GREAT FOR TOP OF KEY WAY PICKING The Peterson Pry Bar is for the many locksmiths who requested a strong and solid tension tool for applying "top of the key way" tension. At 0.050," our "Serrated Pry Bar" is the width of the key blade segment of most key ways. This strong-arm partner is notched to eliminate contact with the first pin, flat to fit in your pick set, and has our serrated edge technology that locks it in any key way! Made of our famous Government Stainless Steel: only the best, of course!
Please Note: These tools have a small "nub" midway on one side of the approximately 0.156 wide central width of the tool. This is the remnant from a "laser tab" created to hold the part in the sheet when the parts are laser cut. Our polishing tumbler rounds and smooths this tab to a very small smooth rounded lump typically protruding out of the side about 0.015 (15 thousandths, about the thickness of a matchbook cover). Most of our customers don't find any issue with this small inconsistency one one side of the otherwise perfectly straight edges of the tool.
If we were to take the time to file it at the factory we would have to pass on that extra operation's cost to purchasers. As less than 1% have ever mentioned it to us we feel it would be unfair to raise our costs (and prices) for the other 99% of our customers. If you find it to be objectionable, it is easily filed off to your specific standards. Thanks for understanding.
But we are tumbling them longer to reduce the nub somewhat. This also reduces the tooth projections, but they still lock in nicely.
Remember: Peterson invented the flat tension tools - including our Pry-bars. Must have been a great idea with the copies being made... HOWEVER: OURS ARE MADE FROM A SECRET STEEL AND ARE BETTER!

These are wonderful for defeating spool pins.
Perfect and quality! Wish they made this in a bent version for ergonomic purposes but totally worth the money as is!
I’ve tried making pry bars and other tensioners as well as purchasing from other manufacturers and from the first time I tried this pry bar I knew it was my go to from that point forward. Fits snug and doesn’t slip. Great tool.
The .04 came with the ghost pick set I bought a few months ago, but I’ve been using this one a lot more. For most of the locks I was trying to pick the .04 was just to small and gave to much wiggle room, but the .05 fits perfect in most of the tougher locks I’ve tried picking.
This prybar is very well made. Its the kind of quality I expect to last a lifetime. It works very well for me and I fully intend to get the thinner sizes as well. You've made it an easy choice for where to buy quality tools at reasonable prices. Thank you.
I highly recommend anyone involved in locksport to try the 3 different sizes available here, as they make a world of a difference in feedback and more room in the keyway. Much better than using 2 tension wrenches, such as on American series locks. There is a learning curve, in that u will knock the wrench out of the keyway at first, keep practicing, once u get used to it, that will no longer happen, and there is a noticeable difference in what you will be able to open
When I first saw this I thought it was way too much money. I mean how good could it be? But I bit the bullet and a week later bought the other size too. Feedback is amazing using this pry bar. I never would have guessed I was living in the dark ages until I tried this. If you're on the fence, just buy it. Peterson's quality is amazing. Keep up the good work!
