Should have listed to the reviews, locked my helmet to my scooter came back and it wouldn't unlock. The code comes as 0 0 0, never changed it and it simply wouldn't release, had to cut it off and return it! By the way it cut in 4 seconds with small side cutters but you don't buy this for its ability to resist an attack. very disappointed now need to find a new light weight solution to lock my helmet.
Rubbish ... need super hero eyes to see the numbers. Doesn't unlock all the time. I ended up 70miles from home with the bike locked to a bench a Costa and it not opening even though the code was correct , so ended up having to force it open. If I knew how to sue this company for the damage caused to the paintwork trying to get this thing opened I would
These locks are junk. Both of the ones we bought seized so that we needed bolt cutters to get them off./ On closer inspection it became clear that the die cast bodies are so soft they can be gouged out with a small screwdriver. In summary - good access to your bike for thieves and poor access for you. One more thing - Hiplok threw up so many hurdles to getting a refund that I just wrote the investment off.
I ordered this and the lock combination wouldnt set properly I followed the instructions properly but it remained locked and unusable so I sent it back.
The replacement arrived and it worked! Only a week later during quich shop stop the code I chose was no longer working and my expensive bike was stuck, chained to a rack in Central London where I couldn't remove it. If I had left it overnight it would have surely been stolen. I used brute force to break the lock, took me 3hrs and a damaged hand and wrist.
The combination broke almost immediately - really annoying to return to your bike to find you cannot ride it because the combination lock mechanism has broken hence you need to cut your own lock off. This really is cheap poorly made rubbish. Don't buy.
I bought this for my 5yr old son's bike. The combination lock was never very good, with the number dials always feeling loose, the numbers themselves are printed very small so difficult to see in normal conditions and impossible in anything but midday sun. Inexplicably, the numbers themselves are printed backwards making it amazingly counter-intuitive to use. The real killer though is that yesterday, when collecting my son from school the combination lock failed and couldn't be unlocked at all. It took less than a minute to cut the lock with a hack saw but had we been out for the day rather than 5mins from home this would have been a massive drama. Overall, a great idea but terrible execution.
This is basically a toughened zip tie. Very useful because you can tighten it like a zip tie and stop your bike from slipping - do it up tight and it won't move.
The big downside is that this is a really bad combination lock - I've never tried to pick a lock before, but I didn't bother looking up the combination this was set to because I could feel it just by turning the dials - it might delay a thief by a couple of seconds, but it's stretching it to call it a lock. The non combination version that instead uses a universal "key" to unlock is probably a more useful product.
Ok they are “cafe locks”. They are lightweight, compact, reasonably priced and you don’t need a key. Unlike my Abus Granit lock i will have these with me at all times so there’s no excuse not to use them. I have an electric Brompton and use one of these to lock the battery to the bike and another one (or two) to lock the bike to something solid.
