    Default York Combination Dial

    Does anyone know how the numbers on the sides of the York combination dial work in dialing the correct combination (0, 20, 40, 60, 80)?

    They are for reference while dialing fast so that you donít pass your number. The line that runs around the dial lines up to the index so if index show 20 the line should be on 20 on the side of dial ring.

    Years ago I heard a nickname for these dials, does anybody know? I think it was "hypnotic" but I'm not sure.

    Diebold's terminology; "Rapid Dial"

    I've heard it referenced as the hypnotic dial.

    It changes like any other key change lock, except it is a zero change lock.
