Types of combination padlocks
Basic combination lock (one-dial) – This type of combination lock uses a three-digit code that consists of numbers only. These padlocks are cheap and sometimes resettable but prone to cracking.
Resettable combination padlocks (three-dial) – The user sets the code that consists of letters, numbers, or both. Codes can be reset.
Resettable combination padlocks (four or five-dial) – Just like the previous type, the 4 or 5-dial combination padlocks require the user to set the code. It uses letters, numbers, or both, and the code can be changed. However, this type has a larger number of possible combinations than the 3-dial type.
The code comes with the 1-dial padlock, although you can set it. Some of them even come with a manual for setting the code. Once you have set the combination, you can use it with a chain or on a locker. The shackle passes through an opening.
To open the combination padlock, you then need to enter the combination and spin the dial to the right to stop the arrow on the first number. Spin the dial back to the left, stopping the arrow on the second number. Eventually, spin it back to the right stopping the arrow on the third number. Then the padlock will snap open.
You employ the same technique as in the 1-Dial padlock. Slide the shackle over or around the item to secure it. This type of combination lock is similar to the locks found on briefcases. Once you set the code, the lock is unlocked by properly lining the numbers in order. Each dial consists of a set list of letters or dials. The code is the arrangement of those numbers or digits. Once you have lined up the set dials, the shackle clicks open.
