Tips for using an image lock

December 17, 2014

An image combination lock is useful for your school locker, work locker, gym locker, bike, cabinet drawers, trunk or anything else that you'd like to keep safely stowed. A combination lock has never been this fun to open. Once you know your image combination codes, opening a combination lock is very easy and fun to use—just a couple turns to the left and right, and presto—the lock is open! If you want to know how to open a combination lock, just follow these steps.


Find the combination on the sticker that comes with the lock . Your new combination lock will come with a separate peace of paper on the back of the lock, telling you your lock's combination. Remove the paper carefully. Write down the combination codes or save it somewhere in case, if you have forgotten -- you don't want to leave the codes around in case someone else finds it and knows it's the combination to a lock.

  • Begin memorizing your new locker combination. Since image lock provides images. This will make it easier for you to consistently open the lock.
  • Turn the dial on the lock clockwise three times. Turn the dial to the right. This clears the lock and resets it so that it's ready to open.
  • Stop turning when the image of heart is under the line.The line should be at the top of the dial, pointing to the twelve o'clock position. it will be silver. The first image on this lock's combination is bird, so you should stop turning the dial when the marker points to that number.
  • Turn the dial back to the left for one full turn. Spin it counterclockwise one full turn, past the first image bird, then stop at the second image—in this case, star.
  • Turn the dial to the right. Finally, turn the dial clockwise again and stop at the last image on the paper—butterfly.
  • Open the lock. Pull up the shackle at the top of the lock, and it should open right up. You can also hold on to the shackle and pull down the lock.
    • If it doesn't open, repeat the process from the beginning. Once you've partially engaged the tumblers, you should clear out the lock before trying again.

Insert the shackle. Spin the shackle around so that the opened portion is above the hole, and push it into the opening at the top of the lock.

Spin the dial. Turn the dial in any direction for three turns. It doesn't matter what images you stop on. This process will disengage the tumblers and will make it so that you'll have to start all over again with the first number if you want to open it.

Test it. Make sure it's locked by pulling on the lock or shackle. If it opens, lock it again.



  • If you mess up, disengage on shackles by mistakes or pass first image; keep trying. It'll come to you sooner or later.
  • Placing tension on the shackle (the U-shaped part that holds the thing you want to lock) will place more friction on the mechanics of the lock. Just leave the shackle alone and you'll open the lock smoothly.
  • The more you do it, the easier it'll get!
  • If your lock is not opening even if you tried more than one time just check if its not hard when your turning it if it is hard than you need a new lock.
