Bargain find op, heat
Wouldn't rate these as anything more than a deterrent. 20 seconds raking.

If you're sticking a lock in a secluded place (oy oy, but eg garden shed) something like this may attract as much negative attention as it deters. You might be better with nothing. Or a real lock.
Few weeks ago I got into lockpicking videos on youtube and bought myself beginners lockpicks set. Went to argos and poundland, got some padlocks and I picked those "challenge" ones in 20 seconds as one of my first locks ever picked.

So there's that.

Quite right. Can usually be picked in just under 10 sec.

Cold, sorry.

Thinking of another job then?
For these? Beginners lock-picking locks. Nothing where security is required.
if some pykie is gonna try break into your shed, theyre sure as hell not gonna pick the bloody lock, they will force it off or smash the window thus no padlock will be any different.

these are 50mm so they look the part, might be enough to deter them onto the next garden.

Says on the website Shackle: 5mm diameter
Says on the box they come in Shackle: 6mm diameter
Actually, the shackle is 7mm. So won't fit the latch I bought it for I went out of my way to pick this up, so I'm pretty annoyed. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr...

Same thing happened to me. Had to force the latch using a screwdriver to increase it by about 2mm, worked a treat!:)
