Nice padlock! Thanks for posting!
Had mine on my garage for a good year now, still works perfectly. No issues.

Key seemed a bit thin, lock got a bit stuff one winter and broke. I do I'll locks reasonably frequently.

Is it to be assumed any padlock should stop working after a year?
I wouldn't trust this lock securing anything valuable inside. Okay for a garden shed with basic tools in I guess. I use an Abus disc lock on my garage.
Key snapped in first one within 3 hours , managed to disk cut thro it and took it back to screwfix . The second one the key very stiff after 3 weeks , don’t think it’s going to last very long again .

A bit of GT85 may help.

Spray a bit of wd40 in it before the winter and it will keep it nice and smooth

I'm just giving feedback. Seems to be a few people who've left comments saying they've had issues. Mines been fine, can't fault it.
In one of the Plymouth stores these were on a clearance shelf for £1.99.

Edit, they maybe small (just saying now)

I have one of these from when I used to rent a storage locker and paid around a tenner, this is a great price, highly recommend
These can be picked in ~10 seconds. youtu.be/2yY…117
Avoid, unless for garden shed, thats insured with nothing in it.
There was another smith and locke deal the other day. I actually bought 2 hooks under the same brand from screwfix and both had a manufacturing defect. Just check product before leaving store to be sure.

Sounds a "whole" lot of rubbish then
Saw a you tube once on these type of lock, out of four locks only one was proven difficult to pick, having said that any lock with the right tools under a brute force attack will fail.
Lack of keyhole cover with the lock barrel exposed to all weathers unless regularly oiled will likley fail due to grit or water ingress.
Currently none left in Bristol LWG. Thanks for the nod on these - I was lucky enough to get one.
good product but after two years on the garden shed, it went rusty and was hard to open.

Also same price in home bargains / quality save. Looks to be the same lock.
