Some kind of angle grinder with a cut off wheel.

More seriously, if this article is the style lock you are referring to, it has some good info.

At work I have the FDNY guide to forcible entry, which includes a nice section on defeating locks, but I won't be back there for another 3 days. Hopefully you'll be in by then haha. We don't see too many hockey puck style locks, so I don't remember exactly how we get through them (though I would use either the rotary saw or a hydraulic cutter or spreader depending on circumstances.) I also have the advantage of not having to worry about destroying the door if I need in haha.

Canned air (computer cleaner) upside down to freeze it, hammer to break it. Otherwise an angle grinder will make quick work of it.

I was helping my brother move stuff from a storage unit and he forgot the keys- I used a set of standard bolt cutters. I just has to chew through the disk until I could get the jaws on the hasp. Took about 1 minute.

The harbor freight angle grinders are one of the best tools they sell. Powerful and cheap. They are often on sale for $15. They will make short work of any hanging type lock.



ETA: pick up a pair of safety glasses when you buy it. I hate seeing people run stuff like that without them.

Borrow a drill from a buddy, then just drill out the brass keyway pins & pop it open.

It'll only cost about 5 bucks to find out.

UHaul makes you buy locks now?

No way to fit a standard shackle lock to their hardware?

I had rented a storage unit a year or so ago and they required cylinder locks due to the way the doors were made. Hate that crap; it's a pretty transparent attempt to squeeze the customer by making them buy a lock they'll likely not have already. Oh, and by the way, we sell them right here!
If I was King of the World, things would be different.

And, then he says, well, I think we're at the wrong house!

Just borrow a saw-z-all & make a new door.

Pick it.

Remember to maintain tension while picking.


If it is a masterlock, it will be easy to open.

If it's those stainless sheet metal round locks you can take a 3/8 drill and bore right through the center of the keyhole with a cordless drill. It takes a few seconds. It's that easy.

cordless rotozip worked fine and revealed that a certain point of it would easily have been cut with a bolt cutter

nope not shatter, the head has a springy twist thing, that releases if there is any lateral pressure on the disc
