How to Open a 3-Dial Combination Lock Case in 6 Minutes or Less

Sharing buttons:

hi i'm ryan from cannibal musical

instruments i want to show you how in

six minutes or less to get into a case

that's been locked for the combination

that you don't know just a brief

overview this is our clarinet our

professional clarinet case it's similar

to a lot of briefcases in that it has

this three digit tumbler lock on each of

two different latches briefly this is

how they work you said it the

combination this one set to zero zero

zero pull it out on the lock the latch

opens and in the case if you want to

change the combination you push in on it

set it force first set it to your

combination push in on the on the button

and set it to whatever you want say

double-oh-seven is your new combination

let go it'll open to that and then set

it to any other number and you can't

open it now the scenario is your kid's

been playing with this he's accidentally

set the numbers to something different

you have no idea what it is and you need

to get into your case so what you need

to do is there there are a thousand

different possible combinations honestly

the easiest way to do it is not removing

hardware not hack sawing anything you

don't need any sort of hacking materials

you can try at all thousand combinations

in six minutes or less and there's an

easy way to do it of course this one's

set to double-oh-seven lets said it's

something a little bit more random of

course i already know what it is here so

we'll set it to three five seven stay


what's your kid accidentally sent it to

set it to you so what you're going to do

is set it to start at zero zero zero and

you're gonna try each number one at a

time but you don't have to go zero zero

zero try zero zero one try what you want

to do is put constant outward pressure

on this lock always be pulling out on

the button here because when you get to

your combination it will automatically

open if you're keeping that pressure on

so you're starting at zero zero hold the

pressure on and go one two three four

five six seven eight nine zero then set

the next one over to 10 11 12 13 14 15

16 17 and so forth and so on here we'll

just go through

the 20s here's make sure it's set right

there's the 30s and you're just rolling

right through them there we've gone

through fifty already so once we get

into the 300s like I said you can scroll

through these pretty quick here say

we're at the three 40s one two three

four five six seven eight nine zero

three fifty one two three four five six

seven and when you get to that number

it'll pop open because you're holding

that pressure out there you don't need

to tear anything apart and like I said

you can go through all thousand numbers

in less than six minutes and generally

if it's not set to nine nine nine

you'll get there a lot faster than that

thank you
