What kit? This is a website to ask lawyers general questions, not a place to buy some kind of "kit."

There is no will revocation kit. When you draft a new will, it should have a clause in it that specifically revokes all prior wills. However, to be safe, once the new will has been signed, witnessed and notarized properly, then simply rip up, burn or otherwise dispose of the old will.

Your question is indicative of the fact that you do not know what you are doing. Please go and see a lawyer and have the will properly drafted. Wills are not all that expensive. It will well be worth the price.

Do-in-yourself wills are not a good idea - see a recent consumer reports article about this.
