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

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!

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.

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.

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

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.
