How to Pick Master Locks
By Gin Fizz & Ninja NYC
Have you ever tried to impress your friends by picking one of those Master
combination locks and failed? Well then read on. The Master lock company has
made this kind of lock with a protection scheme. If you pull the handle of it
hard, the knob won’t turn. That was their biggest mistake…… Ok, now on to
1st number. Get out any of the Master locks so you know what’s going on.
1: The handle part (the part that springs open when you get the combination),
pull on it, but not enough so that the knob won’t move. 2: While pulling on it
turn the knob to the left until it won’t move any more. Then add 5 to this
number. Congradulations, you now have the 1st number.
2nd number. (a lot tougher) Ok, spin the dial around a couple of times,
then go to the 1st number you got, then turn it to the right, bypassing the 1st
number once. WHEN you have bypassed. Start pulling the handle and turning it.
It will eventually fall into the groove and lock. While in the groove pull on
it and turn the knob. If it is loose go to the next groove; if it’s stiff you
got the second number.
3rd number: After getting the 2nd, spin the dial, then enter the 2 numbers,
then after the 2nd, go to the right and at all the numbers pull on it. The lock
will eventually open if you did it right. If can’t do it the first time, be
patient, it takes time.

Commentary: The thing about black bag jobs and surreptitious entries into your homes, apartmnts, and life, is that you just know. You just know that something is out of place, something is just not right. And even the best of the best lock pickers leave the lock too loose, or too tight-and none of them remember which side of the line you left your combination lock, much less which number you left it on.
