I found 2 Kryptonite combination cable locks out of a storage box and do not remember there combination! Both are open! Is there a way for me to reset combination while there open? Thanks Denys


Probably not. But a simple solution for this is to turn the numbers and listen for a click when the tumbler locks into place. You' should be able to get the combination from both locks by doing this.

I locked my bikes and went on an extended vacation. Now, I cannot remember the combos. Kroptonite Kryptoflex 1218 Combo Cable Bike Lock


if you have forgotten the combo, then the only way to figure out the combo is to 'progress' the lock,, do this by starting at 0000 then 0001,0002,0003 and so on all the way through until the right combo is reached, trying to open the lock at every number. now what will help in the speed of this is if you can at least remember the first number or two,, say that you set the combo to a birth year ( 1977 ) ---- then all you need to do is start at 1900,1901,1902,1903,1904 etc..( just an example ). but a four digit combo will take about 1 1/2 to 2 hours to figure out.

I dont know how to open the lock its brand new????? They failed to give me instructions when they attached to the bike


My new lock didn't come with any instuctions. I followed the link above and located the "bike locks" heading. I found that the question:

- I have a Kryptonite resettable combination lock and can't find the instructions for resetting it. How can I change the combination?

contained a pdf titled :

- Resettable Combination Cable
(red reset buttons inside)

which is not the cryptoflex 1218 but is compatible anyway.

dont hurt your fingers trying to depress the nodules as the diagram says though. to my chagrin i discovered that they will turn easily if you just push them around into place.

here are the instructions:

To set your own combination
Your new lock is preset to open at 0-0-0-5 at the factory.
1. Open the lock by aligning the opening combination
number to the Guide Points and pull out the Lock
Post. (Figure 1)
2. Push down the two Reset Buttons simultaneously
with thumb and forefinger, and turn counterclockwise
until it comes to a stop. (Figure 2)
3.You are now ready to turn the dials to set your
secret combination, such as a phone number, birthday,
etc.
4. After setting your secret combination, turn the
two Reset Buttons again by Thumb and Forefinger
clockwise until it comes to a stop and back to its
original position.
5. Verify your new combination before using your
lock. Insert the Lock Post all the way into the Locking
Port but do not turn the dials. Pull out the Lock Post.
Your lock is ready to use.
6.The reset operation is now complete. Repeat
steps 1-5 anytime you wish to change your secret
combination.

I forgot my code


I have the same issue. I just bought a bike and dug out my old bike lock from college. Obviously the codes I'd being using now are not what I programmed my bike lock originally with. Any suggestions??
I've been trying to listen to the lock when I rotate the numbers and crack the code. Not a fun task.
