Peterson's Sidewinder shim extractors are incredibly popular tools among locksmiths and other professionals. The shim extractors feature a bent finger that can slide along the key blade of the broken key. With a tapered nose and a 0.004-inch-thick shim, the Sidewinders lift the lock's pins or wafers up and out of the way; then, the bent finger enters the key cut. Once the pins are lifted and the finger is woven into the key cut, all you need to do is pull the key out. It really is that simple.

Many of our customers have told us that the Peterson Sidewinders are great tools for high-security automotive locks. The Sidewinders work best on pin tumbler cylinders, so if that's what you're dealing with, these tools should help you get the job done. This set of three Sidewinder shim extractors comes in a convenient tube that provides protection when you're not using the tools, and it's compact enough so that you can bring it just about anywhere you go.

These Sidewinder extractors are surprisingly strong, giving you the ability to pull broken keys out easily. The best part is that this kit is affordable enough to make it cost-effective for most professionals, so you can build your own custom tool set without spending too much money.
