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

1 Answer

My Brass Master Lock Combination Lock is refusing to unlock. A couple of the combo numbers seem to be "sunk in" a bit. I tried WD40 but still will not unlock and I need to open my gate. This lock is only less than a year old. Help!

    Unfortunately, all three of us went out to put in the "right combination".  We all use this lock daily as we enter into our backyard gate. Earlier in the day, I had heard an "explosive" sound in the area of the lock but didn't see anything. This is a 4 digit combo for the 175D, I found the packaging. Don't see how putting in the numbers the opposite way would be successful or how three of us would not put in the right combination.

    I am sorry to disagree with you and the locksmith but listen carefullly, the lock is locked onto the gate - it is closed. My packaging says that the lock combo can only be changed when the lock is OPEN. I am stuck with the lock that won't OPEN. Yes, we are using the right combo, has been the same combo for over 5 years. Yes, we have a key but that does no good when the lock is locked, and my husband does not have bolt cutters. I guess we will have to find bolt cutters and send to MasterLock.

You need to make sure you are putting the righ combination. Try to put it the opposite way also for example

3645 or 5436

How many numbers are in the combination?...if it is a 3 number system it should be easy.

    175D comes with a change key. With that key you can change the combination as many times as you want. Who has the key?

    I think someone change the combination. Lock at you lock there must be a little whole on the side for that change key.

    Believe me I work in a locksmith store. I just consulted with the locksmith and we both saw the lock with the change key. Who bought the lock?

I forgotten my skybag number lock how to open the lock .

You can try to determine the combination by pulling on the shackle and moving the combination wheels until one of them clicks (or feels) different from the other numbers. Do the same for the other two number wheels. Lots of trial and error, but it has worked before.

Bell 4 digit bicycle cable lock won't open

Same thing happened to me today. (Bell kevlar combo lock 12 mm) I sprayed WD4 0 on my lock (probably wasn't necessary) and let it soak in. I looked up videos online which weren't very helpful. I kept trying to open my lock and I happened to move one of the four digits and it opened. I'm not sure how the lock pins work but it seems like if you lock your bike and move the lock into ackward positions you can cause one or more of the pins to move. My combo was 2194 and I opened it with the combo of 2294. Go ahead and try your combos +/- one number at all four positions. Hope this helps.

Can not unlock combination lock of 'jeep' suitcase. Initial combo was 0,0,0. How can I reset the combination ?

What you want to do is just keep tension on the shackle, or the part of the lock that would open. With tension on it start at the opposite end and turn the numbers. You will notice that it will get "stuck" on a specific number. That's the last number in the combo. Turn the middle number till it sticks. Then the last. Tadaa! Hopethishelps

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.

Can't open sentry v260 safe

Make sure you are inserting key so the round hump on key matches red dot on lock, and turn key clockwise.

If that doesn't fix it, SentrySafe's support number is 1-800-828-1438.

I would think they can confirm the combination from your serial number. They probably won't give you the combination without a notarized letter, but if you have the right combination for that serial number safe, they may confirm that you are entering the right combination.

Be aware the 4 number combination V260's are changeable and if you HAVE changed it, you are on your own, they can't help you. The 3 number combinations are not changeable.
