Zedlock 'Machinery Innovator of the Year' finalist in British Farming Awards
Zedlock director, Bruce Robertson: "I invented the Zedlock because I was looking for a more secure alternative to a padlock and chain. In the yard at the farm I have an Ifor Williams trailer, amongst other equipment, and I was only too aware how easy it was to crop a chain with bolt cutters or smash the padlock with a hammer.
"However, in creating the Zedlock I also solved two other problems; locks freezing and losing the padlock. Because the Union lock mechanism in a Zedlock has brass levers, it is much less prone to freezing than a padlock, and being integral to the gate, there is no chance of losing the padlock."
Zedlock are also offering an Industrial range - with Zedlocks to suit frames from 10mm to 80mm diameter which are supplied from stock and specials to suit gate frames of up to 150mm being made to order.
A T-handle, operated from the underside of the lock box, is ideal for sheeted gates. Double gate kits, hinge pin protectors and keying-alike are all popular options. Upcoming developments include locks for shipping containers and potentially an automated version.
