Rated 2 out of 5 by from Check carefully before buying Was asked to fit one by a friend, the fitting instructions show an example where the concrete extends further in front of the door therefore allowing it to be fitted securely, in my case the door came down flush so hit the vertical padlock retainer and would have needed a 10mm rebate in the floor, even then only 1 fixing would be in solid concrete the other would be likely to break away the edge of the concrete.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Must have been faulty? Absolute nightmare to fit - Did I have a dud one? Despite following instructions and ensuring plate was completely flat the countersunk bolts wouldn’t fully submerge into it so padlock wouldn’t lock. I ended up having to drill into the plate to open up the holes and intern weakening it. Very disappointed

Lock is stuck - help

This worked fine for a month and then I could insert the keys and rotate but the cylinder would not pull out to allow the lock to be removed. Now the keys wont even go all the way in. Help.
Asked by: TheMFJ
Yep the same rubbish equipment here for me also. The padlock is rubbish and I dare not use the product and have not for over 3 months but with lock down what can do to get a replacement, not a great deal, just consider what and where I buy as usual.

Could the lock be fitted on a side wall rather than the floor?

Hi Thanks for your enquiry We have never tested it in this situation This really would be down to your judgment Regards Squire & sons

What height is the top of the bar

I want to fit this as a double gate stop on the outside of gates. does it swivel on the base plate if one gate is opened and how high is the top of the bar.
Asked by: jefferingo
Hi thank you for the question unfortunately the product is designed for up and over garage doors, the base is rigid so may not be suitable for your application

Fitting Distance

Whats the distance between centers of the fixing bolts front and back? also how far in front of the garage door is the front fixing bolt hole? I have limited space in the concrete floor before the block paving drive. many thanks
Asked by: petejet73
Front and back centres are 180 mm. The front hole will be approximately 140 mm from the door dependent on the gap allowed between door and cross bar. If you require any further information please email me at I will be able to respond more quickly.
