Zedlock has launched a new agricultural gate lock that is designed to be much tougher to break through than traditional chains and padlocks.
The Sussex firm’s latest version comes with a more durable key system than was used on the original model launched in 2011.
The lock is designed to be fitted permanently to most metal field gates and is pretty much a standard five-lever deadlock hidden inside a tough zinc-plated steel box.
A 20mm-diameter stainless steel bolt replaces the regular spring bolt and is free to slide in and out until it is locked by turning the key.
Fitting a Zedlock is a DIY task that takes about 15 minutes. The kit comes with a template and large hole cutter. Other than that, only basic tools, a power drill and 3mm and 13mm drill bits are required.
Extra accessories include a double gate claw and prices start at £58.34.
