i have customer needing good weather proof padlock, for outdoor use on side of building. Is frustrated with cheapo ones rusting up all the time, I have showed him a federal 4 wheel combination lock, that comes with a plastic type cover all round, and has plastic on the shackle and body and even a flap underneath to hide the wheels. Problem is its going to be used by various tradespeople with the info of the code number. These padlock are not very self explanatory ,in that you have to depress the shacle after you have dialed up the right code to open it. In these water proof ones, the shackle is hard to depress to release, even when u know how to do it.
Anyone know of a quality weather proof padlock , that is very easy to use when someone tries to use it for the first time. E.g. a button or lever next to the wheels, anything but the safe dial type too i guess.padlocks weather tough is the type i have and they didnt think was user friendly enough
