“Original Lishi” is, as far as I know, a locksmith tools trademark registered by someone from outside China, it’s just another of Mr. Li’s distributors, but they work much further with Mr. Li.
“Original Lishi” doesn’t disclosure where they’re from, their contact information, but I am certain that their website is not operated and run by Mr. Li, it’s not the “official” website either.
The products sold by “Original Lishi” is truly designed and manufactured by Mr. Li in his factory in Qinghuangdao, China, with their own packing (or without, I am not sure), and a so-called verification sticker.
The tools sold by “Original Lishi” has a Mr. Li’s face on each tool, that’s right, it’s made by Mr. Li, the face is Mr. Li’s trademark.
Lizhiqin Tools is just Mr. Li’s original tools, 100% original tools comes from Mr. Li’s factory, with a “Mr Li” face logo on each tool, and, with original packaging.
Please always look for the ‘Mr Li’ face logo for a guaranteed original Lizhiqin product. Please also trust that all tools we supply are from the original manufacturer, ensuring quality and supply is guaranteed.
Lizhiqin Tools also comes with a verification label on each tools since 2021, you can scratch off the coating at the bottom of the label and scan the QR code with your smart phone to see if it’s an original Lizhiqin product.
There’re many so called “Lishi” Tools on the market, so far I know, 2 brands call themselves “Lishi”, 1 doesn’t but obviously stole Mr. Li’s concept. Here’s my post explaining differences among all of these “Lishi tools”: Genuine Lishi, Original Lishi, Super Tools, as well as Lizhiqin Tools.
As I said in my previous post, Genuine Lishi is made by Mr. Li’s ex business partner Tradelocks (aka. UAP Limited), and Mr. Li has no relationship with European “Genuine Lishi” today. Genuine Lishi has its own product line, for example their Blind Picks, Night Vision Tools, T3 Tools, as well as their standard genuine Lishi tools. All their tools are made in their partner factory in Shenzhen, China.
Above is a typical Super Tools HU66, made by another well-known Chinese lock pick manufacturer called “H&H”. H&H and Mr. Li has no relationship either, H&H also didn’t advertise their tools as “Lishi Tools”, but you guys can see from the image that they stole Mr. Li’s concept and designed their own copies. We never sold them.
Original Lishi is a trademark I think doesn’t belong to Mr. Li and/or his factory/company. I don’t know where I found or knew it’s operated by an Australian company, which is one of Mr. Li’s big customers. Mr. Li’s factory manufactures tools for them, with their own verification label on each tools.
Original Lishi shares the same product line with Mr. Li’s factory, both 2-in-1 tools and readers, same as what we’re selling now. It uses Mr. Li’s new trademark on each tools, but the discontinued oval “Lishi” logo still appears on their website logo.
Mr. Li, the designer, creator, inventor of all Lishi tools. When originated in 2000 , Mr. Li named his tools “Lishi Tools” (中文：李氏工具), with an oval “Lishi” logo. When Mr. Li broke up with Genuine Lishi (aka. UAP Limited), he changed his trademark to Lizhiqin Tools (中文：李志勤工具), with his face and name (中文: 李志勤) as his new logo.
Please always look for the ‘Mr Li’ face logo for a guaranteed original Mr Li product. Lizhiqin Tools is the most effective way to unlock and decode vehicle locks whilst at the scene. The tools we supply are from the original manufacturer, ensuring quality and supply is guaranteed. There are currently more than 100 tools available.
Lizhiqin 2-In-1 Tools are a time saving way to open locked cars or make replacement keys. Each tool is inserted into a vehicle lock and used to pick the lock to a position where it traps the wafers. The wafer depth can then be read to determine the cuts for a replacement key.
Lizhiqin Readers allow users to reader wafer depths without having to pick the lock first. There are many different models of readers that will work on both automotive and motorcycle applications. Readers are a fast and easy alternative to other wafer depth reading methods that are available today.
Did you know that Lizhiqin makes accessories as well? Lishi key cutter gives you the ability to quickly punch out a replacement key that can then be duplicated onto a permanent blank. Looking for tool storage? Their cases are the best way to keep your tools safe.
