I thought to myself WHOA whats that for? so i tried picking it thought all the pins were set but i didnt see anything happen what exactly is that little lock for and can you pick it?
I believe, am slightly uncertain, that it's used so you can bypass the combination. IE: Someone issues a bunch of locks and has them all keyed the same, schools and such.
I also have one, picked it up at a yard sale. Have picked it, but to be honest, I can't recall if it opened the padlock. I believe so, but am not sure. It was a pain to pick, since at the time I didn't have any undersized tools.
