Extract a Broken Key with the HPC EZ-1 Saw Blade Key Extractor
Do you know how to extract a broken key using the HPC EZ-1 Saw Blade Key Extractor? Here we’ll show you how!
The main difference between the Saw tooth and the spiral key extractor is that the way you use each of them to extract a key is different. While you’d want to get the spiral extractor into one of the grooves of the key to get a good grip and be able to twist it out, you wouldn’t want that with a saw blade extractor.
Insert the saw blade key extractor on what we call the top or bottom shelf of the key. On the top of the keyway you can see a little L in the blank space. If you’re dealing with a double-sided key, you’re going to have a little L (or shelf) at the top and at the bottom. Because this is where the wafers or the pins are, you will give you more than enough room to slide the saw blade extractor in at the top or at the bottom depending on whether it’s a single or double-sided key.
Insert the saw blade key extractor carefully, making sure that you’re not forcing it. Rock it back and forth very gently while pushing very carefully because you really don’t want to push the key further in. Once it is half way through, apply pressure to the broken key at an angle to grip the key as best as you can. Start pulling out gently. The broken key is going to come out slowly.
It is simple as that. You now know how to extract a broken key from a lock using the HPC-1 Saw Blade Key Extractor. Get your own HERE.
