Open the lock. (default = 0000)

Look into the center of the cone.

You should see SET with an arrow

Turn the center tab or dial away from SET direction

Set the combination

Turn the same tab or dial to the SET direct.

Test the combination

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.

Have purchased a Kryptonite RCL 111 and upon wanting to use it the 0005 combination does not open the lock and hence I am unable to use the product. Can you assist? Thanks You Roland

brand new locks come preset with a ' 0000 ' code and then you can change it to whatever you want -- so I would try and set the wheels to all zeros ( 0000 ) and see if it will open then. if you bought this lock new and set it to a combo and the lock does not know the code then there is a chance that one of the combo wheels has broken ( this happens all the time ) --- take the lock back to the store that you bought it from and tell them that it is broken and they will replace it with a new one.
if you did set the combo but you forgot what the combo was or it was set wrong - then you can try and progress the combo by starting with 0000 ' try the lock ' then 0001,then 0002,0003,0004 etc.. all the way thru all the numbers until the lock opens,,, this does take some time and at the lock shop that I work at, we see this all the time and we try 'em in our spare time --- going from 0000 to 9999 usually takes about 1 1/2 hours to 2 hours to spin thru all the digits. ( this is really the only way to figure out the combo ).

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.

Resetting combination bike lock

Try rotating locking device 180 degrees and hold it down and set combo to 0000, then let up on locking bar. That should clear the old combo. To reset, rotate the device 180 degrees and hold down while inserting your new 4 digit code and then release it.
