Default Master brand combination lock default number?

A long while ago I bought one of the Master brand boxes to store a key in
outside, the type with a little lid and a 4 digit combination lock, I forgot
about it till recently, unfortunately I have forgotten the original default
unlock number. I have tried the obvious ones (0000, 1111 0123, 1234 etc.),
but the question is has anyone got the packaging or remember the default
number for the lock. B and Q sell them, as do screwfix, toolstation etc.

You can easily feel the wheels drop into the correct places, if you put
light pressure on the lock whilst turning the dials. Start with the
wheel which has most resistance upon it, whilst pressing the lock
apart.

It only takes about 20 minutes to try them all...


Combination locks usually are set as 0000 as default. If you have lost it
and it's a 4 digit lock, , the combination is 10x10x10x10 or 10,000 posible
combinations - rather more that 20 mins I suspect.

I have tried this, but the wheels are recessed, as is the release handle.
I'll have to visit ba nd q and hope there is one already open. At the
moment it is taking the place of a rubiks cube, everyone trying
combinations!!

Cheap combination locks are easy to suss

As was mentioned before, you can feel the positions if you put the lock
under a bit of pressure

Master brand aren't cheap combinations locks - they are American and top
