While our team offers services such as toolbox unlocking, we still want to provide you with some educational information in case you’re ever looking to unlock your keyless toolbox and you don’t have time to give our team a call. There are so many different ways to unlock a locked toolbox, but these are the 5 most common ways to get a locked toolbox open without a key…
5 ways to open a locked toolbox without a key:
1. New key
The most common way people get locked toolboxes open is by simply getting a new key made. Whether your key snapped and broke or you completely lost it, this is the easiest and most simple solution. If you need a new key for a locked toolbox, give the team at QuickPro Locksmith a call today – we can get a new key made for you in no time!
When it comes to opening a locked toolbox, there are a couple of different ways to do it through manipulation. If your toolbox is locked with a padlock, our team can open them with shims. If you’re doing it yourself, you can make one out of a soda can. If your toolbox has more of a filing cabinet lock, you can find a thin metal tool that you can insert the metal tool, jiggle it around inside, and continuously rotate it inside so you can get to lock open.
3. Pick the lock
Coming in as one of the most simple and easiest solutions, you can pick the lock to your locked toolbox. Gather a tension-picking tool, insert it into your lock, and rotate it inside so you can pick the lock. This may not work right away, so just keep on trying! If you can’t pick the lock, give QuickPro Locksmith a call!
While drilling is a much more destructive method, sometimes it’s necessary. If you choose to go this route, you will have to drill the lock to get it unlocked, but you won’t be able to use it after – you’ll have to replace it. There’s no special method to drilling a lock – start drilling with a larger bit and continue to get larger and larger.
This route should always be a last resort. Prying open your toolbox means putting in some sort of crowbar and prying the box open. This is going to cause damage to your toolbox, so if you have to resort to this method, always give QuickPro Locksmith a call first! Our talented locksmiths are available at any time.
