I think your question might reflect some confusion about the Japanese language. There are multiple words pronounced カンジ in the Japanese language. If you type on your computer, you should see a drop-down with many of them (in fact not all possible words with that pronunciation in Japanese). For the most part, each kanji way of writing カンジ pronunciation is a ...

組み合わせ is combination/ grouping. Literal meaning: 組み group 合わせ match/ matching This is unfortunately not proper for padlock. It would give an entire whole different meaning if you are asking for matching padlock (in terms of shape, color, etc. to other padlock/ item that makes the original padlock looks better)

[暗証番号]{あんしょうばんごう} is the appropriate word for those cases. The same word is used for bank account PINs and ten-key door lock pass codes as well.

ランタイム時に may not be that bad, but feels awkward as you guessed. And Japanese ランタイム as a noun tends to mean "runtime library" (such as JRE, .NET Framework) rather than "run time".

(yet, such a ...

The direct translation of "observatory tower" is 展望タワー or 展望塔. Use it if the main purpose of the tower is having an observation deck and attracting tourists. The number of "pure" 展望タワー is not large, but such towers include Kyoto Tower, Tsūtenkaku and Chiba Port Tower. Many towers and skyscrapers have multiple purposes. Tokyo Sky Tree and Eiffel Tower are ...

Just the word "observatory" as you have in your examples for Sky Tree and Umeda Sky Building would be 「展望台」. But if you want to be more specific about the kind of building or observatory, you need to put in a little more information, because a 展望台, just like an "observatory" is not necessarily a tall building or tower. It could also be on a mountain for ...
