How do combination locks work?
The typical combination lock has a combination dial that is attached to a spindle. Inside the lock, the spindle runs through several wheels and a drive cam. Each wheel on the spindle has a notch cut into it. When the right combination is dialed, all the wheels and their notches line up perfectly.
How do you open a combination lock if you forgot the code?
Pull up gently on the shackle and hold it in place. Turn the dial clockwise listening carefully until you hear the lock click. Start with a good deal of pressure and gently let up as you spin it around, until you meet resistance in only one place. If the dial catches every few numbers, you are pulling too hard.

Are combination locks safe?
Wrapping Up. So, yes it’s true: combination locks are less secure than keyed locks.

Can combination locks be reset?
