Finding the right padlock has never been easier with Yale’s new and innovative range of padlocks


In 1865, Linus Yale, Jr. of Salisbury, New York, patented his most important invention, the Pin Tumbler Lock system that was to make Yale a household name. Inspired by basic principles first used by the ancient Egyptians 4,000 years ago, the new type of lock applied a simple yet ingenious approach that has helped position Yale as the world’s favourite lock brand.

Linus Yale’s spirit of innovation lives on in the Yale brand today, with a complete range of high quality padlocks now available in New Zealand. The range includes open and closed variants, together with a choice of hardened steel, bronze or brass, Boron & molybdenum shackle. A performance rating is available on all residential padlocks to help you choose the right padlock. The range also includes padlocks suitable for commercial and industrial applications.
