Locks are to keep honest people out

I bought the US general lock you began with and it didn’t last 3 months for me. I used it on my trailer at work but since I never leave my trailer and go straight from our base to customer and back, I wasn’t worried about it getting picked or broken. The problem is the shackle began sticking and wouldn’t work correctly locking or unlocking anymore. It wasn’t exposed to water, mud, dirt or anything that could’ve caused it to seize up the way it did. It was either on the trailer or with me. It just stopped working. Never had a lock do that. This is one of the worst things I’ve bought from HF.

Wow!! A tire iron or a hammer or a rock and a whack or two and you’re in!! For what I’m using locks for Master Lock has always been my go-to. I can’t recall any bad experiences with them. Just keep em lubed so they don’t rust or freeze in the winter.

Appreciate the PSA at the beginning! I’ve made a few purchases based off your reviews, and I saw it in the last video and thought I’d grab one when I need it but now I know! And yea I wouldn’t use a hf lock on anything more than a bicycles definitely agree with you there
