as was hefty therefore their never synthetic or even easily chipped steel. My personal mom loved it. It is a little bit on the mini side when you come with a bigger wrist i wouldnt advocate that it but it is so that value all discount amount!!

  5. なぜか上役から辞令で異動なんてよく聞く話です。平社員の立ち位置だと断れないから困りますよね。ショックでも異動代くらいは格安にしたいものです。だからやってみたい赤帽やクロネコのこじんまりした引越しです。一人でやるという決断もありますが、やっぱり悩みます。業者に任せて気楽に引っ越しするといいと考えます。

  6. I believe that is one of the so much important info for me.
    And i’m happy reading your article. However want to commentary on some
    common issues, The web site taste is ideal, the articles is in reality great :
    D. Good task, cheers

  7. I got this website from my pal who informed me about this web site and now this time I
    am visiting this web site and reading very informative content here.

  8. Good blog! I really love how it is simple on my eyes and the data are well written. I’m wondering how I could be notified when a new post has been made. I’ve subscribed to your RSS feed which must do the trick! Have a nice day!

  9. Lovely blog! I am loving it!! Will come back again. I am bookmarking your feeds also.

  10. I bought this set a while ago….nothing but regret towards it. I’d suggest one spends their money on more effective equipment.

  11. To err is human, but it takes a computer to really nause things up. Seems like it’s true in this case.

  12. The comments for your last several videos on YouTube are disabled with no comments showing. At this point, YT is showing the videos were posted 20 hours ago. Does this mean that one has to come to your web site to post a comment? Also, I subscribed to your channel a few days ago, but it is not sending notifications when you post new videos. I really like your videos and will be signing up with Patreon in the next couple of days.

    1. After 24 hrs, the comments on YT get disabled for the picking (pun intended, lol) of the ‘winner’ 😉

  13. I read once, years ago, that HPC had kind of stolen the designs from someone, but for some reason (possibly to avoid Intellectual Property Rights claims?) had enlarged the original design by 30%, and that is why they don’t work worth a damn. No idea if it’s true or not, but I’d love to get my hands on these so I could get them scanned, and then try making my own, reducing them by 30%, just to see what happened. And then if they worked, make them out of better material, and report back.

    1. These are used like tryout keys. Also, for best results the peaks and valleys need to line up with chamber spacing to work properly. Otherwise its just a game of chance

    2. About 17 years ago when I was starting up, I purchased picks from a load of companies to evaluate sizes, shapes etc. I figured that this would give me a good starting point to configure my picks.

      What really gave me a bad case of the chuckles was each progressive pick was exactly the size of the next one, plus the amount of space you needed to create an outline with a sharp pencil. (Notice when you trace you can’t help but leave a slight white margin).
