@Boredered: I think it says "Stops" as in, the lock will stop at 12 different places.

"Ditto, the "7 of these numbers will be between two digits" part makes no sense at all."

What it means is, the numbers will be in between, like some would be in between say, 6 and 7. Six and a half wouldnt work so you cut those out

So what`s the overly-elaborate tedious procedure that stops the owner from shoving your own fist up yourself when he catches you 10 minutes into this fun little endeavour?

I have to use a combination lock on my work locker since I have a bad habit of locking my keys in my car when I`m there. After having to cut off *FIVE* padlocks with bolt cutters so I could get my spare car key out of my purse I figured the combo lock was the way to go. Sucks.

Doesn`t work on Dudley locks because they automatically wont turn when you put pressure on

also, taylor stone gives the more appropriate answer

"Step 1: Take a large stone chisle and place on top of the lock at a downward angle.

Step 2: Hit said chisle with large hammer.

Step 3: Take the rest of the week off."

Awesome. So if you are always carrying a hammer and chisel in your pants, you`re obviously not happy to see me. DX

if you REALLY want to get it open (like to lock pedo bear in) and you don`t have a hammer, just use my molding key (only if it`s a master lock)

yeah like with most combination bike locks you just have to pull on it while trying each number and it will pull out every time you get one right.

"AB is raising a little batch of criminals I see."
Yeah, because a criminal is going to go through a hundred combinations to open a lock when he can just hit the top of it with a hammer .... Not to mention you could also just shim it.

Richard Feynman explained this stuff years (and years, and years) ago in his "Surely you`re joking, Mr. Feynman!". That is to say, this innovative approach is older than the atom bomb.

jjohno`s link very briefly mentions the best method, use a shim. Faster than cracking (not picking, there`s a difference), even faster than a bolt cutter if you know what you`re doing.

and DGbME, I HAVE done it with bolt cutter on several occasions... They make it hard, yes, but it CAN be done and its still WAY faster than trying the combination method.

To those that said `bolt cutters`: have you ever tried to cut a lock with bolt cutters? I bet not or you would not have suggested it. It don`t happen all easy breezy like in the movies/TV. When they make the locks they test to be sure you cannot cut them with bolt cutters.

I usually just spin the dial around as though I know the numbers. On the cheap locks, if you do it fast enough and are in the general area of the number (say within 10 digits or so), the lock will pop open.

You know, I work for the Associated Locksmiths of America (ALOA), and that ain`t how you do it.

With my luck I`d still get caught trying to open the lock with 100 possibilities (never mind the 64,000 possibilities)...lol

"Or just turn and listen to the small clicks."

This. Works on my crappy combo that is on the back gate when I forget the numbers to unlock it. (Hey, its something I only do about once a year after all)

I don`t know how effective it would be on a decent lock though.

Also, When you get the 1st or 2nd number the latch will perceptively `loosen` because only one reel is holding the latch from opening.

I`ve opened these in less than 2 minutes, They are not trustworthy as a locking device in my opinion.

I just tried it. The only hard part is figuring out where the lock sticks exactly. I didn`t actually go through all the combinations, but the right numbers were on my list.

hyybrucewayn - I believe so, I tried it on my lock at school (which I knew the combination to), and it clicked on the right ones, so I guess it does.

What exactly does "7 of these numbers will be between two digits" mean?

I have a lock to try it, but the directions are a bit confusing.
