    Default Gougler keyless padlock combination?

    I have a Gougler keyless padlock, and I don't know the combination. Can anyone help me out? The number on the back of the lock is B250. Thanks, Ben

    These particular models (the 200 and RD200 and I assume the 201) defy the known codes but sometimes only by a little. These usually have a dial stop if you turn it right. Turn until it stops, then dial the combination left-right-left-right.

    The "50" part of B250 suggests the last three numbers are 2-6-5 but getting the first number is where things can fall down. I would suggest right to stop, then left 6, right 2, left 6, right 5. If that doesn't work try all possible number of clicks at the start, from 1 to 9. If none of that works you might be out of luck.

    Just FYI here is an ad for this style of lock:

    You were right: L-6, R-2, L-6, R-5. Thanks for the help!

    I'm a bit confused now, as I tried before to get combinations for 2 of these locks...
    I have several, but am now not sure of which # to submit???
    there are 2 sets of numbers on the back, one set on top & the other is on the bottom..
    Which ones do I submit to you for a "code"
    The last time we tried, I sent the bottom numbers in & we got nowhere on the 2 locks that I'm referring to..........I'm asking Ben which # he used to get results...thanks, Donnie

    Diferent Gouglers put the code in diferent places. Most often it's on the shackle, in early cases on the "under" side of the shackle at the top. In quite a few cases the available known code lists have holes in them.

    But locks that were made in a group for a school or factory seem to use codes that were separate, and probably spelled out in a codebook that was supplied to the buyer, and for these the "standard" codes do not work. There may be a code on the shackle that describes the combination, plus a code on the body that is like a serial number for the lock (and could be used to track it back to the owner or locker).

    In the current example it was stamped on the back of the lock and was a standard factory code (or close enough).

    BTW I ran across a YouTube video showing the demolition of the Kent factory buildings last year. Search for "gougler demolition" without the quote marks.

    Were the numbers really small ? like smaller than this type font? Or larger like Newspaper type size?? Most of my locks have 2 sets of #'s larger one's at the top & really small ones at the bottom.....THEN THERE ARE 2 THAT HAVE #"s ON THE SHACKLE....
    Like 11629 & the other is 21454.... these are round faced locks with 18 stops. not the longer ones with a key access hole in the bottom......Donnie

    Default Desperate for code to miller keyless lock

    Just wandering if someone might could help me (in any way) with the code to my lock. It is a Miller keyless lock Kent Ohio. It has the number 5503 on the front of the shackle. It has a left stop. I would love any information on the code to this. I have been going through all possible combos, hoping to get lucky. I've been through all 3 digit and 4 digit. I have gone about 3/4 of the way through 5 digit combos. My fingers have blisters on them, and I'm sore all the way up to my shoulders. Not joking! Something I don't understand: I seen on some website where a combo to a left stop lock was R4 L8 for the first 2 turns. How could you go back 8 if you only went forward 4? I can only go back as many clicks as I go forward, up to 10. When I go 11 clicks, then I can only go back 4. It's like it trips. Another question, could the number of clicks be higher than 9? Any help PLESE!

    Default gougler keyless lock

    Hi, is your lock body round with 18 clicks & a small number on the bottom rear of the case?
    I am unsure of what lock you are working on... can you provide a photo front & rear?

    Guys...


    I do not mean to be rude but this here is the Antique Locks forum and not the How to manipulate or bypass locks forum. We mainly talk about history here and not on how to manipulate or bypass locks even if they may not be in use any longer. If your questions would however help to better security of a product that is still distributed I am sure it would be okay but this is not the case.

    So if you want to talk about manipulation or how to crack these locks how about joining a forum where these matters are discussed frequently :)?
    If you do not know where to go just pass me a pm and I may lead you in the right direction.

    Again, we are talking about HISTORY here!
    If you do do not want to talk about history you are obviously in the wrong place.


    Adrian
