Almax Security Chain Immobiliser Series III 16mm and Immobiliser Series IV 19mm + Padlocks

A Review of the Almax Immobiliser Series III and Series IV high security chain. Also showing the Squire Stronghold CEN Grade 6 padlock offered by Almax and other padlock options like the Abloy PL362 and the Anchor Las 590-6 with euro profile preparation both also CEN Grade 6 padlocks. This chain should be used with precious bikes and motorbikes but can also be used for other high security purposes or wherever you need a chain that can not be cut by bolt croppers.

wait till I come along with epoxy and fill that cylinder!

Adrian Weber says:

Hahaha that’s the best way to do it 😀

Ben Dover says:

Hi Adrian 🙂

What do you think, in the aspect of security and durability, of the Abus Granit Plus 37/80 padlock?? Would that compare to the Squire padlock?

redace397 says:

Hi Adrian, great review! Could you please advise me, I have the exact Abloy PL362 with raised shoulders as in your video. Will 2 links (both end links) of the series III 16mm chain fit inside my padlock shackle?

Adrian Weber says:

Hey mate, the Anti Pinch Pin is specifically designed to fit with the Squire SS65CS padlock and no other padlock. So the answer is sadly no. The opening on the Abloy PL362 is too wide. Sorry mate! But the Squire is a good deal and you COULD improve it’s core if you are into locks. I am producing all the videos on the Pragmasis chain at the moment after that I will go into discussion on the Squire padlocks and if you can upgrade them or not. I have some idead but no idea if they will work.

Dean Brooks says:

Hi Adrian, 

If you had a motor cycle worth 30-35K AUD, what Anti Thief combination would use use? Money not being issue.

Eg. Chain, Anchor, lock.

Adrian Weber says:

No there is not way to cut this padlock with bolt cutters. The Sold Secure team tried it even with the hydraulic version. The shackle is 12.6mm + the 9mm protection on each side adding up to 30mm thickness in total. There is no way of cutting this. And you can net get to the shackle when the padlock is attached to the chain!

Adrian Weber says:

The Almax and Pragmasis chains are both very good and both on the same level. I believe the company owners know each other but I am not sure on that. Both very good and which ever you choose you gone be on the good side! Cheers mate!

hello Adrian, I am looking for the best chain and padlock for a motorcycle, but I hear people complaining a lot about Almax customer service and difficulty to get the products when you live outside UK. Please tell me what alternative products would you recommend as chains and as padlocks? Perhaps Abloy 362 and some other chain? I trust your advice. Thanks

tinshlong says:

I am considering using a kryptonite u lock 18mm with either of these chains. Would anyone know if this would fit/work?

Mange 2 says:

Ive seen these locks on ebay really cheap. I wondered how they can sell a £200 lock for £50. Some people say that its the going rate for them on ebay. However, I have looked closely at the photos and if you look on the abloy website, the writing and numbers on the locks seem to be quite heavily engraved into the lock. The ones on ebay seem to be barely scratched into the surface, suggesting they may not be genuine Abloy locks. Can anyone confirm this observation?

great vid,thnx

Will make a video soon on how to keep your super bike secure and locked.

Blessed 94 says:

Hello ago I’m the paranoid type and I’m thinking about upgrading to the abloy from the squire.
All I want to ask of you is if you can tell me if the abloy 362 chain is compatible with the anti pinch pin?

diazaman says:

I just roll around on my pink girlz huffy…like a Boss! and everyone knows not too mess with it…

Adrian Weber says:

Shocking and interesting to hear at the same time! What sort of bike lock do you use? Will you change for an Almax security solution now?

Patryk737 says:

At the moment I’ve got just quite thick chain with some simple lock (about 25 euro for chain and 15 euro for lock) but I am sure that’s not enough. One hit with hammer would break a lock. Now I am saving up for Almax solution.

Hayley1993UK says:

im going to buy this chain within the next few weeks. hopefully i can upload a review or something soon. lets keep our bikes safe guys <3 Xx

FoodOnCrack says:

Afraid of Picards? Especially when he says engage while drinking tea, earl gray, hot.

Adrian Weber says:

Sounds like a cool plan James, have you heard about the Pragmasis chains yet? I am working on their videos atm. Both the Almax and the Pragmasis Protector chains are superior in quality!

ImpactWench says:

I’m not sure I understand what you mean when you say that the shackle of the Squire is covered by the chain when locked. From what I can see the link can just be turned to the side and the un-shrouded section of the shackle will be exposed for cutting.
If what you say is true, however, one might do even better with a Diskus 20/70, in which most of the shackle is shrouded, and a 16mm chain would fill it up on the inside perfectly.

MentaLMinD says:

Which padlock is harder to lockPick, the Squire SS65CS or the Abus 37/80?

Adrian Weber says:

What do you mean?

Jackcc5 says:

Whats the point an angle grinder will cut it off.
