How To: Bust Open a MasterLock Using Only a Small Hammer

By: | December 3rd, 2015


We’re reviving the sometimes forgotten “How To” section of Industry Tap.

What better place to start than with a simple tutorial on breaking open a MasterLock using merely a small hammer.

A recent YouTube video shows that all it takes to bust open a MasterLock is a bit of pressure on one side and a few hits with a hammer on the other, and it breaks loose easier than MasterLock owners would probably like.

Don’t have a hammer?

Use a screwdriver, wrench, or any other household device you have lying around that can apply a bit of force when tapping the lock and you’re good to go.

I advise using this technique to open locks you may have lost the key to and not for any criminal activity. You’ve been warned!
