Cawi produce a variety of safe locks that can all be picked with the same ‘Two in One’ pick

Cawi locks are fitted to safes throughout world, as a standard, by many safe manufacturers. But also because the lock has a ‘magic module’ footprint (sometimes referred to as euro footprint) it can also be easily retrofitted in place of many other locks.

Our 2 in 1 Wheel Picks are a tried and tested design, manufactured to the best quality. We now use machining nylon to reduce weight, this also helps to produce a more balanced tool.

The wheel pick enables the user to pick open the locks using the automatic spacing device that makes the procedure much easier than other designs. Each tool is fabricated from Stainless Steel and the overall length is slightly longer than the maximum key length.

The only limitation of these tools is skill acquisition and speed. The picking of safe locks is a skill that requires considerable practice in order to become proficient. The user is required to have a good knowledge of the lock mechanism and also needs to develop his manual dexterity before he can achieve the maximum benefit from these tools. The use of a pointing device to plot gates can help and lately the tool has been supplied with an additional Bolt Thrower for locks opening in the opposite direction.

Opening Speed
A skilled user with the correct training can usually open an average safe lock in less than 10 minutes. This will of course depend entirely on the lock in question and locks that contain more levers and have false notches can take much longer.
Even the handing of the lock can affect the time of thepicking process.
