How to Break a Bicycle Lock

Did you lose the keys to your bike lock? Learn many different ways you can free your bicycle.

The first way is to use a sledgehammer. Believe it or not, most locks can be broken with only a few smacks of a hammer. There is usually a fracture point on the lock which will snap it fast.

Liquid nitrogen is extremely cold and it will freeze the lock way below freezing, making it easy to shatter. It is tricky to get ahold of and you may need to get some from a laboratory. Simply freezing the lock with snow will not work. After you let the liquid nitrogen do its' magic you can simply smack the bicycle lock with a hammer and it will crack.

Power drills are effective on breaking some bicycle locks, especially with those that have pin grooves.

Hacksaws work surprisingly well on steel locks and you can just cut through the chain or bar as opposed to taking apart the lock itself.

If the bicycle lock is cheap, then simply kicking it hard may work, but this can take some finesse and will not work with more expensive versions.

Another easy way to break a bicycle lock is to simply melt it. For this you will need thermite, which is used to weld railroad ties. It will take aluminum shavings and rust (iron oxide) mixed together in a putty which is then lit with a magnesium starter strip and a blowtorch. Since this concoction burns at over 2500 degrees you would need to be careful or it will melt your whole bike, and it will probably go through the pavement beneath it, so safety first.

When all else fails, be creative. There are many ways to break a bicycle lock, but just make sure it is not someone else's property. You can get in serious trouble for stealing someone else's bike.
