We have a homeless ministry and donate bikes to those in need. A lady gave us a lock she found after her father died & it did not have the code. Is there a reset for WordLock Secure Bike Lock?

Hello, Peggy -

Apparently Wordlock combination locks use 4 letters and 5 letters for their codes.

This is a link to an instructive YouTube video on how to "crack" a 4 letter Wordlock code:

If the lock your ministry has been given is a 5 letter code, then just follow the video instructions and add a 5th step.

Also, if you or another adult finds breaking the code a bit of a challenge, I suspect a teen might be skillful in cracking the code. :)

Once the code is cracked, make sure to write it down. You can use a piece of masking tape and write the code down and tape it around the cable.

This is a link to written instructions for resetting the word code for a 4 letter Wordlock:

If the lock is has a 5 letter code, the written instructions can be modified for 5 letters.

Then, the written instructions can be printed and packaged (placed in "zipper lock" plastic bag) with the Wordlock bike lock and cable for a new owner.

Best wishes.

SOURCE: resetting combination bike lock

Try rotating locking device 180 degrees and hold it down and set combo to 0000, then let up on locking bar. That should clear the old combo. To reset, rotate the device 180 degrees and hold down while inserting your new 4 digit code and then release it.

SOURCE: we bought a schwinn bike lock last year.....of

Try putting a lot of pressure as to open the lock on either end of the coupling. Turn the numbered cogs one by one feeling for the one that has the most resistance. The one with the most resistance is the one that is keeping it locked. Move this one forward or back until you can no longer feel resistance. Keep doing this for all the cogs. This may take some time.
After (if) you get it apart, look down the barrel as you move the numbers to find where the cogs are aligned as to put the lock back together with out locking it; i.e. the barrel is free of cogs. This should be all the same number, like 5. Once you have this number and the barrel free of cogs, there should be a switch at the end of the numbered barrel that you can flip up and over to the other side of the opening. Flip the switch, choose a new number that you can remember, and flip it back. This should be your new combination number. The lock should work now.
Good luck

SOURCE: I forgot my code

I have the same issue. I just bought a bike and dug out my old bike lock from college. Obviously the codes I'd being using now are not what I programmed my bike lock originally with. Any suggestions??
I've been trying to listen to the lock when I rotate the numbers and crack the code. Not a fun task.

My Mother has the VS-5003R big screen television that she purchased back in 1990. the television portion works fine but the ext-1 and ext-2 inputs are locked from a code that probably died with my father...

I have the same tv and same issue. I found chain of notes indicating that you can clear the lock by pressing 9-QV (two buttons) on the original remote at the same time. This works... however if you change the input again the EXT1 and EXT2 inputs will be locked again. It would be really nice if you can remove the lock feature completely.

I do not know what part is # 69270460, it does not come in my part list. if it is the power supply socket on your keyboard, then it should be quite an easy task, providing that you have experience in soldering electronics. Todo the job you will probably need Casio schematics and service manual for 555L.
This website ask to do a donation to charity and will send the schematics. Give them (or ask the ladies) proof of recent donation to charity.
Alternatively this website sells schematics and service manual for a price between $10 and $20.
