there are no GC stores here in puerto and i can't really buy a new case seeing as i don't really have the money, i was just seeing if there was a way i could open up the lock without the key.

Get some strong bolt cutters and snip the latch on that one lock, then just use all the others to latch your case? Or buy a new case. Or find the key.


Yea, looked everywhere for the key so i'll just drill through the lock or something i guess. Thanks again, everyone.

Go as a tampon
White shirt, white hat, white trousers (cheap ones) and cover the bottom half in fake blood, also have to write 'Tampax' on the shirt, so people know what you are and can then be disgusted.

.....Unless your room is upside-down...

most locks on cases really arent that legit. you could probably spend some time with a paper clip or two and get it open. if you remember what the key looks like and such, you have a better chance. unless its a real lock with a bunch of tumbles and stuff, then you probably cant open it and its best to get a locksmith.

Was doing that for a while but since the lock was moving out of place i asked my dad if we could go to a locksmith so i don't mess it up.
