I have a padlock stuck on a latch like this

Just ordered a pair of bolt cutters. If they cant cut through the padlock can I just cut through the latch where I've marked in red ? ...(And replace the whole latch)

Just beat it with a hammer if you don’t have bolt cutters, or drill out the lock. A set up like this is so weak you shouldn’t need to buy anything extra

You should invest in a sawzall and an angle grinder. You can improve profits by stealing their cats on the way out.

I don't want to chip the wood on the door

This is the absolute worst way to do it.

>> No.2621961

Why would I need an angle grinder for such a small job

>> No.2621967

Because there's much more you can do with it besides steal bikes, and if you hunt around you can get a decent battery powered one for like $100 sometimes.

>> No.2621969

But I don't need large expensive tools or having to waste time "finding a bargain" you pretentious moron

Yet no one can answer a simple question whether you can cut the latch

Instead you try to be funny meme tryhard time waster

So? Literally said I'm a clueless noob who doesnt do DIY at all. But you're getting excited and high and mighty because I "don't own tools" and asked an innocent question LOL

Give me lever long enough, and a fulcrum on which to place it and I will unseize any padlock.

Seems you're the moron, you asked a question that even the tiniest modicum of common sense should have answered for you.

this is /diy/. it's filled with methead boomers and reddit troons who crave conflict

if you own a pipe wrench you can try this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g70k-7rKFhY

>> No.2622860

Thanks, I do have a wrench but I fear if I do this it'll rip the latch off the wooden fence door and splinter it
