GREAT FOR TOP OF KEY WAY PICKING. Who says you can't please everyone? When several locksmiths felt our original pry bar was too thick for some of their needs, we did just that. Now almost everyone buys both! At 0.040" the Peterson Pry Bar Lite has the same great features as our Pry Bar, but with a little more flexibility of key way fit. Of course it has our serrated edge technology applied to lock it in the key way! It is made from the same Government Stainless Steel that made the original pry bar such a hit in the field.
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!

Perfect and quality! Wish they made this in a bent version for ergonomic purposes but totally worth the money as is!
This is my go-to tension wrench when picking. I like the short end. It really doesn't take up too much space, allowing me to comfortably maneuver my pick beside it.
This bar is useful with Euro locks and certain paracentrics, and allows precise control of tension, which I found very helpful when controlling rotation of the plug in a lock having lots of spool pins. I've used it most effectively as BOK tension recently. #lcoksport
