It's a solid chunky lock. Probably bigger and heavier than you need for a gym locker, but otherwise fine.
Mine came without instructions. I rang MasterLock UK and Nikki very quickly emailed the instructions to me. This is what you need to do: with the red line face of the lock in front of you and the zeros lined up, open the lock, turn the hasp a quarter turn away from you, and then push it in, and with it pushed in, reset to the new combination, release and away you go.
I know that's a fairly standard method, but not obvious if you only buy a padlock once in a blue moon.
So much easier than losing the key - just be careful not to turn tumblers with the padlock open and hasp turned as you may change the combination without meaning to. Elderly mother manages these where she couldn't manage a keyed lock so ideal from that point and seem pretty weather resistant as well.
Hate having to secure things but it's so necessary! Anyway this lock makes it easy as it has a 4 number combination which is so easy to set I didn't need the instructions! Once that's done there is no key to loose and so long as you can remember the number life should be easy and secure!
The lock itself is a good size, heavy and feels solid and well made. Should deter the casual tealeaf at least!
These are excellent, 4-tumbler, padlocks. My assumption from the look and feel of them is that they are reasonably high security. Certainly on a garden shed or similar the hinges and door would give way before the lock. Easy to set. Not cheap but 'you get what you pay for'.
I bought this lock to use on my gym locker, but it has many uses. This is a great combination lock (SO good in fact that I accidentally locked myself out of it the first time when resetting the factory combo to my own, and had to buy another one..!). My own silly fault, but I think that it proved it's strength on that basis - I couldn't get back into it no matter what I tried.
I'm happy to say that my second attempt worked a charm, and I'm very pleased with the lock. It feels totally secure and well made. I'd definitely recommend this to anyone.
very good lock - strong and robust (it has a comforting weight about it compared to other locks of the same size), easy to reset the combination and the movement of the number wheels is precise and light. fits perfectly onto a standard gym locker.
