Bypassing involves manipulating the lock's actuator. A tool thinner and longer than the key will do the trick. Insert it through the keyway until you feel the back of the lock. This maneuver allows you to turn the mechanism that connects to the cam (part of the lock that rotates to open it). Some combination lock boxes have standard reset codes that you can use to perform a factory reset bypass. Check the reset code process on your lock's manual.

Shimming is executed by inserting two thin metal pieces into the gap between the lock body and the shackle and pressing down to trigger the unlock mechanism. The metal pieces can be easily fashioned from an aluminum can using a pair of scissors. Both keyed and combination padlocks are vulnerable to shimming.
