How to set your own password？
1. Use the default password 0000 to open the lock.
Please make sure all numbers aligned with the arrows otherwise the lock cannot open. There are some buyers said they cannot open the lock because they have not set the numbers on the exact place.
2. Notice the keyhole is facing up. Turn it to the right to horizontal position (90 degrees).
3. Set numbers to whatever code you want, making sure to keep the numbers aligned with the arrow. And remember your new numbers or write down them. Last, turn the keyhole back to upright position. There are many people forget to turn it back so they cannot successfully set new password or cannot open the lock.
