Padlocks are grouped into two general categories: keyed padlocks and combination padlocks. Combination padlocks are the preferred padlocks for many customers for their convenience since there is no key to lose. A combination padlock operates by entering numbers through roller dials on the bottom or a single dial on the face of the padlock body. Combination padlocks with the dial on the face are the most popular choice for school student and other institutional settings. For this reason, they are often referred to as locker padlocks. The non-resettable feature is preferred by administrators to make it easiest to keep track of combinations.

Master Lock model 1525 is the most popular, but there are several other high-quality models including the American Lock model A400K, the Abus Lock model 78/50KC, and Zephyr Lock model 1925. Control key padlocks have a non-resettable combination, but there is also a keyway in the back that allows the padlocks to be opened quickly with a special key referred to as a control key. Authorized key holders such as school principals do not need to open the padlocks using the combination. Another valuable feature of control key padlocks is the control chart.
The back of each padlock has a serial number etched in it. The control chart is a list of serial numbers and the matching three-digit combinations for each serial number. The control chart is very handy since it can be used to retrieve a lost or forgotten combination. The control chart also enables supervisors to re-use padlocks from one year to the next. Control key locker padlocks with control charts are specifically designed for institutional settings such as schools. They offer the security students want with the control school administrators need. Combination locker padlocks for sale online can be found at AllPadlocks.com.
