Lock Hero

Lock Hero


Combination locks are a great way to keep personal belongings safe. Unfortunately, the combination is sometimes lost or forgotten. Sometimes, this leads to perfectly good locks being tossed away. Other times, the lock must be destroyed to gain access. In the past, recovering a forgotten combination would have required the services of a professional locksmith. Lock Hero allows regular people to recover their lost or forgotten combination themselves. The lock can be saved and reused. Plus, there's no need to pay for the services of a professional.

The standard combination padlock has a 40-position dial requiring users to enter three values. If a person were to search for the combination by testing all 64,000 possibilities, it would take a very long time. Fortunately, the popular brand's combination locks have a mechanical flaw. This allows Lock Hero to narrow down the number of possibilities to 99. There are two steps to the process, and the entire procedure should take less than one half-hour. With experience, most locks can be opened in less than 15 minutes.

Lock Hero works with the popular brand of combination locks. Most off-brands are not supported. Very old locks are also not supported. Master your lock!

works, removes the guesswork, could be better Much easier than the paper and pencil method because it takes the uncertainty out of trying to decide, is that 26 or 25.5 when it's really a range from 24.3 to 25.3 or something. I cracked my lock in 4 minutes because I kinda remembered the combination – first and third numbers were the same, and the middle was a multiple of five. out But this is actually my criticism of the app, that a lot of the people who might use it are exactly those who have some dim partial memory of a combination – but the app does NOT show you a list of the possible combinations but rather presents them one by one. I just scrolled through them till I found something that seemed familiar, and got lucky that it occurred early, but the app should optionally display the whole winnowed list of combinations so people can scan it for familiar faces.

Worked but could improve I already did my lock using a pen and paper and math. I wanted to see if the app would make it easier. Which it def does by having all the possible combos. One error is you list combos that wouldn't actually be combos because there are only 64 possibilities not 100 because there needs to be a certain gap between the 2nd and 3rd numbers to work. I wish there was also a table available to see all combos at once instead of clicking through the app.

LOCK HERO IS A GREAT TOOL I purchased a lock and tried what the instructions said to do. The lock was opened less than 15 minutes. You have to enter the twelve points accurately. Never looked at the combination of the lock until it was open.

It really works I had to adjust some of the "stops" after the app said there was an issue but once you make the proper adjustments it gives you a series of possible combinations. It does take a while to go through them if the right combination is one of the last presented but IT REALLY WORKS. I just opened two old Master locks. It saved me from borrowing my neighbor's bolt cutters and buying new locks. Have patience and it should work.
