How to Open the Combination Lock Without the Code
When we don’t use the combination lock for a long time, we may forget the combination. How can you get into your locker without breaking the lock?
1. Practice pressure
First, phase the dial side of the lock to yourself, then gently pull up on the shackle. Too much pressure will cause the dial impossible to turn. Too little pressure will make the dial spin freely. You need to master gentle pressure by making contact. This will probably take some practice.
2. Find the first number
Gently pull up the shackle and secure it to the position you practiced before, then carefully turn the dial until you hear a locking click. Then this number plus 5 will be the first password.
This is not an easy task and you may encounter several situations.
- It should only catch in one place, making a clicking sound. If the dial catches every few digits, you are pulling too hard. If you find that it doesn’t catch for a full turn, then you should be not pulling hard enough.
- If you find that the click is between two numbers, then select the larger number plus 5
- If the number plus 5 exceeds the largest number on the code dial, then you only need to take the single digit of the result.
3. Find the second number
Before proceeding with this step, you need to take the first number you find as a starting point. Then keeping gentle pressure, slowly turn the dial. Again, when you hit the correct digit, you will feel the bump and jam. This will be the second digit.
4. Try the combination
Once you have determined the first two digits, you are ready to start testing. You can slowly turn the dial to make sure you can test every possible combination. During the test, you will need to pull repeatedly to make sure you don’t miss the correct number.
