Re: Help S&G 8077

According to the instructions, which are for all 8077 variants, the key hole is closed before the lock is opened again. The key hole cover mechanism might be the reason why the 0 must be dialed.

Yes, dialing back to zero allows the key hole cover to be closed. But, if you look toward the end of Squelchtone's video you linked, he was able to open the shackle without closing the door. In fact, he left the door open when he replaced the back cover. Very interesting. Some do, and some don't, apparently.

Re: Help S&G 8077

But his lock was no inspected by Wilma.

Maybe an 8077 and an 8077A allows it and the later ones not. There must be for sure some differences between these versions and I don't know any besides the dial color.

Re: Help S&G 8077

Squelchtone's and Al's are both the 8077AB version. Squelchtone's does, but Al's doesn't. :crazy: That's what is making this so interesting.

What is the date on yours, Al?

And where did you see that his is an AB when you wrote it in your post earlier today?
