Master Lock is recognized around the world as the authentic, enduring name in padlocks and security products. Since our founding in 1921, we have worked hard to earn and maintain the trust of our customers by delivering on our promise of strength and quality and by continually setting new standards for lock design, application and performance. As the largest global manufacturer and marketer of padlocks, we continue to build our founder’s passion for innovation, quality and compelling value into our expanding lines of security solutions.

Master Lock Chain Gang There is a saying that a chain is only as strong as its weakest link. When it comes to security, there is no better explanation of why it is so important to look at a security solution in its entirety. There is no point in having the toughest padlocks, but then using them with a sub-standard chain or cable. The thieves will just leave the padlocks and attack the weak chain or cable in order to gain access.

different lengths and diameters, they are also coated in plastic to prevent scratching. Each end has a ready-made loop to facilitate a padlock. Braided cable is more resistant to cutting then normal wound cable so offers increased security. The Python infinitely adjustable cable adds to this category and is ideal for securing equipment and moveable items. Also available is a vast range of combination and keyed cables.

Master Lock has a range of chains and cables to suit every requirement.

For convenience, a range of galvanised chain and padlock sets are available. The round link chain is housed in a nylon sheath and the padlock rubber coated for protection. Various colour options available. These sets are ideal for bicycles and motorcycles and situations where less security is required.

Top of the range is the Master Lock hardened square link chain, available in pre-manufactured lengths and shackle diameters. These chains are twice as tough and resistant to bolt cutters and angle grinders than standard hardened chains. They are also housed in a plastic sheath for protection against scratching.
