Forcible Entry - Padlocks Edition

Check out this cool video in which Firefighter are testing to see just how easy (and some to my surprise hard) it is to bust open Master padlocks

Tough locks but it seems sometimes they were attacking in a direction that played to the lock's strengths. If you can get a tool inside the shackle, a long handle with a twisting action might be more effective.

Indeed.

Or a pipe wrench around the body then rotated. I noticed they were mostly using the newer Master padlocks with the hexagonal boron alloy shackles and with a thin metal "skin" around the body of the padlock. I wouldn't think that skin would add too much protection against twisting the body apart with a wrench, but I guess I won't know until it's tried.

I'm kind of surprised we haven't seen a version of The Irons or a Halligan bar with a cutout in a flat area of strong steel, to accomodate the body of an average padlock so you can slide it around the body of the lock and twist. Wouldn't run the same risk of slipping off the lock that you can get with a pipe wrench. Maybe there is too much variety in padlock sizes for there to be a useful enough average hole size to make a tool like that universal enough.
