In a clip which has garnered over 1 million views, YouTube user "bosnianbill" reveals how simple it is to open up a case hard Master Lock with just a plastic zip tie. He took a file on his pocket knife and cut some small grooves to get the Master Lock open, in a video that has gone viral.
He also went on to say that one of his "lock-picking friends" also was able to open up a Master Lock with a bamboo BBQ skewer, a small hammer, among other things -- even a dried chicken bone.
The YouTuber is encouraging viewers to submit their own "tricks" for popping open Master Locks, even suggesting -- get this -- a bird's feather.
I'm sure thieves everywhere are salivating at the bits after this discovery.
Do you believe this to be true? Have you tried and succeeded? What did you use?
