Europeans: do you have rotary-combination locks?

These:



I was in the gym this morning, and when i finished and went to shower, a guy was fumbling with his lock, not too uncommon, but when i got out of the shower 5 mins later, he still was, that was odd.

So i told him, if you forgot your combination, the front office has a master key.
He told me that "No, i just got this combo new, I've just never used or seen in person one of these locks before"
So obviously i looked at him strange and asked you've never seen a combination lock before?
"No, I'm on exchange from Europe, and we don't have these kind"

So i proceeded to explain how to use the lock. I was pretty surprised, just always thought combo-locks were used worldwide

I had one a few years ago...drove me mad after a day so I bought a regular key lock instead.

Yes, they exist in (at least Northern) Europe.

Yea, but even when I did go to school it was more like the ones TEK posted

And that's what the gym at my college uses
