Dangerfield 140mm Traveler Hook (Shrum Tool) Latch Bypass

Bypass tool for depressing latches and getting around protective hardware


The Traveler hook, made famous by online penetration testing work videos and presentations is an incredibly powerful tool that will allow you to bypass the locks on outward opening doors.

Many modern door latches have an additional protrusion next to the main latch known as a 'DEAD LATCH'. When the door is correctly hung and the strike-plate properly installed, the dead latch will be in a depressed position when the door is closed. This prevents the main latch from being depressed, and therefore doesn't let the door open unless the right key is used from the exterior or the handle is used from the interior.

When the dead latch doesn't depress, whether due to door tolerances, installation mistakes or an incorrectly sized or installed strike-plate - three things that are depressingly frequent - the door then becomes vulnerable to the Traveler Hook (shrum tool) exploit.

The Traveler Hook is a simple and effective tool that allows you to depress the latch and dead-latch into the door with a simple turning motion. For such a simple looking tool, you get a whole load of lock picking bypass bang for your buck!

Due to the length of this Traveler Hook you'll often be able to reach around the strike-plate even when correctly installed, and still effect this vulnerability, disengage the latch, and open the door.

Designed and manufactured for this purpose, this Traveler Hook will not turn in the handle like other versions and will give you instant access on many jobs where such locks are installed and need to be opened.

While many companies are offering sets of two traveler hooks (at twice the price) one undersized and one oversized, we found just the right length that means you've got all you need in the one tool.

Without a doubt deserves a place in any professional locksmiths kitbag and any lock picker interested in cunning and effective bypass tools.
