After lunch, when I came back to my bicycle, my 10mm Avenir combination coil lock won't open. A bike shop sold me some oil, but that didn't help.
So now my bicycle is stuck 4-miles from my house and I need to cut off the lock.
Local bike shops weren't able to provide this service and a local locksmith wants over $100 to cut the lock. So I have to figure out my own solution.
I don't want to go out and purchase multiple expensive tools and perform trial and error to see what works. I need advice from people who've actually cut coil locks from bicycles. I constantly hear how easy it is for a thief to snap off one of these things. Somehow I imagine, its more complicated for an amateur to actually remove these locks.
What tool should I buy from a hardware store to remove my lock?
Please also share any techniques as well.
