Why didn't they just try a BIC pen? http://www.engadget.com/2004/09/14/kryptonite-evolution-2000-u-lock-hacked-by-a-bic-pen/

Oh dear! I liked the part where the narrator suggests he should become a U-lock salesman!


@ Ross
Try not to be such a knob. Kryptonite hasn't used those keys for nearly a decade. You're the kind of guy who'd bad mouth Ford because of the Pinto.


Even with the better key mechanism, the lock itself is normally the weakest link, due to the moving parts. Other methods of attacking the lock could be drilling, though that may be a bit more dangerous to attempt.

Oh my! .... What's the brand of THAT lock? I want one!!! If I ever loose the keys I always keep a grinder handy :-)


Ha! I feel re-assured about the safety of my u-lock. I once had to clean out a student bike room of abandoned bicycles, and I can tell you that bic pens don't work. A car jack does, but I wouldn't recommend it in this case, lol!
