    What’s the best way to remove a coin door lock without the key? Thx

    #3 4 months ago

    Yeah I figured as much, just wondering if there is a step by step guide w/ pics of some sort, so I don’t jack up the coin box door. Thx

    Quoted from Mitch:

    Drilling doesnt hurt the coin door at all. It's very very easy.
    Nice sharp 1/2 inch drill bit right down the center of lock. Takes 15 seconds.

    Got it, but do I just drill till the lock gives or do I use a screw driver after I “gap” a hole in the key hole? Never did it before and I don’t want to jack up the surroundings of the machine. Thanks

    Quoted from cosmokramer:

    Put a trash can under the coin door to catch the metal shavings and drill it...its easy and any takes a minute

    Great advice. No mess. Thanks everyone. I got it done without a hassle. I could have done it blindly, but i figured pinside advice would make things smarter not harder. 9906DB4D-A1E5-4649-A698-C6C0996D27D8 (resized).jpeg7CA3399F-6A77-4B18-99B0-CE1E68E9C8FB (resized).jpegA1698F77-B795-40AB-ADD0-99A539E3457E (resized).jpeg
