All the Trade Shows have been cancelled this year, in order that Locksmiths don’t miss out on the usual great offers, we have reduced the price on most of our range of tools for the duration of COVID 19 restrictions.
Replace them the easy way
How to replace the gripper rubbers on the SideWinder and SideWinder Evolution.
Remove as much old rubber as possible Scrape as far as you can reach without damaging the outer Use a flat screwdriver to reach between the gripper and outer Peel off old rubber and glue Peel off backing from rubber When gripper is depressed there should be a small gap Position the new rubber with an overlap, to tuck under the outer Gently push the rubber under the outer wall whilst depressing the gripper finger to create a gap Tuck the edge of the rubber under the wall of the outer tube Gripper finger cleaned and ready for new rubber The edge of the outer tube will now pin the rubber in place Press rubber firmly into place and repeat on the other gripper finger. Fold the rest of the rubber onto the inside
