Kirk Develops Heavy-duty Interlocking Padlock

- HD Type P improves LOTO integration with interlocking safety systems in extreme environments -



(North Canton, Ohio) – Industrial safety specialist Kirk has launched a new padlock that can be combined with the company’s other heavy-duty series interlocks to create a comprehensive safety system for extreme industrial environments.


Developed in response to specific customer requirements, the HD Type P padlock incorporates a heavy-duty 316 stainless steel body and dowel-pin key design. The padlock features a fully-enclosed housing and gasketed key to prevent dust and debris from impeding the proper operation of the interlock. The heavy-duty design allows users to fully integrate LOTO safety procedures within an interlocking safety system in environments where standard padlocks fail. 


The HD Type P is particularly suitable for industries such as mining, ensuring sequence control when de-energizing switchgear during HV coupler disconnects. Within any industrial environment and application where it is necessary to control risk and sequential safety processes, integrating the HD Type P and a comprehensive interlocking system guarantees the protection of employees and prevents equipment damage.
