* your best bet would be to remove lock set and take it down to your nearest Home Depot, Lowe's, City mill, Ace Hardware, etc. It's a pretty common lock brand. The store key maker, door hardware section should be able to help.
* I've found it's best to replace the lock set as these combo locks only last about a year in heavy traffic areas. Especially if it's exposed to weather.
* Constant opening and closing shakes things up real good. Lots of small wires and plastic parts break all the time.
* Key pads wear out fast. Especially if the code is not changed every month.

Called "handing" the lock (left-hand or right hand door hinges):
Remove the battery pack. Keep the door open.Hold down the "Lock" button on the exterior keypad and at the same time, insert the battery pack into the interior assembly. Keep holding down the lock button until you hear two beeps, which will take approximately 30 seconds. During that time, the Smartcode mechanism will automatically drive in and out several times to determine proper handing.Done!

There is an excellent installation & programming video where you can watch how to do this, and it also explains the features of the internal slide switches.


Good luck!

I have a new carlton misha cabin case and it has arrived with on of the zip arms in the lock and I cant get it to move and have not been given the code, could some one help please

I agree with the previous answer, and can only add that if something is jammed in there, you'll have to find a way to relieve the pressure on the mechanism while you are trying to move the piece that unlocks it. Depending on what is jammed and where, you may have to press down, up, in, out, or sideways while unlocking it.

That is the patent number not the model number. Google seems to think it is a combination lock. Obviously you can't reset it when it is locked or a thief could do the same. You would have to take it to a locksmith to be picked.
