MVP PRO Auto Key Programmer Review | Mr. Locksmith Automotive

Automotive Locksmith MVP PRO Auto Key Programmer Review | Mr. Locksmith Automotive

For further information go to www.mrlocksmith.com

My daily Auto Key Programmer is the HotWire and the MVP Pro. I am on the unlimited token plan for both programmers. For the past 5+ years, I have been purchasing and testing “Offshore Auto Key Programmers.”

I have several Off Shore MVP clones. The price was so low, we keep on testing to see if any Off Shore Key Programmer could replace our existing programmers.

The MVP Clones are poorly made and no consistency or reliability with the software.

One Off Shore clone will program Ford and Chrysler but not Honda. Another identical clone will do Honda but not some Fords.
Another clone may work on a Nissan, but no one unit will do everything. It’s just been a zero.

So we kept on buying these, kept on testing them. Our dongles would break. The units would break. They’d fall apart. The software was inconsistent.

However, we found one clone that consistently worked well with Honda reflashes, specifically the 1998-2002 Honda Preludes.

In the early day we were just trying to save tokens, and really did we save any money? No, the clones were not good. There’s no consistency.

But again, if you don’t try, you don’t know. And there are some good units out there that the Chinese are coming out with now that are making some of the good stuff look bad.

Some of the new offshore auto key programmers they are using their own software, their own designs, and they are not clones or scammer units. Some of the Off Shore Key Programmers actually seem to be getting there.

Well, they’re coming out with nice updates on them, so they are becoming consistent.

The thing is with everything, you could have an Offshore made, really good programmer, and now they have counterfeit units of that that are total garbage.

So why are some of these Auto Key Programmers $300 and the other unit’s $50? The $50 unit is a total clone and it’s a total piece of garbage. How do you know? You don’t. That’s the big problem.

One way to find out is if you read the automotive forums.

Talk to other Locksmiths and view our videos.

The various plugins quality was all over the map. Some very good forums on Facebook, KeyPro website, ClearStar, etc.

So far, again, we’ve talked about this before, our go-to units are the MVP Pro and Hotwire.

My Favourite Veto Pro Pac for Tools | Mr. Locksmith Blog

My Favourite Veto Pro Pac for Tools | Mr. Locksmith Blog

For further information go to http://mrlocksmith.com/

 

I now have four (4) Veto Pro Pac Tool bags for my locksmith tools.

Hi, I’m Terry. As a locksmith, I’m always trying to figure out how to carry my tools, how to have them convenient, what to do. I’ve tried everything over the years. As you get older, you also, now we’re looking at cart options; how am I gonna drag my tools around; what am I going to do? One thing that’s outlasted everything I’ve ever bought, is the Veto Pro Pac. They have an entire line, and I love they have the little ones; they have the larger kits. I’ve been using this for years.

 

 

I have other kits I use, and I tried Pelican cases, Pelican tool cases, which I really like, but these Vetos; I’ve also tried the stuff you buy at the various hardware stores; they’re selling packs and totes and all sorts of stuff. What lasts the best, the Veto Po Pac, Pro Pac.

They last forever. I would still order extra one of these shoulder straps, just ’cause it’s built so well; it lasts forever. It never wears out, never breaks. These things last forever. This is a great, this one here, this is probably like three years old, and look at it; it is like brand new.

The only disadvantage is, they’re empty, they’re quite heavy, and this is exposed to the weather when I’m sort of running in and out of job sites. It’s heavy, heavy duty; it’s expensive, but they last forever. My other bags I’ve bought, you know, between 50 and 70 dollars. They last me a year, if that, and they get pretty worn out, pretty quick.

These things last forever, and this is my enclosed one. This is just sort of one in the back of my, not my service truck, I just threw some tools in it. It just holds everything, everything in one spot. You can throw all your stuff in, you can throw your cordless drill, your picks, everything. I’ve been lookin’ at their backpack right now, for our Key Store, to have our guys run out and just do some quick little locked out of filing cabinets, so I’m looking at the Veto Pro backpack.

I will check out Veto Pro Pack website and see if they have something on wheels because they make such a fantastic system. What I really need is something on wheels. I put these right now on a little cart I have for out of the service truck, onto, up the elevator, because we’re downtown so lots of elevators and stairs, and I don’t wanna go back to the truck to get something

I forgot, so I throw these on a cart. I love this for my installation kit. This is just something just quick, easy, in the back of my personal vehicle, so if I get a lockout and I’m on the road, or I have to help somebody, I have my own personal tools with me. Again, great stuff, expensive, but they last forever, and fantastic, really, really good; I highly recommend it.

Abloy Deadbolts and Master Keying | Mr. Locksmith Blog

Abloy Deadbolts and Master Kekeying | Mr. Locksmith Blog

For further information go to www.mrlocksmith.com

Today we are going to talk about my favorite deadbolt which is the Abloy Deadbolt as well as master keying. I like this deadbolt so much, it is installed on my house. I am paranoid, I admit it, I always have been, I always want the best I can have on my house and my business and my camper. So I have the Abloy Deadbolt, 100% deadbolt on my house, and I use all the padlocks on everything else I have. So that Mike from Mr. Locksmith Burnaby is probably our top locksmith on Abloy, he does amazing things with this. It’s absolutely fantastic,  I will let Mike discuss the Abloy Protec 2 Deadbolt.

 

Okay, this is the 100% Abloy and it has a Pick Resistant UL 437 rating.

Furthermore,  there is no known Covert methods of entry on this lock. A lot of people are trying to figure out how to do this, there are no known methods, so when people say it can be hacked, or picked or anything if you’ve seen all my videos, I hack, and pick and get into everything. This has no known Covert entry methods, that’s why I love it so much.

The front of the deadbolt is hardened too. The Abloy Protect 2 deadbolt is a pick, bump and drill-resistant lock. Nothing is 100% drill-proof, but this is deadbolt is extremely difficult to hard one to drill. The Abloy deadbolt is fire rated to 20 minutes.

You are not going through this lock, and it’s basically, it’s a nightmare too, for, and if you look at our video on how to circumvent with drills and other methods of entry.

Cordless Grinding to defeat the Abloy Deadbolt, this is not a fun job, but you’ll see that in the other videos. But again, this is my favorite lock. Mike installs tons of these. The next favorite would be, now we have a lot of customers who have existing, these are the B660 heavy-duty Schlage deadbolts, and we can retrofit almost anything to an Abloy cylinder.

We just modify the Schlage Deadbolt B660 lock, this is my second most favorite deadbolt because of the versatility, but we put a lot of Abloy on retrofitting, upgrading existing systems.

One example here us we gave taken the Abloy cylinder and keys, and then replace it into the Schlage B660 deadbolt. As you can see the handle again, it’s a smaller version, and you can hear a difference in the, you know, just the sound that’s making the bolt coming in and out. You can just hear the difference.

“The sound of power.”

The two locks in the video have been keyed it up to a master key system, which means so this key will operate this one lock in the lower end, and then this one here will operate both of them, okay?

Basically, master keying is, you can have one key fit two or 2,000 doors, so the one key would fit everything, as well as you still have the individual keys that fit each office or each apartment, so that’s master keying, but there are some interesting options you can do with an Abloy.

The master key system, the one key that operates both will be something for your, say, a house with a rental unit. So the rental unit can try their key, and not be able to unlock your upstairs unit for example, but you can have the control of the whole house at any given time for an emergency.

So you can have, what I do with a lot of times, is a lot of people have rental units to help pay the mortgage, so you have a master key will fit the upper unit as well as the lower rental unit, and so the, we’ll call it the “A” key for upstairs, the “B” key for downstairs. The “B” key won’t fit upstairs, the “A” key won’t fit downstairs, however, you have your master key will fit the “A” and the “B” so you can give your kids will have the “A” key, they cannot go into the rental unit, and you can have the master key that you have and you can go upstairs or downstairs at your discretion.

On this stand we have three more deadbolts, Schlage deadbolt, the B660 version which is the one I just showed you earlier, but on the lower two, same idea, it’s master keyed, but with the S123 series keys that went with it, but for this one here, again, we retrofitted the deadbolt with an Abloy cylinder, but on this one you have a key that locks and unlocks, ideal for a business owner to have. But say you have a night-shift, that once they lock up, they cannot come back in. So you have a key that will allow you to only lock it at night, and once it’s locked, will not allow you to unlock it again. So it could be for like, the last person on shift, or it could be for the cleaner that leaves at the end of the day, and you have a special key also that you could have, for opening only, for say the morning shift guy that can have this, all right? So those are the flexibility of an Abloy system, you can have like what, millions of combinations of keys.

On my lock and master key  system, I have a master key opens up the house, the camper, and all the little locks on the camper, and opens up the shop, and my various padlocks, and I also have the home key which will only work the house locks, and then I have the store key that only opens up the store. Interesting option though, and this is in the early days of Abloy, you had to, in the old days you had to have a key that locked, and a key that unlocked, they would not do both, nowadays we have one key can lock and unlock, but it’s a nice option to add, where again, where the morning staff, they unlock and the evening staff can lock. And so the evening staff can’t come in the morning, or other times, and unlock the store.

An interesting function and we have quite a few customers like that, so they have, they unlock in the morning and the staff can lock up, and they don’t have to worry about the staff coming in at other times of the day or night. Wonder if I could do that with my kids? So again, it’s very, very versatile, it’s probably the most versatile system. The advantage of an Abloy master key system is when you master key any of the traditional locks, it actually decreases security. It makes it easier to pick open the lock or have what we call ghost keys, other keys that will open the lock by accident. With an Abloy system, I think it’s in the billions of combination, millions for sure is when you, the more you master key, we can do a great-great-great Grandmaster,

Grandmaster, Master key, “A” keys, “B” keys, everything else, it doesn’t decrease the security of the lock. So traditionally, master keying one of these locks will not make it easier to open.

The padlocks, the prices are not bad for what you have, pick-resistant, a shim will not open them, drill-resistant and hardened steel, they’re a fantastic lock.

Actually, I am going to get an Abloy Padlock engraved and I’m going put this on the Love Locks Bridge. This will be my “Love Lock.”  Vancouver now has a Love Lock Statues, but what I really want is when I go to Paris, will go to the proper bridge, don’t forget there are two love lock bridges in France. Look at my other video, you’ll understand. But I’m gonna put this on, throw the key away, and the lock will be there forever, ’cause no one can pick it off. I am so tempted looking at that, have you seen it yet, the love lock?

I went down and looked at all the love locks, and I’m just looking at it going, “Geez, I could pick like, 99% of these,”- It’s on my front door.

Abloy is the only lock for the deadbolt that has created a locking thumb-turn. Leave it in unlock position, of course, when you go for vacation, for example. It’s ideal for doors that are close to like, a patio door, or something close to a window.

The Locking thumb-turn function is a good option and again I have that on my door.

It stops somebody from breaking a window, reaching in and unlocking your door, say, if you’re not home or on vacation. So what it does is actually, you put it on a neutral position in an unlocked position, you key it off so that the thumb-turn is locked off, so it won’t turn, you step outside and you lock the door, and you leave, and then so your door is secure now without worrying about somebody unlocking the door from inside, and even if they do break in to your house, they’re not gonna be able to unlock that door to carry out your television set, or whatever they take these days, or your sofa, or your couch or something, right? Because they can’t swing the door open.

– Traditionally I would have a single-cylinder deadbolt, and I’d have a double-cylinder deadbolt above it, so when I went away I’d lock the double lock, and the problem is with a double cylinder deadbolt is you have to have a key to get out. With this locking thumb-turn, which I’ve put on my place, so when I go away I engage the function, I can lock the door, if they break in through a window, or coming through the patio door, or somewhere, they may be able to break in, but they can’t go out my front door, or any of my doors, and cart my stuff off. So I just don’t want my stuff going missing. So the locking thumb-turn is almost like a double, but I don’t have to worry about the fire safety issue because I’m only doing it when I leave the house, and I lock it, and I know it’s like a double lock. They can smash the windows, they can’t reach through and open, it’s a fantastic option, I really like it. Any disadvantages to this lock?

Key control: Nobody can cut this key, except for, we have, this is a Mr. Locksmith keyway, you can’t go anywhere and get this key cut. Even another Abloy dealer will not do it, they can’t do it, they don’t have the blank, and that’s one of the big problems is, with a lot of locks for businesses and everything else is key control. You have total, total key control on this, it’s patented ’til like, 2026 or something.

The Abloy Protect 2 locks have key control, pick-resistance, no one’s gonna get through this door unless they chop their way through it, and no one’s going to have a key to get in, you can’t get this cut anywhere, at all.

The key machine that cuts this key is, every key is cut individually, you’re not duplicating. You can’t take this key and say, “Hey, “I wanna duplicate it, put it side-by-side “on a duplicating machine,” you just cannot do that, and there is a floating, like, this is a Protec 2 keyway which means it has a ball-bearing within the key itself, and that is part of the locking system. Without that ball-bearing floating in there, it will not even turn the cylinder on the outside portion of it. So that in itself is a locking mechanism. So I had keys that accidentally had the ball-bearing pop out for some reason. I don’t know what they were doing to it, but it won’t even let them in anymore. The other thing is, yeah, these are very strong keys.

Medieval Locksmith Tools.

16th Century Danner’s Breaking Screw LocksmithTool

 

 

Leonhard Danner of Nuremberg was a Sixteenth-Century Nuremberger engineer/inventor. Nuremberger (Nürnberg) was the leading metalworking centre of Europe.

Danner was renowned for inventing and manufacturing instruments which could demolish strong Medieval Moorish castle walls, gadgets for breaking through locks and metal bars as well as creating lifting machinery for heavy artillery. At the same time, he was also producing delicate artistic works.

The Danner screw device or “Dannscher Brechschrauber” which could destroy locks came from his workshop around 1560 and the operation of the vicelike tool was as simple as it was effective. The machine’s lawless efficiency and capacity to enable criminal behaviour was quickly recognized by the Nuremberg City Council and they issued a decree banning it from January 16, 1561. Anyone requesting such an apparatus should be reported to the reigning mayor and instructions for manufacturing them were restricted. This did not prevent more of these ‘Dannscher Brechschrauber’ being manufactured.

Medieval Locksmith Tools: 

“Die Brechschraube bestand aus zwei Haken, die unter die Schlossdecke geklemmt werden konnten, und einer Gewindestange, die es wirklich kinderleicht machte, das Schloss von der Tür zu reißen.”

“Danner’s breaking screw consisted of two hooks, which could be stuck undethe lock cover, and a thread bar, which made it really simple, to break the lock of the door.”

As a consequence of this invention, locksmiths developed far better and secure locks and other locksmiths, criminals, etc. invented methods to defeat these new locks.
