I've never seen vacuum powered door locks.
The days before electric stuff on cars. My dad'* car has vaccum powered locks and power windows.

I also think this would only work on vaccum powered locks, but it'* worth a shot, can't hurt anything.

call me a skeptic. i dont see how that could possibly work. and the explanation sounds like manure too.

probaby just someting that affected a very few models of cars before they noticed their grevous error.

even a vaccuum actuated shouldnt unlock from airpressure in the tumbler assuming they had regular tumblers, the thing has to rotate, i'll believe whne i see something more reputable than an internet video and a few anonymous comments supporting it

just because it didn't work on a bonneville doesn;t mean it doesnt work on other cars.

yea but thing about it, a key tumbler has gotta rotate, pressur ein a cylinder doesnt make rotation, now i havent seen a vaccum actuated lock but i would imagine it would have a seperate vaccum actuator with an arm and lever to rotate everything, does anyone have a schemaatic on vacuum actuated locks?

Damn. I had high hopes.

I tried it with a golf ball, 2 of Bo'* toys, and a beach ball. None of them worked. :(
