I made the mistake of buying a few Master Lock locks when Homebase were having a big clearance... Then I watched this: youtu.be/Btr…HuY


Apparently the name is a running joke in lock-picking circles. Suffice to say I won’t be using the locks to protect anything of value

I had a masterlock identical to the one here and mislaid the keys to it so watched the above video on lockpicking and knocked up some makeshift tools and opened it in 2 mins as a complete novice so I certainly would not recommend one.

Yes they are very easy to pick even for a novice because the pins in the lock are huge. But I think the point of these padlocks are for a visual deterrent. Another bit of advice is water still gets into the internals and they start to cease. Be sure to add plenty lubricant before use

Link please for opening. I'll pick my own....phnar-phnar...
I got the Challenge pack of three locks @ £12 before winter. No idea how secure they are, probably not great, but in terms of waterproofing they work better than any other we tried. No water collected in the bottom cap.

Well, it is a fiver!
But also, have you watched that program Storage Hunters or similar - they take down all locks in less than 1 second so making that 12 seconds pretty pointless.

Ultimately the lock is there for chance opportunity prevention and if someone was going to break that lock, they wouldn't be picking it, they'd be breaking it in under 1 second.
normal price for good waterproofs is £4:99 in Layland stores.
btw, voted hot
I have one of these and several non-weatherproof master locks. The non-weatherproof ones are much more weatherproof than this.
