Did you know...

A certified padlock also needs a certified hasp to create an approved unit.

We have certified hasps in class 3, 4 and 5.

Assemble an external cylinder into a certified padlock?

Our padlocks for Oval, European and Snowman cylinders are sold without a cylinder so that you can choose which cylinder you want to use in the padlock. You may already have a key to the front door and want to use the same key for the padlock on the shed as well? The locksmith can help you with that.

How do I know which cylinder I can use?

Grade 3, 4 & 5 padlocks: The cylinder used in the lock should be certified according to SSF3522 or SSF1090 in at least class 3. Alternatively the cylinder should have at least the same securitygrade according to EN1303 as the padlock.  

Grade 6 padlocks: The cylinder used in the lock should be certified according to SSF3522 or SSF1090 in class 5. Alternatively the cylinder should have at least the same securitygrade according to EN1303 as the padlock. 

The locksmith can help you with which class the cylinder meets. Information about classified cylinders can also be found on the certification companies' website, e.g. SBSC.
