    I assume the Locking button covers the Cradle release push,
    and when unlocked the Lock button pushes down onto the cradle release ?

    Alan, the lock has a round barrel security type key.  When inserted, the key turns and swings out a steel lever which covers the 'press button' that you would use to release the Sat Nav.  You don't see it because it is behind the actual Sat Nav.  To release the Sat Nav, the key is turned and the metal plate/lever returns to its housing in the lock body.  There is a rubber plug that covers the brass electrical connections when the Sat Nav is removed.  When the Sat Nav is in use, it annoyingly dangles down and swings about on its little strap - however, I just tuck it behind the Sat Nav.   All in all, I'm happy with it.  I'm firmly of the opinion that if you want quality then you pay quality money. (After a lifetime of buying cheap crap LOL)

    This lock is much better than the previous lock I had when I had my 595LM Sat Nav

    I know you techy purists hate this, but it can be clipped off so old 660 lm can be used if necessary
    I used the RT version and it fits perfick!
