    Default Locks on Uke Cases

    Seems all hard shell ukulele cases come with a lock and 2 keys. I have never used the lock, does anyone ever use the lock on their case?

    I figure if someone's going to steal it, they're going to take the whole case and crack open the tiny, cheap lock with a power tool. So there's really no use in locking it.

    Thats what its for!!!!!! I couldnt figure it out.

    Its not for someone stealing it. Its for people to stop messing with it. Like what if you have kids that like to get their hands on things. A lock on the case would prevent them from doing that.

    I dont use the locks because I know I'd lose the keys and I don't want to have to pick the lock or break it open to get to the instrument. Plus I don't really ever need to worry about people getting inside and messing with the instrument.

    I use my lock all the time. One time I set my case down and walked away to get a drink of water, I saw this guy pick up my case to steal the uke, when he saw it was locked he put it back down.

    Kinda of silly, those locks. A thief would just take the case, and quickly. Do you think he's going to politely look inside first to see if a uke worth stealing?!?!

    I've never used it but I think the lock would be useful to keep the cases closed when there are little kids (highly possible when you have little kids of your own) coming over to your house who might open the case and mess with your ukes when you're not looking.

    I have actually used mine at family parties. Little kids running all over the place is a pain when you have an expensive uke around.
