If You Have A Zip Tie, You Can Pop Open Just About Any Cheap Lock — Scary

NOVEMBER 15, 2015  —  By Joe Welkie

When you want to keep your valuables safe, you secure them to ensure that a robber can't just walk up and steal them. So you go out and pick up a lock from a hardware store, right? Finally, you can go to bed at night with the impression that your valuables are safe.

Well, not so fast.

After you see these videos, you'll throw out your lock and go buy a more heavy-duty one because apparently it's pretty easy to break these bad boys open.

All it takes is a zip tie...


Or a cat food can lid...


Even a bamboo skewer works!


These locks were so easily picked that I might as well not lock up anything I own! Come one, come all, robbers -- steal my stuff!
