Universal Lock-Out Tool Set
Great for the price
This product is great for the price. I have owned several slim jim kits over the years and this one is very similar. I have used the kit several times as I started a small side business opening peoples cars for them. I ordered 2 of these kits, one to keep in my vehicle and another to keep at home in case I locked myself out of my car. Keep in mind that the instructions that come with this kit are not that great and have several incorrectly spelled words. I would suggest using youtube for referencing how to use the tools included if you are a beginner in this field as the instructions are a little lacking. Other than that this kit will get you started and will work as they are supposed to. However, this kit will not take repeated abuse like other more expensive kits, so be gentle and take care of the tools, otherwise you will be replacing them. If you plan on using the kit alot you might want to invest a little more $ in a more professional kit. I hope this review helps you with your decision.

The kit is decent quality, fairly complete for your money. Quality is good for the price. I bought this to replace a kit I bought 30 years ago while working security / LE, for about three times the cost, and it stacks up favorably in selection and quality.
I would recommend the Steck Big Easy over this unit. Newer vehicles are easier to "breach" with that type of tool. This kit fills he void it might leave on older "classic" cars.

Good to have in case of emergency
I found this kit and had to have it. I haven't used it yet thankfully! Although when i do, I'm sure everything I need is there.

This lock out kit is okay for the money, but I though that the metal pieces were going to be a lot stronger then they are. This set is for people who may lock themselves out every now and then. I would not try to use this on a weekly basis. On the other hand, if you purchase the air wedge these tools will make your life easy.
