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. It is a cool idea as a challenge lock in that it sets a trap that means you don’t get an open BUT surely having a split core like that introduces a very easy bypass opportunity if it were used in a security deployment? There needs to be some way to shield the actuator part but I cannot see how that might be achieved

  2. Now that you know the trick, can’t you just pick the pins and then use the pick to engage the actuator as you rotate with the tension wrench?

  3. Good lord, lad. You're right about the lock manufacturers. That ought to be a standard feature instead of a custom build… Then again, it would not make picking locks fun anymore. Oh well.

  4. Great idea. It may not add a whole lot more complexity to breaking the lock, but it's certainly another twist to picking the lock! (pun not intended)

  5. Great Idea. I hope he has patented the idea. If a lock manufacturer sees this, a new generation of locks could emerge. Or is there something already in the trade?
