The Master Lock aluminum lockout/tagout padlock has a solid aluminum body that is corrosion-resistant; functions in temperatures from -35 to 350 degrees F; and has a keyed different 5-pin tumbler cylinder that provides a high security level (10,000 key codes). It has a UV-stabilized powder coated finish that resists corrosion and fading to retain high visibility. Its steel shackle is hardened with boron, has a 1-9/16" (39.7 mm) vertical shackle clearance for extra length, and is plated to resist corrosion. This padlock is part of a lockout/tagout (LOTO) safety procedure required at facilities where a device or energy source needs to be isolated during maintenance and repair. When used according to manufacturer's recommendations, this product is covered by a limited lifetime warranty against defects in workmanship or materials.

Vertical shackle clearance is the distance from the top of the lock body to the farthest point on the inside of the shackle. Horizontal shackle clearance measures the space between the shackle heel and shackle toe. Shackle pull force is tested to American Standard for Testing and Materials (ASTM) F883.
Lockout/tagout (LOTO) safety procedures require that lockout devices meet Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) 1910.147(c)(5) standards for quality assurance. Safety padlocks, also called lockout padlocks, use colors or warning labels to help prevent machine operation or power activation during maintenance and repair. The security level of a safety padlock is measured more by the number of key codes (also called key changes or key cuts) it can offer than by its ability to withstand physical abuse. A padlock with more pin tumblers and higher precision key cylinders has more key codes available, making it harder to pick, and less likely for a large facility to inadvertently give two employees padlocks with the same key code. Keyed alike locks allow one user to open many padlocks with one key. Keyed different means each lock is opened by its own key. Master keyed locks can be opened if the original key is lost or unavailable during an emergency.
Master Lock manufactures padlocks, combination locks, and related security products. The company, founded in 1921, is headquartered in Milwaukee, WI.
