How to open a Combination Lock

To open a combination lock, read the instructions on the lock for the order of rotation that is needed. For example, if the instructions say to rotate both dials three times before going to the next step, you would rotate the dials three times in both directions and then go to the next step.

If you have a personal lock with a combination, try experimenting with different numbers until you find one that it works. It’s also possible that your lock might not be working because it’s been broken or tampered with so you should get it checked by someone who knows how to work with locks.

Depending on the type of lock you have, you may need to rotate your dials separately or together. If they are separate, read through the locking mechanism to understand how many times each dial must be rotated before moving onto the next step.

Use a methodical system when opening your combination lock. For example, if you’re using a combination lock to open a padlock, you would first rotate the dials until your have a single digit other than 0.

Then you would rotate each of the two dials that number of times. For example, if your combination was 1-2-1, then you would first turn both dials until they read 2 and then turn both dials again until they read 1.

If you’re still not able to find your combination, take a step back and go through the steps one by one again.

Make sure that you don’t accidentally skip any steps when going through it a second time or take breathers in between locking mechanism changes.

You should also try using a different finger to turn the dials.

So this is how you can open a Combination Lock.
