Exactly, so why use something that's only marginally better than useless? …Exactly, so why use something that's only marginally better than useless? When I say 2 mins, I could likely do it in less than half that, and anyone with any real skills could do it in under 30 secs. I only play with combination locks for fun.As for the two jobs that locks serve, you've got them the wrong way around in terms of priority.


These locks are not supposed to stop harderned gangsters with supersized bolt cutters or angle grinders ffs, they are supposed to stop pickpockers/bagpocketers , which there are alot in, in London, Barcelona, Paris etc if they can get behind you they maybe able to unzip the bag, if not already opened, with a mini lock like this it wont happen, they wont be using equipment in a busy area it takes too much time. A big bulky padlock would probably weigh more than a day bag...

The primary focus of any security system is to deter anything from happening in the first place, if it deters criminal activity then its done its job well, any lock can be exploited if you had the equipment.

You have a 1 in 1000 chance of guessing the passcode. I'm pretty sure you'd be able to cut the lock quicker than actually getting the passcode right. Plus it's £1.49.

Better a three digit lock than no lock
By design, aren't ALL padlocks "anti-theft"?

It's only for fairly inexpensive items.

Only in terms of advertising. Tin-snips would cut these open in a second, but I'd lay money I could open one of these within two minutes (and I'm by no means a professional). Abus are difficult though.

That extra 2 minutes could mean someone taking action against the theif.. more time.. theives like to go for easy targets, if they see a bag with a lock, its not as attractive as a bag without.. as for carrying tin snips, alot of theives, good ones anyway, wont carry any equipment such as that, as if they are searched by Police they can be arrested for going equipped to steal, much better going with no equipment and going for a bag without a lock. Locks have two jobs, to keep items safe, but most importantly deter someone from even trying in the first place.

The one's from Poundland are probably no better than these. I got some recently for my bags just to deter people since I know that the security of these are likely to be terrible but so far has served me well! 2 for £1 there isn't much to complain about but if you do care for your belongings then i'd recommend spending more than 50p or £1.49 on a lock

As you said, to deter. Locks serve two purposes, to keep things safe and to deter anyone from even trying to steal in the first place, no harm using cheap locks to keep bag contents such as a passport, a wallet, drink etc etc safe

.... I'm not arguing with you!
It would be just as effective if you put an old sock inside your bag and asked it nicely to "keep toot" on any strangers coming along.
I went through four of this type of cheap combination lock in the gym over 2 years. They don't have a tendency to last very long due to their poor mechanism.

Back to the 10 year old trusty padlock with key attached to my water bottle holder.
The padlock is more then enough to do its intended Job - obviously a better combination lock would be better - who wants to carry keys around (most get lost)

Mine was. Select saver delivery.
Perfect for the gym and cheaper than the £4.50 easyGym charges.
Interesting description- Locks serves the purpose of anti-theft. It is just a 3 digit number lock and we can get 2 of them for a quid in most of the pound stores!!

For pickpocketers it deters, they want an easy target, they steal in high populated areas, they cant afford to be messing around with locks to see whats inside, they want an easy target, one without a lock.

Thats rare, haven't seen or heard of that before, but, thats easily defended against if you use an inner bag lining, like a thin camping foam bed, anyway, you can say stuff like that for everything, why have locks on a gate when you can just climb over the gate or ram your car into it? Its just making things more difficult for them to steal your stuff and its easier to catch them doing it or someone else to catch them and tell your or call the authorities.
