This can be fun. Get a strong magnet and a couple of dental picks. Spray the inside of the tumblers with WD40 to free things up. Open the lock door as best you can and try the magnet and the picks with the help of an assistant.Keep trying, when you start to pull your hair out,walk away , take a break, and try again. You will get it. Been there.... Good Luck! Mark
