My vises are made by Panavise, a U.S. Company.  The one with the wide jaws is the model 350.  The smaller one is the model 301. Both have the 312 Base mount – www.panavise.com



  1. The lock was modified by whom ever. Kwikset does not use anti drill pins in their locks. Not eer their Smart Key Locks has anti drill pins. As you can tell by how crappy the install is. Again most likely a scammer was called instead of a real locksmith.

  2. Kwikset has made a change recently, as the last two locks I have bought within the past 2 months each contained two spool driver pins. Before, all of the drivers were standard.

  3. I have a challange for you. Pick some sort of alarmed brake disc lock (for motorbikes) attached to some sort of brake disc or similar (from a bike scrapyard maybe), and try to pick it without the alarm going off. I can't afford to send you mine (as I'm using it and it's hugely expensive), but I bet someone has an old used one left over, or maybe you can find a cheap one somewhere (although the more expensive ones like ABUS or Oxford would probably offer more resistance).
    Looking forward to seeing that. ;)

  4. Hi Bill, I have watched a fair few of your videos .. you make picking locks easy ! Would these type of locks open with a pick gun or snake type rake ? Rob

  5. Not a bad attempt at adding some trickyness to the locks. But like you mentioned spooling the key pins like that actually doesn't do anything at all. Perhaps if the cylinders in the plug were threaded it would make a difference. 

  6. Ha ha ha, you did not even give me time to post my video before you picked the locks. Look for "How To Add High Security Features To Your Locks" then it will all make sense. Thanks!
