Cannot unlock my husbands tsa lock we are in argentina


To set/reset combination on TSA Cable Lock

TSA Cable Locks come preset from the factory to 0-0-0. Set the combination to 0-0-0 or your already chosen combination. if different than 0-0-0. To set the combination, use a pointed device such as a pen to press in on B. While pressing on B (do not release B until combination is set), pick your 3 digit combination.

Once all 3 dials are set to the combination you want, release B. Your TSA Cable lock Is now set to your combination. TSA Lock will NOT be locked at this new combination - turn one or more dials and your lock will be locked. To unlock, follow instructions above.

Please make sure to remember your combination!

Hi, I bought a Krypto bicycle lock over 5 years ago. I don't see it displayed on your website. It has yellow ends with 4 digit combination numbers red on black.The rope cable is grey and has a clear...


Krypto has the resetting of the combination lock on their website (under Maintenance) but if you cannot unlock it in the first place you can not reset the combination. You have to know the old combination to get it open.

Well, sometimes happens. Last week some "funny" guy (or girl) changed the code of my Defcon CL Laptop Lock and yes, usually a left my cable in unlock state, so he (she) had change this code, maybe he (she)...


An easy way? Yeah, sure, make it easy for thieves to bypass the security. :-)

On the average, you'll only have to try 5000 combinations, out of the possible 10 thousand. Or, buy/borrow a heavy-duty pair of bolt-cutters -- see: http://www.hand-tools.us/images/pictures/northern-industrial-18in-bolt-cutters.jpg

and cut away.

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 have lost my instructions to unlock this TARGUS PA400C DEFCON 1 AUDIBLE NOTEBOOK ALARM (PA400C) Do you know where I can find what the default code is?


this may help

Due to the nature of security devices, there is no "magic unlock" code for the Defcon device. To recover a lost combination:

·Set the tumblers to the last known combination.

·While applying pressure to the red release button, rotate the tumblers up one digit and then down one digit on each of the individual tumblers.

·For Example: If your last know combination was 565

1.Set the tumblers to 565

2.Hold the red release button in and rotate the 1st tumbler to 6 so that the combination is now set to 665 (If this is the set combination the red release button will move in)

3.Hold the red release button in and rotate the 1st tumbler to 4 so that the combination is now set to 465

4.If not found move onto the 2nd tumbler and repeat step 1-3

5.If not found move onto the 3rd tumbler and repeat step 1-3
