    So much for Puck Locks!!!!!

    I can only say wow!
    My van was stripped clean, pucks did not stop them.
    I lost everything I owned in the 2 hrs I was away from the truck.
    I didn't think the puck locks could be defeated without cutting it off.
    Anyone else share my fate?

    Johnny B had that happen to him.
    All you can do is slow them down and hope that they go for easier pickings.

    Not sure if they drilled, or bumped it?
    Puck was not found.

    hmmmm .... Im gonna grab some I keep under the seat of my truck .... their just backups being I went to some special master locks that are made so you can't get cutters on the bar. I thinke their better then pucks

    I tried a trick with a paper clip one time with a certain type of lock ... was shocked it worked.

    Let me try it and I will be back ...... out to the truck

    Man, I thought those locks were bomb proof. Figures some low life POS would figure out a way to break one open. Im paranoid as it gets when it comes to my truck getting hit. I got hit 6 years ago and lost 2K in tools during a 20 minute lunch break. I fear my luck is running out with the economy in the crapper. I do what I can to help lesson the blow by having several boxes that I can lock to atleast slow a thief down once they make entry. If I get a van I would probablly bolt several individual tool boxes to the floor and put padlocks on them, and keep my high dollar stuff in there. Then keep some junk tools by the back door hoping that may be enough for them to buy their drugs. Some of the tools stolen in my hit were passed down to me from my dad that his dad had given to him. You cant replace s*** like that.

    Yep but they took the hole truck and striped it at their convenience

    And the new one I heard (about side van doors) was nuts but probably true

    Ok I tried it, It didn't work.

    Light paper clips are too light of a material , big paper clips are too thick.

    I'm guessing someone made a clip like device of spring steel being your turning more weight.

    I opened a small safety box lock that my brother lost the key in his store . I was shocked it worked.

    Girlfriend was just telling me today about some new way people are breaking into house locks they are showing on u tube ....... think I better go look at that. Something to do with hitting some kind of key with a hammer

    Thats where I found the paper clip trick

    One question , were your puck locks Master locks , the one I just tried is a master lock #40 ......... now I'm guessing you probably don't remember . I didn't know which one I had till I just looked.

    Guess I better start locking all the lockes on the utility boxes besides the bar locking them all at once

    YIKES ..... ok TOPTECH ya want to see how they probably did it.

    Go to u tube and type in open master lock, Or any other name of a lock you have. It tells how to do it and even where to buy the tools

    If you do the master lock one it shows a video of 3 locks being open. One is the master lock #40 puck I keep as spares , regular master lock and a hard to cut security lock ..... pretty much covers the masterlock styles.

    Anyone know if the internal locking bars are worth it?

    Not sure since they just steal the whole truck now
