Seems to work quite well. (Although I didn't have to drill out a new "lower" mounting hole when fitting mine.)
About the padlocks. They're only to stop the snatch thief. They can be defeated with a screwdriver. But if it's forced, the way the latch is likely to break will leave the latch still functioning. On the fancy latches, if you break them with a screwdriver, can they still be used to close the lids?
