Kromer Novum Eight lever safe lock

Theodore Kromer started his business in 1868 in Germany.

The company produced some very high quality key locks through the years.

The company is currently known as Lebtig.

Kromer produce a variety of safe locks that can be picked with the a ‘Two in One’ pick including both versions of the Novum.

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.

Opening Speed
A skilled operator with the correct training can usually open this particular safe lock in about 10 – 15 minutes.
