What is a waterproof padlock

The waterproof padlock is completely made of non-corrosive materials such as stainless steel. This includes all internal parts. In non-weatherproof padlocks, these internal parts are likely to corrode and get stuck, which leads to the phenomenon that the owner cannot unlock, which will bring many troubles to the padlock owner.

Exposure to sand, gravel, and dirt is bad for any padlock. They will deposit into the interior of the padlock; and may make it difficult to open the glued lock or even unable to unlock it, which will cause the goods inside the cabin to be unable to be taken out, causing annoyance to the logistics industry chain and businesses. As noted by the weatherproof padlock, the marine padlock mechanism and shackle are made of non-corrosive metal.
