What is a combination?

The combination of the lock is either found inside the packaging box or will be given to you by the vendor.  The combination is normally a set of 3 numbers that you needed  when turning the dial during the unlocking process.  Turning the dial is basically either clockwise (to the right) or counter clockwise (to the left).

In this illustration (Fig 1.3) , we have 02, 24 and 18 as our combination numbers.

Lets now proceed to the step-by-step instruction.

Step  1.

As shown here (Fig. 1.3), the first number is 02. In this case we have to turn the dial three times clockwise stopping on the first number (02).

Step 2.

Next. Turn the dial counter clockwise passing on the first number (02) once and stop on the second number (24).

Step 3.

Lastly, turn the dial clockwise and stop at the last number (18).

Benefit from Service Improvement with Coin Lockers

What makes a customer happy is when his/her needs and wants are served. As a matter of fact, satisfying customer is one of the best methods in attracting new customers.

coin lockerFor some establishments and recreation businesses, one unknown idea is providing storage for their customers. Taking skating rink or bike rental business for example, most of the customers would find it convenient if they have some place to store their items while they enjoy skating or biking. It is not comfortable for customers to leave their items somewhere in the establishment without assurance of security.

The solution in this case is by providing secured storage as additional service. Coin lockers provide the perfect solution in leveraging both customer service and profit. Coin lockers are storage compartments where you need to insert coin/s in order to use it. Will you still find it unfair paying a small amount over the assurance that your items are safe and secured?

Coin lockers are operated manually and can be set to accept up to three (3) coins. Coin lockers can also be set in coin return mode. Coin lockers could either be made in metal or plastic. Depending on the type of environment, metal locker could be better than plastic locker or vice versa.

Your customer’s don’t need to suffer and you can also benefit from coin lockers. Surely it’s a win-win situation for you and your customers.
