About this product
These locks use a solid iron body and a solid steel shackle, making them very sturdy and secure at the price. They are however not regarded as weatherproof due to the nature or iron as a raw material. We therefore recommend this for indoor use only.
It is important to note that since this lock is an entry level padlock. There are many other similar on the market being sold at lower prices but we have tested them all from each of the different Chinese Factories. Tri Circle, Circlet, Fubang and so on. After a number of years trying the different kinds we feel these are the most reliable of the batch.
That said, we still do not recommend it for use when bought in bulk for lockers since the key differs will repeat after about 50. This means that it is possible for another key to open another lock in a batch of 50 locks or less. In practice this is often not a problem but in some schools and gyms when all the locks are the same it could be an issue.
Each padlock comes with 3 keys each.
