One of my neighbours has a chain-link fence around the property, with double gates at the front which they are obsessive about locking.
Come the inevitable "I've lost the key to my gates" knock on my door, I followed them back with a box full of tools to try and force / break / cut a way in. Apart from the obvious (chain-link fence that would be easily cut through) it turned out that their gates simply lifted off the hinges.
