can be very helpful if a cylinder is picked in the wrong direction, or
if picking requires the plug to be rotated in one direction and then flipped.
Often, due to wear of the plug or tumblers (because it is a right or left-handed

The plug spinner provides a means to apply high rotational torque to the
plug when picked and move the lower pins across shear line without having
any drivers drop into lower chambers. There are several plug spinners
that are available and they all accomplish the same task, but in slightly
Perhaps the best plug spinner that is now available is produced by Peterson Manufacturing, shown (ABOVE). It utilizes a coil spring and allows rotation in either direction. It can develop sufficient torque to effectively turn virtually any plug rapidly enough to cross the shear line without dropping pins or wafers. The blade that is inserted into the keyway can be easily replaced and will allow a sufficient link to the keyway to transfer rotational energy.
