It can be picked and/or bumped, and does not contain any spool pins or other fancy security devices.

The trick to these guys is the rather massive tension that is needed to actually operate the mechanism. Use the lock's key to get an idea of how much pressure you need - it is substantially more than other Master padlocks. Using this sort of pressure will not help you actually pick (or bump) the lock, however. You have to pick or bump it as per usual, and then apply the enormous pressure to turn the cylinder. The first few times you find success in picking this lock, you probably won't open it, as you won't realize the the cylinder is free to turn.

This being said, it is also possible that you have a lock that is pinned in a nasty fashion, and the No. 40 does take a slight modification in bumping technique, due to its rather awkward shape.

Best of luck!

i found that it helped to turn the key back to the left after each failed bump attempt. this ensures that the pins reset.
