WD-40? Yes, it is important
Always apply WD40 before inserting the decoders in the locks. WD-40 loosens rust-to-metal bonds and frees stuck, frozen or rusted metal parts. With WD-40 you help the pins move inside the lock cylinder - this leads to better performance
Step 1. Reset Procedure of Prodecoder HY22
Prodecoder HY22 has only TWO active wheels – the turbo wheel and the tension wheel. The middle wheel is static and it only contains the stop points. It plays no role in the reset procedure or the opening procedure.
Step 1. turn the turbo wheel to the right / the back one that contains the serial number on it/
Step 2. reset the pins by pushing them down to the maximum through the 6 holes per side (12 holes in total)
Step 2. Inserting Prodecoder into the lock
Step 1. Turn the turbo wheel all to the right
Step 2. Simply insert the decoder inside the lock
Step 3. Opening procedure
The most important part is how strong your tension is (on the tension wheel). If its too weak – the lock won’t open or it will open very slow. If the tension is too strong – you may break the tool or risk of tool deformation.
1. Turn the tension wheel to the LEFT (keep holding it) and then turn the turbo wheel to the left until you reach the 1st stop point (we have 1 2 stop points engraved on the the middle wheel) and return the turbo wheel to the right in its original position.
2. Turn the tension wheel to the RIGHT (keep holding it) and then turn the turbo wheel to the left until you reach the 1st stop point (we have 1 2 stop points engraved on the the middle wheel) and return the turbo wheel to the right in its original position.
Repeat this procedure 15-20 times on stop point 1, and 15-20 on stop point 2. This is what we call “progressive opening”. Do not rush the tool!
Important! Right Side or Wrong Side?
When you start the Opening procedure discussed above, but there is no resistance in the Turbo wheel, this means that you are on the Wrong side and you must eject the tool and reverse it on the other side.
