This is where your padlock is coded to work on an existing Garrison key. For instance, we can code your padlock to work on any Garrison key of your choice
This is where, for example, you have five doors in an office and each door (doors 1 to 5) have their own key, and those keys will only work on the correct door, i.e., key two will only work on door two, key three will work on door three, etcetera. A master key would work on all five doors. Often cleaners and managers may use a master key to allow access to all doors, and employees can be restriced to their own door.
This is often refered to as "the loop". A shackle is the silver bolt which secures and locks the padlock. This is the part which people commonly try to cut off, so getting a thicker shackle will provide additional security.
Now that you know what the shackle is, this will be easier to understand. A shackle can be covered up by part of the body of the padlock to thoroughly increase the level of security as it is protecting the shackle, this is known as a closed shackle. An open shackle is where the shackle is exposed.
