Hi, guys. My name is Darrel and I'm head of the tech team here at LocksOnline.co.uk. Thanks for taking some time to tune in and have a look at one of our product review videos and today we're going to be talking to you about the new Kit Lock, the new combination lock that's been designed by the manufacturer's Codelock. Codelock is a pure innovator of combination locking solutions for our industry and this one's no different.
What they've decided to do is to take the locker industry by storm and produce a combination lock that's designed specifically for lockers in gyms and leisure centres and golf clubs and the bowl centre, whatever type where you change your clothes, you need to have a locker, then maybe this is the particular product that would suit you.
Of course, invariably, in years gone by you'd end up having a key and you're locking up, you take a pound in the back, you take the key, you carry the key, you lose the key, and then you have to find somebody to come in and have a spare key in which to get into your locker, but of course, this doesn't happen anymore with this particular type of product.
Now, it can be used as a private locker or a private lock on any type of cabinet if you wanted to use it for that. All they done is they've gone a little bit further in the programming on this particular model to allow you to have some more unique features. One of the basic principles is that it allows you, the user, to use your own code.
So, let me explain that to you in a little bit more detail and we've actually set it up for the locker mode, so to speak, to allow people to see how to use this particular product. If you can imagine, this is the actual lock itself and at this moment in time, it's in free access mode. You can open it and lock it, by all means, just turning that there and that operates a cam that sits on the back and on the back then you would have the myriad of different types of permutations.
Codelock has spent some time and actually have set up, what I would say, is going to be 80% or 90% of the type of locking variance that you would expect on your particular type of locker. So, if you're a locker manufacturer or if you're a leisure centre and you're looking at what would fit these, the statistical odds are that there's a permutation here that's suitable for your particular type of locker.
Anyway, I digress, so let's go back to looking at how this code works. So, at this moment in time it's in free space like I was in free use but let's assume that you've gone in, you've put your stuff in the locker, you've locked it up, and you want to enter a code. So it's one, two, three, four and you enter it again, one, two, three, four. That's now locked this actual locker and you can't unlock it until you put the other code in.
One of the advantages is that you see there's a little red L.E.D. flashing light, and that little red L.E.D flashing light indicates that this now locker is in use. So, if you're going into the gym and you look and see that that one's being used and that one is being used, etc., so that's fine I'll use that one over there because it's not being used.
I've gone for a swim, done what I had to do, I've come back and I now punch in my code, one, two, three, four, and now I can actually unlock the locker, get my clothes out and that's it. It's really, really that simple. Even if you were to forget your code or even if you were to lose or not really remember out of all of the lockers, because you can have loads of locker in a place, you can't remember which one is yours. Instead of going around trying them all, you can get the technician and he can use the technician's code and that will allow you to go into a locker without disturbing it for the event of safety and security, etc., and if it isn't your locker then you can go to the one you think it is.
Codelock has really thought about this regards to functionality and the practicality as both the user and obviously the client who would have it on their lockers as well. They've really thought of both sides of the coin in that respect.
One of the other advantages as well is that if they batteries were starting to fail, I mean I think it's many, many, many thousands or tens of thousands of operations that this particular Codelock will work on the batteries supplied and the batteries sit in the back there, as you can see. Let's assume that the batteries are starting to wear out, then what Codelock has done is that blue and the red lights would start flashing to say that there are 100 operations left and if you still don't change the batteries in that time those two little nodules on there will allow you to put a nine volt PP3 battery on there and allow you then to power it up enough for you to put the manager's code in and allow you to get into the locker. Again, a lot more thought has gone into its operation.
Now, what I'm going to do is get some measurements for you. The actual width is 33 millimetres overall and the actual length from the top to the bottom there is 135 millimetres. These cams that you see here, there are a few different lengths of cams and these will fit up to the metal type of lockers, all the way up to around about an inch thick. There's a bigger one here which is a lot longer, so depending on the substrate that you're using, you can take these two screws off here and change this cam to suit your particular application. It comes with the actual cams themselves and then obviously some keeps and so forth and all these different types of plates, etc. which will do the majority of types of fixings depending on your particular type of application.
Again, they thought about the user's interface as well and they come with a sticker that will go on the actual locker as well. That will actually show how to use it; it's simple as that. And of course it comes with a template and obviously the myriad of installation instructions, etc. on how to use it. It really is simple to use. I've been playing around with it now for the last ten minutes, 20 minutes messing around with it and once get to understand its functionality and its basic principles, etc. it really, really is an easy lock to understand.
I think if I have to be honest with you, Codelock have taken something out of the bag with this one. I think it's an ideal product, had loads of different uses and of course, what they've also done is allow it to be used in a horizontal position as well. This one's the vertical position because the numbers are set in a vertical alignment but they can also have it in a horizontal position but then the numbers would sit the opposite way. So depending on your particular type of setup, you can either have it sitting horizontally like that or like that, or you can have it vertically as well depending on what you want it to be used for.
