Your mailbox is not your legal mailbox; belongs to the United States Postal Service. This means mailbox manipulation is a federal crime.US Postal Service PO Box Your local post office can change the lock for you when you request the service.

If you don’t have a lock picking kit, you will need to use bobby pins to create your own lever and pick. In choosing a bobby pin, it must be sturdy enough so it won’t break as you apply pressure and insert it in the lock. If it has rubber caps on it, you must remove them first using a pair of pliers.Another option is two pieces of paper clips. One paper clip will serve as the pick while the other one is the lever. I strongly advise that you use a paper clip that is made of metal so it won’t break inside the lock. It must also be big enough to fit into the lock, and at the same time, apply pressure to the pins inside the lock.
Use something that looks like a key.
Another way to unlock your mailbox without a key, since most mailbox mechanisms are simple or most of them are made in China, is to use small manicure scissors or a small, thin knife. You only have to insert the thin part of the objects into the lock and then turn in the same direction as with a key. Turn slowly until the door opens or until you hear the characteristic “click”. If using a pair of small scissors or a small knife doesn’t work, you can fall back on a thin bobby pin.
