I need my glasses now to eat my dinner so it was great to be able to read the large numbers. We do not use the back gate during the winter much so I had to remember where to move the numbers to , but after one try that was OK. My husband and I had a bit of a problem at first setting up the code, that problem was solved when I read the advice notes carefully. I think that I may need to add some WD40 just to make sure that it does not stick during next winter, the above are why I have only given the item a 4, I would however buy the item again - I think my sister needs one ] A follow up it did not last a winter... so sad. but I can still read the numbers - its just that the lock does not
The colours of the lock are great for when you scan the locker-room looking to identify your locker door amidst the many other identical doors. Seems more than adequate for its intended purpose, though I wouldn't use this for anything other than a gym locker.
Be very gentle when pressing and turning the small flat-head grub screw for when you set your own combination. Mine was too stiff to turn for some reason so I soaked the lock with some GT85. The screw then turned but the metal is that soft that my 'tiny' electrcians flat-blade screwdriver snapped the screw in half. Yes I did get to set my own number, but I won't be able to change this ever again as the screw would now only return to it's original position. The world still turns and I didn't shed a tear, but this was a bit naff for a first time use. I wouldn't buy this again as a replacement, but would choose an alternative.
This is a well made combo lock..thin shank and large easy to turn tumblers..if you follow the instructions you will be fine..make sure you have the correct lock as instructions included two other locks..read.confirm and set you lock..you need a very small screwdriver to turn the reset screw which is a bit of a pain as it's. So small.. All in all this is a well built lock that is easy to set and strong...I have it outside so I put a squirter of all in to shaft and I put the lock in a small plastic bag with an elastic band to secure...sounds a bit over the top but this will extend the life of any out door lock...I have 3 of these and would recommend them for protecting mid range situations...if you locking gold away get a bigger lock..lol...don't by cheap copy of this lock..
This was a terrible buy, I should have read the previous reviews before spending my cash. From delivery straight in the bin. The pin is so flimsy you have to turn to change the combination causing the pin to crumble when you try to turn it with a tiny screwdriver. I couldn't get the combination to change and the lock opened no matter what numbers you turned, this product is simply useless.
Smooth operating lock, every few weeks give a slight spray of WD40 if used externally. UPDATE well over a year of outside use in wet conditions still works well, as previously mentioned WD40 the lock and leave it for a while to dry off saves stinking of WD 40 not a good aftershave smell.
We use these locks for the gates at our tennis club, they are outdoors and seem to survive despite the weather and various attempts by vandals to break them. We had previously tried much more expensive locks which all broke very quickly. These are inexpensive and amazing value.
Bought in September and used on a shed in the front garden, it was OK until it started raining a bit more. In the beginning was a bit hard to open after getting wet so I tried with a bit of 3 in 1 oil. Unfortunately after a few days of continuous rain it got stuck and was impossible to open with bare hands, I had to "gently" nudge it with a hammer.
This is great. Arrived next day. Big chunky thing but it fits the gym locker nicely. The numbers are easy to see, the wheels turn easily and it snaps closed with a reassuring clunk. It looks smart and it makes it quick to identify your own locker from all the others using lesser locks! It only took a minute with a small screwdriver to set it to my own code. Definitely worth having.
Thought this would be great due to big numbers and brightly coloured however cannot change number as screw is so small and flimsy so it shredded when we followed the instructions to change it. Didn’t need it till it was to late to Return.
