The SPARROWS padlock driver is designed to bypass the very popular 700 and 1100 series American Padlocks. The American 700 and 1100 models are often copied and duplicated by other manufactures. This further increases the impact of the By-Pass Driver as it will also open these cloned designs. Recent updates to the 700 and 1100 series include a protective disk that can prevent the effectiveness of the driver. On older model 700 and 1100 American locks, locks with riveted keeps, duplicates and most models that have been serviced or rekeyed the Sparrows ByPass Driver is highly effective. The Driver slides through the keyway and with a turn the shackle opens, it’s just like using a key.
The SPARROWS ByPass Driver is made with all steel components that have been polished smooth featuring permanent thermo plastic handles.As with all of the SPARROWS line this is a professional grade tool.
Sparrows Padlock ByPass Driver instructions
The Padlock ByPass driver is used with the golf head tip facing down.
The special curve in the tip is designed so that the driver will slide though the keyway. The spine of the driver should pass down the center of the keyway.
Push the driver all the way to the very back of the keyway and give the driver a clockwise turn. You will have to use the same amount of force you would to turn a key. If this is unsuccessful try to wiggle the driver toget it into position with very small clockwise and counter clockwise turns about 1/8th of a turn.
When the Sparrows Padlock ByPass driver is in the correct position a turn in the clockwise direction will open the shackle.
What the diver does inside the lock is it goes all the way through the keyway to the inner workings of the lock
allowing you to bypass the keyway and open the lock. Most but not all modern locks will have a security disk that now covers the back of the keyway preventing the bypass drive from entering the inner workings of the lock. This disk can get lost when locks are serviced or rekeyed so it is very possible for the Sparrows Padlock Bypass driver to open modern locks.
