What is a UGears Cash Register?
The UGears Cash Register is a vintage cash register model that is a stylish way to keep your money. It is a relatively big model that looks well-designed and classy with its carved exterior and a visible mechanical part with gears and a lever. This cash register also has a lot more to offer. It is a functional model and not just a beautiful art decoration.
It is inspired by the early 20th-century cash registers. It has an automatic currency reception feature that can be activated by a lever on the side, and as well as a counter that will enable you to keep track of all the savings stored in the cash register. This means that more than being a stylish art decoration, you can also use it to keep your savings.

How Does a UGears Cash Register Works?
The UGears Cash Register has two separate drawers to keep coins and bills, with separate slots for each. The coin slot can fit coins between 10 and 35 mm and is equipped with automatic coin and bill receptors. You just need to lift and lower the special lever to insert coins.
Putting bills in the cash register, on the other hand, is a lot easier. They are pulled in just as they would be in a real ATM machine. To activate the bill receptor, you need to wind up the rubber-band mechanism first by moving the lever up and down ten times for a full-setting. After doing this, the cash register will be able to pull in at least 3 to 4 notes.
You might also be wondering how you can ensure that your money is safe, especially if you’ll be displaying it in your home. To make sure your savings are safe in the cash register, you need to use a code to lock it. Whenever you need to get some coins or bills, just turn the key to pull out the drawers.
