About this product


This is the longer shackle version of the entry level alarm padlock. By no means a high security lock but still sturdy enough to resist many attacks if the alarm does not put the perpetrator off. For the price it is a lovely product and well made with a pin brass tumbler lock, weather gaskets and 2mm thick steel body.

The longer shackle will allow you to fit it to a wider veriety of applications but it will make it invariably less secure. The long shackle will allow attacks by crow bars and bolt cutters easier since there is more room to maneuver.

Standard Alarm Padlock

 

How The Alarm Works:
This model can be used with the alarm active or deactivated which is useful since they can be set off by strong wind or where it might be accidentally knocked.

Once activated the lock will become live within 15 seconds which gives you time to fit it to your gate, bike, or chain etc. The lock then has a fail safe movement sensor which detects movement within a 5 second period. For example 1 movement within 5 seconds will not activate the alarm. 2 or more movements within 5 seconds will then activate it. This prevents the alarm from being triggered accidentally by wind.

Setting The Lock - Alarm Active

1. Open the padlock with the key
2. Twist the lock U-Shackle 90 degrees and push down
3. After you hear the "Beep" it is activated
4. Lift the U-Shackle up and lock the padlock
5. It is then active within 15 seconds

Setting The Lock - Alarm Inactive

1. Open the padlock with the key
2. Twist the lock U-Shackle 90 degrees and push down
3. After you hear the "Beep" it is activated
4. Lift the U-Shackle up and push until you hear the "Beep" again.
5. The 2nd "Beep" indicated the alarm is deactivated
6. Lift the U-Shackle up and lock the padlock

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.

Each padlock comes with 3 keys.

Uses & Applications:
Even without the alarm these locks are good all round padlocks. However studies do show the alarm to be an effectice deterent. They are often used locked alone to items such as tools, tool boxes, steering wheels simply to warn someone that an item has been moved or tampered with.

We have also seen them popularly locked to tents or items within tents to deter theft at festivals or camp sites.
