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

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/
Am I the only one who saw the go-tube and thought of the old CIA rectal E&E tube?
