Padlock Rekey with Tweezers

Not only is it good when you have a tool that helps you get the job done, but it's even better when the same tool helps you stay out of trouble with your significant other. Let me show you what I'm talking about.

The product I'm talking about is Padlock Pinning Tweezers. Tweezers are one of those weird things that you can find anywhere and a lot of times, we just don't think we need them or sometimes we don't need them until we do need them.


Taking tweezers and not putting/returning them back. That’s where the problem starts!


When it comes to pinning padlocks, the pins are small. If you have even normal size fingers, you can run into a little bit of trouble trying to put them in the tiny padlock cylinder. So, we went ahead and created pinning tweezers with a perfect cutout for padlock pins.


The cool part is this idea didn't come from us. It came from you, the LockBoss community. During one of our live videos, a lot of people commented that they would like to see padlock tweezers because the normal tweezers don't do the job. They don't hold the pin right, so we have them now.


Get the Lock Voy, assembled in the USA padlocks, an M1 keyway, this is an M10 cylinder, and of course, our American Master pinning kit.


If you grab a couple of pins and put them in your hand, you can see how tiny they are. Imagine how hard are they to be grabbed. It can be annoying, but by using the tweezers that have the perfect notch cut out to grab them, it allows you to pick them up at ease.

You need to flip it around without dropping the pin, and easily install the pin with a good grip. 


If you find yourself pinning up a bunch of padlocks and the tiny padlock pins are always causing you trouble or having a hard time putting them into the plug, these pinning tweezers might just be what you're looking for.
