With a pin punch (or substitute tool), CAREFULLY knock out the hinge pin.....for complete cap removal. :rockon:
Repair lock or have re-keyed as necessary......

If you're a psycho and just happen to own a Captive Bolt Pistol, then you can punch out that lock like how the bad guy in No Country for Old Men did.

Thank you evulcanibbal but rather punched it out with another pin, I didn't have any luck fixing the seized lock is there a universal cap I can use instead?
