(880) Review: Adams-Rite Bypass Tools

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. Goodness, that makes the Quickset on my front door look like crapola. I picked my own front door (defiant-not so) in 45 seconds.

  2. (talking about the steel plate blocking thing) how about cutting your shim like this…

    But like a bigger cut i think u get the idea

  3. GLAD TO SEE THIS ONE DEMONSTRATED! THANKS BILL! I want to see one of those UK Insurance approved lever locks with the false gates picked!!! I got a Russian version with 8 levers, all with false gates! OMG! What a huge challenge, and pain in the neck, only lower. You can kind of sort your way through each lever and after between 2000 and 4096 or so combinations of the 8 levers, to find the correct bolt passage position combination of the various gates, false and proper, it will open,…… eventually. I am learning that the false gates will sometimes jam up, or drag against the bolt and resist movement. Take notes, and remember that lever and the position. Adams Rites were always pretty easy to defeat. Some of the doors that fit tight may need a wedge or a pillow pump to force open a crack for the shim.

  4. That definitely looks like a hole new skill. I think I’m going to need some practice with that style.

  5. This video has given me a few ideas on how to better protect this type of lock from picking. I’m surprised the manufacture designed it with such flaws.

  6. I have to wonder how many others this technique might work with. Badass instructional, Bill.
