how to break into vending machines EASY

— Posted by Navy Soldier on 11:20 am on Feb. 24, 2002

Yo sup all I got this here online… steal some air-
hardening clay from a craft store. and put it in the annoying little vending machince lock get a deep impression , pull it out then let it dry. now you have a key! :)

This works with most harlys too! :p

— Posted by Hergor on 11:32 am on Feb. 24, 2002

how is that supposed to work?

usually vending machines have pin-tumbler locks that need to be lifted (or pulled down) to match a certain height-pattern for getting the lock’s core-cylinder to turn.

please explain your method further.  :)

I’ve heard this technique before but i think it is a lot harder than it sounds. PLUS i know for a fact that atleast in my area(Florida USA) they have changed the locks so this doesn’t work anymore. They used to be the round things but now have like an hour glass shape and i think double pinned but i haven’t really looked recently. I know a site where u can buy a really reliable round lock picker but i doubt the clay idea would work too well. Anyone ever had success, i would be very interested to know.

I have heard of many methods for braking into vending machines. I’ve heard about the computer store one but rationally most of the time it will not work due to the fact that all the old pc’s have a lock and all computer store’s now do not carry them, and they would have 2 order them. I highly doubt that the air hardening clay would work but fourtunetly I have vending machine keys. You can easily buy some keys off e-bay (www.ebay.com) for a measly five dollars. Just type in vending machine keys.

Thanx dude I just orderd some!

— Posted by qube on 3:43 pm on Feb. 24, 2002

If this works it could work – Unplug the machine from the wall, then break into it wiv a screwdriver or better tool, coz its unplugged no alarm goes off, unless they have battery alarms to avoid such a situation.

— Posted by Darkie on 4:08 pm on Feb. 24, 2002

Are you sure the ones on ebay work? I found(on a keychain, don’t know whose) a key that looks like one, will that work? It had notches round the out side of the circle that are diffetent lenghts

If that doesn’t help, go to http://members.aol.com/lawaskadotcom/key.jpg.
I just took that picture and I outlined where the grooves are because it’s blurry.

SO, these different sized grooves lead me to believe that the locks act like a pin and tumbler lock, where all the pins have to be pushed to the shear line. Or all the pins have to be pushed in all the way individually other wise if one needs to go in farther than the other one, the other one will prevent a rounded sheet of metal from doing that. Does this make sense? Does anyone know how these locks work? Do the ebay keys work? Am I the only one that noticed a change in the locks on the coke and Pepsi machines?

hey just back track to the  clay idea why , do you have to go to a locksmith after that cause clay usually crumbles… or is there some sort of “superclay”?

— Posted by someoneisluke on 1:08 am on Mar. 15, 2002

yeah i agree with him wouldnt the clay crumble ???

— Posted by Jerprob on 8:17 pm on Mar. 15, 2002

the keys do not work…i bought a set off of ebay and tried them on 4 different vending machines….all the keys are different, the key would go in, i would press it down, but it wouldnt turn…..hope this helps anyone and keeps you all from wasting $ like i did

— Posted by loscgk83 on 10:37 pm on Mar. 15, 2002

Why would u want to rip of a vending machine…
…..are u that hungery, if u rip of anything let it be a pay phone or atm machine, i mean come on.

P.S. when ripin of things make sure it worth it [for u ]

— Posted by Darkie on 7:47 am on Mar. 16, 2002

Ok, i did a lot of research on this. The clay idea DOES NT WORK. it was a dumb idea to begin with. The lock is a pin and tumbler lock. Each pin must be pushed into an exact position. They can be under pushed and overpush(clay)makeing it not open. You can buy a pickerfor it but they are expensive and take time, lotsa time and concentration. The easiest thing would really be either to blow the sucker to hell and hope something survives or to jump the coke man.

The topic is called how to break into vending machines easy. How Could You PossIble Break Into A vending Machine Easily. and even after all your hardwork would it even be worth it.

— Posted by ghettopimp70 on 4:01 am on Mar. 24, 2002

Heres how: Step 1- Approach the vending machine late at night and have a car running nearby

                  Step 2- Grab a sledgehammer and slam the motherfucker right through it.

   Why use a sledgehammer and not a brick? Simple. Usually theres a Coke machine next to the vending machine and you can slam it right through the plastic

— Posted by Strobe on 6:48 am on Mar. 24, 2002

enough already with the god damned vending machienes!!!! theres like 300 fucking posts already!! shut the hell up about stealing change and getting free sodas and talk about something thats worth the time you take to type all this shit in

— Posted by Sparky586 on 10:27 am on Mar. 24, 2002

A sledge hammer would not work! I had a friend try it before, matter of fact I had two friends who tried it.  They tried it a bunch of times and it doesn’t work

— Posted by ghettopimp70 on 2:51 pm on Mar. 24, 2002

Then your friends arent strong enough

— Posted by Molitolv Volkov on 10:04 pm on Mar. 24, 2002


if you dont like this the BLOW ME!

— Posted by ghettopimp70 on 10:24 pm on Mar. 24, 2002

How about you try it first. And if youre lucky and dont get your ass busted come back and tell us how its done.

— Posted by johnny 99 on 2:45 am on Mar. 25, 2002

No the clay thing wont work,no the e-bay thing wont work, no unpluggng it won’t work (they have air horns rigged inside) the sledge will work, if you’ve got fifteen minutes to do it. Or You can use a 38 shell casing to impression the lock , but this key will still only work for that vendors machines.

— Posted by Molitolv Volkov on 12:18 pm on Mar. 25, 2002

If your fast enough then do it but if your an idiot then don’t try it.  Big enough truck and a lot of friends that will work. go to one at a car wash then trake the fucker and go beat the fuck out of it. if you want to have fun with it back it up to the side of a bridge and push it off. WHAM money and sodas evrywhere. the watter must be shallow.

— Posted by johnny 99 on 12:39 pm on Mar. 25, 2002

At least around here all the car washes, have video cameras. you would have to disable to get away with  it.

— Posted by Molitolv Volkov on 4:05 pm on Mar. 25, 2002

Damn your car washes suck. Id just locate them all and take em out with spray paint on the lense or beat the fuck out of em. Better yet steal them 2

— Posted by johnny 99 on 4:13 pm on Mar. 25, 2002

Yea, same old thing though. An awfull lot of work just to steal a soda! If I’m gonna mission impossible some place, I want more than a fucking soda pop!

— Posted by Molitolv Volkov on 6:18 pm on Mar. 25, 2002

Yea but the fun of it is the breaking it open. or you could just buy some sodas at wally-world.

then break something else like some jackasses face.

    Y’all are a bunch of retarded mother fuckers. Thee is only one fast way to get in them without a key and I know it. It only takes about thirty seconds but I make about 3 grand a month if y’all would use your damn heads instead of tryin to fuck shit up you’d figure it out damn, and the clay doesn’t work that’s a waste of time and the dumb ass that said steal the clay its only like 2 dollars get a damn job if u have to steal something that cheap you retarded fuck

  • Voxdeus

    Yeah, but still, it’s the principle of the thing, why bother with the hassle of shelling out MY hard earned cash for a damn soda? Sure, I have a job, but should one really have to bother with such things as PAYING when ever one only desires a damn soda? I’m with ghettopimp70 and Molotov Volkov on this one, either
    A) grab a damn sledge, a fast car, and a strong arm, or

    B) grab several strong-arms, a fast truck and haul that bitch off to god knows where to perform the act in private.

  • Lt. Sean Cooney

    You can Use Liquid Nitrogen on Any Lock and it works Great but you didn’t hear that from me, I’ve arrested too many people because they don’t cover the Video Camera or Wear a mask to protect their identity and also they always use their vehicle which also makes it easy, last thing if you Steal an ATM remember it has a GPS installed with a battery in it so drop it in a pool for a dat prior to taking it home or you’ll be caught with the GPS inside of it!

  • not a dumb ass redneck!

    you rednecks are the stupidest people around! there is a easy way to do it but you are to stupid to see it.

  • sk8er girl

  • Mythbuster

    Hey for the vending machine….. Everyone who considers this clay method is reading to many outdated books. Im not a genius but personally If they make it im trying to break it. There are plenty of ideas for the machine and a few smart people should get together to discuss. Number one Pick a machine you need the name and the model usually written on front. two everyone looks at this machine thats part of the team. Different places have different machines but at the same time all of them that hit the US come from the same manufacturers just like ATMs we in the US are gonna have alot of the same brand machines. Dont listen to someone in Europe talking about a device that cracks them cause thats about 149.00 and it wont work here. You ever heard of chinging????????????? Fuck that EMP Device its expensive and it works on some machines but at the same it dont do what you think.. Its all in the Serial number there people and this site is monitored by the manufacturers of these machines so ideas here are gonna work for 5min maybe. the next machine is gonna have a fix to whatever you come up with. quit thinking like criminals to break into something and think like a repair man or manufacturer would to fix an issue and problem is solved. You all must be 15 or something. In that case hook that Mfcker up to your 4 wheel drive and drive down main street drunk as fck with that btch sparking behind you LOL think people dont go to juvi think of Lompoc when you want to commit a crime go to school become a chemist open a farmacy and get fcking rich then move.

    @Lt. Sean Cooney

    @Lt. Sean Cooney
    I love the police see a guy whos just spitting it out either way steal an atm and your probably gonna get caught. Liquid nitro well sure its easy for some people to get. That reminds me once when i was like 14 i was at a pawn shop at 2 am out in the open right down the street from a PD i meen rock distance. I was all suited with a scanner and earbuddies ninja style black suit up to no good. Welding on a Padlock of this Pawn Shop after the Guns And Jewlry it woulda been like 2 min to grab Ks in gold and guns well im talking about the big clips and this state was all 30+ AKs ARs Techs and Glocks and all the good stuff. Heated that lock to glowing and a car drove by bar was closing they stopped reversed (I thought i was f’dd) Back window roled down and some guy through up some hand signal and said whooooooooo rock on) Thank god i moved from LA to a redneck town. Never got the lock off and it was late or i should say early but thats a 14 year old cityboy not knowing what a bolt cutter is. 10.00 LOL
    Long Story Short try this first http://www.devry.com If you still want to be a criminal after 2 years of school and 80.00 an hour then atleast youll be more succesful. No need to hurt people or hook little kids on dope. No one listens and im not a preacher or that old anyway just been there and the Pen tooo… Save yourself the bullshit and educate first now or later youll need to and maybe youll decide being a Loan Manager at wells fargo is more profitable then a vending machine…

  • dlong66

    I thought I had seen some retarded fuckers on the internet but you mother fuckers are not only ignorant but illiterate as well. Most of you write like first graders. I’ll bet most of you dropped out of school in the 6th grade. One genius thinks you can hit a vending machine with a sledge hammer and get in because the front has a plastic cover. Newsflash dumbass that’s just cosmetic, there’s a steel door on the other side of it. And one of you mental midgets mentioned a .38 shell casing to “impression the lock” It’s obvious the idiot doesn’t have a clue what he’s talking about. You don’t just stick a spent shell casing into the lock and magically have a key for it. You actually have to build a lock pick using the shell casing, it’s not the hardest thing in the world, but from what I’ve seen here, I hate to tell you “ghettopimps” and “Lt. wannabe cooney cops” but I don’t think there’s enough i.q. points in this forum to get it done, even if you do then you have to learn how to use it. My advice is before you try to tell someone how to break into anything you might want to learn how to spell first.

  • Azazel

    Look a little bird told me if you break the plastic at the side get u a small box segg box works cutting the side off to make it in to a tray side it in to the gap that the change falls in t put about 1.00 in change in it press the change return button. And there u go u doubled ur money repeat for more$

  • imgonnagetyousucka

    how about shooting the lock area with a 12 gauge slug?or trying to set the thing on fire with gas and black powder.

  • imgonnagetyousucka

    maybe hitting the machine with your truck.

  • imgonnagetyousucka

    maybe sticking your penis in the change slot?

  • imgonnagetyousucka

    maybe call the machine a bitch?

  • truewoodab

    ok you get a cordless drill a hole saw bit big as the round lock and drill around the lock get the plate off and you can open the door takes 5 mins

  • J.

    And no thieves shall have their part in the kingdom of God.
    You may get away with it today but it is appointed for us all to die and then the judgement.
    So break in those of you who have no fear of God and are too lazy to work. We will see who has the last say.
    My advice get a job and get forgiveness through Christ and not in that order in case you die before your first day of ever working

  • J.

    What the heck does God have to do with your lazy but breaking into a machine. @Andrew

  • bandit

    r u serious? How about a pry bar?

  • jakeeroo

    here instead of easily getting caught take crowbar and at the top left hinge work it till it comes loose and pull it out and then pull on that side as hard as you fucking can and remmember that the hinge is one thick rod so you will have to just break the paint and stand on top of the machine

  • Josh

    What about vending machines with a round lock with 6 tiny holes in it. Another fun thing to break into is the arcade games with Wii’s and other fun stuff. An easy way to do it is get a laser pointer that can cut through metal. takes about a few seconds to cut.

  • Nick

    I need contacts that can hook me up with copying keys, tubular lock picks, thin leather gloves, and other assorted tools that could help me take some shortcuts in life.

  • ellopeters

    program a stupid wal mart card repgrogram it to spit money out work on new ones as well its all, codeing………..hmmmmmm goood point late

  • Jaron Morris

    All you need is a saw a pry bar Nd some whrenchs and screw driver

  • Geez man

    Dude, I bought a coke machine for 500$ without a key and got on here to see how to get it open. All I found is a bunch of bullshit wannabe thieves and one bible thumper who has no business searching how to break into a coke machine if he’s such a man of god. Get real j. You’re just as big of a dumbass as the rest of us. The only logical way to get the door open is to drill the lock out, replace it with a 10$ lock off eBay, fill that bitch with your own fucking cokes and make some money.

  • jmee425

    Let me explain. Almost all the locks that are tubular take a series of keys. Pepsi is mostly Series PAA 1-50 Coke is CAV 1-50 then most locks have serial keystamp around cylinder. Read the lock an order the key or go snoop around a coke or Pepsi company find the machines room an you will find a matching pair in coin return. Much easier to read lock an order online.

  • jmee425

    The round lock with 6 tiny holes is referred to as a gold lock those keys only come in 5 different green dot yellow dot red dot blue dot black dot key face looks reverse pattern of lock. Then there is what they call a round lock where you see no writing looks like a hole with a center pin. There are only 20 different key combinations. All these keys are on ebay. Same style of locks are also used on cash changing machine found in coin operated laundry rooms.
