Padlocks are used to secure properties and their highly valuable contents:
+ Residential properties and gates
+ Residential outbuildings and garden sheds
+ Industrial and commercial properties
+ Toolboxes, lockers and even access to vehicles
While many padlocks are manufactured with hardened steel shackles, there is still a high risk that padlocks can be removed using bolt croppers or padlock shims. Without wishing to advertise the dubious use of padlock shims, the reality is that they exist and will be used to render your padlock useless, and to gain access to your property and its possessions.
