I set my new code but it won't open.
If you remember the first letter/number you're still in luck. What you need to do is start off with that letter. If you know what you tried to set, ex. ATE
A, D, E, H, J, L
As for the last number/letter, all you have to do is keep spinning it right and you will hit it.
For me, I tried fooling around and setting ALT
However, when I was entering the new combo, I turned 3times or more right when key was in to A, then a full circular left turn past A to L. From L, I turned the same direction 4 clicks to T and locked it. I realized I entered it wrong when I locked it. How these locks were designed isn't that complicated. It consists of 3 different turns. Right, left, right. Right to A, left to L, right to T. When I had entered, right to A, left to L, and left again to T. It automatically makes the second letter/digit the same as your first letter/digit. I cracked my lock trying all combinations of A,L,T. Writing a list helps. But I also suggest your write down a list of your first digit twice.
A, A, L
A, L, A
A, L, T
A, A, T (That's what my code was after incorrectly trying to set it as "ALT")
However, this is only one method. When I had purchased the lock a year ago and set a combination. I approached it with a different method. The first one as I mentioned. I had tried to set EAT to test. The combo ended up being a letter or two off in the combo itself. So my cracked combo was not EAT but something _AT or EA_ or E_T. Combos usually aren't off by a whole lot. I was going to throw my lock away and buy a new one, but I cracked it :) I know this is alot about my own experience, but don't give up! I was planning on solving it, but I did it within 10mins! Not so tough !
