A popular locking device in Russia remains a hinged lock. However, it is less and less like old barn models, changes have occurred both in appearance and in internal content. Despite the design vulnerability, manufacturers find different ways to increase the level of burglary resistance. IN stores in our country a wide range of mounted locks, they differ not only in price, but also in functional opportunities. With the help of our experts, we’ll try to determine important selection criteria.

Padlock recommendations

Kinds. Today in the market you can find several types padlocks.

  1. The barn castle remains a classic of the genre. It consists of a body, special sliding mechanism and arms. Design advantages simplicity and reliability, reasonable price and durability. But such models are considered the most vulnerable in terms of hacking view.
  2. Reliability is characterized by a lock with a locking finger. In this the design of the body has a curved shape, and the bow is made in the form finger. He has a high degree of reliability, but there are certain inconvenience with opening and closing.
  3. It is very difficult to open the overhead lock. The body is completely hidden retractable finger, so it is not possible to cut it off. The downside of the model is the high price and inconvenience in operation.

Structure. By design, experts share padlocks into the following groups.

  1. Open models are devices with hidden locking mechanism and open bow. In such castles it is important that the temple was hardened and thick enough.
  2. In mushroom models, the bow is almost completely hidden in body, only the upper part protrudes outward. She reminds mushroom hat.
  3. Semi-closed locks have straight fingers that are partially hidden in the enclosure.
  4. Closed are padlocks that are not visible locking bow.

Core. One of the important components of the mounted The castle is the core (larva). She happens several types.

  1. Cylinder core consists of a frame or pin mechanism. The displacement of the pins is carried out thanks to the notches on key, only after complete immersion of the key in the larva it will be possible turn the cylinder.
  2. The leveling core is considered quite reliable. Offset Suvalds in the right position can only be the native key.
  3. Disks can be used to lock the mechanism. Such constructions are called disk.
  4. The screw cores are based on the principle of screwing the bolt, equipped with a threaded part.
  5. The most modern type of larva is considered code. To to open the lock, you must enter a pre-invented code.

Materials Padlock manufacturers use several types of materials.

  1. Steel is the most durable and reliable material. But steel locks are notable for their high price and high weight. Therefore many Manufacturers make only temples of steel.
  2. Cast iron is cheaper, while it is not inferior in strength to steel. But if there are impurities or voids in cast iron, then the design becomes fragile.
  3. In its pure form, aluminum is rarely used, most often manufacturers use alloys based on it. Main advantage locks will be light, they are not subject to corrosion. But durability aluminum cases leaves much to be desired.
  4. Brass is most often used for the manufacture of cases and cores. The weakness of the material is considered soft, drill easily enters the larva, incapacitating it (this way of hacking thieves are often used).

The method of opening / closing. All padlocks can be divided into two groups according to the method of opening / closing.

  1. Mechanical models imply a key. More than users, the more there should be keys.
  2. Smart locks are controlled using mobile applications or fingerprint. The device memory can store 10-50 fingerprints that allows not to carry keys to all subscribers.

We have selected 18 of the best padlocks in our review. All of them implemented in the trading network of our country. When allocating seats the editorial staff of the magazine relied on the opinion of the expert community, given the reviews of Russian consumers.
