- Cutting through bike locks – where to start?
My dearly beloved has lost the key to her bike lock, which is locked to her bike….
It’s a cheapo halfords cable / padlock combo, is it going to be easiest to hacksaw the padlock or the cable? I’m thinking the later but guidance welcome before the swearing begins

Any chance of a pic? There’s not a cable lock in the world that’s any damn good but some are better than others. When my brother lost the key to his cable lock, a nice security guard from his office came and cut it free with a pair of good quality kitchen scissors 😆
Cutting wheel or grinder will be the absolute easiest option, since it’ll take out any cable with minimal fuss. Bolt cutters might just crush the cable and jam up, that’s one way they sometimes do well in “tests”, using unsuitable tools.Posted 4 years ago
