    lockpick

    I need a lock pick for 2007 STS w/mute button on wheel. Anyone? The guys at best radar are not making them at the moment or maybe stopped making due to cost compared to demand. I believe they are the only ones too.

    Have you tried the Classified ad section of the forum? How about eBay?

    Pretty sure Tomm said that coastal tech canceled their STS lockpick and he couldnt make modified ones any more as such he was done...
    That said I wouldnt take 500 for my lock pick...

    Re: lockpick

    We ran out of parts and since we have to buy many parts in bulk we would need to lay out almost $500 to start making more. We have only sold anywhere from 0-2 pieces a month and make around $60-$70 profit a unit. We would need to sell around 7 units just to break even when you factor in the upfront parts cost. With the current run rate of 0-2 a month it could take 6 months to break even and from a business standpoint this just does not make sense to do. I would be willing to maybe make one more batch of them but I will do not it unless I get at-least 5-6 guaranteed orders. If anyone else will want one just use the contact us page on our website and ask to be put on the waiting list. If I get enough demand for one more batch I would be willing to do one last batch of them.

    This is ONLY for the 2005-2007 STS Models. We do have lockpicks available for the 2008-2012 models and those are in stock.

    Re: lockpick

    Thanks Tomm went your web site and requested. I went to classifieds there are some lockpicks for sale none are for 2007, or are 05-07 STS lockpicks all compatible?

    Re: lockpick

    How likely will it be to have a lockpick for the new XTS, with the cue?

    Re: lockpick

    If someone is selling a 2005 STS Lockpick that we produced with a manual activation switch then it would work in any year STS. I checked the classifieds and there is one listed for sale:

    http://www.cadillacforums.com/cadill...brand-new.html

    But it looks like they have not responded to anyone's questions in two weeks. If they respond ask for their name and I can look up and validate the purchase.

    Sorry, You wont find anything for the XTS, It uses a unique radio and there are less XTS then STS vehicles on the market so the market for a product for that specific vehicle is just not there.

    Just FYI this one has already been sold as I purchased it earlier this week

    Re: lockpick

    Found a new supplier that will sell me smaller quantities on some of the parts I needed and I found a 100FT roll of GPS Cable instead of the 500ft rolls I purchased in the past so it will bring my costs down to be able to make one more batch. I will make 10 more units and that will be it. Everytime I shut them down you guys wheel me back in but this will be it. I have opened backorders back up and the site will take only up to 10 backorders on the 2005-2007 models.
