The Master Lock Company has taken great steps innovating the old models to produce the new 878 and 975 models. The dual deadlocking mechanism (pictured to the right) allows for resetting the combination without the use of a combination change tool, such as the K175, which is required for model numbers 175, 176 and 178.
