    Default storage locks...?

    what are good/secure storage locks??? That cant be cut?

    Kicked a guy out of one of our storage units, due to 3 bounced checks and lack of payment for 4 months...put a masterlock disc lock on his unit, then found him cutting through it with a hack saw(almost all the way through)...I was under the impression that these case hardened disc-type locks were bomb proof.

    There is not much that can't be cut through with a battery powered makita grinder unfortunately. Even the hardest of locks that a hack saw won't touch are no match for a grinding wheel or torch.

    Get one with the hasp labeled "hardened". I tested a Sawzall bi metal blade on one, just made it go flat in 20 seconds.

    I hold a locksmith license and was trained the disc locks are the best for storage units. Like REx said though, no match for a grinder.

    The Masterlock, Abus, and below Brinks Shrouded Shackle are about the best you can get. Few padlocks are pick-proof; even fewer can withstand the grinder.

    When a locky get's called to a storage unit to remove a disc lock - they go straight for the grinder.

    I work part time at a storage faucility. There is not lock I haven't been able to cut, including the one pictured above. I always use a 4" grinder with a cut-off disc. We have just used the round locks as you. If you catch him again have him arrested. Sell his crap now.

    Check out Abloy. Expensive, but good locks.

    Get 3 of these. First one to protect your storage facility after hours. Second one for backup. Third one just for the fun of it....

    If they want in, they're gonna get in. The best lock may slow them down a little, but they're still gonna get in.
