I have a padlock stuck on a latch like this

Just ordered a pair of bolt cutters. If they cant cut through the padlock can I just cut through the latch where I've marked in red ? ...(And replace the whole latch)

Just beat it with a hammer if you don’t have bolt cutters, or drill out the lock. A set up like this is so weak you shouldn’t need to buy anything extra

>>2621887
thanks for stopping by
make sure to swing by the gift shop on your way back out to /lgbt/

You should invest in a sawzall and an angle grinder. You can improve profits by stealing their cats on the way out.

I don't want to chip the wood on the door

I'm trying to save money by buying the cheapest tools I can to get the job done

>I don't have a drill
You might not like it but this is peak DIY looks like.

Summer shitposting season has arrived.
>>
>>2621943
I don't

This is the absolute worst way to do it.
>>
>>2621952
Why would I need an angle grinder for such a small job
>>
>>2621961
Because there's much more you can do with it besides steal bikes, and if you hunt around you can get a decent battery powered one for like $100 sometimes.
>>
>>2621967
But I don't need large expensive tools or having to waste time "finding a bargain" you pretentious moron
>>
>>2621943
I did say noob here I don't do DIY I have a screwdriver and a hammer and tape
>>
>>2621857
Let me youtube that for you
>jewtube.com/results?search_query=how+to+open+a+padlock

No the problem is reduced to filtering out the pajeet fiverr spam videos from the good advice.

Yet no one can answer a simple question whether you can cut the latch

Instead you try to be funny meme tryhard time waster

Reddit boy
>>
>>2622073
we can't? or we won't?
>>
>>2622079
Either way you're cringe tryhards

>Muh heckin tool collection

So? Literally said I'm a clueless noob who doesnt do DIY at all. But you're getting excited and high and mighty because I "don't own tools" and asked an innocent question LOL
>>
>>2622067
Give me lever long enough, and a fulcrum on which to place it and I will unseize any padlock.
>>
>>2622067
>calls someone else a moron
>has to come on here and legitimately ask other people if he can cut through the tab on the hasp to open it
Seems you're the moron, you asked a question that even the tiniest modicum of common sense should have answered for you.
>>
>>2622080
this is /diy/. it's filled with methead boomers and reddit troons who crave conflict

if you own a pipe wrench you can try this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g70k-7rKFhY

>>2622429
Thanks, I do have a wrench but I fear if I do this it'll rip the latch off the wooden fence door and splinter it
