overview of leverage, hammer and bolt cutter attack

Following is an overview about the three methods thieves use to break a padlock or cut a link in mild steel chain.

1: leverage attack

A leverage attack involves twisting the chain to make it taut then place a spanner around the padlock body or put a steel bar or screwdriver through the padlocks shackle or a link in the chain then pull down and turn.

one of the following will happen

note

The average padlock only requires a 10 inch spanner to break it.

For the small percentage of people who have bought a more robust padlock all that is required to break them is a longer spanner or place a hollow steel tube on the end of the spanner to gain additional leverage as seen in the following picture.

3: bolt cutter attack

thieves will always break
the weakest part

There was no point designing a unique security device in 2003 to stop the three methods listed above, opportunistic, smash and grab and semi professional thieves use to break a padlock or cut a link in mild steel chain.

Then include the same thin 4mm or 6mm diameter mild steel chain most people buy when they need a chain and padlock to secure an item.

why do they

mild steel chain is cheap to buy
but cheap means very low security

4mm or 6mm diameter mild steel chain is easy and quick to cut with a cheap 12 inch bolt cutter anyone can buy at Bunnings, Mitre 10 or their local hardware shop for about five dollars.
