    Pennies, dimes, and quarters can also make a wrong-sized wrench work on the nut you have when you can't find or can't reach the wrench you need.

    That padlock is a cheapie. I would think a good quality lock wouldn't give. However, you can always grind it apart with a cutting disc. I like the duct tape trick. That could come in handy.
    Stupid is forever, ignorance can be fixed.

    , a much bigger padlock also works altough there is a limit.
