Question about Cycling
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.

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.

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.

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.
