At Topsec Security & Locksmith Services, based in New York City, we sell combination locks that are of high quality. With these locks, you need to remember the combination sequence to unlock to access and you do not need keys to open them when you are sure of the unlocking sequence. This avoids the hassle of having to carry the key. These locks are good enough for small asset protection.
Not For High Security Purposes
These locks are not recommended for high security purposes; however, the positive factor about this lock is that it is going to be very difficult for someone to identify the exact combination to break the lock open. Even the owner of the lock can find it cumbersome to open the lock when the combination sequence is forgotten. These combinations are better than keys because you can use more than 1000 different combinations of numbers to lock, which means each time you can lock using an entirely new sequence.
What Are Combination Locks?
Combination locks are those locks where the opening of the locks is controlled by a set sequence of numbers, alphabets, or symbols in a wheel pack, instead of keyholes. However, there are models that have combination sequences as well as the keyholes. These locks are also known as permutation locks. You set the dial on these locks to a specific sequence of number, alphabet or symbol and press the lock to lock it and then you shuffle the combination away.
When you need to open the lock over again, you should set the dial to the same sequence of numbers that you initially used to lock it; otherwise, it would not open. Most of such combinations locks come with keyholes and a key to open it. If you did buy one such lock you can use the key to open the lock.
Uses of Combination Locks
Small combination locks are ideal to lock laptops, luggage, small gates, tool boxes, bicycles, brief cases, lockers, and to lock several smaller objects.
