Master Lock-Lost Key

I cant find the keys to my trailer and coupler. I have a felling theyve been locked inside the trailer.

I need ideas how to cut the lock off. A hack saw is useless. I dont have a grinder

Anyone have MacGyvers phone number?

tension bar and rake (pick set).

Short of that, you can sometimes get 'smiliar' keys to work if you use the same raking/tension principles.

Possibly a carbon cutting disc.

Freon(sp) inserted into the lock area then a very large sleage hammer to the end of it. It depends on the type you have though.

uhm...depending on the master lock model...u can actually go to a hardware store and look for the same model and digits on the bottom of the lock...seeing that they mas produce the lock...u might be able to get it open by buying a same # matching lock...but also depends on how old the lock is if its sstill being sold....

another option...is call a locksmith...they can pick it as long as u can prove the trailer is yours....and put new lock on it if u can not find keys inside it...should not cost more then 65 bucks...

...plus my gf was with me saying "omg slow down, slow down" and I was thinking "Lose annoying squalk box in passenger seat, afford more mods and have less weight in the car and on the back of the bike"...so i dumped her and I'm single again as usual...HERE KITTY KITTY!!!

I'm a pro at this.

Powerdrill + expensive hard drill bit + lock cylinder = busted. I used to break a lot of masters. Get a drill bit that's about 1/3 the size of the cylinder and go at it. It takes about 30 minutes, but it's better than paying $100 to a locksmith. Since it's on the trailer it will be a pain to hold onto and drill at the same time, just be really careful. I used to put the locks in a vice so I didn't have to worry about that. The only problem is that the whole lock will get burning hot...get an oven mitt..

Another option is the car jack method, if you have one strong enough and the lock is low enough to the ground. Just drape a towel over the lock once you have the jack set tight under it...the lock is going to go flying when it breaks. This is probably not a good idea if the lock is mounted to something weaker than it, because it will tear off whatever it is attached to before the lock breaks.

A hacksaw will work, and it's usually the quickest way. Wrap a lot of electrical tape around one side of the loop, about a millimeter away from where the loop goes into the lock. This will be your guide for the saw. Take the blade and saw through a bar of soap to lube the blade, then start cutting. You can get through the lock in about 5 minutes. You just have to make sure you cut the side that isn't attached to the lock. Once you cut the right side, the other side will spin open. If you cut the wrong side...sometimes nothing happens and you have to do the other side.

60% of the time, it works every time.

Screw the hack saw. How about a power saw. I got a nice Dewalt in the garage. That will make quick work of the lock problem.
