Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well with my projects. I have yet to receive a defective item from Klockit.
Date published: 2016-01-29
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 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for the price. I bought this to replace one in a nice oak wall clock. It was almost half the price of others I priced online. My only complaint is the previous clocks chime sounded like bells and this one sounds more electronic synthesized.

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.
Answered by: Klockit
Date published: 2016-06-20

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

Does the movement count the hours & does it chime on the 1/2 hour?

Asked by: Skull
This chiming clock movement plays the Westminster melody on the hour, a progressive melody on the quarter hour, and counts out the hours.

I have a Dunhaven Regulator pendulum purchased 1985 that just recently stopped working all together (31 years). The movement plays the Westminster chime on the hour not every 1/4 hour. Any movements like that? No second hand on mine.

Asked by: kenden
Hi Kenden, we would recommend our Tubular Quad Chime Quartz Clock Movement (depending on the shaft length needed). The tubular quad chime clock movement will allow you to set the Westminster chimes for only the hour chimes or the ¼ hour chimes. If you need assistance matching up the correct shaft length please contact us at 1-800-556-2548.

I have a Seth Thomas Eve Marie wall clock with pendulum. The current movement is a W2215 movement. I understand an original replacement is not available. Do you have a substitute that will work?

Asked by: Rweiss50
Hello, we are unable to provide a replacement recommendation based off that reference. Can you please contact us at 1-800-556-2548 or klockit@klockit.com with the measurements below? (You will need to remove the clock movement from your clock) We'll then be able to help you find the proper replacement for your Seth Thomas wall clock. (1) Thickness of material the shaft will have to travel through including the clock face and any material the face will be mounted to (maximum dial thickness) (2) Total length of the hand shaft on the movement. Please measure the entire length of the shaft from the base of the movement where the shaft comes out of the movement to the tip where the hands attach to (total hand shaft length) (3) Your movement's case dimensions (4) Minute hand length from the center mount hole to the tip

I ordered the #12244, but the shaft is too big for the Seth Thomas Register clock that I have.  Do you have one with a smaller shaft?

Asked by: Dixie
Hi Dixie, the easiest solution here is to first try shimming the hand shaft with a few rubber gaskets or washers. We sent more details to your email address.
