How To Open A Locked Outside Cable Box




What do you think about this video?

chad Thomas: 104 cable guy's dislike this video

Tim Allen: Many years ago cable companies would put something similar on the inside of the boxes that fed the cable lines into each apartment building, thus keeping anyone from hooking up the cable to the coax input inside the box. It was basically a cylinder inside a cylinder. The outside cylinder would turn but the inside cylinder, the one that was actually threaded onto the coax input wouldn't. One night I dumped a glob of super glue into the cylinder and the next night I went out and twisted the damned thing off and hooked up the cable. Super glue or a fork should do the trick.

pinkisntwell: I had one of them tools...about 10 years ago I had got satellite dish and the person installing just disconnected the cable and hooked up the dish. same day phoned the cable company and canceled their service. told them I had a dish. about 1 month later I was watching tv and there was a signal loss. phoned satellite company, and they said that the cable was just disconnected.so I look out the window and there was the cable guy unhooking the cables from the splitter. I yelled at him to get the freak off my property. and he said that it's the company's box and he can do what ever he wanted. I then proceeded to chase him out of the yard with a bat. but he left that tool in the slot. then I lent it out and never got it back..!! thanks for the video it worked great.

bud ninefiveo: Worked great!! Thanks

Master Chatter: that's a great Forking trick thx

Engima Box: heh heh good thing they are going to all digital, why yes there is filters, but they can sue you at that point and throw you in jail :)

littlegoobie: I just got one of these screwdrivers with a bundle from a 2nd hand store for 75cents and needed to find out what it was i got. 

donald thorton: All that is needed is needle for that type of termination lock is a pair of needle nose pliers. Open the pliers, stick one end all the way in, push in all the way, point tip upward slightly, close pliers and unscrew. If you hear a clicking noise close a little tighter. By the way If this is located on the outside of a home then you can just call your cable provider and they are required to remove it. You have to be allowed access to the side of the cable that enters your home along with the Ground line. 

Marvin Thomas: Thanks a whole bunch didn't have to pay my money and wait till after 4th of July to get my cable turned back on after they already got my money

Leslie Hernandez: omg! it actually worked thankyou lol :) 

James LaBelle: lol a fork!! Great thinking. Just about anything that can get in that groove outta work.

AllOneHeart9: OK...Here's my deal. I decided to switch to Comcast from ATT for my internet ONLY. Self install with new Comcast appropriate modem. That was last week. After getting the equipment and talking with 7 different Comcast peeps, while they say I have service to my house and a service person was supposed to be here yesterday, now it is next week. I asked if "magically" the cable (that already comes to the house and I had told them to CUT it right before the box 8 years ago because I never thought I would deal with Comcast again [another story]) got reconnected inside the box before next week, would I have service...and they said yes! SO, I am about to attempt that. Any suggestions? lol...besides Wait till next week and let them do it?

Bobbie Chappell: I tried it and it really work! !

Joe S: Wrong kyliam80 , Anything attached to the customers house is the customers property including the cable, the box and splitters inside of it. Cable companies just put that junk on the box to deter customers from connecting their own lines to demarc so they can charge service calls. I rip those terminators off all the time. 

Eric Wainright: And then when you get the box open, go ahead and freak with a bunch of crap you know nothing about. You still wont have free cable because the cable isn't terminated from the house box. Also, the house box is considered Cable Company property. Whether it is on your house or not is irrelevant.

Eric Withrow: Problem is termination is done at the pole not the box. All that in the box is splitters and now service is also controlled at the main office by computer so break in if ya want nothing in there..

manuel pineda: Fuccck u kyliam08 suck a dik u snitch.

dreikano: yep I"m a tech but you mess with it you will pay for any damage to the cables and or box and lock. lol so funny!
