" After finding cable devices have a weak spot , the joint to end fixing which is easily chopped with bolt cutters. I would reccommend this product to any body since it needs angle grinder to remove with plenty of time and noise. A great item but heavy. I descovered it is essential to push the key fully in to operate correctly, partial entry will give a half turn of the lock only. "

" This is a excellent piece of kit. Shackle is 16 mm Diameter , fixing hole for chain or D lock 50mm.
Bracket is 110 mm square with plastic cover 200 mm Diameter of 7mm thickness., a rain and bolt cover.
Best to make sure hole depth for securing rag bolts is correct or it will cause problems. Not engaging with captive nut etc
Bet my house whould be pulled down to remove.

Can this be set into a brick wall on the side of a house? Or into large paving stones that are joined by concrete?

DO NOT USE IN PAVING STONES THEY CAN BE SHATTERED WITH HAMMER.
USE AS WALL FIXING OR SOLID CONCRETE FLOOR ONLY
