3 Wheel Combination Instructions
Please read the whole of the following instructions before operating the lock or changing the combination
In Figure 1 below, you will see two index marks printed on the dial ring. Index mark A is to be used to open the lock and index mark B to change the combination.
Always turn the dial slowly and evenly. Each time you align the combination number with an index mark, it is considered one revolution is completed. If you over dial do not turn the dial back to compensate, merely restart the sequence from the beginning.

Changing the combination of a 3 Wheel Combination lock
You may select three new combination numbers. For the last number, DO NOT use any number between 0 and 20. For maximum security, do not use numbers that end in 0 or 5, and do not use numbers in ascending or descending order. For example, 27-86-48 is more secure than 27-48-86.
WARNING: Never insert the change key into the lock while the cover is removed. Before turning the change key, ensure that the wing of the key is fully inserted into the lock.
- Dial the current combination to open the lock using index mark A and open the container door.
See above the instructions on ‘Unlocking the lock with the preset combination’ or ‘Unlocking the lock with a three-number combination’.
- Dial the current combination again using index mark B.
Note: It night be helpful to cover A with tape when changing the combination
- With the last number aligned with index mark B, hold the dial securely in place so that it does not turn. Insert the change key into the keyhole in the back of the lock.
- Ensure that the wing of the key is completely inside the lock and comes to a positive stop, then turn the key 90⁰ counter clockwise (see Figure 2).
