Hello everyone!! This is my first instructable and I hope you like it.( please comment)
In this instructable I will share how to crack a masterlock padlock in 100 tries or less.( Helpful if you lost your combination)
FACT: most master\lock padlocks have around 64,000 possible combinations.
ANOTHER FACT: this instructable ( if done properly) will turn 64,000 into 100.
so go to step 1 and let's get started.
Step 1: What you need...
1: Masterlock Padlock
2: your brain
3: paper and pencil
Step 2: First find your third number
To find your third number reset the lock by turning the dial around a few times. Then start at 0 and turn to 3. after that pull the clamp up as hard as you can and move the dial left and right very little. Find a spot after zero and between 5 or 10 that the dial seems to be stuck. take the 2 numbers they stop on and get the middle number. For example the dial stops on 2 and 3. your number would be 2.5 or if you numbers were 2.5 and 3.5 your number would be 3. write these down. Not the ones I gave you but the ones you get. Repeat this around the dial until you get 12 different numbers. You have to get twelve or it wont work.
now that you have 14 numbers take away the ones that have decimal points.
and according to this list
now you should only have
6, 13, 16, 26, 36.
If you did it right you should have noticed that those 5 numbers have 4 numbers that have the same last digit take those away.
with this list I am left with 13.
that is my third number.
