    Default Need help finding JBMKL Co Master Special combination Code


    I recently acquired this JBMKL Co “Master Special” lock from an online auction. It had a scrap of paper attached with some numbers on it that I hoped would be enough of a clue to open the lock. Sadly, no luck.

    With that said, I am hoping someone on this forum can once again help me out with a combination or enough clues to get me where I need to go. Some observations about this lock:

    1. The number on the front of the shackle is 622
    2. The number under the hoop of the shackle is 213
    3. The lock has a left-hand stop
    4. Turning the dial 1 to 7 clicks to the right results in ability to only turn the same number back to the left. Turning dial 8 clicks to the right results in ability to turn one click to the left, 9r = 2L, 10r = 3L, etc. This negates any combination where the second number (left) is larger than the first.

    Please let me know if you have any questions or if this should have been started in a new thread. Thanks in advance!

    Default Combination found

    I was able to obtain code books and look up the combination myself. Thanks to anyone who may have looked on my behalf.
