Apologies! Didn't realise you were in the southern hemisphere - only wish I could!!

Took a couple of pics of one I have on the shelf for you. You can see the small lug on the top, that will obviously need to be demolished before the lock will come out.

Reckon if you start with a small drill, in the small notch where the lug on the key would fit and work up to an 8mm or so, it should give way. Good luck!

Perhaps a controversial post coming up but those that have read mine before know its par or the course

I always try to shy away from discussions such as this offering advice on what is effectively overcoming an anti-theft device! I mean, how do you know its even the OP's in the first place, yet its not stopped people advising how to break into it :whistling

No offence OP

Everyone likes a happy ending

Last night I got a text at work saying she had been sorting through my old suits and found 380 in one of the pockets. Blinding because I haven't been in Euroland for over 6 years.

Then this morning, she was feeling a little guilty so it was easy to persuade her to perform a pleasurably personal penance

Then an hour later, she walks in the kitchen with something dangling form her finger saying "Are these what you're looking for ?"

So no drilling, no new lock purchase, no derision from the neighbours.

And yes I will be buying a lottery ticket today and yes it actually is my birthday today.

Thanks to all the contributors and particularly TG. There'll always be a cold tinnie for you...

Happy birthday.
Hope nobody's drilled out your lock and pinched your boat while Mrs Whiteshoes was doing her penance.

I did it a few years ago for a forum member named Whiteshooz give him a call he might remember how I did it

Lucky boy, my wife's dropped me in it a couple of times and I've never managed to get her to clean the boat

Hi Stu,

Had forgotten about that. I should have asked you to gather up your bits and come over !


Planning to get married in Vegas next May so maybe that's when the penance will stop. Hope not




Thomas, Good luck with getting the missus to "clean your boat". Never heard it called that before......
