    after more research, ive found that this lock is prob not a novelty item,
    so i think maybe? IM WRONG
    the lock that akl439, has is prob a very old lock
    not a brain teaser, novelty item, that i thought it was
    have not found away to open it yet, still working on that

    proof of my mistake
    Letter Combination Locks

    the only thing i found out about it is........and underlined in red TRICK BOXES? see in jpeg
    TRICK BOXES? that makes me still. wonder about a code though. for a key word
    see jpg, if u cant read info on pg
    lock (security) :: Development of modern types. -- Britannica Online Encyclopedia


    maybe? the letter code on the tumblers, will still yeild away to open the lock



    the code

    Z E Z D Z E
    L U L A L I
    H C H B H Y
    G V G N Y V
    T K J O S K

    Default I cheat...

    ...have you tired attaching a stethoscope to the device, and 'listening' carefully to the tumblers?

    Otherwise you'd literally have to check EVERY letter combination. There's no reason to believe it will be a 'word', solution.
