AFTER DRILLING & SAWING LOCK, WHAT NEXT?
November 11, 2005
Back to questions
Help, I have drilled out the
lock and tried to spread it with a car scissor jack, no
luck. It laughed at the large hacksaw blade. Any suggestions?
You certainly seem like a resourceful
fellow, Rob. Any dynamite in the house?
Normally Id recommend that
you try to pick the lock with the barrel of a cheap ballpoint
pen, but it appears your drill has scotched that option.
Thieves have tools you havent
tried, but Ive a policy not to publicize those. That,
I regret to report, leaves you with the obvious solution:
To choose a locksmith, call around.
Describe the lock and get prices. It will go more cheaply
for you if you can bring the lock to thembut if you
dont have that luxury, make sure the prices you get
include the cost for them to come to your lock.
