This little instructable will demonstrate how to narrow down the possible combinations for your lock from over 60,000 to 80. This is good for if you lose "your" combination.

Step 1: Knowing thy lock.

Before you find your numbers, you must know a few things about your lock.

First of all, there is a dial, a body, and a clasp (The U shaped thing on the top that comes out when unlocked).

When you open your lock you would normally spin the dial right a few times to reset, then go to your first number. Then, you would turn left, passing your first number once, then stopping on your second number. Finally, you would turn right again to your third, and final number and pull on clasp.

Okay, now you know thy lock.
