Does the job – Genuine KLOM 7-Pin Tubular Locksmith Lock Quick Open Tool Reviews

posted by AccessLock on 04/10/2013 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Works quickly and once you have picked the lock you can tighten it up to set the prongs and use it as a key (perfect for keyed alike scenarios). You can also copy a key from it apparently and it comes with a depth gauge.
Cons:
The reset function: You press the button down and pull the shaft back to reset the prongs by pushing them up against the head of the handle but it falls short by a couple of millimeters so it doesn't work and you have to push each one up by hand.
Other:
I had to pull it apart and install a washer around the shaft to take up the couple millimeter gap so that it could be reset without using my fingers on each prong.
Bottomline:
It works but they didn't machine the handle or shaft quite rite.
