Comments about Master Lock Speed Dial Set-Your-Own Combination Lock, 1 ea:

If my previous review shows up here, this one supersedes it.

I _loved_ this lock. What a great idea! You can open it without looking, can set your own combination, and it looks great / colorful, etc..

I've studied the patent on the design and it actually is fine and secure.

But reading discussions on other retailer's reviews and now my own experience -- this lock FAILS frequently -- it doesn't fail to stay locked ... no, rather, it fails to allow you to reset the combination sequence input process to zero which is the first step required to UNLOCK it.

Thus, I have a lock that CANNOT be opened! Luckily this happened when it was not attached to anything. But what if this were on my gym locker and I was ... undressed! -- This has happened to other people.

DO NOT BUY THIS LOCK. I hope they come up with a fix for the reset problem, but SHAME on Master Lock for not issuing a recall.

Comments about Master Lock Speed Dial Set-Your-Own Combination Lock, 1 ea:

Unlike the traditional dial locks, this lock has 2 great features:

1. Able to be opened without looking at it (since the combination consists of up, down, left, right movements in sequence).
2. Able to set your own combination (from 1 to 11 steps, practically ... I recommend 5 to 8 steps).

You MUST be careful to follow the exact instructions to set your own combination sequence or use the random one that comes with the lock. In other words, you must be sure to RESET the lock after opening it, but before setting your own sequence, lock it, then release the reset switch.

For those having trouble opening the lock, practice moving the directional dial while pressing it inwards and not letting it over-spring back into place. Perhaps set a different sequence.

The internal gears contain a lot of plastic and may wear out.

The large design and shackle may not fit in some tight situations (including lockers with small indented lock bolting areas).

Kinda iffy

Comments about Master Lock Speed Dial Set-Your-Own Combination Lock, 1 ea:

I love the idea of this lock, but even if I press down and then do the combination, it doesnt open every time thus I am concerned about using this at the gym for my locker. I would hate to get stuck there because this thing is being temperamental. Maybe I need to practice or something, but I cant get it to open first time, every time. Any tips? I even watched the video that they have available on the website
