This 85cm long cable alarm lock uses a 10mm steel cable surrounded by a thick plastic sheeth making it 19mm diameter in total.  Firstly this protects the cable from rain but it also prevents it from scratching the gate or bike it is securing.

The locking barrel is a cylindrical anti-pick design and comes with two keys.

Standard Alarm Padlock 2


How The Alarm Works:
This model can be used with the alarm active or deactivated which is useful since they can be set off by strong wind or where it might be accidentally knocked.

Once activated the lock will become live within 15 seconds which gives you time to fit it to your gate, bike, or chain etc. The lock then has a fail safe movement sensor which detects movement within a 5 second period. For example 1 movement within 5 seconds will not activate the alarm. 2 or more movements within 5 seconds will then activate it. This prevents the alarm from being triggered accidentally by wind.

Setting The Lock - Alarm Active

1. Open the cable with the key
2. Attached to your bike, gate etc
3. Using the key plug the lock together until you hear the "Beep"
4. After 15 seconds the alarm will be active

Setting The Lock - Alarm Inactive

1. Open the cable with the key
2. Attached to your bike, gate etc
3. Plug the lock together half-way without the key. It will not beep
4. The cable is now locked with the alarm inactive
5. This is the best way the carry the lock in a bag or when unused.

Are The Electronics Weatherproof?
Although the lock does use weatherproof electronics we would not recommend this lock for prolonged outdoor use for weeks where it is exposed to rain. If there is a cover or roof preventing the lock from getting wet then it ok to be used outdoors. Remember to ensure the lock is orientated upwards so that the alarm holes are not exposed directly to the rain. Please see the Xena models as a fully weatherproof alternative.

Can I Change The Batteries?
Each lock comes with batteries installed, although the batteries are readily available from your local supermarket. If the lock is not being regularly activated then you should see at least 1 year battery life from the lock but it is recommended to test it every 2-3 months anyhow.

Uses & Applications:
Even without the alarm these locks are good all round security cables. They are often used locked alone to items such as tools, tool boxes, steering wheels simply to warn someone that an item has been moved or tampered with.

We have also seen them popularly locked to tents or items within tents to deter theft at festivals or camp sites.
