Master Lock luggage lock

I have the 3-wheel Master Lock luggage lock. (It's item 646 or 647 on the Master Lock website.) I don't have the instructions. Are there instructions on-line for how to set a personalized combination. Currently the combination is set to 0-0-0.

Thank you!

How do you crack a master lock 1534d?

I just unlocked a 1534 4-digit lock I couldn't open for 2 years. I found the info online. Use a flat blade to spread the wheels apart slightly and look for the red mark on each wheel. There were only three metal tabs on each wheel on mine so if this is the same on yours and you can't find the tab with the red mark, worst case senario would be to record each number shown at the mark when one of the tabs is lined up. It will take 3^x turns max to find the combination without locating the red marks. For 4 wheels, that is 3x3x3x3 or 81 possible combinations. For 5 wheels, it would be 3x3x3x3x3 or 243 possible combinations.

If you can find all but one red mark, line them up with the mark on the lock and go through all digits on the one you couldn't find. Shouldn't take too long. I tried to unlock mine by brute force (every possible combination of 10000 choices) and ran out of steam less than half-way through. That was with only 4 wheels and 10 digits each.

Tsa002 change combination

Most combination luggage locks can be reset when they are open. The combination wheels can't be turned unless the lock is being reset. So either the wheels show the correct combination, or you will be able to turn them to a new combination. The lock that is "locked outside the hole" was either not relocked after inspection or it's in reset mode.

My combination on my california pak luggage does not work. How can I open/reset the combination?

If the lock is unlocked - try this: Unzip the inside liner, find the lock backing plate. Undo the 2 screws and remove the lock from the suitcase. Find a good strong light, and maybe a magnifying glass. Look at the 3 holes in the back and rotate the dials until the 3 slots are lined up. Open and close the lock, noting the combination. Re-assemble the lock on the suitcase. Hold the lock open, dial in your own combination. Make sure it works before locking it up. Cheers

Just bought a "speen dial"

this happens from time to time with these locks ( dial wheels break and lose their index mark ).
you can try and put all numbers to zeros and see if that opens the lock -- or progress the lock numbers from 0000 to 0001,0002,0003 etc... all the way to 9999,, this takes along time and if a index wheel is broken there is a chance that it will never line up right. I would suggest taking the lock back to the store that you bought it from and exchange it for a new one. ( if it attached to something -- just cut it off and take it back to the store and explain to them that the lock has malfunctioned.. at the lock shop that I work at, we see 3 of these a week, and 'Master lock' knows that there is a problem from time to time --- if the store that you bought it from gives you any trouble with the exchange, you can send the lock directly to Master lock and they will exchange it for you at no charge ).

We have a Passage-2 luggage lock that my husband has forgotten the 3 digit code to. how can we reset it to get it unlocked and set up with a new combo?

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.

On the master glo website it tells me - as a standard factory settings rule - that to open the lock i have to turn 3 times to the right to start - is that three full turns ?? could you explain how to open...

Let me see if I can help. I started out to write you an explanation when I found this video for you to watch...It explains better than I ever could.

CLICK BELOW and when you get to the site, scroll down the page on the right, till you get to " Combo Lock Training Tool " listed under " MASTER LOCK SERVICES " Click on Combo Lock Training Tool and a video will download that you can watch.

Hope This Helps,

Set luggage lock

the lock is currently set to 000. To set your own combination and with the lock in the 000 position, open the case and on the inside of the lock mechanism you will see a red tab. slide this tab to the left and then move the digits on the front to your desired code. ie 123. then move the red tab back to lock in this new setting as your own personal combination. close the case and then move the digits away from our setting of 123 and this locks the case. only if the digitrs are 123 in this example will the lock now open.
