Question about Master Lock 5400d: Portable Select Access Key Storage Lock

Resetting my master lock

I purchased a master lock combination lock that comes with the key. It came with the 3 digit combination and directions to reset to a personal combination, but with the confusing directions I did something wrong, because I cannot open with the old 3 digit number or the new number that I thought I set it with. Is there anyway to reset this thing without opening it, or may I out of luck?

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.

    I forgot the combination to my master lock box. What do I need to open the box?


    If you do not have the combination, try to contact the manufacturer directly. There may be a serial number on the lock that they can match the combination to.

    If that does not work, you will need to contact a locksmith.

    I have a master lock 1534D and can't remember the combo. How can I reset it?


    Check the MasterLock web site to see if they still offer to provide for forgotten combinations. Some years ago I got a combination for a standard rotary dial lock by providing the usual identification information plus a photo of the lock showing its serial number.
