    Default Ever see those videos of Cops and/or Firefighters cutting locks off protestors?

    Who needs a "Master Key" or a whizzer when they use a Kryptonite bike lock...

    Anyway, both companies are now getting sued for a minor flaw in their bike lock design that allows you to open them with a Bic pen...something that was first published in English bicycling magazines in December, 1992...

    Wink

    True but the whizzer can throw sparks and burn them somewhat, making them possibly thing twice before trying that stunt again.

    These devices usually have a means that the protestor can unlock themselves fairly easily. Usually its just a simple carabiner inside which the protestor can open with his fingers. If you can get them to unlock it its a lot easier.

    Here's an idea... If tasked with removing the locks try pouring an "experimental lock disolver" into the device which "should not affect your skin". The solvent is veggie oil with OC (pepper spray) mixed in. About 5 minutes after skin contact it will begin to feel warm and tingly. When asked if sure it didn't affect skin "Well, the website we got the receipe from said it was safe, why?" Hehehe
