LAB Smart Wedge Universal Kit .003

This is the LAB Smart Wedge Universal Pinning Kit. As you can see, it comes in a really nice heavy duty metal case.


This is part of the wedge series of pinning kits so it does have the nice convenient drawer right here on the side that you can put extra parts and pieces in


And the reason they call it Smart is for two reasons: one is it's 40% smaller than your standard universal pinning kit and; two, they're only going to give you the sizes that you need to pin the locks on the chart.

You'll be able to see on this chart here, it's going to list all the popular locks that you're going to encounter. The Kwikset, the Schlage, the Weiser, the Sargent, the Arrows, Yale, Corbin, Russwin and Corbin Russwin.


As you can see, it's going to give you the bottom pin number, the master pin number and then the top pins.

It does have 92 different sizes of pins here, and you can see they're all color-coded and it does even include a couple spool pins. It does include the Schlage T-series pin, and spring for the Schlage F-series locks and it does have a nice convenient little tool compartment right here as well.


Although this kit is small, it has maximum storage for the size it is here. I also want to point out these bottom pin sizes, these pockets are really deep. I know, it's kind of hard to see it but I would say these are inch and a half, maybe two inches deep, so you could really put a lot of pins in here if you wanted to.

If you're looking for a kit that's compact, that doesn't have waste, it doesn't have pins in here that you're not going to need; if you were to take your brand specific kit for Kwikset, Schlage, Weiser and Yale and you were just to combine it into one and use universal pins, that's what this kit is right here.
