Squire Zinc Die-Cast Construction All-Weather Combi Padlock Black 40mm
tried five - thumbs down
Bought two. Setting the combination was was straight forward. Although, unlocking sometimes took some effort aligning the numbers had to be very accurate so the lock would open - but OK.
After a year the wheels seized on one lock, I had not used oil, the lock was used outside with the possibility of a little dirt ingress). With some WD40 and effort managed to get the wheels moving but had inadvertently altered the combination code - lock discarded. No signs of any corrosion though.
Bought two more. One lock failed to close after about one month (this had been used very little) - screw fix replaced. The code has to be algined to a fraction of a mm on these two new locks so that they open - I have no confidence that I will be able to open the lock (it can take a lot of patience and time). Not advisable to use in the changing rooms at the gym or to lock your bolt cutters away - I no longer use these last two locks.

I BOUGHT TWO LOCKS ONE WORKED OK THE OTHER HAD BEEN MESSED ABOUT WITH SO I COULD NOT OPEN IT OR SET THE COMBINATION.

Came with initial code 0000. Worked OK. Changed one digit - tested OK. Changed another - closed and never opened again. I am an engineer and no novice to such things.
