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.

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...
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?
