If the lock is locked up and the combo that you set it to is not working then I would say that there might be a problem with the lock itself. I would suggest returning to the store that you bought it from and exchange it for a new one. if you want to try and get the lock open - you can try and progress the numbers, since you already have a combo set, this is a little easier then if you didn't have a combo at all. try setting the lock to the combo that you selected, starting with the first number - rotate the first wheel to the next number and try the lock and then to the next number and try the lock, when you get back to your original number, go to the next wheel and rotate that one around to every number ( testing the shackle everytime you get to a new number )---- repeat this process for the next two number wheels,, hopefully this will work,, but again it could be a broken wheel and I would just exchange it for a new one and start fresh.
here is an example of progression --- 1973 ( combo set )
1974,1975,1976,1977,1978,1979,1970,1971,1972 --
2973,3973,4973,5973,6973,7973,8973,9973,0973 ---
I just used 1973 for an example -- if you want a more exact progression chart tailored to your combo, just let me know and I can write it up for you.

1 Answer

Reset combination abus 160/50

The answer can be found at "The shackle can only be opened when the correct code is dialed and this is required in order to reset the code. With the correct code dialed in the user pulls out the shackle, turns the key on the right-hand side of the lock 90 degrees clockwise and sets the new code on the dials. The new code is in effect once the key is turned back to the vertical position."

I set a code in the master lock speed dial 1500id, and it will not open. I cannot reset the code and do not know how to get this open. I have read the other suggestions and nothing has worked yet. Anyone...

Try 2 options:
1. just squeeze the shackle twice and pull it out. This is in case you forgot to enter new combination.
2, Make the 2 combination together, the old and the new as one sequence. This in case you forgot to squeeze the shackle before enter new combination

I messed up entering a new combo on my master lock speed dial thing, this is the second time I did this, how can I open my lock?

If you did not clear the lock before entering new code, you probably have a long combination: the old and new together. Squeeze the shackle twice, enter both codes as one new code and open.

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,

I forgot the master combo and now i cant get it...can i reset it?

I don't know if Master Lock will supply a combination or not but they can open it for you. There might be ownership issues that need verified. They don't know who's keys are in it and they don't know if the lock has been stolen.
