Details

The Shove Knife - Open interior doors, residential or office doors with ease…and usually without damage.

This versatile little tool is often the quickest, easiest, and least destructive way to open locked interior doors in residences or offices with simple “key in knob” locks.

The clever design lets you use the knife from either side of the door. If the door opens inward (away from you), you shove the thin, flexible Quik-Pik™ “blade” in back of the molding stop and push or slide the blade to retract the latch.

For doors that open outwards (toward you), the knife is slipped in from above or below the latch point and jiggled and pulled to hook and retract the latch.

A two-piece protective sleeve covers the “blade” for safety when the tool is not in use. Also used extensively in fire towers to slip spring latch locks during training exercises.

It's money well spent

by

This shove knife is a handy little tool to have carry on you. I use it most in alarm activations where I may need to open utility closets and trash chute doors and time/life safety is not of the essence. Once you get the hang of using this tool not much else will take it's place. While no doubt we all know people who have the skill set to use a pocket knife and credit card to accomplish the same task, I prefer this little gem. The only reason I can't give it 5 stars is that is doesn't open any latch you can get it behind, but it's a really good non-destructive start!

Nice personal tool for light door work

by

This is a great tool for interior door work where you want to be careful not to damage anything and still be able to gain access.

Have used in the past, works well for entry.

plastic handle slides off too easily. not enough leverage

Weak Handle Glue

by

The rubber grip started pulling off as soon as I used it, getting the sticky glue on my hand. I had to discontinue use.

What Am I Doing Wrong?

by

I've seen videos where this item pops a door open in one swoop. I have tried it on all types of doors in my building and at my home and it has worked perhaps four times out of four or five hundred. I'm not sure what I could be doing wrong. The thing just doesn't do anything. I'm glad it was cheap, because it's all scratched up and not returnable at this point. Looks like it's going into my throw-away-someday box.

Great little tool

by

Just tried it on doors around the home and it works great!

Best for doors that swing out, bendable for doors that swing in

by

Works best for latched doors that swing out and easily bendable for getting around the door jam for doors that swing in (albeit a little more difficult). Does not open deadbolts.
