About this product
Important: Please note that these locks are individually made to order so the usual next day delivery option is not available. Please allow 10-15 working days for delivery.

How is this lock restricted?
A restricted padlock is one that uses a key that cannot be copied and is not in common circulation. In this specific case the ABUS Eighty Three AL lock uses a special Bravus 1000 dimple key cylinder.
With patent protection until 2030 and unlimited trademark protection, it also has an intellitec system which protects against unauthorised key copying.
It is important to note that no lock or keyway is 100% protected and in the same way, no padlock is 100% pick proof. Although there is currently no way to copy the Bravus 1000 cylinder, criminals and illegal lock-smiths are always developing new ways to overcome security. The only thing that manufacturers can do is to keep on top of research and constantly develop new and unique products.
About This Padlock:
The ABUS Eighty Three range has evolved from their 83 series which led the way in high security padlocks. These Titalium range of padlocks use the same technology in terms of high security features such as ball bearing locking which prevents level and force torsion attached with crow bars. They also use special anti-pick barrels and hardened alloy steel shackles.
Each padlock is delivered with 2 keys each and can be made to be keyed alike, keyed different or master keyed. Additional keys need to be ordered directly with us for security purposes.
Please note that these locks are "key retaining". This means you need to lock the padlock before being able to remove the key. This prevents you from accidently leaving it open and enabling someone to access the restricted cylinder.
