Master Armedforces says:

Im looking for a eye-bolt to create an anchor point on my concrete floor so I can then pair it up w/a lock & chain. They come in a few different materials, what should I be looking for strength-wise? Is forged better than cast, is stainless harder etc…? Thanks !

Ringo Star says:

Wayne, I’ve begun a collection of padlocks, I have an assortment of master, American and abus, what other rekeyable padlocks can i get for under $30 thanks

TBoanProds says:

Do you know if an Abloy Protec2 can be put into a Squire SS65CE body? I think this closed shackle padlock config, if possible, with an Almax 19mm might be the best bike lock solution.

Andres Razo says:

So much great information, it was incredibly helpful. Thanks for posting this.

Bob Long says:

what I have learned the hard way, no one pics a lock (drug dealers) they cut the lock, they twist the lock until something gives, they shoot it, they MELT IT, yes, had one melted, and of course they cut the chain, I saw your Pegleg 12 chain, love that stuff! going to go buy me some now!

warr malaski says:

all the locks on the table are junk most can be bypassed in under 30seconds. or shimmed form the top.  look up  a commando lock .

Kyle Corey says:

all of these locks can be picked by an average picker

Cm says:

Whats your opinion on Squire old English padlocks?

Healthy Aging says:

What are your thoughts about a combination lock? I understand they’re much harder to pick but easy to bust open with a sledge hammer.

We just purchased an Abus 190CS/60 C 60mm Body Solid Steel Combination Padlock for our storage unit. (It cost around $50.) It uses a hardened steel jacket with a hardened special alloy shackle. Looks like there’s not enough room for cutters, and the combination is recessed in the bottom of the lock which might help it withstand a sledgehammer…?

We have several thousand dollars worth of household goods in the locker and don’t want to skimp on protection. We’re allowed 2 locks so we’re also using one of those round keyed locks, like the one you showed. I can’t remember the manufacturer but I think it’s the one sold at the storage units because 90% of all the other lockers are using this exact same lock. These are easy to pick (as you’ve shown) so we added the Abus.

Thanks for the great video!

finlandiabeach says:

Great video!!! Thanks!!

Nathan Corliss says:

What about the shrouded Medeco for $118? Even cheaper ones from Squire and American Lock but thought this would be a good comparison to the Custom Stanley.

Heph Zibah says:

Is it important to have the highest security for padlocks on the inside of my garden gate. It seems that if someone got over the fence,into the garden, the I suppose it would take them longer to get out through the gate.

ZenTeT says:

where can I get military style locks ?

susantyrellfans says:

The Stanley 24/7 vs the Abus 20/80 vs the Abus 20/70.  Which one should I buy.  I need two for a dual door storage locker.  Thanks for this video.
