Bauer Lock-in Truck Bed Cover
These double-sided convenience key locks have five wafers and what appear to be three depths of cut. We have collected a few of the Bauer ML key codes. The known depths of cut are 1- .276”, 2- .244” and 3- .213”. The depth increment is .0315” or .8mm. An example ML key code is ML033, having the depths of cut of 13122.
There does not appear to be an aftermarket key blank yet. Original key blanks from Bauer at 866-682-2837. This same key blank is used for the Bauer SL, ML, CH, J and DM code series. The Ilco X226/HYD12 and Jet HYD12NP can be used as a substitute key blank.
Jet Hardware Key Blanks Update
The Jet LXP90H-PH key blank has the side milling that is required on some of the Kia and Hyundai secondary locks. This side milling is not in the LXP90 key blanks. The Jet LXP90H-PH key blank do not affect the operation of Lexus and Mazda vehicles equipped with the high security locks.
In the chart on page 50 in my December column, the Weiser information for the Smart Key should have been Jet WR7-NP and Ilco N1176. My apologies for any problems that may have resulted.
Although this is not exactly a tool, a friend showed me this bathroom sink.

Car-Opening Techniques: 2006-on Toyota RAV4
This month we will offer recommended car-opening techniques for the 2006-on Toyota RAV4. The third generation four-door RAV4 is equipped with bicycle-style cables inside of the doors. Some models are equipped with the anti-theft door relocking system. On these models, when unlocking the door lock mechanism, the alarm indicator will flash.
Warning: The multi-layer weather stripping is very tight. Failure to remove wedges prior to bringing the under-the-window tools into the passenger compartment can result in the window glass breaking.
Note: The inside front door handles override the relock mechanism (if present) by holding the inside handle in the open position.
The following opening methods can be used to unlock the 2006-on Toyota RAV4:
Use the High Tech Tools 78SG Tool and the One Hand Jack Tool to unlock the front passenger’s door locking mechanism. Use the One Hand Jack Tool to separate the doorframe from the vehicle. Insert an inflatable wedge in the top rear corner and inflate. Remove the One Hand Jack Tool. Insert the #78SG car-opening tool into the passenger compartment with the tip pointing downward. Slide the tool until the tip is positioned behind the door handle. Pull back on the tool to move the handle into the unlocked position to unlock the locking mechanism. Open the door using the outside door handle.
Use the Pro-Lok AO-36 MCOT- Long Tool, AO33 MCOT-Separator Tool and an inflatable wedge to unlock the rear passenger’s door locking mechanism. Begin by inserting the inflatable wedge eight inches from the front edge of the rear passenger door window. Inflate the wedge according to manufacturer’s instructions. Insert the AO33 one inch from the front edge of the window with the tip facing rearward. Insert the AO-36 into the door cavity at five inches from the front edge of the window glass with the tip facing forward. Lower both tools 16 inches. Rotate both tools having the tips on the passenger compartment side of the window glass. Deflate the wedge. Raise the AO33 tool, having the tip in the passenger compartment. Raise the AO36 tool through the opening created by the AO33 tool. Lift the AO36 tool until the tip is in the passenger compartment. Position the tip of the tool against the manual lock-unlock button. Push the button rearward to unlock the door locking mechanism.
