Goldwall Gutter Find

Found this by the side of the road yesterday afternoon. When I picked it up and saw the name, "Goldwall", I thought, "Made in China". Still pleased to find it though. This is my first interchangeable core padlock. Googled it when I got home and my guess was correct. As you can see, it's been lying around on the road for a while, and has obviously been run over many times before being knocked into the gutter. It's 55mm wide, 50mm high and 20mm deep. The shackle is 11mm thick. The body looks to be made of nickel plated brass. I can see a cross head screw inside the shackle hole, so I'll see if I can undo it after I've squirted some penetrating fluid into the lock.

Re: Goldwall Gutter Find

just a note regarding the core.... I know it looks like an SFIC interchangeable core cylinder, but that 8 shape is just a sleeve that goes over the bible of the cylinder and at the other end it has a hole for the screw you see down the shackle hole. This lock is meant to be serviced or rekeyed or even recored, but not the kind of IC core where a control key will slide the core out from the bottom.

cool find man,

Re: Goldwall Gutter Find

Thanks guys. Squelchtone, so just to confirm, that's not technically a SFIC padlock?

Correct. Rekeyable, but not SFIC.
