Combination lock help

16
Found 8th Sep 2009
Well today my new case arrived today. However there is a problem I cannot open it. The combination lock when it arrived was set to 000 with a tapper proof strip of plastic in place. I removed the tag and tried to press the button but it wont unlock. Anyone know what the default combination locks are set to when they are new?

Thanks

The lock is similar to this.

Reminds me of the very first Only Fools And Horses lol.

I bet the information sheet on what the combination is locked inside the case.

Step 1
Pull the sliding side latch to the side, as you would if you were opening the briefcase normally. Holding the latch in position, lightly roll your fingers down over each numbered wheel to identify which one is the tightest. The tightest wheel will give the least when you gently tug on it with your fingertip.

Step 2
Set the tightest wheel to "0." Check the tightness of the other two wheels; if they still feel loose, click the zeroed lock to one and feel the other two wheels again. Keep going in this fashion until one of the other two wheels feels tight. When one of the other wheels becomes tight, the first wheel is set at the correct number.

Step 3
Move on to the second tightened wheel, continuing to hold the side latch in place. Set it at "0" and check the final loose wheel. Keep adjusting the second wheel, as you did with the first, until the third wheel feels tight.

Step 4
Set the final wheel at "0" and adjust it until the briefcase's top latches pop open. Make sure the sliding side latch is still being held in place.

Step 5
Reset the combination to numbers you'll remember in the future. Write them down and store them in a safe place, just in case.

yes... i can help you... it will be any number from 001 - 999. Glad to have helped

lol are you James Bond ?

have you tried 111?

maybe its "123"

Worth ringing the suppliers / manufacturers?

have you tried 111?



:thumbsup: or 222, 333 etc

Another possible way, it depends on the quality of the lock, is to push each wheel in turn to the side of the slot it is in and turn it while looking down the side at the axle

At one number on the wheel the axle will have a notch or be otherwise different to the rest of the numbers. This is usually the opening number.

PM sent... let me know if it works or not.

lol, I was actually being funny.. Was hoping for a reply "tried it, didn't work", then my reply was going to be "have you tried 112", to see how far I could get. :-D

LOL, I remember getting a set of suitcases where every lock was set at a different combination, one was 777, another was 000 etc, that confused me, it took me ages to fix them :lol:
