Unlocking a utility meter lock is a simple process that is easy to learn with the right tool. For example, it is first important to be sure you are indeed using the correct key. Only a barrel lock meter key should be used to open a barrel lock or cylinder lock. Some websites and YouTube videos offer "hacks" or picking techniques designed to open one of these locks without the correct key. To ensure the long term integrity of a lock it is vital to only use a key that is the exact match for the lock in question.
