British Security

291 (1)It is not often that that our Twitter and Facebook following do not come up trumps in helping us find British made products quickly. However, when we put a call our for a UK made padlock this had our 6000+ community stumped.

I am a little paranoid about my 6 month old British built Triumph Explorer motorcycle going walkies. While we do not live in a high crime area and it is kept in a safe location with a disk lock it does not stop those nagging concerns. So, I decided to take take preventative action.

Almax make heavy duty security chains ( and I was made aware of these guys some months ago, but a chain is useless without some means of securing it. After some independent research and a few phone calls I came up trumps. Banham make a number of their heavy duty locks here in the UK and they are rather helpfully stamped “MADE IN BRITAIN”.

However, it would seem that there is still a pretty healthy number of lock makers still out there including: Reece, B&G and Squire.

The Almax chain and the Banham P2005 padlock, in combination, are likely to be a fantastic deterrent to even the most determined thief but at a total cost close to £200 it is not a cheap solution.

  1. £200 might not be cheap for decent quality locks, but it’s a lot cheaper than having to replace an expensive motorcycle! A thief will have an extremely hard time trying to get through a Banham lock … good choice!
