Sometimes the simplest methods are still the best option - and this is especially relevant for barrel bolts, which remain an ideal solution for so many basic locking applications. The downside to barrel bolts is that they're not all lockable, and those that are, typically rely on use of padlocks which can be inconvenient, especially where you have multiple people using it who may misplace the padlock, this is where KASP's combination locking barrel bolt really comes into its own.
Housed within the weatherproof die-cast body of the barrel bolt is a four-wheel combination locking chamber, which is used to lock the bolt in place and will only release the bolt when the correct code is entered. What's even better here, is that KASP have designed the bolt so that it can be locked in the open or closed position, which means you can prevent the bolt from being locked as well as preventing it from being opened - perfect for scenarios where something needs to be left unlocked for shared use, where there is potential for people idly locking the bolt which would otherwise mean you'd end up having to either share your code or attend personally to unlock it again. So the simple solution of having it lockable in the open position solves this potential issue perfectly.
The staple (the loop that the bolt shoots into) is supplied as standard, sharing the same 48mm height as the main body, and has a width of just 20mm.
Full dimensions of the bolt can be seen in the size diagram in the photos, but you may be curious about the screw fixing positions - these are 74mm and 34mm, measured from centre-to-centre. Similarly on the staple the fixings are 34mm apart.
Supplied with anti-tamper 'prison screws' - the heads are designed in such a way that they can be driven down with a screwdriver but not undone.
How to change the code on the KASP Combination Bolt Lock
- Enter the existing code (default is 1-1-1-1 if this is your first time changing the code).
- Slide the bolt into the locked position (bolt protruding out).
- While lifting the slider knob up, slide it all the way to the fully unlocked position (bolt retracted), and push the slider knob back down to its normal seated position.
- Rotate the wheels to the new code you want set.
- While lifting the slider knob up again, slide the bolt all the way to the fully locked position, and push the slider knob back down to its normal seated position.
After these simple steps, your new code should now be working - once you have proven this by sliding the bolt in and out using the new code, you can be confident you have successfully changed the code.
Important: Any padlocks & associated hardware intended to be used in external settings should be properly maintained and lubricated to an appropriate level for the setting in order to ensure correct operation and protection from unnecessary weathering.
