To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Just something to note before anyone buying is READ THE TITTLE. As i didn't do that, i clicked purchase too quickly because i saw the price. It says "precision pick and hook set" in simpler terms "mini pick set". Yeah well i really never read that and when i received them i saw them and looked how tiny these are. I didn't send them back because they are useful at work, it's nice to have smaller picks that the larger pick set i have. Some techs at my work mocked me for purchasing these because of how small they were. I compared these 4 to a set i saw on my Snap-on Reps truck and they were $75 but came in a flimsy plastic tray. I cannot justify paying that to just say Snap-on on them or having them stored in a plastic tray. The picks itself are durable, and last when in greasy or oily. The handles got good grip, i really like the 90 degree one. My personal favorite as i love removing electrical connectors with it. Holding the picks sometimes is wired just because of the size, bigger hands maybe would challenging but unsure as my hands are small. I do put quite a bit of pressure on these picks and have with stand what i put them up against.
Otherwise the price is well worth what you get. I maybe would like a storage tray even it added a few more dollars but anymore than $10 then that would be pushing it. They are solid durable picks and happy that i added them to my toolbox. Makes me laugh because i watch others spending money on Snap-on ones meanwhile i my wallet is laughing.
I read some reviews before I bought it and some people mentioned how small this set was. When I opened the package I had to giggle on how small these picks really are. That being said, I think it is a high quality set. The ends are tiny but sharp.
Pros: Lifetime warranty, Well constructed. Good knurling on the shaft.
I decided to get this so that I could stop using other things such as tips of knives and screwdrivers for applications better served with a nice pick. The price is right on these, I didn't do much shopping around but for under $10 it is hard to go wrong. I have used primarily the straight and 90 degree pick while the other two mainly site in my toolbox.
It would be nice to have a case for these so that the tips are protected and they could all be easily sorted but that would also add to the cost. Nonetheless would be nice for safety.
I found the tips to be quite durable. I have a had a few situations where I thought for sure I busted a tip off the pick but they are still as sharp as the day I got them.
Don't hesitate, add these to your toolbox they come in handy.
If you need a set of picks, this is about as cheap as you'll find some and unless you're using them as prybars or screwdrivers like some techs or auto entheusiasts do then you should be fine. As a Mechanic i eventially upgraded to some snap on picks but they cost like 8 9 times more and in the end of it it's just a pick so. Never had them break or anything, just wasnt a fan of the handles and i tend to use my picks as pullers and just abuse them overall.
Strong tips will not bend easily. Four different angle cover the most situations. They feel very nice, with a solid grip and pointy ends. Originally purchased to help clean the nozzles on a 3D printer, we have since found multiple other uses for them, including removing rubber ends off of a gasket that couldn't be removed with pliers. These are sturdy with nice ergonomic handles.
They are exactly what we needed to reach those hard to get reach areas, such as to help us thread Ethernet cables through the wall to reach other rooms. They are best for light duty, they aren't the strongest and may bend with too much force. As long as you use them for small purposes I feel that they will last quite a long time. As with any product, it has it's intended uses. If you try and push them past their limits, they won't last you as long.
Definitely recommend these. Great price for what they are capable of doing. Multiple uses. You can be creative with them.
This is a great pick set. The tips are very strong, and I love the grip handle. I have guys here at the shop that mocked me for buying these when they have sets from the Tool Truck for $60+. In my opinion, these are WAY better. The rubber grip is great even when they are covered in oil & grease which most don't have. I also really like knurled markings on the shaft so when I am working on electronics I can get pretty precise with these. If you are looking for a set of picks you will not be disappointed with these at all.
This is really for delicate items only. I've been using these daily for the past 2 months and today I bent one of them badly after trying to remove a clip. They have worked fine for things that required little force, but past that it is pretty useless. I suppose for the price I should not be mad but this is definitely not a good item for professional use.
I have had these for a few years now and the reviews don’t lie, these are more useful than they look. I used them to clear a blockage from a faucet, punch a hole for a rivet (the diameter fits 1/8” rivets perfectly), and all this in the last week. I admit that I mostly just use the straight one which I have bent a few times. A minor improvement would be to have a small imprint on the top end of it to tell them apart and maybe a case to keep them all together.
On occasion I found myself hunting for a small strong little probe or hook. Using paperclips, old wire, etc. I finally came time to get the correct tool so I would have it/them when that o-ring needs to be plucked from it's channel or so many other instances that I could use a little help. These tools shipped on time and were as described.
