    Enter the current code using the four combination wheels. If you have never changed the combination before, the current code is the factory preset 0-0-0-0.

  2. 2

    Push the reset pin through the holes on the outside end of the combination lock. Turn the pin to the right to align the two yellow lines on the end and the main body of the lock.

  3. 3

    Keeping the pin in place, turn the combination wheels until your desired combination is in place. You may choose any four-digit number.

  4. 4

    Turn the reset pin to the left until it pops free. Remove the pin.

Tips and warnings

  • If you do not have the reset pin, you may be able to reset the combination using a flat-headed screwdriver.
  • If you forget your combination, you will not be able to reset the lock again.
