How to Drill Open a Standard Door Lock

Lucas Murgida teaches you how to drill open a standard door lock. "For almost 9 years I worked as a locksmith. Usually when I tell people this they say, “OHHH, you can pick locks!!” Though I can indeed pick locks, this skill represented a tiny fraction of what I did on a day-to-day basis. In actuality most locks cannot be picked. The reasons for this are complicated but rest assured that there is no way anyone is picking the lock on (for instance) a parking meter. Because of this most locks must be destroyed in order to open what they are on. A good locksmith can gain access to something with minimal damage to the door or hardware that the lock is in."
You will need ( tools or supplies ): 
Standard #2 Flathead Screwdriver
5/32 drill bit
Strong, thin piece of metal (like a large paper clip)
Powerful drill
