If you want to keep your stuff secure then you will need a good quality padlock. As much as I prefer the ones with a combination, I tend to always buy ones that need a key. We have lockers at work where you need to provide your own padlock to keep your locker secure. This one is small, cheap and secure so it does the job just fine. The good thing about this padlock is that it will last a long time and it can be used for a variety of purposes.
==Price and availability==
This padlock is more than affordable and it only cost me £2.50. Looking on the internet and the best price I can find is on Screwfix where if you buy over five you can get them for £1.75. I don't know why you would need five but they always come in useful.
The padlock is slim and light with its overall frame being made from aluminium. This is good as it means it should not rust. The exterior of the frame is covered in a thick vinyl which gives it a much easer to hold exterior and it also protects it as it is anti-scratch. The shackle is quite thick which makes it very secure as it would be hard to cut through. The dimensions are: Body W x H x Th: 20 x 20 x 10mm. Max. shackle W x H: 10 x 11mm. Shackle dia: 3mm. The padlock comes with two small keys on a ring. I keep one on my keys and one on a safe place so I always have one to hand.
This is a reliable padlock, to be honest I do not necessarily need one as robust as this, after all it is only to go on my locker at work so if I travel on my bike, I have somewhere to store my kit and other personal items while I work. I thought for the price, it is worth getting a branded item that you can trust.
I would use this padlock for any outdoor use such as a shed as I am confident that it is very secure and the fact it will not rush makes it a reliable outdoor product. I was really pleased with the price of the padlock and I like the black cover on the padlock as it makes it a little bit more robust.
