    Default anyone know how to crack/pick an american combination lock?

    the masterlock methods don't work, and the only one i can find is popping off the back which is not an option. this is important.

    Sometimes combo locks have a small keyhole at the bottom; if it does, this is pickable. Otherwise, I'm not knowledgeable.

    That hole is usually way too small for typical lock picking tools.

    You need to get the back off so you can see the slotted discs and line them up by spinning the knob. I've never heard of popping or prying them off. Your best bet is a Dremmel with a reinforced cut-off wheel (or a diamond tipped wheel if you're lucky). They can cut through a metal surface at a perpendicular angle and would allow you to cut out the back. You might be able to rent a Dremmel from Home Depot if you don't know anyone who owns one (ask anyone who's a geek or a mechanic). Once you get the old lock off, you'll know the combo and you can replace it with a custom-combo of the same type and set it to the same combo. Nobody would know the difference (make sure you get the same size and color)

    That's about the only way you can do it aside from professional skills which I am guessing you don't have or blowing it off which I wouldn't advise. Trick methods are usually phased out pretty quickly by the manufacturer.

    I kicked downward on one in junior high until the lock shot off the u-bolt and it all hit the floor.

    It's about being elevated above the lock, and being able to kick downward with the heel of your boot at the top of the lock where the u-bolt thing enters into the round lock mechanism.

    It took me about three kicks.

    Uh, well if you don't need to keep the lock intact, I suggest emptying a can of compressed air on it. The freon in the compressed air will freeze the lock. Then smash it with a hammer. And voila... you'll open what it was locking, but you'll have destroyed the lock.

    Any questions, let me know.
