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 have been using both the brass and aluminium versions of this padlock for the past 4x months in the gym. They are perfectly adequate, and I have seen a few more of them in circulation there so they must be quite popular. I didn't want a key padlock as I don't want the hassle of carrying a key around with me. The combination is easy to set and they have both worked flawlessly.
I read up on a few of the combination padlocks at around this price and these two felt like the best for the money. I don't think they would be suitable for outdoor use, but for securing a locker or storage cabinet they would be ideal.
One point of note is that the brass version is at least twice as heavy as the aluminium version, but then it is cheaper to buy.
A good solid lock and looks to be brass as described so should hopefully avoid rust.
Unfortunately, it's not ideal for my gate lock as the metal ring part is too long, which means someone can fiddle it around and still unlock the bolt. Consider this before purchase, though note it's not the locks fault, more the fence lock design.
I bought two and the second one fits on the shed very nicely and much better than using a key, though at night without light it's not very easy to see the numbers.
Also, I feel the number turning mechanism is small and a bit too close together meaning you can accidently turn the wrong number at the same time.
Really easy to use . Gives us peace of mind locking our garden gate, sturdy construction( you'd need bolt cutters to get through it) so another deterant for thieves . So happy with it, that one month on I'm buying another.
Good quality, heavy brass lock. I find it much more convenient to use than key lock. Rated as 5 on security but without being put to the test, who knows. Bought the same made of aluminium as well. Both used outside on garden sheds. Very happy with purchase.
