Here is a quick overview of 5 types of padlocks:
• The closed shackle padlock: This type of padlock is becoming increasingly popular with time, and it is not hard to see why that is the case. The main component to this padlock type that you are going to want to pay attention to is the fact that shackle, a part of the padlock that is normally exposed, is no longer easily accessible. That makes it particularly difficult for someone to break the padlock with a saw or with bolt cutters.
• The straight shackle padlock: These padlocks are often used to secure roller-shutter doors, but that is most certainly not their only function.
• The discus/round padlock: You will want to note that this type of padlock is circular in appearance, and features a curved shackle that covers the whole of the lock itself.
• The long shackle padlock: This type of padlock is interesting for the way it emphasizes the appearance and strength of the padlock as most people understand a padlock.
• Combination/coded padlocks: You will note that the combination/coded padlock is obviously a keyless alternative to the other types of padlocks that are currently available to homeowners and business owners.
