California boy says:

thanks for the video man

Paul Edwards says:

Keep them coming please, even smaller models of locks like the 65 series Abus etc….

lifeisgood070 says:

What kind of lock would you recommend for a pelican toolcase? hole is like 8.5mm in diameter and requires 13/16″ or 1″ of shackle length

Camila Lopez says:

thank you so much for all your videos i took my best decison buying a lock for my car hauler trailer good job

Олег Пупкин says:

Чтобы снять этот замок с цепи, нужно его раскусить в ещё одном месте. Вы работу до конца не сделали. Замок не открыт. Оба конца дужки зафиксированы шариками в корпусе.

maXim0200 says:

absolutely brilliant! thank you for doing these tests.

Ralph Behrendt says:

Made in Germany ist das beste was es auf der Welt gibt,bei Autos,Werkzeugmaschinen ,selbst bei so einen simplen Vorhängeschloss keiner kann uns das Wasser reichen.

Bob Long says:

have you done a video on the Abus 37/80 padlock?

Alex says:

great review as always. many thanks

HighSpeedNoDrag says:

Just curious, what does the Tat on your left hand, below knuckle signify/mean?  FYI, I came across you website in my own personal effort to increase and or become more secure in my home/condo.There are those who do in life and those who Do Not.  Your in the Do category and then some.

Celia England says:

I love your videos. The Abus lock and Pewag chain that I use are meant to deter the average meth-head bike thief…ill equipped and in a big hurry!

atfsgeoff says:

The Squire SS80CS is larger in every dimension, weighs 4.85lbs by itself, and has a heavily shrouded 16mm shackle. It is designed to allow only one link of chain through it though, so it will only work with chains that have long end links to fit through each other.
THANK YOU for your tests of these high security, very expensive padlocks! You’re like the Consumer Reports of locks!

Alex Alex says:

Abus is shite. Maybe test abloy?

Finn Blu says:

often consider the best why to secure select contents of cargo van

alarm

window grates

other locks

a way to prevent front doors from opening even if windows are smashed

and finally

an idea addition of steel stock through bolted to portion of interior frame that allows say this lock to be connected to chain, select larger tools or expensive bikes and then through the steel stock

assume your work van was left in a remote location for two hours surrounded by thieves… with massive bolt cutters and battery powered cutter/ grinder

best set up?

would like to also be able to head out on day hikes, extended weekend camping- miles off roads/ parking lot and with at least several items locked in and to portion of van… perhaps in a fabricated smaller strong box but with heavy duty locks

alarms are often easily disabled or if 15 miles away by foot …useless.

Charles Le says:

can you do a test of the Litelok bike lock? Their internal video shows it resisting bolt cutters, saws and even prolong attack with angle grinder. I purchased one but wonder if it’s really that strong, but I don’t trust the company video. https://youtu.be/KB2ghne7sOU

Bob Long says:

just sent a pic to your email with two pics of how I prevent the jaws from getting a good hold on to the shackle, let me know what you think please

TurboB18C says:

Any updates on the larger prototype Pewag chain?

Mike Miller says:

Love the videos Wayne! Thanks for providing much needed detail and info. I have a custom mountain bike coming my way soon, and the thought of losing it is terrifying. Question – would you prefer this lock to to your custom ASSA built lock?

Older&Wiser says:

Would shackle guards on this lock allow for two 1/2″ chain links?

Olivier Cauffopé says:

they do shrouded version the Abus Rock 83CS/80

J Coelho says:

Well, nice channel Wayne! I just bought a new motorcycle and I am looking for a way to prevent someone from stealing it, I am thinking of buying this ABUS 83/80 + a Pewag chain 1/2 inch (who uses inches? mm ftw xD) with grade 120. What do you think of it? Is it completely anti bolt cutters? I live in Portugal so they usually don’t steal bikes with grinders here.
Keep up the good work, new bikers and people interested in securing something have a lot to search the web for the real, and genuine tests, your channel saved me some precious time. Thanks 😉

Jackcc5 says:

they do offer shackle guard ed 83/80 cs

LockPickingLawyer says:

Nice video. FYI- apparently, they do make a CS version of this lock, though I’ve never seen it for sale in the US. http://www.nothingbutpadlocks.com/products/keyed-alike-padlocks/abus-83cs80ka-cen6

p Feeley says:

bolt cutters are not relevant any more. nearly all thefts of top end cycles and motorbikes are done with battery powered handheld grinders. this is epidemic in london now

Don'z Lockz says:

Glad to see you testing these locks to extremes but also sad and difficulty seeing you beat it up with a hammer! Yeah, super hard shackles like anything similar will eventually crack but no normal human even with the largest bolt cutters in the field will open that lock like you said.. (without a grinder). The Squire is not available in Australia so I’ll be getting the Abus and probably upgrade the core and still come out with change. They now make a CS so that’ll be in the cart soon! Thanks for doing these tests and reviews Wayne! 😉

Steel Pinnings says:

Very nice review,
I sometimes wish all lock manufacturers watch the real review videos of there products… And here is the key… make the changes in there products to make them better.

Mohammad Abboud says:

i don’t know how i ended up here, but this is oddly one of the most satisfying channels on YouTube

Dairywhip says:

Your awesome man!

Brandon Hedges says:

Hey Wayne! Love the channel man. Been watching your videos everyday before work it’s starting to become part of the daily routine haha. I have a Honda Ruckus scooter that I am trying to protect as best as I can and so far you have inspired me to order some Pewag. I’m just having trouble deciding on a pad lock. Do you know of some of the better padlocks that are shackle shrouded and can hold the 7/16 / 12mm pewag chain? Keep it up man this channel is great

M C says:

the key way is trash. abloy is the true king

J.L Hoffy says:

I would be interested in your thoughts of the CEN 6 Squire SS65CS padlock vs the 83/80. Are you familiar with the Squire?

Luxish Aj says:

THANK YOU for posting another great video, showing what we all need to know about which locks are the best for security. Thanks Wayne

Thomas Roux says:

How about abloy 362?

FullOilBarrel says:

I have one of these

Christopher Lawler says:

The angle grinder attack is scary. However, there isn’t any security devices that are commercially available to adequately resist this sort of an attack…

Another scary attack method is the use of a plasma torch or a thermal lance. Both are equally as effective and destructive.

surg23 says:

Why don’t they just use the same grade steel as the Pewag chain for the lock shackle ?

INDX iLaC says:

I hate this because u know no matter what your motorbike can be stolen in a couple mins with the tools that come out now people should need proof of what job your using it for

Jeff Moss says:

another nice one Wayne!

Christopher Lawler says:

That ABUS 83/80 Padlock retails for about $120.00. From what the price book states, other keying options or adapters for high security cylinders such as Medeco, ASSA or Schlage Primus is also available for use with this padlock… in addition to a longer shackle diameter to accommodate larger chain (such as 14mm). The Abus 83/80 padlock sports a 5/8″ diameter shackle. Whereas American & Master Lock only offers a maximum shackle diameter of 7/16″ on their largest of padlocks.

Ted Park says:

Hi Wayne,
There’s actually a larger, handy dandy window access to the pins if you turn the key counter clockwise after pushing the rekey pin in. It doesn’t make much of a difference, but it’s a bit easier to dump the original 0 bitting pins out that way. Also, if you want to use the original core and have 6 pins, there’s a teeny bag with a top spool, spring, and a specially cut brass square piece so you can install 6 pins easily. I really appreciate you testing this lock by the way – it gives people like me a good idea how resistant that lock is to forced entry. You make a good point about how important shrouding is to making a lock resistant to bolt cutter attacks.

Tod Wilkinson says:

How much do they cost and where do people buy them?

Bob Long says:

I got 5 of these off amazon.com (chepaer there) and I also have a fagettabout it lock (18mm) plus two peweg 3012 chains and one 14mm abus chain to secure my zero turn lawn mower, two chains are wrapped around the axel
