(49) American Padlock Series 40 SPP’d


LockLab is Fan funded!  Help pay for stuff to review, break and talk trash about, and maybe even give away when we’re done.  Join the Tribe!

My vises are made by Panavise, a U.S. Company.  The one with the wide jaws is the model 350.  The smaller one is the model 301. Both have the 312 Base mount – www.panavise.com



  1. Hey Bill I got one like that. The date is UFM, June 1992. It’s also riveted. It’s hard to pick..
    Thanks to this video I opened it.

  2. Yeah, I tried to drill out the rivet in an old American Series 50. It got ugly pretty fast. I ultimately had to machine a screw with a tiny, thin head to fit into the hole and still leave enough room for the shackle to close. I swore to never do it again…

  3. QFM=10/92, RFL=09/93, OFL=12/93

    I displayed the sheet showing all the codes in the "American Padlock Bypass Tools" video at the 3:54 minute point. If you'd like the spreadsheet, send me an email at bosnianbill1 AT gmail DOT com and I'll get it out to you.
