Padlock only as good as the combination

A padlock is only as good as what it is attached to, or the chain that links the gates...

When researching padlocks consider the following…
1 What am I protecting, and what is it worth?
2 How strong is the good frame, clasp, or chain?
3 Has your insurance specified a level of security required?
4 How much is the padlock exposed and vulnerable to tools?
5 Does it look right for the job?

Do think about the big picture, the range is extensive and overwhelming. Answer the questions above and make sure you are not caught out!
