Can You Break A Lock With Canned Air? (Movie Mythbusting)

  • Published on Jul 20, 2019

    Today we're testing out a movie myth of whether or not you can freeze a lock and break it with a can of compressed air. We'll also see how much air is inside of them, what happens when you puncture the can, and what kind of air is inside.

    It lightly catches fire because air is 21% oxygen

    What’s about that he just said “if it’s flammable “ and after that he just showed the NON FLAMMABLE marker?

    Flammable / Non Flammable is only determined by an arbitrary temperature point at which it will burn and whether it will sustain itself when burned. R-134 (Tetrafluoroethane) will not burn at normal temperatures so it is considered non flammable. Some brands use difluoroethane which is almost as flammable as propane!

    I feel like if the lock had fractures and moisture it could be broken, since frozen water expands

    I've seen people use the refrigerant recharge of R 12 to break the club off of steering wheels. The harder more brittle the metal the more susceptable it is to break at super low temps.

    What would happen if you guys hung the lock from something, then froze it. If you're going to be busting movie myths, might as well do it like they did in the movie.

  • Alex russell

    Just want to point out the way you guys hit it was ineffective. When its hit in the movie the block of the lock is forced down so the mechanisms inside the lock can be broken and the steel part is forced away from it

  • Logan Prenger

    The reason it didnt break is because you didnt have it attached to anything. The only force acting on the lock is the can impact. What you can do is hang the lock from something, like it would be if it were locking a door, and then hit downward on the lock. This way you have the force of the hammer, as well as whatever the lock is attached to essentially becoming a force pulling in the opposite direction. The shackle will separate from the lock body.
    Not saying this explodes the lock, or even that canned air will help this, but you can break a lock this way and I suspect the freezing of the lock would make it easier.

    7:00 Really?? That's the plastic on fire and the oxygen from the air coming out feeding it. Its NOT flammable because its just air.

    • Burtasaurus Rex

      That was proven when they used it to extinguish the flame. I assume when they were filming, they couldn't see the straw catching fire so assumed maybe it was the canned air.

    Actually it is high pressure in the can and evaporates in atmosphere and becomes cold

  • Kyle Fielder

    She also hit the lock from the top down while it had a small focus point to put all of the energy into the very top of the shackle while it was frozen and brittle, not the best testing for this.

    @The King of Random can you try liquid nitrogen on the lock for funnsies?

    You break into a lock by spraying freon into it, not canned air.... idiots.

  • Milaan Patel

    The gas in the can is actually non-flamable. When u blow it across a fire it creats high velocity, low pressure flow which drives the surrounding air (containing oxygen) in the flame fueling it. Thats called the venturi effect. It's similar to blowing to dying campfire with your mouth to get it started again.

  • Paul Trush
    Paul Trush 6 days ago

    And also if you are just trying to freeze the body of the lock itself how n the world does it make sense to try and smack it with a hammer or anyting lying flat on the concrete. Because the concrete is absorbing half of the impact energy.🤔🤔😆just sayin lol😂

  • Paul Trush
    Paul Trush 6 days ago

    If u actually set it up on a door jig with a lock clasp like on the movie. And then use the duster air where the shanks go in and in the keyhole itself and then hit the lock itself on a downward motion it should break. Because trying to freeze the whole body of the lock versus just trying to freeze the Tumblers inside the lock is obviously two completely different worlds🤔

    Btw I'm also a blade Smith and ive tried cryogenic tempering which causes the steel to become extremely suseptible to impact but that lick is not steel its aircraft grade aluminum whuch means unless its temprature decreases below negative 100 degrees a prosses of freezing the molecules in the substance will not take place as where with steel the temprature only has to fall below negative 20
