Most likely they will but I would not recommend that you buy these as there of poor quality as the jaws are not hardened enough to do the job you will be asking these cutters to do.

Can this cut locks

Asked by alex May 20, 2017

Answers

Absolutely not. I bought it for that purpose an it was a real joke when I opened an spread the jaws tried to cut my lock an the blade steel just bent as they the cutting steels in the jaws weren't even hardened sufficiently or were they manufactured from a hardened steel. I ended up taking them back.

First the brand is Wiss not HK porter and this is a cable cutter not for screws, for me it works for what I bought it, which was to cut pieces of small aluminum of 2mm and cables too, cut them easier than normal pliers. It also works for some normal sized gates.

Cutters are not what the picture shows
I purchased these to make some cuts to 150lb wire that sat flush to a surface. The picture online shows the cutting edge extending to the end of the pliers, which is not the case. They stop around 1/8" away and then take a 45 degree angle to the end of the pliers (see picture). This makes cutting anything that sits flush to a surface very difficult since it falls within that void. If you are looking to cut things that have room around them, then these do a fine job but for the specific task I purchased them for, they do not work.
