Combination Lock Dialing Instructions

 

For Modern 3 Wheel Locks made by Sargent & Greenleaf, LaGard and Kaba-Ilco

 

 

Important: Dialing your numbers must be accurate. Going past the number and then backing up will prevent the lock from opening.

 

1: Turn the dial 4 times to the left (counter-clockwise) stopping when the 1st number appears at the opening mark for the 4th time.

Step 2: Turn the dial 3 times to the right (clockwise) stopping when the 2nd number appears at the opening mark for the 3rd time.

Step 3: Turn the dial 2 times to the left (counter-clockwise) stopping when the 3rd number appears at the opening mark for the 2nd time.

Step 4: Gently turn the dial to right (clockwise) until dial comes to a dead stop (approximately at 95). If dial turns more than one revolution, an error has been made and you will need to start again.

IMPORTANT
