making a new shed, this will do me nice
Idea to practice your picking skills after watching YouTube video on lock picking
Ideal for the bedroom if combined with this screwfix.com/p/s…ith-locke-hardened-steel-security-chain-1-5m-x-8mm/9376g. The covering on the chain prevents scratching.

TBH, I wouldn't bother. I got this and it rusted within 2 weeks. In a month, I couldn't use the key to get in it (even with plenty of oil/grease).

I have gone for a standard brass one and it is still perfect.

It doesn't matter about the size of the shackle, if they can't break the lock, they'll just go in from the side of the shed etc.
These are perfect for the bedroom! Ordered a few of them. Thanks OP

Think it does a bit. Someone kindly dremmeled the padlock on mine last year and it's a plastic Keter type shed. It would have been quicker to cut the door than the lock!

Oh wow! That's intelligence for you. Sorry to hear of your burglary.

I just look at my keter shed (storing kids toys) and think, "I just need to put my foot through the side to get in there". The lock is almost decorative.

Smith & Locke, Cooke & Lewis. I wonder what else they cant stick an E on and make a brand name of. Watch out for the new Masone & Roberts range of bricky's tools.

If that's the case put a poundshop suitcase lock on your valuables, I would prefer someone to have to cut through 10mm of steel to get my stuff rather than 6mm. I would have recommended these two,

I got this for 99p at 99p store

If you've got an outside lock, nail a small square flap of plastic to cover it.
Doesn't look pretty but keeps the rain from hitting it directly.

And like Dealmessiahpointed out, it's easier to kick the wood off the side,
but lining the shed with plywood sheeting makes it a lot harder to break in and get back out with anything.
I would not buy this - I used for about 3 weeks, first lock started to cease up then one day tiny key snapped off inside the lock. Luckily I managed to unlock it using a knife to unpick it. Spend a bit more I would say

I had exactly the same. I've gone for the brass ones from screwfix. No problems there.
Not a money saving tip but if you're after a quality padlock that will last a long time outdoors then take a look at the Abloy range made in Finland. They also use a different type of key making it (apparently) harder to bump/pick.

Water gets in these and then can't escape because of the bung over the keyhole. Terrible design.
