Customer reviews for Sure Lock



Very disappointed in how this is made. The black rubber boot does NOT cover all ports, in fact the pin hole size on off switch hole is visible and you can even see a red LED thru it when it is plugged in(not an issue during performance). If the spectator is holding the lock when it unlocks, they will clearly and obviously FEEL the small motor inside release what must be a solenoid type mechanism. In total silence you can audibly hear it, but it requires listening carefully. The charge port is ridiculous. The tiny 1-2mm (not 3mm) diameter pin charger has to be pushed in so hard, that if you are slightly off angle you will eventually break it. And it is an incredibly snug fit, which the video says is by design so it doesn’t fall out. But why would you ever need to hang the thing upside down while charging? Makes no sense. Also, guess what the ONLY thing that is specifically NOT covered by the manufacturer warranty?!! The Charging PORT! So they know they have a problem and a poorly designed, not robust, engineering flaw in this aspect. The lock also feels loose inside and light weight for its size. Clearly the electronics take up space and they did not account for any attempt to mimic the proper solid feel of a real lock by adding ballast weight. I will probably return mine since it will not withstand simple scrutiny.

  • Shay asks: The lock comes with what ? 1 remote ? or couple of them ? what you basically get if you buy this beautiful thing?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: You receive the lock and remote as well as a few other things to help with the other features.
  • Richard asks: What does the RFID option allow you to do?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: Unlock the lock.
  • Marc asks: doesn't a lock with a charging port give away that there are electronics involved with lock or is there a way that it stays hidden?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: All locks come with a black sleeve that covers all ports and any holes that could be exposed.
  • Rich asks: Is there a non obvious method to keep the battery from draining when not in use, as in, it's "off" when unlocked?

    • 1. James answers: Great question. Yes, there is a 90-minute built-in timer. When the lock is not used for 90 minutes the lock will automatically turn off. Every time the lock is used the timer resets to 90 minutes before it turns off. Also on the previous question. The black rubber boot that fits over the lock hides all ports and looks normal because many real locks have the same rubber boot.

  • Brian asks: Is there a way to still open the lock in the unlikely event the electronics fail?

    • 1. Tim answers: No there is not. The tutorial says the lock must be charged

  • Piers asks: Q. When the lock is 'unlocked', does the clasp need to be pulled to open, literally, or will it just slide open with gravity? The former would be preferable...

    • 1. Tim answers: It will slide open with gravity, or very easily if lifted up. The hasp does not have the typical “hook” or “notch” that a normal padlock has. its a dead giveaway that its magnetic or solenoid based as an electronic release mechanism, and you can feel (and even hear if its quiet) the small motor both disengage (unlock) and engage (relock) the hasp when triggered to do so. Especially if held in your hands, you can easily feel the release mechanism operate thru the black rubber boot, which by the way contrary to a review above, DOES have a small pin hole thru which you must poke an activator similar to a SIM card key, in order to power on the lock.
