The KryptoFlex 1018 Combo Cable is a 3/8-inch braided steel cable to be used in low-crime areas or as a secondary security measure. The integrated, four-digit resettable combination lock has indexed number dials to provide error-free combination setting. The KryptoFlex 1018 Combo Cable is 3/8-inch x 6-feet.
The lock itself was impossible to close and to open. If I had actually locked my bike with it, my bike would still be there as the numbers locked up and would not turn. Would not have the leverage while on the bike to actually open the lock. The coiled nature of the lock is annoying.
Bottom LineNo, I would not recommend this to a friend
I purchased this lock as it was exactly what I needed. A simple non-key lock to use while I run in a store or grab a quick bite to eat. I would never use this lock on a city street for over an hour, but if you need a lock that is strong, no key needed and secure for short term parking... this is a good choice. Go with a Kryptonite U-Lock if you are leaving your bike on the street out of sight for hours at a time. But for short term locking, this is your lock.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
