However, this will eat a lot of time in your part and it may cause you more inconvenience than comfort. Clear The Lock The first step in picking any lock is to set a standard starting point. I mean, you built your own freakin machine and for that I envy you. You should eliminate 7 of the 12 numbers with this step. I have 2 locks I found in a storage box that I had lost the combination to. If your magic number is 0 or 1, then add 2 to it.
Reapply the upward pressure on the shackle and once again try to rotate the dial counterclockwise. However, all the combinations I have tried using the calculator have failed. I feel absolutely no resistance anywhere near 1. For example, my numbers are 0, 10, 20, 27, and 30. I found the first locked position at 2. Peel this off to find the switch.
All of which end with 0, with the exception of 27. This won't work for many like those with serial numbers starting with 909, 910 etc. I got it by the traditional advice of writing down all 12 midpoints, then discounting the. Test them all until one works with the standard instructions below. Once per rotation it should stick. Sometimes, your cheapest option is to figure out the combination.
I also have had other people try it. Going to a high school I am now in college where every single locker had a master lock on it, it was only natural to figure out a way to crack them. An attacker can still turn through it but will physically feel the resistance. If you lost the combination to your Master Lock and your lock has a serial number, you can find the combination for your lock by sending a form to Master Lock. Try every possible combination until you find the right one.
You can use any combination of up, down, right, or left as you want. Combining those two methods would give you 10 tries. Ironically, you can use sheer force in opening this lock, if it is not machined properly. If you need more help, just use us to find a. This lock is painted to look like the old ones, but that is where the similarity ends.
It took a bit of time but once I realized how much tension I needed to feel the stops I hit my numbers. Found this master lock in the parking lot of my old apartment complex like 2 years ago. I totally felt like I did the whole instructions thing wrong because nothing really felt for sure like it was truly resistant, but anyway. Turn left one full turn passing 1st number and stop at Second Digit. Now what really made us proud was when we created the keys that went in the back of the locks. You just tell it where the dial gets stuck. Your counterclockwise stopping point would then be 8.
In my case the remainder was 3 and as I continuously add four I result with the numbers 3. Then when I put in the resistance location which is quite obviously 31, there are still no combo options that come close. I was so sure I half remembered my combo and would recognize it. On another site there's a thing about finding 12 locked position going counterclockwise. This location represents the resistance location.
The combo is 14-32-6 with the first two locked positions at 6 then 9. I tried the technique, fully believing it was full of crap. In our case we are left with 0, 10, 20, 27, and 30. Find the last number of the combination. Can I calculate them or guess them? Kamkar eventually discovered the final piece, when the first and the last digit always yield a remainder of four when divided. Additionally, be sure to stop the rotation at the zero mark as well.
Identify if your master lock has a serial number. I just kept at it until I had the accurate numbers to input in the calculator. I feel resistance at 20 - must have done this 50 times, but the first number is a 6 so resistance should have been at 1. I'm running in to some similar problems. A range of 4 and 5 would have a first sticking point of 4. After that it took about 5 minutes. I know the combination and it gets the first and second numbers correct but not the third.
