Hi guys, my name is Darrel and I'm head of the tech team here at LocksOnline. Thanks for taking some time to tune in and have a quick look at one of our product review videos. Now I'm putting these short little videos together to be able to give you, our customers, the opportunity to see the products that we have to offer in hopefully a little bit more detail. In the flesh, so to speak.
Today I'm going to show you one of the master key lock boxes. Now, they all seem to be the rage in the UK these days. If you've got a friend who needs a little bit of help and needs a bit of assistance, can't get to the door and needs a bit of care every so often, then what seems to be a chosen way of being able to keep a key safe if you've got different visitors coming at different times, is to put one of these key combination lock boxes outside. Somewhere in a discreet area that only certain people would know the code, and they they'd be able to get the key for the front door and let themselves in. So therefore, then they can have the person inside, etcetera. Obviously there are other reasons as well. Not necessarily for care or for the disabled people that we have in the country.
So it's capable of having loads of different functions and loads of different ideas. So the idea of this particular one here, this one is manufactured by the company Master. And as you can see here, this has this nice little sliding pocket here that allows you to drop that down there and then basically you'll be able to dial in your code, and you pop this handle down there like that. And then this would then open, and then you'll be able to then get inside and therefore then take the key that will be situated inside here and then obviously open the door, etc.
Now it comes with some fixings here. You'll need to get yourself some . . . they're designed to go into wood, but if you were thinking of fitting this into mortar or onto a brick surface, etc., you need to get yourself some wall plugs, etc. So just to bear that in mind, but it does come with a standard four screws there. Now the way to be able to change the code on this particular unit, which is quite straightforward and easy to do, is you have this sliding button here, as you can see here.
Now the default code from the manufacturer is all set to zeros. So if I wanted to change the code on this, it's quite simple. I pop it over there like that, push that up there like that so it's now in the reset position. I then go to the front here, and if I wanted to say for an example, change the code to one and then two and then say, three, and then say, four, okay I've now changed the code to one, two, three, four. That's all nicely set there.
I go back here then. I then drop that back there like that. That goes back into the reset position there and now I change the code to one, two, three, four. Of course, this now will operate the lock there at the top as you can see there. But if I change then, one of these digits, I put that to zero there, of course now it's not operating at all. So now I've changed the code. It's as simple as that. So it's now one, two, three, four and that operates. So that's the basic principle or idea of the actual setup there. So as you can see, it's one, two, three, four and that opens it up there.
So there you go guys, that's basically Master's version of the lockable box, the key box now that is incredibly popular in the UK. To give yourself some sort of idea of measurements on this, of course as you can see, the top of the lock here does have the combination mechanism and therefore does restrict what sort of key you could put up here in the top. So if I was to measure, just to give yourself some sort of idea there, you've got around about 60mm of free space there, and the depth there is around about 25mm of free depth there. So you're going to get yourself a Yale key in here, perhaps a Chubb key, etc., in here as well.
Just to give you some sort of idea if there is space, I haven't checked it but let me just double check that for you, I'm getting that in there around about 32mm, and of course that's going to take up the top piece there as well. So you're not going to have much space above that, so really the usable space is this particular piece that sits in underneath here. This particular part here. So the width of that as well, just to give you some sort of idea, you've got around about 63mm worth of width there as well. So usually you see doors and stuff like that, no problem at all. You can put some keys in there.
So there you go guys. We've got the fixings here. You can see there are four fixings roughly in the centre of the unit and as you can see it's been made out of cast material for strength and rigidity and weather resistant. So there you go. It's just one of the products that we have on our website. I'll just quickly give you a measurement overall, just in case you might think, "I'm limited for space but will this actually fit in the hole that I'm looking for in the place?" We're looking at there, about 85, 86mm in its width and its overall height is 120mm.
So there you go. Many thanks and that's the actual product there. But listen, if you need a bit more information on this or any of the products that we have, pop us over an email. Use the live chat, or simply do it the old fashioned way and pick up the phone and give us a call. Either way, I'd love to hear from you and more importantly, love to see you as one of our customers. So from me, Darrel and all of us at the team, thanks for taking the time to tune in and I hope to catch up with you real soon. Take care now. Bye-bye.
