Question about Simplex Locks & Locksmithing
Posted by Anonymous on
SOURCE: Need to change the combination
Got these instructions from: >>>> http://www.indra.com/archives/alt-locksmithing/hobbit.html >>>>
"Once you know the current combination, you might want to change it. Instructions for doing this undoubtedly come with the lock; but it's real easy. There is a screw in the top with a hex hole; remove this from the lock body. Dial the proper combination, but don't move the handle. Press straight down through the hole with a small screwdriver, until you feel something go "thunk" downward. The lock is now in change mode. Reset the tumblers [leftward twist], enter your new combination, twist the handle as though opening the lock, and your change is now in effect. Re-insert the screw. This does the following: The thing you hit with the screwdriver pushes the tumblers down onto the locking bar [which is why the proper combination must be entered], and disengages them from their idler gears. Button presses turn the *idler* *gears* around, and then the opening action shoves the tumblers back up to mesh with these gears in their new positions. A subsequent reset mixes the tumblers up again to follow the new combination. This description is admittedly somewhat inadequate; the right thing to do is take one of the locks apart and see for one's self what exactly happens inside."
Hope this helps. If it does. I'd appreciate a 4 thumbs up. Thanks,
