Consumer Videos: Keys and Locks

Many of us must have experienced having lost or forgotten our keys, so how do you enter your house then? Call a locksmith? Well, that’s a natural reaction if you don’t have duplicates; then again, worry not as there are ways to open your locks with some simple items.

Here’s a few of them..

Bobby Pin: Apply minimum torque to the tension wrench, insert the bobby pin into the key way, make use of a vibrating motion, or scrubbing over the pins, after a few seconds, try to apply greater force to the tension wrench to turn the plug. If the pins do not set after several seconds, release the tension wrench and do it again. (szxxxx)

For this lock, a paper clip was used. And as we can see, it’s all about feeling and pushing ’em up. Basically the same principles really.

In the end, it would be good to know how keys are copied and made.. yes, not just for ’emergency’ purposes but for your safety as well.
