    To stop idiots like you from getting out?
    Please get yourself over to the talk forum where you will find lots of friends and leave the trade forums to the grown ups.

    It is an offence to place your rubbish in another person's bin. You should make the council aware of the problem, it is their bin, fitting a lock may not be acceptable o the council.

    i told the council and asked them to send another pin, they sent one after 2 months but i dont think they care about the offence

  8. Lol - after all that!

    Have to say, I'd imagined the holes were for passing a bolt through the lid, but clearly not.

    I can see that if the bottom of the L bracket is free to swivel in towards the bin's body, then the top part will also swing away from the lid!

    Does the L have a longer side? If so, place that along the lid, slip the shorter length in to the bracket, pull it down as far as possible and also press the lower part in towards the body until it touches; the top bracket's tip will then lift slightly from the lid, but the main part of it should still be pressing down on the front edge of the lid. Fasten the padlock - and curse yourself for not for a better design.

    What a palaver.

    I think if there were some bolts then that would help but no bolts are provided and to be honest there are no instructions at all .
    i put the long end over the lid but that makes no difference its very easy to list the whole thing off without unlocking the padlock
