I found a video on line showing how to defeat bottle locks. I was skeptical at first, as most of the bottle security I have used is pretty fool proof. This time, the person was able to get the bottle lock off of their bottle of alcohol.
They claimed that they bought the bottle at a local supermarket, which forgot to remove the bottle lock at the time of purchase. Once they made it home and discovered the lock, they were unable to return to the store since it had closed down for the night.
In some ways, it was actually a fascinating process to watch. The person had found four or five different tools to use in the process, as well as needing at least to extra sets of hands. They reduced the video time to a few minutes, but had actually spent two hours working, and twisting, and prying bits and pieces off of the bottle lock.
The video showed them using various tools to cut, bend, burn, and mangle the lock off. Eventually they did succeed, but readily admitted that it would have been less frustrating just to wait until the store opened back up the next day.
The end result is that while it is possible to remove a bottle lock without a detacher key, the effort involved to do so is a deterrent in and of itself.
