I've just ordered a set of these, after doing some fairly extensive research including taking my doors apart. The locks themselves. Better than the padlock option due to the tamper resistant spindles. If they do snap your lock, then this adds a good 2nd layer of security. It won't stop them forever, nothing will. But it's all about the amount of time, noise and effort it takes to get in that counts. Of course, having a couple of highly territorial GSDs the other side of the glass is my best 3rd layer of security. Lastly a word of warning, the website payment with PayPal is AWFUL. Took me 3 attempts to get it to work. If you make a mistake (upper case in email one of the several times you have to write it out for example) then just give up and start again. When you go to fill the form out to buy this, you put name and address etc. Then you click on PayPal, it copies your info over to the PP popup window, BUT once you have finished the PayPal form, it will take you to the main website page again, but in the new small PayPal window. You have to fill out all your data AGAIN and then you can complete it. Note, you will need to go back to the top and manually add your email address in AGAIN... the page takes you to step 2 for address, but go up and do that too. Dumb site, really dumb. Hopefully this info will save anyone else having a faff with it.
Was thinking exactly the same as this picture. My Dad used to use a cheap poundland style flexible bike lock around the handles of his French doors when he went on holiday etc. Seems to do the same job.
Those look goods but they don't act as a visual deterrent. They are a good supplement to the Patlock so thanks.
You win Laugh-Out-Loud prize today. Good to see someone making sure the filth humour isn't left out of serious posts (lol)
Yep they do some cheap plastic ones but if you shop around you can get metal ones
