I found 2 Kryptonite combination cable locks out of a storage box and do not remember there combination! Both are open! Is there a way for me to reset combination while there open? Thanks Denys


Probably not. But a simple solution for this is to turn the numbers and listen for a click when the tumbler locks into place. You' should be able to get the combination from both locks by doing this.

Hi, I bought a Krypto bicycle lock over 5 years ago. I don't see it displayed on your website. It has yellow ends with 4 digit combination numbers red on black.The rope cable is grey and has a clear...


Krypto has the resetting of the combination lock on their website (under Maintenance) but if you cannot unlock it in the first place you can not reset the combination. You have to know the old combination to get it open.

I locked my bikes and went on an extended vacation. Now, I cannot remember the combos. Kroptonite Kryptoflex 1218 Combo Cable Bike Lock


if you have forgotten the combo, then the only way to figure out the combo is to 'progress' the lock,, do this by starting at 0000 then 0001,0002,0003 and so on all the way through until the right combo is reached, trying to open the lock at every number. now what will help in the speed of this is if you can at least remember the first number or two,, say that you set the combo to a birth year ( 1977 ) ---- then all you need to do is start at 1900,1901,1902,1903,1904 etc..( just an example ). but a four digit combo will take about 1 1/2 to 2 hours to figure out.

I dont know how to open the lock its brand new????? They failed to give me instructions when they attached to the bike


My new lock didn't come with any instuctions. I followed the link above and located the "bike locks" heading. I found that the question:

- I have a Kryptonite resettable combination lock and can't find the instructions for resetting it. How can I change the combination?

contained a pdf titled :

- Resettable Combination Cable
(red reset buttons inside)

which is not the cryptoflex 1218 but is compatible anyway.

dont hurt your fingers trying to depress the nodules as the diagram says though. to my chagrin i discovered that they will turn easily if you just push them around into place.

here are the instructions:

To set your own combination
Your new lock is preset to open at 0-0-0-5 at the factory.
1. Open the lock by aligning the opening combination
number to the Guide Points and pull out the Lock
Post. (Figure 1)
2. Push down the two Reset Buttons simultaneously
with thumb and forefinger, and turn counterclockwise
until it comes to a stop. (Figure 2)
3.You are now ready to turn the dials to set your
secret combination, such as a phone number, birthday,
etc.
4. After setting your secret combination, turn the
two Reset Buttons again by Thumb and Forefinger
clockwise until it comes to a stop and back to its
original position.
5. Verify your new combination before using your
lock. Insert the Lock Post all the way into the Locking
Port but do not turn the dials. Pull out the Lock Post.
Your lock is ready to use.
6.The reset operation is now complete. Repeat
steps 1-5 anytime you wish to change your secret
combination.

I forgot my code


I have the same issue. I just bought a bike and dug out my old bike lock from college. Obviously the codes I'd being using now are not what I programmed my bike lock originally with. Any suggestions??
I've been trying to listen to the lock when I rotate the numbers and crack the code. Not a fun task.

We bought a schwinn bike lock last year.....of course threw away the instructions....it is locked (not on the bike)...is it possible t reset it somehow?


Try putting a lot of pressure as to open the lock on either end of the coupling. Turn the numbered cogs one by one feeling for the one that has the most resistance. The one with the most resistance is the one that is keeping it locked. Move this one forward or back until you can no longer feel resistance. Keep doing this for all the cogs. This may take some time.
After (if) you get it apart, look down the barrel as you move the numbers to find where the cogs are aligned as to put the lock back together with out locking it; i.e. the barrel is free of cogs. This should be all the same number, like 5. Once you have this number and the barrel free of cogs, there should be a switch at the end of the numbered barrel that you can flip up and over to the other side of the opening. Flip the switch, choose a new number that you can remember, and flip it back. This should be your new combination number. The lock should work now.
Good luck

Resetting combination bike lock


Try rotating locking device 180 degrees and hold it down and set combo to 0000, then let up on locking bar. That should clear the old combo. To reset, rotate the device 180 degrees and hold down while inserting your new 4 digit code and then release it.
