I needed a more modern replacement for a 3 cylinder 2005 citreon C1 as a Tip run/ City car the only stipulation was it had to have isofix for our wee one.

Went out looking for a cheap VW up or something and just bought this instead , just have to explain to HQ
I don't think I've ever seen on of those, top work. Post it in the barge thread smile

Good kit. Bought it for the security bits I think.

Do these kits have JIS bits ? No, Well, get them promptly, no toolkit is ever complete without JIS tools.

I have one of these too. It’s been used a couple of times, but really only for training. A colleague was locked out last night but he didn’t tell me until this morning, otherwise I’d have wasted a few hours trying and failing to get in...

I'd be interested to hear how you get on with it, I'm tempted.

When I was a child I used to lock pick as a hobby. These tools are great but take a while to master. A pick gun is much easier for Yale type front doors : https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07R78DTDG/ref=cm_sw_r...

I’ve got one too, I worked on a site a few years ago where I’d pick the locks off the storage containers to piss our sub-contractors off!

I saw that on their site, but can’t really justify it as I’ve got both a Tip and a TUP. The TUP got me off the hills this week mountain biking when I had to thread it through my helmet straps when my main light failed.

Are CO2 guns not prohibited now?
No.

Wouldn't have taken long to check, either.
Sorry I'd read the law had changed in 2004 and it said " illegal to sell, acquire or transfer an air weapon that uses a self-contained gas cartridge"

I thought these fell under that which concerned me as I'd got a walther CP99 in the loft.
Late response, but the law refers to the "Brocock Air Cartridge", where the compressed air is in the cartridge itself, which looks a lot like an "actual" pistol cartridge. They were banned because they were remarkably easy to convert into real firearms. Shame really, I had a go with one on Stamford fair years ago, and it was good fun.
