Staying secure with combination padlocks
Combination padlocks are a popular way to keep belongings and property secure without worrying about losing any keys. Another huge benefit is that it's easy to grant somebody else access to the locked item simply by passing on the combination number, without having to have another key cut, like you would with a key system lock. From smaller padlocks suitable for bags to large, heavy duty styles designed to withstand even the most determined attack, combination padlocks offer peace of mind.
Many people's number one security priority is protecting their home and personal belongings. Chain padlocks are ideal for keeping shed and garage doors shut tight. Popular household names like Squire and Yale offer various similar heavy duty solutions, as do unbranded padlock designs. This wide range means that there are lock designs to suit every area of the home, from securing outhouses to locking up bikes in the garden overnight.
Weatherproof combination padlocks are specifically designed to work in wet, hot and frosty conditions without rusting or seizing up. Outdoor locks are reliable against adverse weather, which is why it is not advised to use a padlock designated for inside use only in the garden or outside of a building. Long shackle padlocks are great for spanning between two doors, particularly if it's a reinforced extra strong shackle.
Pocket-sized padlocks are perfect for taking to school or the gym to secure a locker, or to secure luggage when travelling. Often available in multipacks, small padlocks are perfect for a family vacation to protect suitcases and hand luggage from potential opportunistic thieves. Lightweight aluminium padlocks can even be kept in a backpack and used as needed, perfect for travelling or when cycling to work and a strong combination padlock is needed to secure your bike.
