About this product
The ABUS Rock padlocks are made in Germany and continue to be hand assembled. This basically means the quality control is as good as it can be. We get very few returns on these locks. Maybe less than 0.1%.
The body is solid hardened steel and the shackle is also 11mm hardened steel making it very difficult to cut or bolt crop. The steel grade is also very high which can be a problem in cheaper locks. Unless hardened steel is stringently controlled it can end up either too soft or too brittle. A fine line between the two needs to be met.
The Rock padlocks are all made using double ball bearing mechanisms which means that a single cut of the shackle will not allow it to open. Read this article to understand the advantages.
This lock can be made with our unique "Key It Twice" service. This allows you to have a secondary set of keys which, when used, will automatically disable the first set. For more info on this please Click Here
