SOURCE: i set my lock code

if the lock is locked up and the combo that you set it to is not working then I would say that there might be a problem with the lock itself. I would suggest returning to the store that you bought it from and exchange it for a new one. if you want to try and get the lock open - you can try and progress the numbers, since you already have a combo set, this is a little easier then if you didn't have a combo at all. try setting the lock to the combo that you selected, starting with the first number - rotate the first wheel to the next number and try the lock and then to the next number and try the lock, when you get back to your original number, go to the next wheel and rotate that one around to every number ( testing the shackle everytime you get to a new number )---- repeat this process for the next two number wheels,, hopefully this will work,, but again it could be a broken wheel and I would just exchange it for a new one and start fresh.
here is an example of progression --- 1973 ( combo set )
1974,1975,1976,1977,1978,1979,1970,1971,1972 --
1983,1993,1903,1913,1923,1933,1943,1953,1963,---
1073,1173,1273,1373,1473,1573,1673,1773,1873---
2973,3973,4973,5973,6973,7973,8973,9973,0973 ---
I just used 1973 for an example -- if you want a more exact progression chart tailored to your combo, just let me know and I can write it up for you.

if you have forgotten the combo the only way to get the lock to open is to ' progress ' the combo wheels. since it is only a 3 digit combo - this will take anywhere from 15 to 40 minutes.
start with 000 then 001 then 002 etc... all the way to 999 ( but you will get the combo before 999 is reached ). after the combo is found, with the latch open push the lever to the to open position and set the new combo that you want.

How do I can unlock dial lock


The master dial lock is the world's best selling combination padlock.The lock uses three digit combination of 40 numbers.allowing for 15,00 possible variations
.Follow these step to unlock dial lock. 25284217-gdc3ufgmlwaqnv2deqjxyac2-5-0.jpg With the Combination Step 1 Turn the lock until the numbers read right-side-up. Roll the left-most dial until the first number of your combination lines up with the scored hash mark just to the left of the dial.
With the Combination Step 2 Roll the middle dial until the appropriate number lines up with the number to its left. Do the same for the right-most number. Your three-digit combination should now show, left to right, lined up with the scored hash marks.
With the Combination Step 3 Pull the body of the lock away from the U-shaped metal ring without turning any of the dials. The lock will click open to expose a hook. The hook spins 360 degrees so that it can be placed onto, and taken off, luggage.
Forgotten Combination Step 1 Pull the body of the lock and the U-shaped ring away from each other to put pressure on the mechanism inside the lock. Pull the body of the lock away from its attachment, or, if the lock is not attached, apply pressure on the U-shaped ring away from the body of the lock with your fingers. Keep holding a firm, steady pressure.
Forgotten Combination Step 2 Roll the dial closest to the U-shaped ring slowly, while keeping steady pressure on the mechanism. The dial will get difficult to roll over three consecutive numbers, and one of those numbers will click. You should feel and hear this small click, and that is the first number to your combination.
Forgotten Combination Step 3 Repeat Step 2 with the middle dial, and then the farthest dial. Leave the dial set when you find the click, moving onto the next dial. The combination will reveal itself, letting you pull the U-ring away from the body of the lock.
Resetting Your Combination Step 1 Hold the body of the lock so that the numbers face away from you. Set the combination and release the U-shaped ring.
Resetting Your Combination Step 2 Turn the hook of the U-shaped ring counterclockwise 90 degrees until the notch on the stem of the hook and the hole on the body of the lock line up. Push the stem of the hook down into the body of the lock as far as it will go.
Resetting Your Combination Step 3 Turn the hook another 90 degrees counterclockwise while it is depressed into the body of the lock.
Resetting Your Combination Step 4 Roll the dials until you have your new combination.
Resetting Your Combination Step 5 Turn the hook 90 degrees clockwise and raise the stem out of the body of the lock. Turn it another 90 degrees clockwise and push it back into the locked position. The lock now uses your new combination.

    Have just purchased an 8mm Tioga resettable combination bike lock but stupidly threw the packaging with instructions on how to reset the combination... currently set at 0000.


    I realise this is an old question, but...
    Open the lock with the default combination (0-0-0-0)
    At the insertion point you will see a raised ring to the right of the numbers. Turn this part clockwise (it has an arrow on it). Set the combination you want. Turn the ring back, anticlockwise. All done!

    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.
