On a side note, 6 feet isn't quite long enough to go through my front tire, seat, and around the bike rack comfortably.
- Fresh new idea to the average combo lock with numbers
- Made of quality materials
- Looks aggressive and secure
- Easily cracked
- Gone in 60 seconds
So these locks are cracked by pulling firmly on both ends while turning the letters. When you arrive at the correct letter the lock with click or pause. The thief followed this step until the lock was picked. I tested this theory on my GF and she hacked my code in less than "60 Seconds." Needless to say that these are not very secure.
Props to the design crew though, because they sure look nice, particularly hanging on the bike lock rack.
Setting the word to use is a snap as well. You open the lock, spin a disk around on the inside, set your word, and then spin it back. Done!
The only complaint (and this is a minor one) is that you might need to think of a few words and try each of them out, as the positions on the letter wheel don't have all 26 letters. Therefore, not every word you can think of can be set on the lock.
My code was my wife's nickname, so it wasn't the case I got confused, and I tried to open the lock at least (25) times. I even went through all the combinations, and that took quite a while. No joy, my belief is the lock didn't reset itself to another letter combination, instead the lock mechanism froze. This lock and cable looked like new when it quit working; it was never subject to rain or other adverse conditions.
I was very disappointed because otherwise, as I stated earlier, this is a very nice product.
