The shaft is covered with a non-slip gripping surface, and the shaft end of the tool is formed into a pry bar capable of slipping into tight spaces. The head of the tool has a flat driving surface, with an "A" type lock puller machined into the adz of the blade. It is used for "through-the-lock" method of forcible entry, the "A" lock puller will remove the lock cylinders from Mortise and Rim locks. The will will also remove key in the knob locks and tubular locks also. It can be used to remove the steel plates protecting the cylinders on some locks and always found protecting cylinders on the Fox Police Bar and Brace locks. After the protecting plate is removed, the cylinders can be pulled from the door and the lock opened.
