Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by TimThom001 Good lock,poor durability outside in weather
This is the second of these locks that I have purchased. We use it to lock up a folding shopping cart outside. Since we live in the city, it has saved the shopping cart from being stolen at least four times!
This cheap lock with an old chain stops the bottle collectors from stealing it. A very low cost solution to a big security problem. Now, here is the problem. This is not designed to survive bad weather. It has to be replaced every year. I still recommend it. Avery low cost solution to a big security problem

Absolute garbage. I purchased two locks and had to return both to HD. The combination changed on the 1st one so I wasn't able to get it open. With the second lock, the combination changed while it was open so I could not close it. And unlike a keyed lock, there is minimal movement between the open and closed position so it doesn't give you much confidence that the lock will hold. Luckily, HD has a great return policy and they didn't give me any grief.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DenverDave I would pass on this one..
I just purchased 2 of these. Only one worked. These are lightweight small locks meant to keep honest people honest. It's not the size that is the problem, its the resettable portion. I was able to set two of the three tumblers, but because of poor Chinese manufacturing tolerances, I was unable to set the 3rd tumbler. I've bought the 4 tumbler version of these and had no problems, but save your money and time and stay away from these.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Raven15 Can not lock it
I got the lock from the HD to put on my garage, because there were some tools in there but I felt the lock was still strong enough to not be the weakest link. Well, after one week it can no longer be snapped shut again, no matter how creative I get in squeezing and spinning the dials. How hard can it be to make a three digit combo lock? They've been around for hundreds of years, and they've been mass produced for a hundred years! No stars and no excuses at all for failing on such a simple product. Now to drive all the way back to HD for another, hopefully a different brand.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by LPSpecialist Malfunctions too easily
It says that you can change the combination by turning the shackle 90 degrees and pressing down then changing the combination, but with our experience at work (we used this lock to temporarily lock a gate) you can just unlock it and look at it for a few seconds and then the combination you had previously set would no longer work. if the shock of placing the lock down on a counter in the unlocked position is all it takes to change the combination, it breaks too easy. This is the lock with trust issues, it doesnt even trust the person who sets the combination.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Sazo UnMASTERFUL COMBINATION LOCK
I wanted a combination lock to use outdoors on my fence gate and garden shed. I bought two of the Master Lock Brass 1 3/16" combination locks for the purpose. Supposedly they were built for outside use!
Now less then a year later one of the locks is nearly impossible to dial in the combination due to stiffness and corrosion , and the second lock had to be cut off and thrown away.
I have used dozens of "Masterlocks" through the years and they have always given me good service. Unfortunately these two locks have not!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Philip Pain to actually lock it back
The lock has to have the combination set to be able to close it and while pushing it closed turn the wheels to lock it. It is much more difficult to use than expected and only goes down about 1/8". I wasn't expecting great security from it but expected more ease of use.

This is a good lock. I've been using it to lock my belongs in a locker at the gym. It was easy to reset the combination to the numbers I wanted.
