Hi, guys! My name is Darrel and I am head of the tech team here at LocksOnline. Thanks for taking some time to tune in, quick look at one of our product review videos. Now we are putting these short little videos together to be able to give you, our customers, the opportunity to see the products that we have to offer in a little bit more detail, in the flesh, so to speak, to therefore then help you make a more informed shopping decision. And obviously, it helps to amplify the stock image on the descriptive text, etc.
So, the product that I want to talk to you today is about a federal locking house staple, or a locking bar, whichever way that you might consider it. Some people call it a padbar also. It's the 4-0-2-5 federal. And it's actually got a sole secure CEN grade 4 Silver Award. So this isn't no simple little padbar, it's actually been designed to give you a lot of security and a lot of strength.
So let's look at the fixings first and then we'll look at this particular part then after. So, these are the back-plates. This, I mean, just look how thick that is! This is the actual back-plate that would actually go on the other side of the door, and this would actually be the plate then that's actually situated on the front of the door like that. And these would then bolt themselves together, that was upside down, these would then bolt themselves together to give you the maximum security over a surface area of the actual door itself.
Now the bolts they come with, these are the standard bolts. It comes with bolts, and it actually comes with the nuts and bolts, etc. to be able to lock the two together, and let me give you a length from that oval bolt as well, just for your information. You're talking there, the oval length is about 50 millimetres, so I would say quite comfortably, that this would sit on somewhere in the region of around about of 40 mil door quite easily. And then give you enough there meet to go all the way through. Maybe slightly less, perhaps around about 35 millimetres perhaps.
So, the actual keep, again, is exactly the same sort of setup there. Have a look at the security on that. It's absolutely impressive beyond belief, and of course that would sit in there like that on the surface and this would be the plate then that sits at the back then, allowing you to bolt it all together.
So, how's it actually work? Because you can see there that this particular part sits on its own. You can take this bar off all together. So when this is actually fitted in, what you would effectively do is it allows you to pop that in there like that, see there's a little bit of a technique, and it allows you then to be able to take this particular piece out. It's a little bit of a fuss when you're trying to do it, first of all, I'm sure I'll get it in a second, there you go. But once you get used to it, it's quite simple. You put it into that corner and it allows you then to turn it around there like that and that would then lock you into position there, so there is no way in this world is anybody going to be able to get into that. And then that would then sit in there like that, and then you've got the plate that sits in there underneath, and the other side at the door and you've got a fabulous degree of security there.
So, once we're talking about it, let's get ourselves some sort of measurements so we can actually size up to see if this is going to fit on your particular door. So, the overall length of the actual padbar itself all the way to here is just over 200 millimetres. The actual overall length from one end to the other there is about 225 millimetres to the end there. The actual thickness of the staple itself, that there is about 12 millimetres, just over the 12 millimetres. The size of the hole, if I can get the size of the hole there, that is also 12 millimetres. So, you'll be able to get a good quality, high security padlock to work in conjunction with this. And that's obviously, what it is designed to be used for.
So, there you go, guys. It's one of the padbars or house staples that we have on our website, of course we've got a whole range on it, but hopefully now that you've been able to see this in the flesh, so to speak, it gives you an idea of what it feels like. It is obviously a premium product that is well weighted and is obviously designed to take a bit of abuse.
