  5. The thing is with a coded lock there are no keys to lock inside your locker thus saving you from a run to the guardroom and back with a pair of bolt cutters when you should be getting washed shaved and dressed.
  6. From memory, the holes to fix your padlocks to are not that big, so don't go getting the biggest fecking ones you can find.

    I think I used to have some Chubb* ones which were about 1.5" square with the loopy bit being about .75cm in diameter

  7. Until you forget the code... again :D

  9. if you go for coded ones, be careful what number you use.

    ie Don't use either your army number or your pin number!
