    I had to have the front desk guy at my gym cut my lock off my locker today (combination was right, but the lock just, er, locked up). The embarrassment, of having to follow the guy with the excessively over plucked eyebrows all the way through the gym while he carried bolt cutters, was delightful.

    Anyone have any advice on a dependable lock? I was using a carabiner lock at the gym, but even the regular combination lock I have on my shed here at home is starting to stick when I go to unlock it.

    I just use a standard Master Lock, I've never had a problem and I am still using the one from middle school gym class.

    I use a combination Master Lock. The colored one with letters, and numbers. Always seems to work pretty flawlessly.. One thing that I'd love to find in a lock, is an easy fit for those tight fucking spaces they give you to slip the bar of the lock into the locker. You all know what I'm talking about.

    I picked up a made-in-China Master-lookalike at the dollar store next door to my gym. It is more for the appearance of "security" than anything else, because it handles like a $1 made-in-China piece of junk.

    I don't even use a lock. icon_razz.gif
    It's a small (private) gym... Lucky.

    Can't you just just one with a key and tie the key onto your shoes? (That's what I used to do.)

    Thanks for the advice.

    I went to Sports Authority, and their selection was pathetic (only one combo lock that looked like you could blow on it and it would break).

    Ended up getting a Master Lock from Wal-Mart. Fingers crossed it won't break like the last one.

    Addendum: Just looked at my carabiner lock as I was chucking it in the trash, and it is a Master Lock brand lock. :shrug:
