You drive it off! You just put the FWD on and slowly pull away the clamp bends and falls off. It takes about three seconds with an SAS and about twenty with a Bulldog. Failing that theres other waysfalls off. Angle grinders also do a good job.
I am not a thief far from it but when you work in a boat yard to sometimes need to free Clamps that have had the keys lost
