Review of the Master Lock Stainless Steel Shielded Shackle Padlock


Everybody, welcome to eatrailer.com. I'm Bobby, and today we're taking a look at the Master Lock stainless steel padlock with shielded shackle. Now this is gonna be an excellent way, guys, of going ahead, securing maybe a latch on this kind of trailer, as you guys can see. Now one thing that's great about it, it does have this shielded shackle. And now that may make it a little harder to get on some accessories, but as you guys can see, it's really easy just to go ahead, turn that key, and there we are, nice and locked in. One thing that is a little unique about it, you actually can't remove the key unless it's locked.

So you are gonna know that it's nice and secure when you remove that key. Now, the shielded shackle here is gonna give you a little bit more protection, as you can't actually find a place to actually get any cutters to start messing with our shackle. Now, the stainless steel construction on this is gonna be excellent to go ahead and make sure we can leave it out here in the weather with no troubles, which is excellent. As, of course, is too with the tumbler being nice and recessed in there. I don't think we're gonna have any issues with anything kind of debris building up on there, which is excellent.

Now the one thing I will say, though, because we have that shielded shackle, we are gonna be a little limited on our spacing. We only have about three quarters of an inch spacing here between us to actually get this on any of our latches. Well, you can kind of compare that to some other padlocks out there, which are more closer to an inch. So speaking of that small diameter we we're talking about, you guys can see we have just a little cable out here that has two hoops and need to be connected by a padlock. Gonna be a little harder for me to actually get this to work here, so I'm gonna have to try to hold it and then flip it.

Now it is working, right, and you can see that was a little bit more difficult. Now compared to similar more traditional padlocks, those guys just have an easier time 'cause they are a little bit lighter. Now the one thing I think this one will really struggle with too, is if you have a lot of points of entry, like this trailer. So, gonna be hard to get all of these keyed alike, and at that point, you're messing with three new keys on your key chain. I might suggest taking a look at some other padlocks here etrailer.com with some key alike options.

One that comes to mind is the Bauer Products padlock. That's gonna give you a lot of great key alike options. But, if you do have only single-access stores, this is still gonna be great. Overall, guys, I think this is gonna be excellent for a lot of your flip down latches or a toolbox, something that only has one entry point, or if you have a single access point on your trailer that can be great. But overall I still think it's gonna do a great job. I really like how hefty the stainless steel is on here. I know it's gonna be lasting me for the years to come, which is great, and honestly I don't think anybody's gonna mess with this. I'd take one look and I'd go, "No thank you." So I think that about does it for our look here at the Master Lock stainless steel padlock with shielded shackle, here at your etrailer.com. I'm Bobby. Thank you for watching..
