While you probably don't often think about products such as padlocks, these are an important item that is needed, unfortunately, by many people in order to secure everything from a gym locker to a storage unit. Unfortunately the threat of other people stealing your possessions is a constant factor, no matter where you live. While some people who live in rural areas feel that there items are more secure, this is simply not true. It is a sad reality that no matter where you live the chance of having your items stolen is always present and therefore you will want to secure them with a quality padlock. While everyone has probably heard of or seen a Master padlock somewhere before, they probably haven't put much thought into these items. When you compare a Master padlock to similarly made models from other manufacturers it really does not stack up to the competition. For example, the Nu-Set line of heavy duty combination padlocks and keyed padlocks offer a greater degree of protection. You can read more below about what the Nu-Set keyed and combination padlocks have to offer.
The number of different styles and types of padlocks is actually quite extensive, as there are padlocks specifically designed for a number of different tasks. While the Master padlock that came in a shiny silver finish was the standard years ago, there are many new models which have a greater number of features and increased durability when compared to the Master padlock models. For example, the Nu-Set 4 digit combination padlocks allow you to choose a 4 digit code that you want and this is used to open the lock. This eliminates the need for having a bunch of keys that are easy to lose or mix up with other ones. If you need multiple units, combination padlocks are a great choice as you can have the combination be exactly the same for all of your locks.
You can view the padlock products available from Nu-Set by visiting their website at http://www.nuset.com/home-security-padlock-c-37_69.html You can not only view the specific information about each model but also view close up photos to see exactly what they look like. Along with the combination models they have an extensive line of keyed models which are available in many different sizes and styles. On of the high security padlock models is the disc padlock which features a stainless steel body and hardened shackle. This is a heavy duty padlock that offers protection from the most extreme tampering efforts. With such a small amount of shackle exposed it is incredibly difficult for anyone to break this padlock, no matter what type of tools they have. The stainless steel body also offers increased protection from corrosion due to moisture.
Another popular model made by Nu-Set is the 2 1/2” high security padlock with short shackle. This offers protection which is far superior to a Master padlock as the shackle is shorter which makes it more difficult to cut through. It also offers a shackle which is thicker than most, which also results in increased strength to stand up to any attempt made to cut through the shackle. Be sure to visit the website above for more information on this and other models of high quality padlocks available from Nu-Set.
Wherever assets and resources are present, there is a need to install security devices to protect against theft or unauthorized intrusion. Whether it is a business setting, a shared area in a given community, or a family home, or a small private locker, there are many different types of areas that need to be secured. Contrary to common jeer and stereotyping of people who invest in locks as insecure individuals, protecting resources with locks demonstrate one’s preparedness, confidence, and far-reaching vision that spend time preventing crime rather than dealing with the aftermath of crimes. It is Nu-Set Lock’s mission to offer you the most affordable and reliable locks and security devices so you can save time and energy to develop business, career, or personal goals.

For those with multiple properties or property with multiple entrances that require a padlock for security, our keyed alike padlocks make it easier for you to have the right key at the right place. Keyed alike locks are those that can be opened with the same key. All of NuSet’s keyed alike padlocks use standard 5 pin Kwikset keyway. You have the option to have these padlocks rekeyed. Our rekeyable padlocks also means that you can request to have your padlocks keyed to a specific keycode. Some property managers or homeowners like to customize their padlocks to the same keycode as their entry door locks. That saves them one less key to carry around. The same applies if you have multiple cabinets or doors that you want to lock but you don’t want the hassle of keeping up with the keys for each, then our keyed alike padlocks are the right choice for you. Use the same key to access any of the padlocks without searching for the right “match”. Again, our keyed-alike padlock or rekeyable padlock comes in different materials, shapes and sizes.

Another option that is available for those with multiple properties requiring padlocks but with more than one person who needs access is a master padlock. Master locks are usually used in groups of at least 2 locks. A master lock is one that has its own individual key but the series of locks also works with a single master key. Think of an apartment building. Each tenant has his or her own key while the landlord or property manager possesses a master key that could open all the locks. A master padlock works just the same way. If you want to have access to multiple properties but want to limit who else has access to each, a master padlock will provide you with the versatility you want.
If the bulky-sturdy hard casings of our other padlocks still don’t feel secure enough for you, our new 2-1/2” high security shrouded padlock is your ideal option.
