New Lock Picking Supplies and Go-Tubes Available in the ITS Store

by May 3, 2013 05/3/13

We’re proud to support our good friend and ITS Plank Owner, Karl, from OscarDelta by carrying their Go-Tubes in the ITS Store! Go-Tubes are perfect for deep carry concealment to store small items you need to protect from damage, loss or unauthorized access.

Go-Tube Concealment Device 01
Go-Tube Concealment Device 03

They’re also ideal for emergency cash, lock picks (both our 4-piece Titanium Flats or the 2-piece Bogotas fit), mini flash drives, maps, documents, storing duct tape (wrapped around exterior), geocaches, glow sticks, matches, mini sewing kits, spare batteries (2 x AA or 4 x CR123).

Go-Tube Concealment Device 06

Each Go-Tube comes standard with a keychain cap or can be replaced with the included spare cap for lower profile carry. The interior tube can also be easily cut down in size with a hacksaw to create an even smaller concealment device.

Pick up your Go-Tube here today!

Tubular Picks

You might remember the recent article and video that Bryan put together going over the basics of Tubular Lock Picking. Due to the multiple requests and great feedback we received, we’re now offering Tubular Lock Picks in the ITS Store.

Tubular Lock Pick 02 Tubular Lock Pick 03

Also known as Adjustable Tubular Manipulation Picks, these tubular picks allow adjustment of picking needle pressure, which gives them the versatility to pick tubular locks with higher spring pressures.

Tubular Lock Picks come in a 7-pin or 8-pin configuration and feature a comfortable, slip-resistant rubber handle. Each Tubular Lock Pick comes with a decoder key, adjustment wrench, rubber protective cover and instruction sheet.

Grab your Tubular Lock Pick here!

Visible Cutaway Practice Handcuff

We’ve long advocated the need to practice getting out of handcuffs in case they’re ever used on you during illegal restraint situations, especially with how easy they are for anyone to obtain. The clear cut-away design of the  practice handcuffs we’re now carrying  allows you to easily see the manipulation of the locking mechanism inside the handcuff.

Handcuff Practice Trainer 01 Handcuff Practice Trainer 03

The trainers also allow for single-lock or double-lock picking and come with a handcuff key.

Purchase the Practice Handcuff here!

Tubular Practice Lock

Tubular Locks can be hard to source for practice, so we’ve sourced them for you. These are actual 7 and 8 pin practice locks that feature a removable locking bar.

Tubular Practice Lock 01

They’re perfect for mounting to a lock pick board for practice too. The 7-pin Tubular Practice Lock comes with two keys and the 8-pin Tubular Practice Lock comes with one. Each also comes with all the hardware needed to mount.

Tubular Practice Locks are available here!

I was following the comments as, I, too, was interested in the key holder. It appears to be an aluminum Bladekey Zip, which uses a ziptie to hold the keys. The newer version which just completed kickstarter funding is called the Bladekey Bolt, and that uses a Chicago screw. It looks like they're taking orders (I don't know if I can post a link, but a google search will find it quickly), and I just placed it. Seems reasonably priced for a neat piece of kit.

Looks like I am the tenth person interested in the key "shackle". Can we please learn who the manufacturer, is? Thanks!

I'm also in for the keychain - can't locate one that looks anywhere near as nice. Maybe package them with the go-tubes?

ITS can you please define illegal restraint. I assume you mean when people pose as officers and use handcuffs to restrain a person or possibly an intruder in your house that might by chance be carrying cuffs. However if you are referencing illegal restraint by officers you need to research the authority a peace officer has been authorized to use before giving the public easy access to learning how to "get out of cuffs." Why not address the real issue which is how to identify someone posing as an officer who pulls you over or teach self defense tactics against someone who tries to put handcuffs on you. This article like many in the past give criminals the edge to get out of being restrained and potentially put an officers life at risk. This skill set as you refer to it, is nothing more than a skill used for criminals and some professionally trained LEO's who use it for there job duties. I know you are into statistics so please show me the stats that prove your theory of people being restrained by cuffs annually and why this "skill set" is so important to release to the masses. Officers are constantly having to keep up with the criminals and the new skills sets they are acquiring. www.policeone.com/investigations/articles/5148998-Chief-Ala-cop-killer-had-handcuff-key/

Where could I source one of the keychains shown in the third picture of the Go-Tubes?

That's an early version of the BladeKey that Bryan got. I'm actually testing out a 3D printed prototype of the final version.

It's a pretty slick little device (look for a little update on it) but some of my keys didn't fit the bolt and I had to drill them out a little. It's something you can do with a regular power drill at home though.

James,

Your comment intrigued me. I must insist on sharing the thoughts that your comment inspired.

"ITS can you please define illegal restraint."

Interesting request. The title, substance and theme of the article is to showcase new products ITS is offering. Your opener is completely off topic, not a good start, but lets continue, for funsies.

"I assume you mean when people pose as officers and use handcuffs to restrain a person or possibly an intruder in your house that might by chance be carrying cuffs."

Thats using the old noggin! That is a completely logical assumption, which null and voids your initial request.

"However if you are referencing illegal restraint by officers you need to research the authority a peace officer has been authorized to use before giving the public easy access to learning how to “get out of cuffs.”"

Now we are operating on "if". This is always a dangerous task, especially since you continue to carry your comment off topic and even moreso considering your continuance is based on an answer you had yet to receive from the writers of the article. Also, lets discuss the authority of a peace officer. Their "authority" SHOULD be bound by the constitution, you know, that little piece of paper they swear to uphold yet are unable/refuse to read. Specifically with the 4th ammendment. No worries, the mass wiping of @$$3$ with the constitution is done for our "safety", so its completely okay to do it. You dont like "giving the public easy access to learning" x y or z? I am not certain why you are revealing yourself as a lover of censorship, but seeing as you have inferred an "elitist air" with the authority of LEOs, this is no surprise.

"Why not address the real issue which is how to identify someone posing as an officer who pulls you over or teach self defense tactics against someone who tries to put handcuffs on you."

HAHAHA, i am sorry but i couldnt help myself. Why not address the real issue? They are, the ITS crew wrote a very informative article about new products they are offering. Or did you mean, "why not address the real issue in my mind that i have created?" well, i suppose one logical answer is that the ITS crew is not filled with mind readers or people that care about YOUR "real issues".

"This article like many in the past give criminals the edge to get out of being restrained and potentially put an officers life at risk."

Where are the articles in question to support this off topic claim? Apparently you are not a fan of evidence. (literary aside, this is foreshadowing James' ironic request of statistical evidence while he provides no evidence of his own claims) Also, your feathers are ruffled by the "potential" of putting an officers life at risk? Watch the Tom Cruise movie 'Minority Report', its a wonderful way of learning that one should not live their life based on possibilities, but realities. Furthermore, the legitimacy of the complaint that this knowledge MIGHT "put an officers life at risk" implies two things, 1) that no one elses life is ever at risk (ppl of all sexes, genders, ages, races, religions die everyday, check your local newspaper for evidence) and 2) that LEOs are NOT aware that their "job" is dangerous. Ill concede to the fact PDs have intelligence screening (im referencing the ceiling of this and not the floor), but i highly doubt their candidates are unaware of the "icky" situations they might find themselves in if they become an LEO.

"This skill set as you refer to it, is nothing more than a skill used for criminals and some professionally trained LEO’s who use it for there job duties."

James, at this point i must thank you for sharing your unending knowledge with us. Here i was thinking Gods will of decree is capable of and DOES use ALL things to His ends, but you have successfully proven that wrong with your bold declarative statement "is nothing more than a skill used for criminals". And there you have it, in the history of mankind, lockpicking has NEVER been used for righteous ends outside "professionally trained LEOs". I could also point out the fact you are giving LEOs a tremendous amount of trust in their infallible abilities. No good has come from lockpicking outside of cops and no bad has been done by cops in the use of their lockpicking...tremendous!

"I know you are into statistics so please show me the stats that prove your theory of people being restrained by cuffs annually and why this “skill set” is so important to release to the masses."

I released my laughter earlier, but i admit this did make me smile. The ITS crew at no point in this article created a theory and then SUPPORTed it. Please notice how i said capitalized "support". If one is to prove a "theory", by definition, it is no longer a theory:) Again, censhorship neednt be justified, our countrys founding document is against it.

"Officers are constantly having to keep up with the criminals and the new skills sets they are acquiring."

My favorite part of your comment! This is completely true, so much so, it probably did not need to be said. Yes, officers do have to keep up with criminals, thats the precise reason we still have LEOs even after we figured out how to catch cattle thieves riding horses...

James, I must make a request much as you have. Will you please keep your unGodly, unconstitutional fascist filth off of ITS? I assure you, however, there is an appropriate place for it. May i suggest your journal?

The new products look legit! I reckon ima have to try out the tubular picks!

I've been in law enforcement for the last 17 years and work as a full time Deputy. Nothing we do here at ITS is anti-law enforcement. This is information which every LEO should be aware of and certainly hardened criminals know. Knowing how to pick a set of handcuffs will only heighten awareness to the flaws current handcuffs have.

Also any good LEO will tell you handcuffs are just a part of your prisoner restraint plan. Thinking you can simply handcuff someone and then relax will get you killed. Same if you find yourself handcuffed; have to will and knowledge to win.
