    DP is a master of breaking these locks with out affecting the cases. We have bought a couple of cheap kids movies that have the plastic wrapping over the top, but is security locked underneath. When he gets home from work i'll ask him what his secret is.

    Not sure if you have solved the problem, but, DP said all he does, is get 3 metal skewers(but anything similar shape would fit i guess), at either end of the case there will be a small hole, place the skewer inside and fiddle around abit, keep it tilted until it feels like it is in the right place then place the other skewer down the other end and do the same thing, then you just have to slide the lock to the slide a little bit and it should pop open for you.

    Thank you to you and your DP, MothersInstinct. I was waiting to see what your DP suggested, so am off to have a fiddle with my skewers! Hopefully I will have the knack as he does.

    I like the skewer idea - I'll try that next time they stuff up at the register .. GAH ..

    I got home one night with two cranky children, raced to put the DVD on so I could cook dinner in peace and realised that it hadn't been unlocked at the checkout - I muttered a REALLY naughty word .. then rang the store who said I could bring it back (yeah .. two kids .. not gonna happen ) so she said the only way then to open it is to break the case ..

    I just used two butterknives, wedged one in, and then used the other to lever the case till it cracked .. I've done it TWICE now (second one was a gift to the boys) .. and I've managed to do it without damaging the cd .. it IS time consuming, but do able

    Urgh, how annoying!

    I got my self a new DVD a few weeks back and had the same issue. Thankfully I had the receipt and DF ran it back to the store. Otherwise I don't know what I would have done. Perhaps break the case open?

    I hope you get it open without too much fuss!
