Lockmasters’ Bolt Buster II (BBII) is a specialized drill rig designed to cut the locking bolts on both Class 5 and 6 legal or letter sized GSA approved file cabinets. It is designed to take a high torque drill motor needed to cut these hardened bolts out of the technician’s hand and incorporate it into the drill rig. The technician can operate the trigger on the drill motor remotely with one hand while turning the feed handle with the other, making this drill rig the safest and fastest on the market for this type of work.
The drill rig is built to absorb the pressure and torque that is needed to cut the hardened bolts on both Class 5 & 6 file cabinets. No drill rig has ever been produced that is robust enough to cut the bolts with a carbide holesaw on a Class 5 file cabinet, which is built to withstand no less than 10 man-minutes of forced entry - until now.
The BBII is encapsulated with clear acrylic to catch any hot debris and smoke created as the locking bolts are cut. The clear acrylic sides let the technician view the cutting process and can be removed if needed. This should eliminate the need for burn permits that are required in some instances or if the file cabinet needs to be opened in an office environment.
This is an approved method of opening a GSA approved file cabinet. It is also the most cost effective method, since it does not damage the combination lock, which costs more than the drawer head. Once opened you can reuse the lock or in the case of a malfunction the lock can be returned to the manufacturer for failure analysis. Also more exotic hard plate boxes and relocking methods are being developed, which will eliminate the option of drilling the combination lock. Cutting the locking bolts and replacing the drawer head may be the only option in the near future for opening new GSA approved file cabinets.
