Sparrows Lock Picks: EOD Light Kit

As mentioned earlier the EOD Kit is built with speed in mind, this is why the guys at Sparrows Lock Picks designed the kit with several types of rakes.

When ​you need to attack and gain access to a lock quickly like the EOD so often does, the best way to do this is by raking the lock.

I've purchased lock pick sets off of Amazon before in the past and while they may look like the real deal if you do some research you'll find that these are just junk. Most of the items in the kits you don't even need and the steel that they're made from is suspect at best.

When I received my EOD Light Kit from Sparrows Lock Picks the difference in quality was night and day. No sharp edges on the EOD Kit while the Amazon kit was poorly finished.

While using the Amazon kit I noticed that if I applied to much force (which wasn't a lot) the pick or rake would actually bend​.

With the Sparrows kit however I don't even get the feeling that I'll bend the tools, I'm sure I could if I tried but the point is that upon my first encounter with the EOD Kit I knew I was getting my money's worth.

What You Get With the EOD Light Kit

Sparrows uses stainless steel in all the tools included inside of the EOD Kit​ which is great as it adds a lot of corrosion resistance to them.

As for the tools in the EOD Light Kit you'll get a variety of rakes including:

  • Sparrows slightly modified snake rake (to aid in tackling a wider variety of locks)
  • Worm rake (made a bit thicker than normal)
  • Triple peak rake
  • Double peak rake
  • Half Diamond (sort of a hybrid cross between a rake and pick)
  • Standard hook pick
  • Mini Shank
  • 3 widths of twist flex tension wrenches
  • 3 widths of Z wrenches
  • and you choice in color for the carrying pouch

So as you can see you get a pretty good variety of rakes in this kit, various tension wrenches, and a pick just in case.

Sparrows Lock Picks makes some great products I recommend you purchase either this kit or something like it as an addition to your SERE (Survival, Escape, Resistance, Evasion) Kit, Bug Out Bag or your Urban Survival Kit.
