How To Open A Lock With A Nut Wrench

Although it’s never cool to steal or snoop, I bet there’s been a time in your life when you’ve come face to face with a padlock that you can’t open. Maybe you lost the keys to your bike lock or found and old trunk in the basement with a lock on it, whatever the reason it’s probably happened to you.

In a useful video, YouTuber MrGear demonstrates how to open a padlock using two nut wrenches. Chances are you have at least one of these laying around your house and if not they can be purchased at your local hardware store. It’s worth watching. You never know when life will throw you one of those curveballs. 

All you need to do is place the wrenches on either side of the metal loop and pry them apart in the opposite direction. Within seconds the lock should pop open. This handy trick relies on the pressure that builds up between your hands and the wrenches. You don’t even have to be super strong for it to work. 

This can come in handy if you forgot the combination of your lock at school, or perhaps someone you know put a padlock on the sweets box. Check out the full video on the next page to see how it’s done.
