When using such a lock, I would recommend not choosing a repeated digit, simple increasing/decreasing pattern, year within the last 100 years, nor a date in the form MMDD. If you do, the possibility space for the lock is decreased by a factor of 20+.

If you don’t acknowledge them, they are more likely to continue on their way faster
