tubular lock Answered

Are there any ways to pick a tubular lock with paper clips or common house items?And where can I find a cheap lock


you can pick some locks with paper clips but it depends in the paper clip just as mutch as it does the lock.

I really doubt you can. They're meant to be particularly hard to pick.

Tubular as in the U-lock style ones? I think certain ones can be picked with a bic pen lid, but you might be referring to the 7-pin ones that need a specialised pick device to be opened.
