Hi Everyone: We are excited to announce that the Z-Tool turns 30 years old in 2013. We would like to thank you for 30 successful years!
From the simple design of the original Z-Tool, to our complete Grand Master Z-Tool Kit, we believe we are tops in the field of automotive lockout tooling.
You will note two new additions on our products page. We would like to offer you the opportunity to try our NEW “One Piece Dual Reach Tool” which both pushes and pulls door locks. It is offered alone or in a package deal (See Plan C). Second, for those of you called out to unlock big rig commercial vehicles we have the NEW “Wing Z.” This is the only tool that will unlock a Columbia Class Freightliner.
Please take a few minutes to inventory your kit. Replace any damaged or broken items and take advantage of our 15% discount by ordering before March 30th.
We are excited to ask you to join us on facebook at, slide lock too comp any - z - too l. After years of talking to you over the phone I’d love to put a face to your name! Patrick Adcock, shipping and manufacturing, Tim Cox, research and development and I have all posted our photos, and would like you to do the same. Reserved for our facebook friends will be special promotions throughout the year. So, let’s get talking!
Once again, thank you and we look forward to hearing from you soon.
P.S. Don’t forget that you can conveniently order your 2013 Manual and tools at our
As in years past, 2013 has once again challenged us with over 50 new models or redesigns.
The recent trends of cables and window guards continue with the new models. However the spongy weather stripping up in the corner of the window has been replaced with tighter frameless seals. To counter this difficult situation we have developed a new “Dual Reach” tool. It has the black tip door pull on one end and the blue tip lock push on the other. The “Dual Reach” has a slim design and enters effortlessly into the tighter frameless seals without the need of a wedge. It also has the plastic sleeve to protect the vehicle during the procedure. This new tool is offered alone, or in a package deal. (See Plan C)
2013 also brings new updates in the commercial truck opening section of your manual. We have a new tool called the “Wing Z” that is designed specifically for the Columbia Class Freightliner. It slips under the wing window, turns down and depresses the window button.
I believe our new long reach tool the “Dual Reach” and of course our “Big Reach” are the best one piece tools available and will make your job easier, quicker and more profitable.
As always we pledge to offer you the most efficient and complete automotive kits possible. Thank you for the patronage and we hope you have a profitable 2013.
All “Z” best to you,
Research and Development
