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 actual combination numbers do not have a positive 'click' when you set them and easily move. I used one of the locks several times and it became unlocked on its own after small movements and actually fell off on its own 3 times! Useless!
I use this in conjunction with a helmet lock extension to lock my motorcycle helmet on my motorcycle. My motorcycle did not come with a helmet lock, so I use this when needed. I have not parked in any seedy areas where it was necessary for me to lock my helmet to my bike or where after leaving it unlocked on my bike it was stolen. But every now and then I park it in a public location for extended periods and wanted to be able to lock both my helmet and jacket to my bike. This cable lock is just perfect for that use. Now admittedly if someone really wanted to steal my helmet it would not be too difficult to cut this cable. But just difficult enough to discourage a casual theft idea.
I bought these locks because the item that I was locking had a small opening that traditional padlocks wouldn't fit. The instructions were very clear on how to set your own code. The trick to opening up the latch once the code is inputted is to pinch the loop together to unlatch it. It seems like a quality lock.
Locks work well once you learn them. The number dials are sensitive. Have to be careful that you have the numbers set correctly. Found this was best when pulling the lock out them set your combination. Purchased the cord lock for the size and length of the lock. Works well
