CB La Gard 2200 Variable Tool & VMI (Variable Magnetic Indicator)


Product Code: CB-LG2200VMI

Introduced by Tradelocks the CB La Gard 2200 Variable  & VMI (Variable Magnetic Indicator)

The Thumbturn slides along the picking stem so that you are able to bring the Thumbturn  close to the safe door face. This removes the ‘end-weight’ which can affect picking; or you may position the Thumbturn  where you prefer. The Thumbturn  has a pointer which is useful for indicating the position of each wheel.

The pick comes with the VMI  which enables you to plot your actions using the felt pen.

Technical  Information


This is a precision engineered tool and is constructed of Grade 303 Stainless Steel with a Thumbturn of Anodised Aluminium.

Chris Belcher designed this tool with a sliding Aluminium Thumb-turn instead of a bar, to give more control over manipulation and reduce the tools’ ‘end weight’.


This tool is not affected by a worn key-way. [We have come across many locks which have badly worn key-ways, to the extent that the key guide [tooth] no longer exists within the entrance to the lock-case]. Once proficient, set-up time for this tool/pick is just about zero, except for checking the handing of the lock,  and also checking that all the wheels are at the start position.


An audio amplifier is also an advantage as the sound and/or tactile  characteristics of this lock vary  greatly between locks depending upon usage and age of the lock.  

Times for opening vary, but anything between 5 mins to 35 mins depending on the condition of the lock.
