About this product
About This Padlock:
This version gives a little bit more room to maneuver than our standard alarm padlocks. The shackle is slightly thicker offering more security against attacks. It is also fully remoavable from the body allowing it to be fitted to more applications. It is still a general purpose lock for use on bikes, gates and doors. It uses a hardened shackle and zinc alloy body with a 105db alarm which is activated by vibration or movement.
Each lock comes with 3 keys.
Are The Electronics Weatherproof?
Although the lock does use weatherproof electronics we would not recommend this lock for prolonged outdoor use for weeks where it is exposed to rain. If there is a cover or roof preventing the lock from getting wet then it ok to be used outdoors. Remember to ensure the lock is orientated upwards so that the alarm holes are not exposed directly to the rain. Please see the Xena models as a fully weatherproof alternative.
Can I Change The Batteries?
Each lock comes with batteries installed, although the batteries are readily available from your local supermarket. If the lock is not being regularly activated then you should see at least 1 year battery life from the lock but it is recommended to test it every 2-3 months anyhow.
Uses & Applications:
This lock is an entry level padlock and not independently certified like the Xena locks. They are however a good quality and suitable for various applications. Some of our customers use them on gates, doors and sheds using a chain or hasp. Others simply attach the alarm lock to sports equipment such as kayaks and bikes whilst in a campsite or on a roof rack.
