Tesco weather proof padlock
I don't have anything much in my shed but felt the need for a padlock. At my last house I had used a regular padlock on the shed and this went a bit rusty and so wasn't as easy to open and close after a while, so I really wanted. Weather proof one to avoid this.
This one from I store at Tesco is also available online at www.tesco.com and costs £4.20, so not an expensive product.
It comes attached to a piece of card with all of the information and instructions on the back of the card.
Its a 40mm weatherproof padlock and basically looks like any other padlock except that it doesnt look like metal, and so clearly wont rust. It has a steel inner body which makes it very strong and not malleable, and on top of this is black PVC outer to stop the rusting and make it waterproof.
Two keys come with the padlock and to open and close the padlock, the keys fit underneath the padlock. Over this key opening there is a pop on and pop off cover so that when the padlock is closed the keyhole can be left closed to stop water and dust getting inside the lock. A first I found this a bit fiddle but as time has progressed I have found this to be a useful feature as the key still slides easily into the lock.
To close the padlock the arm should be pushed firmly into the hole until it clicks and the to open, obviously it's like any other key mechanism lock.
It fits nice and easily over my shed lock, and assume it is quite standard for this type of door fastening. The padlock is about 8 cm high 5 cm wide and has a depth of about 3 cm.
Another good value good quality product from Tesco. It slips easily onto my shed fastening and as yet, even in all of this rain, shows no sign of wear and tear and the key doesn't have to be forced into the lock as has happened when I have had metal padlocks. Good design very strong and sturdy and very reasonably priced.
A recommended security product for sheds and other outdoor buildings.
