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.
I lost the key to the old padlock on the back gate so needed to cut it off with a hacksaw, this took 30-45 minutes and i needed to stop for a rest about 20 times as it was hurting my hand holding the lock.
So i bought this Master lock, and after only 2 months outside the combination stopped working so i had no option but to cut it off with the same hacksaw and the exact same blade that i cut the old padlock off with, only this time the blade would have been more blunt than with the old padlock.
I started to cut the lock off and to my amazement, i was fully through the lock in under 60 seconds and had to stop only once to get a better hold of it.
Clearly this is not good if you want to keep your things safe, nor is it any good if the combination stops working after only 2 months, i have read a few reviews on this page that says about the lock not working after 2 months, so it goes to show how right they were.
Clearly the shackle is not hardened and that's how its so easy to cut through it, i honestly believe a strong plastic would have put up a better fight.
I bought this to replace an identical solid brass version of the same lock. This one is actually aluminium with a brass finish, not solid brass,. Putting both the old one and this one side-by-side, aside from the weight difference and fake brass colour, the old one is clearly solid brass as all the dings and dents show brass underneath. I've chosen to keep it as I need the lock immediately but I also feel that I've been misled as sold brass it certainly isn't.
Absolutely terrible. Worse than crap. Bought one for my tack room door, worked well 3 times then got stuck on open and refused to lock.. Requested a replacement, which again worked 3 times then got stuck locked! Now thank god I hadn't removed the other padlock to my gate as one of us uses a key and the other uses the combination lock. If that wasn't the case there would be no way I could get in to do my horses right now, very cross very disappointed. Made a complaint , turns out whole batch are faulty. DO NOT BUY!!
Looks great BUT The padlocks’ first number lock ring broke and just spins around loosely . This after after the first week of use at the gym . So after one week I have a quite expensive lock that is now unlocakable
