The lock in hand:





I've had this thing forever and haven't used it because while I was resetting it the numbers got twisted around. I probably should have tried to remember the combo on the spot but I brushed it off and never looked back. Anyways I would like to be able to use it again, and would like to crack the combo. Anyone have experience with this or have any tips? You'll have to excuse the crappy cell phone pic

It's a 4 digit pelilock


EDIT: It's not any password I use, it's a completely random series of numbers

10000 possible combinations. Go.

ETA: You could try using a thin needle to find out where the open spots are.

1,2,3,4

I use it on all my luggage.

We can omit 0000, 1111, 2222, ..., 9999, 0111, 0222, ..., 0999, etc and all combinations where 3 numbers are the same as I seriously doubt the OP used those.

OP:  can you explain what you mean by "the numbers got twisted around"?  Did you rub the wheels in the palm of your hand or what?

curious if this works and if that applies to all TSA approved locks.

Didn't work

As of now I guess I'll try 1000 or so a day until I figure it out
Link Posted: 10/28/2010 2:27:26 PM EDT
create a spreadsheet and as mentioned earlier disregard all the same number combos, or for example 1222, 1112, 8898, unless you feel that you may have used combinations like that... then just delete from the checklist.  it will make life easy.

The 3 digit ones take about 15 minutes to try all 1000 combos.  Figure 2.5 hours tops for a 4 digit, assuming you don't get bored.

I'll give you the locksmith's trick for that type of lock.
Have someone hold the body in a big pair of vice grips or pliers, pulling gently away from you holding the "ring" with another set. As you're pulling apart, with the "notch/lock" end of the "ring" facing up, smack the ring repeatedly with a dull-blow hammer.
Lock should pop right open. Works on most locks (except for Master brand).

Can we turn this thread into a game thread and the person that guesses the correct combo wins a prize?

feel for slight changes in the resistance to rotating each combination wheel while you lightly pull up on the shackle. You will feel when each wheel 'sets'. Don't expect them to set in stacked order. Similar to a pin tumbler lock, the tolerance gap varies for each wheel.

I love those "guess the next number in the sequence" games, but this one was a tad easy.

Four digits would suck!

I found an old cheap safe I had as a kid that had a 3 digit combo.  No idea what the combo was, much less what I put in there.

Finally cracked it on a 9xx number.     (No, nothing exciting, no DAY 1...It had my first paystub and a bunch of old junior high school stuff in it.)

I'm not sure if this technique would work on your lock, but if you want to watch an extremely boring 6 minute video about "shimming" a master lock, here ya go: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ipMi6ryESqk
 
Link Posted: 10/28/2010 3:15:38 PM EDT
we used those all the time,  when I need to figure out the combination I would gently pull up on the latch with a finger in the lock,  and turn each wheel one at a time from the top down,  when you find the right number,  the wheel will usually have a free spot in it and sometimes the latch will move a little.
Link Posted: 10/28/2010 3:25:40 PM EDT
I've opened a few of those.

Rotate the bottom dial, at each number tug on the shackle. If you see the dial move, it's not in the right position. Work your way up. On the last dial it will pop open.

This lock may be better trying the bottom up.

This is the right technique.   Some locks may have the order in which the wheels find the notch in random order.  While pulling on the shackle, find which wheel finds the notch first.  Then proceed to find the next one and so-on.  Should take about 20 minutes or less for one not experience with this.

I want to buy one of these locks just to try this now.

The number belonged to a plumbing company, not sure if it still does.

It does.
They advertise all the time here.

Got any friends who work in a hospital or dentist's office?





A few x-rays taken from the right angle will help you to figure out the combination.    Take one, move a cylinder, take another.  You'll soon figure out what numbers on the cylinders are the right ones.

The easist way with that kind of lock is to start at 0000 and while pulling it open slightly just start going through the numbers on the last dial, when you get back to 0 click the number to the left up one. When you hit 0 on a dial just move the one next to it up one number and just keep doing that until you hit the right combo. It goes a hell of a lot faster than it sounds you can go through every possible combo in just a few minutes that way.
