  • Pour three ounces of organopolysiloxane into the cup.

  • Unlock the padlock. Keep it open to waterproof all parts.

  • Use pliers to pick up the padlock.

How to prevent the outer lock from rusting?

Use locking lubricant

You can apply silicone spray to outdoor locks about once a month. Silicon forms a protective seal to prevent the iron in the lock from contacting air. After spraying the silicone, lock and unlock the padlock several times.

Tilt the lock to the side so that you can easily cut the shackle or the side of the metal buckle that holds the lock together. Keep the bolt cutters in a comfortable position near the waist. Pull the handle to open the blade. Place the bolt cutters on the side of the shackle, close to the lock body.

Is the code lock safe?

When using a combination lock, a simple ordinary lock does not provide enhanced security. When you are afraid of losing the key, the combination lock provides a safer lock than other ordinary locks, and because it has 10,000 different combinations, there is no worry about keys.

Can padlocks freeze?

Padlocks and the cold don't go terribly well together. All padlocks, especially combination locks, use complex mechanisms with springs, pins and bars. These all expand and contract with a change in temperature and worse, will get stuck if only a little bit if water gets in and freezes.
