Closed Shackle Padlocks

This type of padlock is designed to expose as little of the shackle as possible and therefore make it more difficult to attack with bolt-cutters and saws. Many insurance companies require you have a closed shackle.

It is important to remember that both Discus and Shutter Padlocks are also classified as 'closed-shackle' since they're design automatically affords them this status. You should check with your insurance company however since their definition of 'closed-shackle' may vary. We have more information on in our Insurance Advice Section.

Additionally, if you are thinking of using an existing chain with your new closed shackle lock, then please read this article first on chain type.
