Learn How To Open A Padlock With An Aluminum Can [hacks]

| December 23, 2011 | Reply

I don’t want to tell you why I might use this, nor do I want to know why you might want this information. It is pretty interesting either way. Using an aluminum can you can cut and mold pieces into what turn out to be thin metal shims which can slide the tooth holding the lock bar away from the locking mechanism in a combination or key padlock. The process looks like it would take some work to master, and combination locks seem to be easier as they only grab on one side of the lock bar. But give yourself some time and practice and you could entertain people at the family holiday party if nothing else.
