"A nice simple and cheap gate bolt. It's not going to offer amazing security as the screws are exposed and so easily be removed by anyone looking to actually get around this even when padlocked. I was expecting this obviously and it's more about the fact that it's there than actual security.
However, I've used a rather small padlock, the type from a school locker (bigger thank the ones you get in a Christmas cracker), and you can still undo the bolt with it locked as the arm that reaches over is to short to stop you doing this. With a chunky padlock you probably wouldn't have this problem but still...
I won't return it however as for the price it's still a fair deterrent."
"Terrible product had a few of these Brenton gate bolt varying sizes and everyone of them can be opened when locked and padlocked. The d is to wide and short allowing it to be manoeuvred open when padlocked."
