Mauer Variator A/B 8 & 11 lever safe lock 70076/9

Mauer was founded in 1864 in Germany and was a family-held business until about 2000, when it was sold to KABA.

KABA is a contraction of Kassa Bauer (Bauer Safe), which began in Germany about 1862.

These locks are in wide use and have been fitted and retrofitted to various makes of safe over that past 12 years or so. The lock has deep false gates and picking the correct sequence can be difficult. For this reason we also a have decoder for these locks

Our 2 in 1 Wheel Picks are a tried and tested design, manufactured to the best quality. We now use machining nylon to reduce weight, this also helps to produce a more balanced tool

The wheel pick enables the user to pick open the locks using the automatic spacing device that makes the procedure much easier than other designs. Each tool is fabricated from Stainless Steel and the overall length is slightly longer than the maximum key length.

The only limitation of these tools is skill acquisition and speed. The picking of safe locks is a skill that requires considerable practice in order to become proficient. The user is required to have a good knowledge of the lock mechanism and also needs to develop his manual dexterity before he can achieve the maximum benefit from these tools. The use of a pointing device to plot gates can help.

A skilled user with the correct training can usually open these locks within an hour.
