A New Air Wedge For Next Generation Vehicle Opening

It isn’t very often a new product comes onto the locksmith tool market for vehicle opening with truly unique ideas. Slim Jims, Long Rods, and others have largely dominated the vehicle opening tool market and accomplished their purposes. Wedges, or air wedges, of various kinds have become a standard of sorts for several years. A challenge facing many technicians today is professionally and effectively wedging doors that have become tighter and wider.

Problems With Opening Modern Vehicles

Modern vehicle manufacturers want to keep the cabin quiet, but to do so means having very tight door frames. These frames are not only wider than ever before, but also difficult to wedge. Inserting a locksmith tool of any kind can be difficult. Plastic wedges can be too large to begin inserting, and can even damage the paint surface of a vehicle. Even when a deflated air wedge is inserted, it can pose problems with slipping out of the door or worse, “springing” the door (springing is a term used when a door is forced open on a vehicle and becomes out of shape, no longer sealing properly to the vehicle body and is a costly fix).
