      Very helpful



      A good buy

      It is sad that we can't trust the people we work with, but that is the situation we are living in. I have a locker at work and I had a padlock for it, I lost the keys so I used to hang the lock through the shackle and keep it closed. Unfortunately I had to report to my manager that someone had been in my locker and taken money from my purse. I was really upset by this and complained to my manager who in turn put a request in for a new padlock for me. I am pleased to say that this lock is keeping my locker safe so safe. 

      ==Price and availability==

      The padlock is a cheap and cheerful one, it costs £3.99 which is good for a hardened steel padlock.

      ==Application and description==

      The 83/55 padlock is made from alloy steel and is silver in colour. The padlock is robust, and well built with a key fastening. The key mechanism is smooth and it is easy and quick to open. The padlock slips over the hatch and keeps my locker secure. 

      ==My experiences==

      I am pleased with this padlock as it is really solid for the amount it cost. I did not have to pay for it but I would probably have spent a little more on the padlock. Luckily, I didn't need to sped any more as this is a really good quality piece. As my locker is inside, I do not need to worry about water getting in it and corroding the metal, however the padlock packaging states that it does not corrode or rust. This is due to the body being coated in a chrome anti corrode finish. 

      The shackle and barrel are smooth, so that when you click the shackle on place, there is no messing about, it slides in and locks straight away. You do not need the key to lock it, it automatically locks itself, you only need the key to open it. 


      It is very poor that I has my money stolen and it just goes to show that you can not be too careful. This new padlock is great, I have the key on my work keys so I will not loose it and I get peace of mind while I am at work. Well recommended.
