The Squire CP1 Combination Padlock is a four-dial padlock. It opens after you turn the dials on the padlock to align to match a set combination. The Squire CP1 is a resettable padlock, which means that you can realign the four dials to a new combination at any time. Making the change isn't difficult--Squire has designed the CP1 Combination Padlock with a simple, easy-to-access reset button located inside a hole at the top of the lock body.
