Letterbox Tool SideWinder Logo Outside-In Lock Tools
SideWinder ~ £75.00 Every once in a while, we receive accounts from Locksmiths who use our tools, telling us of their various experiences with them. Though all these accounts are interesting, some deserve special attention. Here is one we received recently. Many thanks for allowing us to use it. "A young mother called me in distress one morning after locking herself out leaving her two babies unattended in the kitchen. I raced to the address to find an auto deadlocking composite door with a key left on the inside. Luckily I was equipped with the Outside-in Sidewinder and Rattler combination allowing me to work around the letterbox guard and turn the key inside. This tool is potentially a life saving piece of equipment and something no emergency locksmith should be without." ~ Rick Corfield, Wolverhampton Locksmiths The ‘SideWinder’ is the ultimate Locksmiths tool that has revolutionised the way in which we use the Letterbox Tool. Using it’s Registered Design ‘DirectDrive’ mechanism, it has the ability to turn ‘Nightlatch knobs/levers*’, ‘Thumbturns’, and Keys left on the inside of locks, swiftly and efficiently. It is highly versatile, with the ability to deal with the majority of letterbox-related situations, including those encountered by Warrant Locksmiths. The ‘SideWinder’ which is compatible with our ‘Extendable’, ‘Extreme Letterbox Tool Kits’ and the standard LBT, using one of our ‘SureLock’ metal connectors, features space directly above the tool to mount a camera/torch bracket if required. At around 26mm in thickness, the self-adjusting gripper assembly has been designed to slide through even the smallest letterbox. It features an amazing amount of torque, which Locksmiths at the ‘SideWinders’ official launch early in 2011, commented specifically on. It does not use cord, string or batteries to ‘drive’ it. The ‘SideWinder’ comes with a 12 Month Warranty, though the ‘gripper rubbers’, must be considered a consumable, (carefully balanced between optimum performance and longevity), and are therefore not covered under the Warranty, though the ‘SideWinder’ comes complete with spares, and additional gripper rubbers may be purchased online. A detailed instruction sheet is included, and the simple technique for use, may be easily mastered within approximately 10 minutes, with ‘openings’ of around one or two minutes commonplace once practised. Simply position it, and operate it. Job done, and another Customer highly impressed! Always remember to use safety glasses when using this tool! There is always the potential for danger when using any tools. We cannot be held liable for accidents, or damage. Some minor surface imperfections may be apparent. This is the result of the supply of the raw materials and manufacturing process, and will not affect the performance of the tool in any way. The SideWinder grippers are turned by rotating the handle, a quick flick of the wrist will turn keys or latches in seconds.

Thanks go to Stu, of ‘Windsor Locks’ who is a Warrant Locksmith. He sent us the photo to the left, which shows what he encountered during a Warrant, and gained entry to using only the ‘SideWinder’, demonstrating that this tool will make short work of even the most challenging of situations!
