    Schwinn combination cable lock stuck!

    Help! I have the combination to the lock, but for some reason, the stupid thing is sort of half engaged, and won't let go, and won't go the rest of the way in. This lock here.

    Arrgh! Any suggestions before I grab the hacksaw? This was only the second time the lock has been used, so it is not gummed up, jammed, or anything else that is caused by the passage of time.

    Wow. Did you read the reviews on this lock on Amazon before you bought it?

    Ha! That is awesome that they're so bad. No, sadly, I didn't read the reviews, nor did I buy it at Amazon. My GF bought it at Target, and all we wanted to do was let the stupid thing hold our bikes along a a bike path while she got coffee and we took a quick walk.

    I now won't feel bad cutting this thing tomorrow (assuming nobody's beaten us to it and the bikes are still there)

    Thanks for the response.

    The quality of Schwinn items has fallen a great deal.
