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 looks like you could make it more harder to pick by swapping the drivers for pins 2+6 and 4+5. That would put the tree pins over the shorter bottom pins. At least that’s what i would do if it was in my door.

  2. Nice job there Bill 😀👍 Was starting to think this would never be gutted, what with the C-Clip, Shims getting caught up etc. Still, fantastic lock by all accounts; especially as most pickers, let alone criminals, have 13 thousandths of an inch picks to tackle the warding on this Habo and, get to those back pins. Like I say mate, great job sir. 😀👍

  3. Knipex got pliers that should work on that kind of clip, go to their homepage and search for "45 10 170" without the ", should show you the tool in question.

  4. Nice to see a high quality lock like this, but what were they thinking–putting the biting on the key? SHEESH….! Presumably everybody makes copies and uses those.
