Published: 11 May 2016
The ABUS Diskus 24IB/50 was one of twelve padlocks tested by 'Practical Boat Owner' magazine with padlocks supplied by online specialist Nothing But Padlocks.
ABUS wins best padlock for marine users
The PBO tests were conducted to determine the "best padlock" for marine environments, taking account of cost, corrosion, strength, durability and consequent security.

The full test can be seen on line at http://www.pbo.co.uk/gear/12-padlocks-tested-24620 The padlocks were placed in a saltwater spray tank for a month to simulate a year of normal use, then removed and tested with keys for function and examined externally for corrosion and rust.

Once passing this test the padlocks were then attacked with 18" bolt croppers to determine a level of time attack resistance. The Diskus 24IB padlock passed all tests with honours.
