Working Under a Dashboard with Bi-Focal Glasses Tip

A problem that I'm sure many locksmith technicians had came across before, was looking up when are under an automobile dashboard while wearing  bi-focal glasses. Although during the years I ran into many different solutions, the following is the one I found most effective.

To be honest, wearing the bi-focals glasses upside down is not very effective and wearing them on the end of your nose is not very comfortable. Also, for those locksmith technicians who are getting old (like me), crawling underneath is not really an option, and even if they could looking up far enough to see what they need to see would be very difficult.

My solution was to have the lens duplicated on the top with the same or just a shade weaker, prescriptions lens cut. I can now see through the center of the lens, or if it needs to be magnified by the bi-focal, I can look through either the top or the bottom of my glasses.

Ford 10-Cut Ignition Tip

Like most locksmith technicians, using a roll pins to prevent the ears from spinning on a ford 10 cut ignition is a nice way to repair the problem. However, I have found that a .350 lab pan also works well. Simply align the keyway face plate (use a blank key) and drill the proper sized hole. Put in a dab of superglue or Loctite then the lab pin and the job is finished.

although the role pin is very secure, I have found that the lab pin works just as well and only takes about 10 minutes to do the entire job. Fast, simple and easy. And best of all, we all have pinning kits on the truck, so there’s little hunting for the right part to do the job
