How to Reset a Squire CP1 Combination Padlock
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.
Turn the dials on your Squire CP1 Combination Padlock to your current combination. Press the shackle release button on the bottom of the lock body to open the shackle.
Slide the "Reset" button cover on top of the lock body toward the lock face to reveal the hole.
