How is it locked? Where is the lock? Does it look sturdy or flimsy?
Usually the locks on computer cases aren't really bombproof, so you should be able to open/destroy it yourself.
Can you post a picture of the keyhole? It might be time to get creative with a hair-grip or similar!!
you should be able to pick the lock- that thing probably only has 2 tumblers XD
+1 it shouldn't be too hard, and it doesn't exactly matter if you damage the inside a little as its not going to be used for proper security.
It's the standard Chieftec lock they put on all their cases.
Sorry double post.
Do you know somebody with a Chieftec case? In that case you could propably just borrow the key.
I had a big bunch of chieftec keys, I can't find them now... :|
I'll have a rummage round, if I find 'em you're more than welcome to one.
Pick it with a hair slide, or just unscrew it from the back and remove the barrel?
Drill it out?
time to get the drill out
and follow some guides
You could always get a team together to help you.
You will need at least one each of the following:
Cultured looking leader guy with salt-and-pepper hair and a nickname
Black guy with an eccentric personality who is an explosive effort
Nerdy looking computer hacker guy
Handsome daredevil type guy who drives a BMW very very fast
Beautiful blonde girl who likes to live on the edge
Arrogant guy with a british accent
Small gymnist type guy with amazing atheletic abilities.
Once you have all of those people, you need to design an elaborate plan to break the lock. I suggest that it involve some sort of high speed car chase through the drainage canals in Los Angeles. You'll also need the gymnist guy to curl up into a ball and enter the case through the 80mm fan hole, to work it on the inside. The computer hacker needs to hack the internet around the computer, and duplicate it to a remote location. The black guy (I recommend Don Cheadle) must plant explosives on the lock. The british guy must say "bloody" at every opportunity. Have the leader type guy have a strict set of criminal 'rules' that he follows. Then fall in love with the girl while your buddies open the case for you.
I count 2 different films there, but I like the idea, I think it could work!
Have you contacted Chieftec to see if they'd be able to send you a key?
