To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
A sturdy padlock, this fitted our gate where there is a fairly wide gap between the post and the gate itself. At first I did have some difficulty in getting it to close, even when I had been extremely careful to line up the code correctly. Then I found that I needed to press it closed with my fingers on the end furthest from the opening, when it was much easier. Hence only 4 stars.
Started to try to change the code by instinctively reading the first column of instructions on the leaflet that applied to the wrong model. Mine is the BV-8861 - A great little padlock - nice and thick steel bar - number large, clear and colour coded for us older generation - only gave it 4 stars since I had to hunt for a small screwdriver to press the reset button in and turn it. Might be handy to have one included in the packaging.
Well made and works well, the only minor criticism I have is that the numbers have to line up at the bottom of the lock which means you have to be able to 'invert' it to see the numbers. In our case this is difficult to do. The other two combination locks we have the numbers line up at the front/back face which is much easier.
This is the best combination lock I have come across, solid sturdy well made. The best thing about it from a personal point of view, is the ability to read the numerals without having to use my glasses!!
Just as good as the first one I bought. Could be improved from excellent to perfect if the raised lines that indicate where the numerals should be aligned were in a contrasting colour. I did it myself with silver nail polish.
