  • A Better Puck Lock

    Here's a link to a better puck lock bracket.

    I got broken into a year ago in my driveway overnight. They only got a couple of drivers and my Makita 7 1/4 but I had been meaning to add security but didn't get around to it. I live in a pretty good neighborhood.

    I have the old style puck brackets and locks I got from Amazon. I added screens too.

    If you have a van don't wait like I did.

      Why did you go with the traditional bracket rather than the Slicklock bracket?

          That slicklock site isn't a very good website is it?...

          Anybody buying the Master lock brand puck locks at Home Depot or Lowes - stay away from the new gray-painted models with the sliding black plastic lock covers. The covers are useless and the painted lock bodies will start rusting away within a year. In comparison, the older chrome versions that I have are still in great shape 3-4 years later.

          Like that lock guard though - that's gonna save my butt in the winter...

            Got a couple of these from Reda. Haven't used them yet. Doesn't get too bad down here. You say your locks freeze up in winter ?

            Got the original Master puck locks from Amazon. One mechanically froze up in a couple of months. Fortunately it was off the truck. Master lock replaced it nqa. They say keep them lubed up with WD 40.

                Old thread, new info.

                I have used puck-locks on my van for many years. I coated the edge of the hasps with liquid rubber to help from damaging vehicles next to me, myself & others when moving close to the vehicle, but that didn't work so well since it wasn't durable. I recently got a new van & set up the puck locks. I searched the internet for solutions but found nothing. I tried applying bumpers on the edge but that didn't work or look good so I ordered Reda with hopes of figuring out a solution.

                I live in a warm climate & don't really need the weather protection Reda provides but was hoping to figure out a way to use them for bump protection somehow by either removing the magnets from one side so that when I open a door it will stay on the door portion or cutting it in half so it will stay on both portions separately.

                I cant believe no one has figured out a solution & sold it. I even contacted Master Lock & they have no suggestions. I & others have gouged our midsections front & back on them in tight parking spots & I have damaged a few vehicles next to me. Its also a hassle getting in & out always watching to see if the hasp is going to hit the adjacent vehicle.

                I had emailed Reda & included the above info & he notified me that there is a design change. The new REDA Lock Guards are completely re-designed, are 100% rubber and there are NO magnets. They are friction fit to the hasp.

                Any ideas how I might use them as bump protection?
