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.
The lock is as advertised. The mechanism is difficult to use - the combination works fine but the cable does not always rewind which is frustrating. Overall it feels like a flimsy product and I found better elsewhere.
I'm not dissatisfied with this weedy lock. I bought it to have something extremely light and compact which fits in a small bag and gives me extra peace of mind if I stop at a café or shop for 5-15 minutes. So far it has filled that brief adequately.
The mechanisms of the lock - dials, retracting cable button, unlock button - work well and give a positive user experience.
It does feel like a single quick yank on the few-millimetre-thick wire would free your bike to an opportunistic criminal, though. A lock for those who dare to live dangerously.
I use this for holding my back pack together whilst traveling and staying in hostels. It does the job and is useful but no idea why it has to be so large and ugly. I would happily pay double for a non plastic more compact design but this was the best I could find. As others have mentioned the reset button is place in such a location you could easily press it by accident.
Bought for my £500 bike - used a few times whilst I pop in a shop, but not comfortable leaving out of sight for more than a few minutes. I'd class this as a 'slight deterrent' rather than actual protection.
Nice product: lightweight, simple, easy to use. Bad thing it is so easy to reset the combination without even noticing. I use it for securing seat to bike frame, does not feel good enough for much more than that.
