What you need to break the lock?
You will need the following things to break the lock.
A drill driver is ideal for drilling a hole in plastic, wood, and metal materials. You can move the drill in clockwise and anti-clockwise directions.
If you want to control the amount of power to transfer to the screws, you can select a drill driver with a clutch; you will identify the power the drill driver needs to make a desired size of the hole. If you need to create a small hole, you don’t need high power.
The drill bit is essential to protect from heating up and snapping. The type of drill bit you need depends on the drill material. If you don’t know the type of metal your lock is made up of, you can choose a high-speed steel drill because it is ideal for ferrous, non-ferrous materials, and carbon steel.
If the lock covering is iron or steel, you can use a cobalt bit. But if it is a copper and zinc material, you can choose a carbide bit. When choosing the size of the bit for metals, it must have the same size as the hole you will create.
Middle Smack Tool and Hammer
A center punch is a metal rock with a sharp point. It is useful in helping with drilling to protect the drill from bending. You can use a center punch that is thinner and sharper than other types. It makes drilling easy and smooth by creating deeper holes.
You will need a hammer to use this middle smack tool. Please ensure that you use the flat face of the hammer as you make a blow to the center punch. You can also use a small hammer if you don’t have a big hammer.
The pick tool is the best kit because it comes with hooks. Pick tools are normally used for automotive maintenance, especially if you need to clean channels and position some wires. They are also thin enough to prick into holes.
You can invent a metal paperclip tool if you don’t have a pick. It must be thin to fit into the hole. Additionally, it must be sturdy so that it won’t break. Straighten it using a pair of pliers so that you can use it as a pick tool. If you don’t have a paper clip, you can also use a thin metal wire. It must be thin enough to fit into the hole and sturdy so that it won’t bend.
Safety glasses are essential to wear as preventive measures. If you are not wearing safety glasses while drilling, it can cause an eye injury. Fit these googles tightly to the eyes and facial area to protect them from impact, dust, splashes, and vapor.
There are two types of safety glasses you can choose from.
- Comfortable to use
- Hole to flow air
Non Vented googles
- No holes
- Higher level of protection
If you don’t own safety glasses, you can also use face shields. While working with fire objects use of polycarbonate material is preferred because they are protective eyewear to fit your face.
