How do I open a Kryptonite lock?kryptonite lock

Solution number 1 – If you registered your lock, call or write Kryptonite for a new key.  Or call a local locksmith, they should be able to pick and re-key the lock for you.

Solution number 2 – Get a car jack and jack it apart. Careful, otherwise it is very possible that you’ll damage the bike.

Solution number 3 – Use a cut-off wheel in a Dremel tool to cut the lock at the hole in the shackle (where there is the least to cut).

Solution number 4 – If it doesn’t have the newer brass jacket, peel back the plastic coating on the key end, drill out the pin that holds in the cylinder, remove the cylinder, open.

Solution number 5 – Chill the metal of the “U” with liquid Nitrogen or Freon, smash with hammer.  While this is a “well known” method, it may be an urban legend.
