30mm brass Master Lock~
I have bought and used a number or products from the Master Lock range including this 30mm brass Master Lock as well as a 40mm version. I have been happy with the durability and reliability of the lock as I feel it has performed as it should since I bought it. The look of the padlock is neat and minimal with it being practical in use and I find that the simple shape of the lock body and shackle work well enough together. This lock can be used both inside and outside the home if wanted which I feel is a useful benefit. My experience of using these types of locks outside in all weathers is that overall performance remains good even after taking into account a degree of wear and tear after repeated closing and opening of the lock.
When the lock was new I was provided with 2 new keys to use with it which have remained in good condition since then. I have found the keys to be well made , having enough strength so as not to bend out of shape even when used roughly or quickly when opening the lock. The steel shackle seems to be strong and reliable and is made from hardened steel, which I would hope would make it harder to cut or force open if the lock is ever tampered with. The length of the shackle seems to be adequate in my opinion, as it fits and closes down well when in use. Both size and height of the steel shackle are well balanced and appear to be in keeping with the shape and size of the main lock body.
The lock is still working well with it having a good weight that suits the size of the lock body and shackle. You can get this lock with a longer taller shackle if wanted although this one works well enough in most situations in my opinion. The brushed brass material gives the lock a well made and durable which I feel is due to it being made of strong materials that have not buckled or altered in shape at all since the lock was bought. The security aspects of this product are such that I have felt happy about having this lock in use. Operating the lock is easy enough to do should I need to open it using the key or close it down by hand to lock it. This ease of use is another benefit of this product in my opinion.
~Product rating/ price~
This 30mm lock is of a reasonable size and so far it has worked quite well, with it not having been compromised at all. I feel the lock has done what it should as it has provided me with a fair level of protection and security which has been a real benefit. The cost of these locks is fair in my opinion as they cost around £4 each to buy which isn't to expensive for some extra piece of mind in and around areas of the home that need extra security. My final product rating for this durable lock is 4 stars based on a number of factors such as the cost of the item and its features and benefits. When I factor in the secure functionality, strength and durability of these locks I feel it makes sense to look at these when wanting to update security in and around the home.
