I bought two of these locks; one for my snowboard and one for my gf's.
Initially they were both great; they were small, lightweight, and use a combination so you don't have to rummage around looking for a key.
After two trips BOTH locks jammed and would not unlock despite having the correct combination. I managed to get one unlocked by jiggling the combination reel and yanking real hard on the cable (to the point where your fingers hurt), but the other was locked for good.
Usually I don't write reviews but I would hate for this to happen to someone else, particularly if they've locked their boards in a location where you can't borrow pliers to cut the cable.
Waste of time and money.
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
