NEW CAMARO TOOL
Lockmasters and Tech-Train Productions have introduced the TT1037 car-opening tool, designed specifically for the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro. The new Camaro is equipped with high-security locks, protected linkage, indexing glass and an inside door release handle that is mounted too low for probably every make of under-window tools to reach.
The new Tech-Train TT1037 tool, designed by Steve Young, unlocks the passenger’s side door locking mechanism. To ensure unlocking success, the tool has an index mark on the shaft for exact placement within the door cavity. The tool shape avoids the guards in the door cavity without having to use an inspection light or other aids. Once the TT1037 tool is in position, unlocking requires only having to pull up on the tool in order to raise the vertical linkage rod.
The TT1037 tool can be ordered directly from Lockmasters, Inc. at (800) 654-0637 or visit web site www.lockmasters.com .
CHECK THE LOCK HARDWARE BOX
I was invited by a commercial locksmith company to observe an installation. We met at the jobsite and proceeded to install the lock hardware. When a door lock was being installed, the locksmith noticed that a piece of the trim was not in the box. Unfortunately, this resulted in sendng an employee back to the shop to take a replacement piece from a lock in stock. They were fortunate that the missing part could easily be replaced. This ended up as non-billable time, which no one wants in this economy.
It is a good idea to take a few minutes before you leave to install hardware to make sure all the pieces are in the box(es).
