Removing a security lock

Going to try to explain this the best I can until I can go and get some photos' of the lock.
I need to get the lock off the bolt to replace the bar that was fitted as an extra support for the engine.
It's a cylinder (alloy?) with a flush cap. Looks like the key goes into a cut out between the cap and the cylinder body. Has a black rubber cap if that helps.

Are these like the classic alloy wheel locks and every key sold fits ever lock? Or am I going to have to cut it off?
Will get some photos' as soon as I get time to go up to the RIB (really wish I'd dug my heels in over it living in the front garden )

I have one of these and they are good locks.

You will need to drill the lock barrel to get it off and thats not going to be fun.

get the head off the bolt on the other side with careful use of a grinder .. or I could burn it off with no adverse effects to alloy or paint, being a dab hand with the gas and air

I'd go with the cut the head off the bolt on the other side & then replace the whole lot. Got to be easier than cutting through the lock ( and bolt inside it ) .

I'm going to check I haven't lost the keys to mine ( paranoia again ! )

Jon, this is a ten minute job, don't ask how I know

Turn the whole lock until you can get an electric drill pointing at the brass insert which the key would normally go into. Select a suitable size drill for the hole and give the brass insert maximum violence. Pick out any brass pieces as necessary and use a screwdriver or chisel to force the end off. You can then get a socket on the end of the bolt head or nut depending which way round the bolt has been fitted.

The brass insert is a normal glass key press one or they are a 5 from Towsure so you can reuse the lock again cheaply enough.

Pete

Pete - you must be getting slow - 10 minutes is too long, there is a vague chance that the police could turn up in that time...
