Open U Lock with a cordless grinder with a cutting wheel.

Open bike lock with a cordless grinder.

I use a Milwaukee Cordless Grinder with a cutting wheel to open most if not all Bike Locks. Just be careful where the sparks go, avoid flammable or plastics that can burn or pit. Wear Gloves and Safety glasses.


One of the best tools in the whole world is a cordless grinder with a cutting wheel. This saves my butt all the time. I could use a big pair of bolt cutters on this, but sometimes I find, when you use the bolt cutter, you can get a piece flying off and it could break a window or something or hurt somebody. I like this, you just have to be aware of the sparks will wreck your shirt. Also, you cannot be by anything flammable or anything plastic or anything glass. So just be really careful when the sparks shoot off of this thing. Usually, I aim the sparks so they go down, usually, it’s okay. So I am just going to cut off this inexpensive bike lock, I am going to use my cordless grinder. I always like to secure whatever I am cutting. I like to secure with a pair of vise grips. Now, wear your safety glasses, I always wear my gloves, just in case. Now, this is interesting. The battery is just a little tiny efficiency one. It is not big enough, not enough amperage, I guess to run the cordless grinder. So I am going to change my, swap my battery out. It’s the first time doing it with a little one. I just thought, “Oh, let’s give it a try.” Yes, look at that and look at, just sucking up the power on this. So I am going to just swap out the battery with a bigger one. I have heard about some people having some trouble with other tools. I have never had a problem with the drill. This is basically double. This is the bigger one. I have never had a problem using this. This is the first time using that. Let’s just swap it out real quick. Full power. And let’s finish it off. There we go. And remember this is hot hot hot. Don’t touch the ends, be careful you don’t burn off the bike. Yes, I could have picked this. It requires a special pick, it’s not that difficult, but I’m a for-profit locksmith. I am not going to make keys to this, it’s disposable. I think they paid 10 bucks for this. It costed more for the service call to get it off, but we didn’t destroy the bike. So, again, you could pick some of these, you could do whatever. My bottom line is I have to get this done fast and efficient and I just cut it off.

Off Shore Auto Key Programmer Clones | Mr. Locksmith Video

Off Shore Auto Key Programmer Clones | Mr. Locksmith Video

For further information go to http://mrlocksmith.com/

My daily Auto Key Programmer is the HotWire and the MVP Pro. I am on the unlimited token plan for both programmers. For the past 5+ years, I have been purchasing and testing “Offshore Auto Key Programmers.”

I have several Off Shore MVP clones. The price was so low, we keep on testing to see if any Off Shore Key Programmer could replace our existing programmers.

The MVP Clones are poorly made and no consistency or reliability with the software.

One Off Shore Key Programmer clone will program Ford and Chrysler but not Honda. Another identical clone will do Honda but not some Fords.
Another clone may work on a Nissan, but no one unit will do everything. It’s just been a zero.

So we kept on buying these, kept on testing them. Our dongles would break. The units would break. They’d fall apart. The software was inconsistent.

However, we found one clone that consistently worked well with Honda reflashes, specifically the 1998-2002 Honda Preludes.

In the early day we were just trying to save tokens, and really did we save any money? No, the clones were not good. There’s no consistency.

But again, if you don’t try, you don’t know. And there are some good units out there that the Chinese are coming out with now that are making some of the good stuff look bad.

Some of the new offshore auto key programmers they are using their own software, their own designs, and they are not clones or scammer units. Some of the Off Shore Key Programmers actually seem to be getting there.

Well, they’re coming out with nice updates on them, so they are becoming consistent.

The thing is with everything, you could have an Offshore made, really good programmer, and now they have counterfeit units of that that are total garbage.

So why are some of these Auto Key Programmers $300 and the other unit’s $50? The $50 unit is a total clone and it’s a total piece of garbage. How do you know? You don’t. That’s the big problem.

 

One way to find out is if you read the automotive forums.

Talk to other Locksmiths and view our videos.

The various plugins quality was all over the map. Some very good forums on Facebook, KeyPro website, ClearStar, etc.

So far, again, we’ve talked about this before, our go-to units are the MVP Pro and Hotwire.

Review Hot Wire Automotive Key Programmer | Mr. Locksmith Blog

Review Hot Wire Automotive Key Programmer | Mr. Locksmith Blog

For further information go to http://mrlocksmith.com/

Mr. Locksmith Automotive is reviewing the Hot Wire Automotive Key Programmer. I absolutely love this product. It was one of the first programmers I bought. We use two major Automotive Key Programmer, the MVP Pro and we the Hot Wire.

Hot Wire is it is PC based. It goes through a box and it plugs into the OBDC unit. It’s the most idiot-proof key programmer you can find out there.

The interface is so simple you don’t even need to read the manual. All you do is pick out your year, make, and model and plug it in. Turn the key to run and hit enter. The interface is unbelievably good. I absolutely love this. For beginners or advanced automotive locksmiths.

The MVP Pro is the bleeding edge and can do more autos. However, the Hot Wire is easier, quicker to use but again we had the other day where the MVP Pro wouldn’t program a vehicle, the Hot Wire did it.

In the past, I had two Mustangs side by side, same year, same model. The Hot Wire would program one but wouldn’t program the other. The MVP Pro would program the other unit but wouldn’t program the one that the Hot Wire would do. That’s a constant battle with cars. It happens.

We are making keys to cars every single day. This is what we find and we can’t do without two programmers. Nobody can.

That is why we keep on trying some of the offshore versions just to see how they go. We’re always evaluating them.

Again, if you are starting out and you’re coming into a good standard unit, this is the way to go. It’s simple, it’s easy, it’s to the point, and you can’t make a mistake. You really cannot make a mistake.

I love the tablet-based Hot Wire because it’s all in one unit.

We are subscription based on one of our Hot Wires and one we have purchased the software for the most popular autos.

No matter what anybody says, we haven’t found one key programmer that does everything.

If the manufacturer’s want to disagree, I’m waiting for that holy grail. That one machine.
