Locksmith Tools | The Tool You Didn't Think You Needed!

Raise your hand if you've ever borrowed tweezers from a location where you knew you had no business being! That is correct; you are a busy person. Things did not go as planned, and you needed to reassemble the cylinder, so you resorted to reaching into your makeup bag and grabbing a pair of tweezers to finish the job. Let us never do that again, all right? Now, any lock boss will be well-prepared if they arrive on the job with the proper tools, where pinning tweezers come into play. At first, it's as if you're thinking, "Hey, tweezers are tweezers; I don't need them or, if I do, I can use any pair," and while that may be true, I have a strange feeling you've borrowed tweezers before from a location you knew you shouldn't.

Take a look at the LockVoy Pinning Tweezers, which feature a unique cutout for holding pins when working on or rebuilding locks.

The first reason is that when rebuilding a cylinder, having a pair of pinning tweezers to grab the springs in the top pins and insert them makes quick work of it because you get such a good grip and can apply pressure to the top pins as you insert them.

While the second reason may seem trivial, it can be difficult to pick up bottom pins when pinning up a lock if you have large fingers. Using a set of pinning tweezers, which you can easily access here, grab one, and insert it into the plug, simplifies the process of rekeying.
