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.
It does what it's supposed to. I can set the code to whatever 3 digits I want, and then I can tie it to anything. Useful for preventing grab & run type theft. Made good use of it on my recent trip.
Only issue I have is that the cable is a little tricky to retract all the way. If I want the cable to fully retract, I have to play around with it a couple times until I can get it to go in. Sometimes I have to push it in. It still works fine, but it's just annoying because I want the cable to fully retract when not in use. Minor issue, still a good lock.
As others have suggested, this won't prevent a determined bike thief, but if you're using it on something like skis (like I am), it will definitely make a crook move on down the line. I also can't comment on longevity, as I've only used it twice. Naturally, because of the WooHoo Flu here in Ontario, the ski hills have been shut down, but I'm trusting that if things ever open up again, then this thing will make it through at least a season or three. Cable easily travels through ski pole straps, around skis, and also around the ski rack. Push one of the buttons and the extra slack is taken up, and you're quickly off to a race against time against undoing ski pants and using the 'facilities'...
So far so good! It was easy to change the combination to something I'll remember, and so far works exactly as promised. Yes, it's only a thin wire - I wouldn't exactly trust this enough to walk away from my bag - but I mainly wanted something that would be enough to deter any would-be thieves or pick-pockets, and I believe this will be sufficient.
A great little lock that has minimal weight for the bike. Obviously only a deterrent or delaying tool but very handy when going in for a quick coffee. Would give you time to come out and lay a beating on the person taking your bike before he got away. Much better than the helmet strap.
J’ai acheté ce cadenas pour attacher mes casques sur ma nouvelle Goldwing 2028. Très pratique et se range très bien dans le compartiment droit de la moto. Très pratique de verrouiller les casques sans besoin d’une clé. Fonctionne très bien avec l’attache pour casque.
I use this all of the time when travelling to secure my backpack to my deck chair while in the water. I also use it to string smaller bags together in my carry on so that TSA can't steal one of them without dragging a whole lot more than they expected out of the bag!
Awesome lock! It stays compact when you need to store it and then the cable comes out pretty far when you need it. Easy to lock and unlock with the number codes. The cable head is small enough to fit through zippers nicely. Great to put through zippers of a suit case and then wrap it through a sturdy piece of furniture or fixture to ensure no one takes your stuff.
