Have you ever had a Master Lock but forgot the combination? Here is an easy tutorial on how to find a lost code. Caution: The newer Master Locks may or may not work. It is much more difficult to distinguish the difference between the different sticky numbers in the newer models.

Find the last number of the combination by finding the "sticky numbers"

Pull out the top loop of your Master Lock while turning the dial

There are about 12 spots where the Master Lock locks into place, these are the sticky numbers

There are 7 “sticky numbers” that lock in-between two number dashes, ignore these

There are 5 “sticky numbers” that lock in-between the half-way points between two numbers, record these numbers

One of these numbers’ last digit is different from the other four, keep this number, it is the last number in the combination

NOTE: The 5 sticky numbers might be difficult to figure out, make sure the correct sticky numbers follow these directions.

Find the first number in the combination by using "modulus 4"

Figure out the highest possible multiple of 4 with out exceeding the last number in the combination

Find the positive difference between the two numbers, this is the new number “x”

Add “x” to 4 to come up with the new number “y”, record “y”

Record “x”

Add 4 to “y” as many times as possible without exceeding 39, record these numbers

You should have recorded 10 numbers

These are the possible choices for the 1

^{st}number in the combination

Find the second number in the combination by following the applicable directions below:

If “x” is 0 than turn it into 2, this is the new “x”, proceed to direction #4

If “x” is 1 then turn it into 3, this is the new “x”, proceed to direction #4

If “x” is 2 then turn it into 0, this is the new “x”, proceed to direction #4

If “x” is 3 then turn it into 1, this is the new “x”, proceed to direction #4

Find the second number in the combination by using modulus 4

Add “x” to 4 to come up with the new number “y”, record “y”

Record “x”

Add 4 to “y” as many times as possible without exceeding 39, record these numbers

You should have recorded 10 numbers

These are the possible choices for the 2

^{nd}number in the combination

There are now 100 possible combinations out of the theoretical 64,000 combinations, write out the possibilities and try them out on the lock.

Relax and good luck

MAKE SURE YOU WRITE DOWN THE COMBINATIONS THAT YOU HAVE ALREADY TRIED SO YOU DON’T FORGET THE CORRECT COMBINATION WHEN YOU FIND IT!!!
