Laminated locks have a long history and were one of the first padlocks to be produced. 100% rust-free this laminated padlock is made with a stainless steel shackle and internal mechanism. A protective plastic sheath provides additional protection against the elements including grit, sand and impact. Ideal for areas that are subject to sea water and other more severe weather and environmental conditions. The precision 5 pin tumbler with self-locking mechanism make the padlock highly secure against picking, while the hardened steel shackle and double bolted case help protect the lock from force attacks. Both the stainless internal mechanism and the external brass body also ensure the lock will function well outdoors.
