**FINDING THE LAST NUMBER**

On older Master Locks, ones where the arrow
at the top is raised, simply pull on the shackle and turn
the dial until it catches, that's the third number in the
combination.

On new locks with the recessed arrow, there
are twelve places the dial will catch if you turn it while
pulling on the shackle. Seven of these will catch between
two numbers, ignore these, and find the the five that catch
on a number. Four of these will end in the same digit, i.e,
1, 11, 21, and 31. The fifth ends with a different digit,
and is the third number in the combination.

**FINDING THE FIRST & SECOND NUMBER**

Using the last number, locate it in the "last
number chart" below to see which table to use to find
the possible first and second numbers. Try each of the number
combinations until the lock opens. Example: If the last number
is 31 then you must use Table C according to the chart. That
means you must try the following combinations:
