KWIKSET PULLER BY A-1 LOCKSMITH TOOLS - Every locksmith shop needs one
Everyone in the locksmith industry knows how easy Kwikset locks are to pick -- at least the conventional type of Kwikset. But now and again they, well, just won't. Any lock is prone to this. Tumblers get all gooed up, or some youngster has filled the keyway with super glue. Maybe you're having a bad day and you just can't pick.
This is where the A1 QP-1 puller comes in real handy. It's designed especially for the Kwikset keyed knobset. It will easily pull the cylinder right out of the knob, without damage. Saves a lot of frustration, and frayed nerves.
CAUTION -- while QP tools are built tough, they cannot be expected to be unbreakable. Using any force tool includes the inherent risk of tool breakage, which normally occurs after hard or repeated use. The blades are expected to break fairly often and this is why extra blades are available. However, the threaded bolt portion of the tool bears a good deal of the force and may break as well. Please be aware that there is no warranty, expressed or implied, included with your purchase of a QP puller. A-1 does offer a Repair Kit for these pullers but we've found they are hard to get. We can special order a kit for you should you request it. Your cost will be in the range of $35 - $40, plus shipping.
