. Both locks have clinched brass bodies without any rivets.

. Europa Diamant Padlock uses pin cylinder technology and has 4 dimple keys which cannot be duplicated easily, giving it robust safety. Godrej Navtal uses traditional lever technology and has 3 toothed keys which can be very easily duplicated, compromising the safety of the lock.

. The Europa Padlock has a rating of 2 tons on the breaking point of the shackle. For Godrej Navtal the rating is unspecified.
