DO NOT BUY THIS. Randomly locked up with new batteries, forcing me to destroy a piece of furniture that I will now have to repair. This is garbage. Avoid.
ORIGINAL POST: Great little locking mechanism: easy set-up, easy installation. Just make sure you get your measurements right before you start screwing things in. Lock opens and closes with a satisfying electronic click and can be installed just about anywhere. Seriously considering getting some for every door in my home because.... why not?
Tried using for a lock for a stool with gas assist springs and the tension those apply to the lock keeps it from opening. You have to push slightly on the lid of the stool to release tension for it to open. Also no instructions on how to properly mount the top and bottom, which aren't naturally aligned and as such, its a guessing game. I did use a piece of double sided tape to attempt to get it accurate, but still had to use spacers to adjust as no adjustment on device itself. The power to usb is also pretty cheap. have to loosen it ever so slightly to get contact. nothing that I would trust.
After 5mo of relatively little use (it’s locking a cabinet i rarely get into) tonight it no longer would lock. Power is on and working, the gears turn but the locking bar that comes down would not stay when the two pieces were pushed together, hence never latching. After uninstalling from the cabinet i took the unit apart. Two hours later i still couldn’t get the gears calibrated so that bar comes down and stays down. $30 in the garbage (and a few hours of fiddling around with it). Disappointed.
I had high hopes for these, but alas they simply didn't work. The devices failed to meet the promises made, and ultimately locked me out within 30 minutes of proper setup. Steer clear of this item, and invest in a higher-quality lock.
The lock was pretty easy to install with included templates but after less than 100 open/close cycles quit locking altogether. The lock would not hold....I uninstalled and installed again IT WORKED! Once.....than stopped latching again. Of course this was after my return window has closed so that ship sailed. Just another cheap Chinese product supported (sort of) by Amazon. Thanks!
