Found 15th Aug 2017
As above.

Ok perhaps not the most high security padlock ever but for a pound I think these are ok as a deterrent.

Hope it helps those in need.

Heat given but been this price for 2 years. I know as I bought one for the gym. Thegym were selling padlocks
for £5 and during induction, the personal trainer just told us to buy it from Poundland across the road.
Strong and very good locks. still going strong.

So what you are saying, is that the padlock lasted longer than the gym sessions

Because not everybody knows you can buy these for a pound from Poundland.

I didn't know and I picked a couple up yesterday so being the thoughtful type in thinking of others I thought I'd post it in case it could be useful for others!

Heat added
h i these are great if using indoors as after few months rain mine rusted up and not open, but one hit with hammer it open up, also i got a few over few weeks and two of the locks have same keys..i also got the black outdoors ones from pound shop the ones tommy walsh has put his name to as it says weatherproof but they are just as bad and harder to get open if rusted needed to cut that one off...for school/gym lockers, furniture they are great

"Strong and very good locks" erm, nope. Definitely not strong. Could be broken quite easily using very basic tools in a short period of time.

That said, depends what you're using them for. Wouldn't lock a bike up with them but for locking a pair of trainers and some clothes in a locker room they should be alright
A word of warning about padlocks. All it takes to bust open a cheap one is two spanners inside the loop and they will break the side of the padlock open. I did this myself on a padlock from poundland that i had lost the key for and i could not believe how weak they are. If you are protecting something valuable buy a proper padlock.

Yes, a person could do that, or even easier they could bend out the corner of a locker door (which happens frequently at my kids school).
They are only mild deterrents which forces a person to "break in" which criminalises their action compared to just opening an unlocked door. Even more expensive padlocks succumb easily to the right technique and there are plenty of Youtube videos showing how.
A few of these are used in my gym locker room. I think they only have two types of keys as my key opened a few other padlocks of the same type!
Ignoring strength of the padlock - these are ridiculously easy to pick. I bought a couple of these a while ago when I was given a lock picking kit as a gift to practice on. It wasn't much of a practice, put the pick in and just wiggle it around and it'll open within 10 seconds, no skill or ability involved.

But on the other hand, like any padlock - if somebody really wants to get past them they will, lock pick, hacksaw, bolt cutters. These should be seen purely as a deterrent, not as something that will stop somebody being able to get into whatever you're locking.

Those Tommy Walsh ones are terrible, if you remove that little gold plate you can unlock the padlock without the key.
It's there to cover a tiny hole that leads to the mechanism.

Round padlocks I prefer a lot more expensive,had the rear door of the garage broken in ,my fault putting to cheap hasp fitting,found the lock a few weeks later in some shrubs,unmarked and usable.
I was quite impressed when I saw these in Poundland. until I noticed the keys for every padlock is exactly the same. You get what you pay for in this instance.

Can you give me your address please and tell me what you have that's locked up with this padlock.

I'll make sure I fetch the right key!

Seriously - as if - it's high on unlikely any thief will just happen to have a Poundland set of keys on the off chance you've got anything locked up with this padlock.

Chances are if they want whatever you have badly enough they'll just pick or bust it open - same can be said for the vast majority of padlocks.

Thats good because if you need more than one lock you only need the one key on you to open all and spears. I might get a few because of this. Thanks for letting me know
