Squire Steel All-Weather Combination Padlock Black 48mm
Solid build and all weather
I needed an all weather lock to secure a cable loop around my ladders. Most of what I looked at were either not big enough or had a very poor review for rusting in a matter of weeks. I've already got one of these which has been on my shed door for at least two years so know the weather proofness is good. The price was also exceptional from screwfix so it was a no brainer for me plus the combination aspect means I don't have to remember the key!

Sick of cutting more and more keys for staff I got one of these - add a memorable code and problem sorted.
Time will tell as to its suitability for outdoor use, and the makers 'all-weather' claim.

1 year of use and thumbs down
Having used two of these locks through one of the wettest winters on record and all the seasons I have to say I am unimpressed. Without regular lubrication the action seizes up. I had to return one lock which stopped locking. It's replacement lasted 5 months before it stopped locking but in that period I had to consistently battle with aligning the code to get it to open.
Overall, I don't rate these as weatherproof and despite the advantage of not having to carry a key it just doesn't last as long as it should.

Quality feel and ease of use, gives good peace of mind.
