Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well with my projects. I have yet to receive a defective item from Klockit.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from does not work reliabably My Clock has been running reliably since 1979 until recently. So I ordered a new movement and it appears to be identical to the one I had. But the new one, order # 3536076 has failed 5 times. 3 times the minute hand has stopped at 27 minutes after the some hour, and twice I've come home to find it with the wrong time. I assume it stuck for awhile before moving on. If I move the time forward 10 minutes, with the adjuster on the movement, it operates ok again..

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to install & set up This is a great movement especially when considering the price. It is worth every penny. It was easy to install and easy to set up with a good set of provided instructions.
Date published: 2016-07-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from More than advertised I bought this as a replacement to repair a clock I have had for over 35 years. Very easy installation and has been working great ever since. One nice feature I discovered is the chimes don't chime between the hours of 11:00PM and 6:00AM. And when they do chime it is a very pleasant, non-distracting tone. Really like it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wrstminster chimes We bought this as a replacement for an OLD schoolhouse clock which had been in storage at some time over the years and mice had eaten through the wire to the chimes. It is fantastic having it back in working order. Easy to install and get operational again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good I bought this a couple months ago it keeps good time and once I got the chime adjusted to the time no complaints. However it doesn't have a mute or volume control. It's not a problem because this clock is in my workshop just making it known

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well! Found the right mechanism for a 30 yr old clock - easy to install - direct replacement and it works well. Mom is happy to have her clock working again. Hopefully this will last a long time - only time will tell.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the Chimes, Volumn too low I make stained glass, installed the chimes in a stained glass wall clock. The clock has an open back, but it hangs against the wall. This somewhat muffles the sound. I would prefer louder sound, but it is OK. The directions for assembly and operation are clear and detailed. I'm selling the clock in an Art Gallery. So far it has had a lot of positive attention. The chimes attract people, no buyers yet however.

How can I set the movement (12249) so that it does not chime while we are sleeping.

Asked by: Kathy M
Hi Kathy, there is no chime silencer option for this clock movement. If you don't want the clock movement to chime at night, you can unplug the wires but we don't recommend doing so. You can also try muting the chimes by stuffing batting or material into the chime tube.

I am unable to remove the minute hand to release the mounting nut on the movement which looks like the one pictured here. It has a knurled knob over the minute hand. is this threaded?

Asked by: wesley
HI Wesley, yes this clock movement has a threaded hand shaft. There may be a cap or thru nut on top of the minute hand that's used to secure the hand to your existing clock movement. Please remove the hardware from your existing movement before removing the clock hands. We recommend using a pair of needle nose pliers to help remove the hardware if needed. Please call us at 1-800-556-2548 and we can help you over the phone too.

My clock cabinet will accept a pendulum length of 15" measuring from the hand shaft to the base of the cabinet. Can the pendulum that comes with this unit be shortened? Also the inside width of this cabinet is exactly 51/2 inches.

Asked by: bobwill
Hi Bob, yes - the included pendulum rod can be shortened to fit your cabinet. The rod has scored marks in 1" increments that can be easily broken off to fit your needs.

What exactly is a breakaway pendulum rod?

Asked by: richardroland76
Hi Richard, the breakaway pendulum rods that comes with this clock movement is 16" long and features scored marks in 1" increments so it can easily be shortened to the needed length for your project.

Hello. Do you have a pendulum that has a smaller length than 19"?  The clock I would be using this mechanism in is only 15 1/8 " tall, and I need a shorter pendulum.

Asked by: Nicko
Hi Nicko, our pendulums come with a 19" breakaway pendulum rod - meaning you can shorten the rod itself to a minimum of 9".

How is the maximum pendulum swing calculated?

Asked by: DMiller
Hi Dennis, the maximum pendulum swing is calculated as a full swing from left to right. It's measured from the outside of the pendulum bob of each side of the swing. If you have any questions on this information, please contact us at 1-800-556-2548 or klockit@klockit.com.

do you have one that you can control the volume and turn off without removing the clock from the wall

Asked by: pat l
Hi Pat, we recommend our Seiko dual-chime clock movement for what you are looking for. It has a volume control option and a night silencer option. See more details here: http://www.klockit.com/products/sku-CCCCD.html
