Heavy Duty Lockable Pad Bolt Galvanised 410mm
Heavy duty it certainly is!
I bought 4 of these for a major garden project and nearly did myself an injury when I went to pick them up from my local Screwfix store. They are certainly extremely robust, constructed of very thick plate and do exactly what they're supposed to do very efficiently. There's a good covering of galvanizing and locations for screws and coach bolts for added security. Only downside is what it then cost me for the padlocks to fit to them, as a big chunky pad bolt needs a big chunky padlock to go with it (or 4 in this case!). In terms of overall security however, I reckon they're second to none and will almost certainly outlive the gates they're fitted to. Thought the price was a little on the steep side but I do accept that like everything you buy from Scewfix, you only get what you pay for; with a cheaper product, I very much doubt you'd get the quality, so I don't really have room to complain. Overall, very satisfied with my purchases but be warned; if you go to buy them,this is a reminder that they're heavy!
