Problem #1: The Tools Slide and SlipAlong the Linkage
It has been difficult at times to maneuver the locking linkage. Once the end of the tool is placed on the lock linkage, the tool wants to slip along the smooth surface of the linkage as opposed to moving the linkage to the unlocked position. The reason for this is simple. The round smooth surface of the car opening tool is being placed on the round smooth surface of the locklinkage. Two round, smooth surfaces, placed together do not work well. This works against your efforts to maneuver the linkage to the unlocked position. Tools that are designed to couple or seat on the lock linkage are knurled before our flattening process.
Knurl the part of the tool that makes contact with the lock linkage.
This process provides you with a smooth tool on the sideswith a textured surface that makes contact with the smooth locking linkage.
The textured surface of the tool makes it easier to maneuver the linkage as opposed to slipping or sliding along the linkage. Less strength is required.

Problem #2: Tools Are Either Too Big or Too Weak
Over the last few years, car manufacturers have increased the quality and materialsused in making car doors. Their efforts have created tighter doors and less space between the weather stripping and the glass. The tightness created has made it increasingly difficult to insert your car opening tools between the glass and weather stripping in order to lower the tool into the door cavity. When you are able to insert your tool, it becomes more difficult to maneuver your tool arounddue to tightness. The solution sounds simple. Make tools thinner to make them easier to enter the door cavity, right? The problem then becomes the strength of the tool. By making the tool thinner the tool looses its stiffness and strength. Without the strength, the linkage becomes difficult if not impossible to maneuver.
