Menards - Don't buy Tru Bolt locks
I purchased two Tru Bolt locks from Menards.These are simple security or locker type locks opened with a key.
The two locks also have a battery inside with an audible alarm that activates when the lock is moved ever so slightly. I purchased the two locks in September of 2012 and placed the two locks onto my utility trailer. In May of 2013 I went to the trailer to remove the yard equipment and found that the tumblers in both locks were loose and came out of the lock when I inserted the key. Upon examination I found the pins used to secure the key lock had fallen out of the lock case over the winter.
I had also zip tied the locks to the doors of the trailer and nothing was disturbed or tampered with. I paid about $19.00 a lock for what turned out to be really cheap *** sold at high prices.
I have now went back to the tried and true basic Master locks.Don't waste your money on anything Tru-Bolt at Menards.
Monetary Loss: $40.
