Thanks Great work .

Your a legend... Worked within 2mins. Tension made the clicks loud
0005 is what I figured out. Took a couple minutes. - TommyT28
Wow that did the trick in less than 2 minutes.THANKS!!!
Beautiful.man just beautiful. Took me aprox. 3 minutes , the more tension the quicker it is done. Period. Thanks brother!
Thanks man took me 1 minute to figure it out :)P.S.this also works with word locks
It worked... And it did indeed open, violently. So violently it hit my face and chipped the right lens of my glasses.
Thanks so much, the tension with the chair did the trick! The lock opened before I got all 4 clicks, so I used a flashlight to align everything inside for the code and it works like a charm now. I was ready to buy a new lock too.
thanks man, the chair trick is brilliant, much better then holding down by feet ;-)In my case, it was one false hit and one good, on each wheel.What also helped me to find falce spots was rocking each digit on the wheel backward and forward, to feel the difference.So, definatly the chair, a pen and paper. Write down spots on each wheel, then try each combination of spots(writing each down to prevent repeat.. ;-) )Best for all.
Tension IS the answer. Seeing your example of wrapping it around a chair did not quite work, I needed MORE tension. I wrapped this MasterLock 8220 around a pipe clamp as far as it would stretch, after opening the pipe clamps tightener all the way I cut a 2x4 to fit inside the working ends of the pipe clamp. Tightened the pipe clamp stretched the cable as tighter than previous attempts. While it was very hard to rotate the numbers, there was absolutely no doubt when the right number was discovered. After more than several usuccessful frustating attempts I queried Google which led me to Your post, which provided the correct answer. Again I will mention to anyone who may have unsuccessful results even when tried exactly as descibed, the more Tension applied, the more amplified the "clicks" will sound and it will make the wheels much more tight when turning. But there will be ZERO doubt when you turn each wheel and hear the louder "Click". Thank You for Your post, most helpful
ThanksI got an old Kryptonite open by using your method to figure out the last 2 digits were 73 (False openings had me stuck on 84). I was about to start going through all 100 digits to figure out the first 2, but then I realized it was probably a birthday from '73. Sure enough, when I put in 19, the lock opened right away. I think everyone trying to crack a 4 digit lock should start with 19-- just to make sure and then get to work after if that does not start the code. You might get lucky!
I have an OnGuard lock very similar to the one pictured, but newer. I was shocked, this actually worked. The last method listed was the one that worked.
Ferric chloride is. Because the Fe is essentially stripped of its electrons by the Cl atoms attatched to it, the Fe becomes pretty strongly positive. So while Fe(III)Cl has no protons to donate, it can strip electrons off molecules and act as a lewis acid.I know you can get it on eBay and Amazon. As for brick-and-mortar shops...maybe try Fry's electronics or a science surplus store? I've never seen it on a shelf.
This works. The tensioning is the trick. I'm writing the combo down this time.
