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. Are you sure thats not a chinese knockoff? I have a lock that looks just like it yet a tad smaller and its crunchy inside. Im just getting to it, not sure if i have the skill yet. Maybe though, I just finished with a Magnum 240 which notoriously has a pair of spools in the middle.

  2. I was given one of these at work. The maintenance guy said he had lost the key a while back. Whats weird is I really don't feel like we have the same lock here. I can definitely tell there are at least 4 spools. Is this possible?

  3. I have a much older version of this lock. The keyway is much slimmer. I have, unfortunately, lost the key to the lock. I had hoped there would be a way to make a replacement key, but of course the core is not removable. The original key is somewhere rattling around in a box. This lock is somewhere between 16-20 years old.

  4. Bill,
    Would this lock been susceptible to the "smacking" method with a strike from a hammer that releases the part on the shackle? With the cutaway, it appears that with it being spring loaded, it would have released perhaps.

  5. Bill I have a new one of those that I bought and it has been a PITA to pick…I wonder if you can do it…hmmmm sounds like a challenge.. 🙂  PM me

  6. There is a much easier way to open a Brinks lock. I feel that they are a waste of money even for a newbie. Honestly the shrink wrap took orders of magnitude longer to open than the lock. I want to secure my bike with Brinks shrink wrap.
    I was disappointed how easy they are to SPP. They also rock open even faster and I even was able to use my newest technique of opening it with only a tension wrench and no pick. But they are even easier to by pass via the key way with a shim. In fact this was my first attempt to shim a lock especially up the wrong way and you cannot believe my surprise at how easy it was.
    I had to quickly bring out my trusty patented Master high security Boron Carbide lock to restore my faith in the the universe. At least that one forces me use a pick in addition to a tension wrench. 

  7. Wish I had seen this video before I bought this lock.. I figured with a name like Brinks it would a little tricky .. Package even displayed High Security .. I think is has a spool (got a descent false set) .. But in the end it only took a couple passes at most with a home brew Bogota to open .. I was very disappointed .. At least it only cost me $8.00

  8. hello there i got a question, made me a cutaway but i think i did go to deep my pins wont hold anymore is there anything u know to let it work ?

    was thinking of put it full of hard glue and then drill the pin holes out so the pins would hold on the hard glue

  9. thats crazy in my exp Brinks locks are always good for a couple of spools I have that same exact lock and I know for a fact its got 3 spools cuz I can feel them and it gives a false set……….wonder if Master lock bought them 🙂 thanks for posting
