For those that may not know, Master Lock is now owned by Sentry Safe, so they're a pretty big U.S. company with U.S. telephone support.

Has the security of these improved in the past couple of decades? I used them in high school. Sometimes I forgot the combo. Took about 5-10min. to pick by short-cut brute force.

They can still be picked in 5 minutes. Not a problem for most uses.

I have one of these that I use for a gym lock.

Works well, doesn’t get jammed up like the Dudley locks do.

Probably the best choice for a gym or school locker since there’s enough traffic that no one is going to walk in with a pair of bolt cutters and slice it.

Outdoors it’s pretty much just a deterrent, you can cut these in a couple of seconds. You just use this to hope that the thief is lazy and finds an easier target

This is a $4 item in a $1 store. I expect a high-end product.

In early 2009 Dollarama began to introduce items priced up to $2.00 (including $1.25 and $1.50 price points). Due to the positive response from consumers to the multi-price point strategy, the stores subsequently introduced items at $2.50 and $3.00 in August 2012. They again increased price points to include $3.50 and $4.00 items in August 2016.

I see a lot of posts for great dollarama deals, but never seem to be able to find any in my local Dollaramas in BC. They must be smaller or I'm not looking in the right place. Any fellow RFDers in the GVRD areas can recommend a larger Dollarama with better stock?
Thanks!

Up here in PG the items often show up after a week or two. Maybe they normally hit the shelves out east first. But I’d say at least half of the items posted on RFD do eventually show up. So maybe check back later?

I've had luck seeing a bunch of the deals at the Terra Nova location in Richmond.. but even then, it's a hit and miss.

Master lock is a good product, but be wary of buying cheap locks at Dollarama. Had a bike lock from them on my bike that rusted up, and I ended up having to use bolt cutters to get it off which was very inconvenient.
