Color Name: Red

Product Description

WordLock maintains the highest standard of security for personal and commercial locks, without using any keys or arbitrary number combinations. Instead, WordLock uses your memory’s natural preference for keywords and the alphabet, allowing you to set and change your own combination from thousands of possible word and letter combinations. Traditional locks require keys or they make you remember confusing sequences of numbers. Those days are over, thanks to WordLock's advances in lock technology. Security, creativity and usability come together in the original family of WordLock padlocks, bike locks, travel locks and cable locks.


The Wordlock Padlock is an easy-to-use, secure padlock that features letter--not number--combinations. Instead of requiring you to memorize a random string of numbers, the Wordlock Padlock enables you to choose almost any five-letter word as your password. With over 100,000 different letter combinations, the Wordlock Padlock makes it easy to pick a word that is unique to you, so you'll have a combination that is easy to remember but nearly impossible to guess.

Easy-to-use Wordlock Padlocks are available in four colors.

Intuitive Word-Building Technology
With its patented technology that combines the most effective mix of vowels and consonants, the Wordlock Padlock offers five rotating dials and up to 100,000 possible letter combinations . The Wordlock Padlock uses your natural preference for keywords and the alphabet to help you design a password that you're not likely to forget.

Easy to Set and Reset
Once you've identified the word you want to use, it's easy to set the Wordlock Padlock to your new password. Simply turn the dials to the original Wordlock password or the last password you had, and with the shackle open, use a coin to turn the end slot to reset. Move the dials to your chosen password and return the end slot to its original position. There are no removable parts or extra wheels to keep track of.

Offers Maximum Security
The Wordlock Padlock offers maximum security against theft with its 2-5/8-inch hardened steel shackle and its solid, metal body. The Wordlock Padlock is rated to 3,000 pounds of pull strength, and it's also weatherproof for indoor or outdoor use.

Fits Your Purpose
With its versatility and strength, the Wordlock Padlock can be used for recreation, storage, travel, or work. Because you can set the Wordlock to an easy-to-remember word, students will love using it for school lockers, the gym, or their personal items. Professionals will also appreciate the Wordlock for jobsites and tools, and homeowners will find the Wordlock handy for their toolboxes and sheds.

I previously owned a Master-Lock version of this "spelling lock" that offered four-letter combinations, so I bought this five-letter lock assuming two things: that the letter-dials could be removed and rearranged to suit my preference, and that all the letters of the alphabet were represented at least once.

I was mistaken.

Here, in order, are the letters available to the user on each dial from left to right:

Dial 1:
A, L, S, W, B, P, F, M, D, T
Dial 2:
A, P, O, R, I, L, C, E, T, N
Dial 3:
A, N, U, T, O, S, E, R, I, L
Dial 4:
A, O, S, K, N, R, T, E, L, D
Dial 5:
E, R, L, S, N, T, H, Y, D, BLANK

You must spell your word on the fixed dials without rearranging them, and you will have to choose a word that does not end in a vowel, as so many common words and names do. You may also notice that the letters G, J, Q, V, X, and Z are missing entirely, so if your preferred code-word contains one of these, you will be out of luck.

With the Master-Lock version, not only can you rearrange the dials for more variety, but you can also switch out the dials from different Master-Locks to spell a unique word that would not otherwise be possible, such as X-RAY or L33T.

I have no complaints about the WordLock's security--the whole lock has a heavy, sturdy feel to it, and the method of resetting the code-word via a dial on the side is as easy if not easier than the Master-Lock's method of snapping off the right side of the casing. But you will most likely have to resort to your third or fourth choice, as I have, before you find a word that will work with limited selection of letters.

The thing that initially attracted me to the padlock was the ability to change the combination with ease (which it does quite well). I just recently got a second locker at the gym and buying two of these and syncing the combos seemed like a better route than keeping track of two different combinations. Plus if I ever need to get a third padlock I can adjust the new one.

What I liked:
-The ease at which the combination can be changed, it literally takes seconds.
-This is the first padlock I've had with letters, it makes a lot easier to remember a combo when it is assigned to a word or mnemonic device.

What I didn't like:
-The letters are very large, it would not be difficult for someone several feet away to read your combo if you're not trying to obscure it.
-The padlock cannot be closed if the combo isn't put it. I've gotten used to this, but it is annoying and means your combo has to be on display longer than necessary.
-This is larger than a traditional padlock. If you're using a locker with an externally mounted latch, this won't be a problem. However, if you are using a locker with a recessed latch, it can be difficult to get the padlock exactly where it needs to go with ease. It definitely fits, but it took me a couple weeks to be able to do it on the first try without looking.

I would probably buy this padlock again just to be able to have the same style of lock with a matching combo. However, if this was my first time buying I would probably look a little further.

I ordered two of these: black, and silver, both to be used for outdoor applications (exposed fully to the elements, given they're advertised to withstand outdoor conditions). The locks are just the right size, look good, hang right on the hasps.

However, while the silver one (full southern exposure hanging on a shed) still works flawlessly, the letters spin freely, etc., the black one (full eastern exposure, hanging on a shed) doesn't function well at all -- and that's the one we use the most. The individual letters don't spin smoothly, they stick and hang -- making it very difficult to use.

A good thing is that changing the combo on either lock is very, very simple. Note that you can make way more words than are listed in the little sample words sheet that's included with the lock, even words from other languages, which will *really* mess people up and increase the inability for anyone to guess your password.

A bad thing about both locks is that once they are opened, you have to keep your password visible on the little arrow in order to re-lock it; you can't just spin the tumblers and 'erase' your password to hide it from others while you let the lock hang open while you do your thing (i.e. use your shed or access your gate, etc.). This poor feature essentially leaves your password available for everyone to see, because in order to re-close/lock the lock, you have to have to realign your password along the arrows (again), and spin the lock backwards, try to lock it down, then spin the lock portion forwards again in order to get it to fit back into the lock position.

Contrary to what other reviewers have said, multiple-dial locks that use words instead of numbers have been around for centuries, but those had bodies made of brass and iron, not plastic and pot metal. You could not change the combinations on those ancient locks so easily, but unfortunately, Master did nothing to make this new one any harder to open by a bad guy. (Do a search on Google or Wikipedia for "multiple-dial locks" and see what I mean.) It would have cost them nothing when they designed it to have added some false gates or make the tumblers with jagged edges to bind when pressure was applied to them, but they didn't do that.

That said, this one has more tumblers than most of them that will make a thief spend (slightly) more time when trying to manipulate it open, so I gave it an extra star. It also has a very wide shackle opening, so it could be useful in some low-security situations where smaller locks just won't fit.

If you want a changeable combination padlock that can't be opened except by people who know how to reach inside it with special tools, get a Sesamee brand padlock with at least 4 dials. It uses an indirect mechanism that is hard to decode.

A lock that uses letters is more convenient, but "convenient" doesn't generally mean "secure." It would be even more convenient to use no lock at all, but that's even less secure!
