Padlock can be changed to accommodate different length and material shackles. The shackles are available in three materials: hardened steel, stainless steel, or molybdenum. Stainless steel shackles are manufactured of surgical grade stainless steel. Brass solid body padlocks come standard with stainless steel shackles.
Shackles are sold separately in Shackle PACs™ by padlock series. They are available in two or three lengths. Each Shackle PAC comes with a 2.5mm hex wrench.
To install a different length shackle onto a solid body padlock:
Step 1. Use the 2.5mm hex wrench to remove the shackle retaining screw from the backside of the padlock.
Step 2. Place a hand over the shackle and carefully unlock the padlock. The shackle is spring loaded.
Step 3. Turn the key as far as possible clockwise while holding the padlock body horizontal with the fixed shackle leg on top.
If not in this position, the ball bearing can stop the fixed shackle leg from sliding out of the body.
Step 4. Once the shackle is out, install the new shackle into the padlock. To simplify the installation, lock the shackle in place.
Step 5. Install the screw. Test the operation of the padlock.
PACLOCKs can be order 0-bitted, Keyed Alike (KA), Keyed Different (KD), master keyed and grand master keyed.
In addition to the rectangular body, there are the hardened steel and stainless steel shackle-less (puck style) padlocks and the hardened steel rounded body padlocks. The hardened steel shackle-less padlocks are available in the step back and flat back configurations.
