As with all 83 series house-key padlocks, the cylinders are available in a wide variety of existing house - door keys, eliminating the need to carry extra keys. Series 2 type 83 locks have a NANO PROTECT coated steel shackle for extra corrosion protection.
All 83 series locks have easy interchangeable shackles in case you need a longer or shorter shackle, can be switched from key-retaining to non key-retaining in seconds.
