Zedlock is a unique lock product that provides superior security and ease of use compared to traditional devices such as a padlock and chain. It comprises a sliding bolt and five-lever Union deadlock mechanism which can be bolted or welded to the gate frame, and because it is integral to the gate, is much more secure than other devices. The Zedlock cannot be ‘cropped’ by bolt cutters, and gates cannot be lifted off its hinges whilst it is locked (when correctly fitted). The unique feature of all Zedlock models is the long travel (70mm) sliding bolt, which means that it will work even when the gate is up to 50mm/2″ from the post. Order directly from Zedlock or view stockists on the Zedlock website.
