• <p>A <strong>padlock</strong> is a lock used to attach two objects together. The padlock usually consists of a block of metal with a U-shaped bar attached to it. One end of the bar is released by turning a key in the lock, or entering the correct code if fitted with such a system. We sell them in multiple colors and sizes, usually in sets with more keys than locks, useful if a key is lost.<br />##</p> <h2>History</h2> <p><strong>Padlocks</strong> were used thousands of years ago by the Egyptians and Babylonians and used extensively in China from 1000 BC. They became more dispersed through traveling merchants. A padlock used to be made of wood and later silver, brass and bronze. Today, among other things, steel has been added to this list. <br /><br />A padlock is said to have been named between the 9th and 11th centuries when the invention was used to secure fenced-in fields. From 1800 onwards, padlocks became more commercially viable and were mass-produced. The security of the locks has been increasingly improved over time. They are usually locked by the clasp that clicks into an internal mechanism in the interior of the lock. They are often self-closing when the clasp is pushed closed, but sometimes a key is also required. Padlock images are used as a popular security symbol and are universally used on the Internet.</p>
  • <p><strong>Vacuum bags</strong> are storage bags where most of the air can be sucked out or squeezed out, leaving a vacuumed whole. When packing bedding, clothing or, for example, garden cushions, the storage space is better utilized. This way you will be able to fit more items in the closet, suitcase or drawers. There are a number of things to consider when buying a vacuum bag. We sell vacuum bags that require a vacuum cleaner but also vacuum bags that can be made vacuum by rolling up the bag. This is useful when there is no vacuum cleaner around, for example on vacation. ##</p> <h2>Use vacuum bags the right way</h2> <p>First, make sure everything you want to store is clean and completely dry. If you store anything that is even slightly damp, you run the risk of getting mold and ruining your clothes, quilts and the like.<br /><br />In addition, make sure you have the right size bag for the amount you are storing.<br /><br />Open the bag on a flat surface and unzip the zipper. Fold the materials and carefully place them in the bag. You can stack the items on top of each other, but make sure the bag is not too full. Make sure there is a few inches of space between the edges of the clothing and the closure. This is because when you get the air out, those extra inches of space will stick together and improve the vacuum, minimizing the amount of air that leaks in.<br /><br />With the clothing in place, use the plastic clip to zipper up the plastic zipper. Go over the zipper again to make sure it is completely closed.<br /><br />When you are finished, loosen the valve cover by unscrewing it, then place the vacuum nozzle without attachments over the cover. Simply press it against the valve, and then turn on the vacuum cleaner. Continue to press it firmly and the air will be sucked up.<br /><br />While removing the air, be sure to press the portions of the <strong>vacuum bag</strong> that are away from the valve firmly, otherwise the end result will be very lopsided and uneven, making it more difficult to store. Afterwards, if you feel that the clothes in it are too close to the zipper, open the bag and move it. Since you just took the air out, the contents will naturally fit a little better even if you open the bags again, since they are not fully inflated again until you shake them up. Then close the bag again, making sure it is perfectly sealed, and use the vacuum cleaner to get the air out again. When you are done, screw the valve cap back on tightly. The self-closing valve won't let air through while you're doing this, so there's no need to rush when you turn the vacuum cleaner off.<br /><br />To open the bag, just pull open the zipper. Do not let the air in through the valve.</p>
