How to Open a Padlock with a Coke Can
You have to see this to believe it, it is possible to open any padlock with a coke can… well, any can if you can’t find a coke can.
I want to start off by saying please don’t take this knowledge and use it to gain entry or to do illegal things, use this knowledge only if you need to, like say for example you lose YOUR keys to your shed or lockup and need to get in without using bolt cutters.
itstactical.com shows us step by step instructions how to make the shims needed to open the padlock, and if I am honest, this little hack could come in so handy in a SHTF situation.
This article is not new and has been floating around the internet for a while now, the general consensus is that you need a coke can to do this but obviously that is not true, any can would suffice.
I tried to do this with my brother and couldn’t manage it but on the videos I have seen, people can open a padlock in seconds with just a soda can. I would recommend you try this when you have time because if you have the problems I did you will just get mad and take your frustration out on your padlock with a hammer 😛
You can open pretty much any padlock, even combination locks, that’s a good thing because more and more of us are actually using them now. Check out the full tutorial in the link below, if you manage to open a lock let us know on our Facebook page 🙂
