Master Lock 175 – Bypass Latch
Wether tactical or not, this technique could save a life. With improvised tools or professional tools see how we bypass this 4 digit code Master Lock 175 combo lock for a field expedient entry.
For this technique you don’t “need” a training lock or a see through lock to know what’s going on inside. But it helps a little bit. If you want to get a little more of an edge you can go here – ITStactical.com’s Master 175 trainer – and get yourself one for about 45$, they are often out of stock so if you want one then check back frequently and be ready to buy.
Just like our last video (Link: Master Lock 175 Kinetic Bypass) this technique is reliant upon activating the lever/latch that holds the shackle closed, this time we just reach in and we taaaaaap it in… we just taaaaaaaap it in.
It takes a small thin tool to only get about a 1/2 inch of penetration and a really light toggle on the latch/lever (shown below).
If you are on ITS’s website you might also want to pick up one set of their EZDecoders. They come in a set of two for 10$ total …. or you can just buy a pack of hair berets or snap clips of about 10 pieces for about 2$. …up to you.

*This technique will work on many Master Lock 175 locks (although some of their newer production locks have a much tighter tolerance and may have a patch that fixed this bypass) and this will also work on many Master Lock 178 locks (painted black).
See our YouTube video for a few more tips and pros/cons and watch us try this on a few locks with a few different tools.
Thanks for stopping by… but also, stay classy.
