Question about Locks & Locksmithing
SOURCE: My friends were messing around
Make your dumb friends find the code or buy you a new lock.
there is not trick to it... it'll have to be done by trial and error...
Sorry for your troubles.

if you have totally forgotten the combo, then the only way to figure out the combo is to progress the combo -- to do this you will start from 0000 and then 0001,0002,0003,0004 etc.. all the way through until you hit the right numbers and the lock opens, ( make sure you try and open the lock at every new number ). a 4 digit combo usually takes about 1 1/2 to 2 hours to go through all the numbers. what will help in this progression process is if you can at least remember one of the numbers or better yet, remember two of the numbers.
some locksmith shops do have special tools ( readers ) that might be able to read the wheels and figure out the combo for you --- call around and ask some of the lock shops in your area if they have the ability to read the lock for you,, but if they can't - then you are back to square one ( progression ).
hope this helps,
