A: I would suggest that you get some WD40 lubricant in a spray can and spray the lock or the actual numbers several times over a 2 hour period and the numbers should again roll free. This is something you should do at least once a year to keep the lock working smoothly. WD 40 cans are sold at or local Home Depot store.
A: Yes, it can be left unlocked . There's a difference between being locked and latched Therefore it can be unlocked but still latched If you need the ability they just open the gate freely (so a toddler can simply push door open or you're carrying groceries) you'd have to get a separate piece, a 'hook' to hold the door open.
A: Yes you could but you would be exposing your combination. You could easily change the combination again or turn the dials to 0000 as most everyone knows that is the number to open locks when new or combination is unchanged.
A: Home Depot should be able to ship it to you.This is a question should be able to answer when you place the order.
