  • Hockey Puck Locks

    Good afternoon everybody. I am currently attending the SC Fire Academy, and we recently discussed hockey puck locks, and how to get through them on commercial businesses, storage areas, or commercial vehicles. I was trying to find any photographs that you may have of a hockey puck lock, after being broken with a "hockey puck lock breaker". From what it looks like, this hockey puck lock breaker is nothing more than a pipe wrench with an extended handle for leverage. If anyone has photos of one of these forms of locks after it has been broken, I would appreciate it if you sent it to my [email protected] This photo will be forwarded to the SCFA staff, and likely used for training purposes. Thanks alot...R

    unless I am mistaken, while not what you are looking for per se, the duckbill tool should allow you to break the hockey puck locks. here is a picture of what one looks like
    If my basic HazMat training has taught me nothing else, it's that if you see a glowing green monkey running away from something, follow that monkey!

      Sorry Doc, but the duck bill, while one of the best tools I've ever used on a shackle lock, is not good for the American 2000. The Pipe wrench and cheater bar will work, but tends to damage the locking pins or the track for a roll down type door to the point of making opening more diffcut or impossible.

      A K-12 with a metal blade does the trick if you make the cut about 2/3s to 3/4 up from the key way, you'll cut the pin and the lock in half for easy removal. See below pictures with a red cut line:

          While on topic. If the hockey puck lock is shielded or Boxed in, try cutting the gate track (angle iron) about 10 inches above and below the lock, then use the fork of the Haligan to grab the angle iron and bend the track away from the building, pulling the lock and pin with it. I would choose the pipe wrench as a last resort...it isnt that easy to do.

            I'm with Matty on this, cutting the track works very well for the shielded locks, which are more and more prevalent.

                229 has the answer, the only time the pipe wrench will work is if everything is heavy duty and installed correctly. The assembly will fail at the weakest link and if not put together well it won't be the lock.
                I've seen the American 2000 on a regular hasp and it just broke the hasp preventing us from opening up quickly. Use the FE saw or a torch.

                  We use Artie's method because our wheel saw is HUGE.Never seen anyone effectively pry/force one of these off.We cut 'em. T.C.

                    Thanks fellas

                    I appreciate the info and the photo. We have our practical test on Monday for forcible entry, so I wanted to make sure I had all of the methods covered. Have a great Thanksgiving!

                      A quick note on using a torch:

                      Cutting the lock in half is not needed. Simply burn a hole through the lock and pin and pull it straight off.

                      Red dot indicates approximate torch point:

                        Artie, have you been spending time spying "across the floor" again at the REAL firefighters? Teasing, and happy turkey, to the man with all the answers.

                            Is theft of hockey pucks that prevalent that they had to create a special lock for them?
