Kinda hard to guess without a pic. Why dont you just go buy a lockpicking kit...theyre handy to have anyways ;)

Have you contacted Valley at all. Possibly you can get a key if there is any info on the lock. In the mean time just stick an old sock in each pocket to keep the balls accessable and play away. Pool I mean. Ha-Ha. I so funny.

If it is a cylindrical key the tumblers are designed to be pick proof. You can get a key made if you know the number (never easily accessible) but cutting a new key from the number is often a trial and error (expensive) fit because of the wear from normal use on the tumblers. Behind the lock is a standard latching mechanism so you could either punch it or drill it depending on the latching mechanism. I would ask a locksmith over after only as a last resort as it will be pricey.

Go to www.budk.com , and look up the lock pick set...they have two. One is a regular set for picking locks, and the other is a little more, (bout $45) kinda like a little gun. You insert the pick and squeeze the trigger and it hits so fast it trips the tumblers all at once. That might be an option. Plus ya could use the picks when shopping late at night.:eek: :D
