Pinnacle Alarm Padlocks
#1

I came across these on a Caravanners forum :- 

 

https://www.ebay.com...872.m2749.l2649

 

Once you arm and lock it, if you move it, it goes off at 110db - OK so the padlock is gunna be cr@p for 10 bucks but whoever wants to steal your gear is gunna have to cut or bash it off, all the while with a 110DB alarm shrieking if they haven't bought the gear to disable it -

 

for 10 bucks I've bought half a dozen - have them on my camper trailer, mower, whipper, side gates - cheap deterrent and this guy had a bit of trouble picking them:-

but in another video he shows how easy it is to smash them open:-

but, if you hang them off something with "give" like a throttle cable there's nothing to bash against and it ain't that simple

 

so for 10 bucks I'm using them - I hide them out of plain sight so they're going to go off first when they move the gear - then he has to decide whether to go get the hammer and come back or get out of there -

I’m getting one and “locking” a worn out hedger in the ute overnight.
Cars don’t really get broken into here but the doors and utes get “tested” pretty often

These were a thing in the motorbike circle for awhile, i dont know if they have changed the desighn but you used to be able to take the batteries out and then cut the lock.

The shackle needs to be out to get to the battery compartment - but I'm sure there's a few ways of getting around the design - my thinking is, if you site it such that it's going to go off first, then they've got to decide whether to hang around and try to break it with the siren going off or just go to the next house - I leave my gear on the ute chained and padlocked with waterproof covers over the whipper and mower - the lock is not visible inside the cover so they're going to set it off at some stage trying to remove the gear - for 10 bucks it's just another layer of security.

Also on security I got a shock watching this:-

seems like average chains and cables aren't up to it - I'm getting a couple of their recommended D locks for the whipper and mower.
