All gone :(
Its width of the padlock
Usual Master Lock rubbish which can be raked open in about 10 seconds with no real skill at all. You would be better off protecting your valuables with a plastic cable tie ;)
Perhaps you should consider living somewhere else?!
What does the 63mm refer to?
Some people will steal bins just to avoid paying for one. We had a stolen commercial bin that cost us to replace at business rates & it ain't cheap. We also caught another thieving (poo) taking our other residential grey bin in broad daylight just so to carry a bin load of carpet samples that a carpet was closing down. His excuse was only borrowed it without asking but would return it. (mad) Most councils will charge for replacements regardless residential or commercial. Moral of story, if it ain't bolted down, people will steal even if it's bins.
I was taught to pick locks and padlocks 10 years ago by a chap who was ex-British military intelligence. I had three guys from the Serious Fraud Office sitting behind me at the time. I was on an Certified Ethical Hacking course and the trainer liked to keep us busy with some extra curriculum activities during our lunch break :)
Up your budget a few quid and get one of these .. ABUS Outdoor Key Padlock TITALIUM 64TI / 40 https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007VL74I2/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_oUbPBbTXW58DC
You get what you pay for
"page not found".. or is it me?
You don't need a grinder, my mate managed to open this way a £20 - so pretty decent squire padlock
dont forget topcashback
Apparently these are guaranteed forever, if you register. good price, suppose you can't go wrong. http://www.silverlinetools.com/en-GB/Products/Security/Padlocks/260329
Not a bad padlock but without a heavy duty concealed hasp, you'll be wasting your money.
Can't argue for the price, they are a bargain for sure, just wanted to make sure people didn't think a case is secure with a padlock when the zipper is such an easy way in. However it can't hurt to have a padlock.
I see where you are coming from.. I’ve not had a issue and for 15p pence per lock for the piece of mind, not really much to think about. Also, these can be useful for many other reasons.. a.m. gonna use one for gym locker too.
Yes I don't bother locking them, airport security might cut them off if they want to look inside, anyone can get inside a zipped bag in seconds as per that video, the locks do almost nothing other than stop someone next to you in the queue from opening the case by unzipping and popping their hand in the case but the chances of that happening are slim and I leave nothing valuable or important in a suitcase and I'm very careful to not leave the case unattended or close to someone who might try sneak something into the bag.... I work at airports and learned long ago never to leave anything valuable in the case, locks offer almost zero security on zipped luggage and if someone wants to smuggle drugs in your case, a lock isn't going to stop them unfortunately. Flights to the USA suggest not locking your cases as they'll just cut them off if they want to look inside, supposedly 'TSA' travel locks will be opened if inspected but that's often not the case...your case is opened, the locks missing and a notice to say it's been inspected. A better deterent is to wrap your case in clingfilm as you see done on oversized or combined luggage, a service offered at Airports at the luggage / lost property place.
All luggage have zips.. does that mean you leave your luggage unlocked?
Hardly worth bothering if your luggage has zips, you can open a zipped suitcase with a pen!
I've just ordered a set of these, after doing some fairly extensive research including taking my doors apart. The locks themselves. Better than the padlock option due to the tamper resistant spindles. If they do snap your lock, then this adds a good 2nd layer of security. It won't stop them forever, nothing will. But it's all about the amount of time, noise and effort it takes to get in that counts. Of course, having a couple of highly territorial GSDs the other side of the glass is my best 3rd layer of security. Lastly a word of warning, the website payment with PayPal is AWFUL. Took me 3 attempts to get it to work. If you make a mistake (upper case in email one of the several times you have to write it out for example) then just give up and start again. When you go to fill the form out to buy this, you put name and address etc. Then you click on PayPal, it copies your info over to the PP popup window, BUT once you have finished the PayPal form, it will take you to the main website page again, but in the new small PayPal window. You have to fill out all your data AGAIN and then you can complete it. Note, you will need to go back to the top and manually add your email address in AGAIN... the page takes you to step 2 for address, but go up and do that too. Dumb site, really dumb. Hopefully this info will save anyone else having a faff with it.
Was thinking exactly the same as this picture. My Dad used to use a cheap poundland style flexible bike lock around the handles of his French doors when he went on holiday etc. Seems to do the same job.
Those look goods but they don't act as a visual deterrent. They are a good supplement to the Patlock so thanks.
You win Laugh-Out-Loud prize today. Good to see someone making sure the filth humour isn't left out of serious posts (lol)
Yep they do some cheap plastic ones but if you shop around you can get metal ones
I prefer bolt cutters.
Cant someone just post a deal without everyone 'picking' it apart ;)
I just use "ex por", much less hard work, makes a cool sound too! (not recommended for nighttime raids where you need to be quiet.)
I know! I know! Rip-off Britain, right?
Open to suggestions on alternatives at a similar or lower price point as I require a secure padlock.
Judging by YouTube EVERY lock can be picked even the highest security padlock currently on the market. No lock will ever stand up to an angle grinder (even the most hardened and thickest chains can be cut in something like a minute), but if you're looking for something that provides a deterrent with a good CEN rating this is one is as good as any. Beware the Abus diskus stainless steel locks. You can burn your way into these in under a minute (according to YouTube).
£50 ! £5 more like lol Do you know haw easy these big Squire locks can be picked ? maxmix
That will be a Jeremy Kyle show then.
She might be pregnant
I don't want to see another 600lb life on the TV.
you ol romantic you..... ;)
Great price for a set of simple combination locks. Thanks OP
you serious? what good is that then.
They have these in blue as well. Will pick a pack up - one to use for my gym locker, saves carrying a key around with me. Thank you.
You're being funny - right?
It's a small deterrent. All burglar proofing is only a deterrent. If there are easier pickings elsewhere, they will go elsewhere. It may make them think that you have something valuable, but not with a £5 lock :)
The only way these are "weather tough" is that they laugh at sunlight. Rust as if there's no tomorrow.
Master Locks offer virtually NO security and can be easily picked. Here's an example of a typical Master Lock being picked with a cat food tin lid ;) . ;)
Poundland stock a similar one.
Screwfix also offering a steel bow saw for £2.49 so you can test it yourself! https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/forge-steel-bow-saw-24-610mm-249-screwfix-2907385
Securing the dungeon.
On hand for what?
Also larger sizes, and some steal and brass ones. These are also on buy 5 save an additional 10%, so worth buying a variety of sizes to keep on hand
Hide yo' kids and hide yo' wives!
Normally if I mention something in a comment someone posts it within the hour, not this time though so I have done.
Thanks for the tip! ;)
Very true but is any suitcase worth a lock when all u have to do is push a pen tip through the teeth of the zip, then pull the locked zips back around the case to seal it
Very bad review
Used to unlock a mates bike at school, who had the 3 wheel combination lock for his bike, and lock it up at the opposite end of the bike shed. Eeeeee, small things. Lol They were very easy to crack.
I ordered some from eBay a couple of weeks back , different seller, but look identical to these. Found that once you set the combination to your required digits they could be unlocked easily by anyone. Slight upwards pressure on the u shaped piece and whilst doing that gently turn the digits until you feel slight resistance , continue until you have all four numbers done. Ive had ones before that have been fine , but the seller obviously knew there was as issue as they gave me a full refund and didn't want the locks back. im only posting as a warning so that you test this type of lock if you buy cheap ones . Not not voting on the deal OP as mine might have just been a dodgy batch.
Easily bumped with a safety pin (allegedly)
I bought one of these to secure my bike. BUT, someone stole it..................................... .................................not my bike..........................my LOCK!
Also same price in home bargains / quality save. Looks to be the same lock.
I have one like that just give it a decent wd40 treatment been fine ever since.
good product but after two years on the garden shed, it went rusty and was hard to open.
Currently none left in Bristol LWG. Thanks for the nod on these - I was lucky enough to get one.
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.
By same lock I mean same style with an open shackle which leaves it useless against two spanners.
Thnx. Thats alls i needed to know Ill go out and purchase one first thing (y)
Yes, the Screwfix stock management system will advise the warehouse operative which aisle and bin to go to for it. ;-)
Can these be picked easily?
Thanks for this
Thanks OP, just ordered it will hopefully slow down undesirables from stealing items from my shed.
Ordered, will be good for a bike lock for a cheap bike..
Ordered, thanks Waiting for somebody to post a video of how easy these are to break
Funnily enough I actually bought one of these yesterday, brilliant quality for price.
