And if you do find them, they are always in the last place you look.

Any luck yet?

Pick the lock

There is a wealth of lock picking videos on Youtube. We lost/ forgot the Combination to a Master lock and just for fun wanted to try lock picking. After viewing videos on YT , with minimal effort we picked the lock. There were 15+ videos on the exact Master lock. Scarry !

You don't even need a hammer for a Master combo lock

Some joker put a second lock on one of my tree stands once, bow season ended. Wanted to get my stand out of the woods and home. 20 gauge shotgun at 14 feet, no lock, no problem.

I think it's worth having a look; if it's done this way, that domed cap in the centre of the bumper step will pull out to reveal the head of a vertical bolt, with two more bolts mounted horizontally on the front (hidden) side. This can be confirmed or ruled out in about one minute of examination.
his truck may be that way...but that ain't the same as the factory receiver option on my 2015 Ram..it's a Class IV receiver welded to a big curved steel frame (about same size as main truck frame members) that bolts to the main truck frame in multiple places and curves around the spare tire area under the bed.

Go directly to the garage. Don't stop by the dealer first.

Why, do you keep looking after finding something?

In my case, because I probably have two and would like to know where they both are so my stellar inventory system can be updated. I am not a hoarder, I just have a retrieval problem. My greatest fear is that when I die, my wife will sell my stuff
for what I told her I paid for it.

Just saw this, Jim.

We haven't found any extra keys, but if they show up while we're on the road we'll let you know.
