Which sounds like a better method of breaking open the lock to a treasure chest (assuming you have a crowbar):
Scenario 1: Use the crowbar for 30 seconds–and then continue to pull the lock off by hand for the rest of time, OR…
Scenario 2: With the crowbar firmly in the open space and against the lock, with the treasure chest as the fulcrum, you continually press through on the crowbar until that lock fucking snaps.
That’s right, you’ll want to press on that crowbar for sure. Find out what you can use yon yourself for leverage to break the lock. The treasure of your greatness lies within.
JUST DO IT.
