Sometimes you need to store things in a back shed, a locker, or a cabinet and you do not want to find them stolen when you need them. A practical solution may be to use a padlock to secure your possessions.
The following article lists some padlocks that the author from Security Gem has found to be best at fitting certain situations.
He suggests that you should be sure to match what you spend on a lock with what it will protect. You do not need an expensive lock for relatively inexpensive tools. You can save money on a cheaper lock and still have good protection. Of course the reverse is also true, a cheap lock on a shed that keeps your high end, and more expensive, tools will not protect. If a thief can easily cut the lock, then you are out your tools and a lot of money.
Technology has improved to make modern locks more difficult for the thief and easier to use for those who should have access. Bluetooth capability, protection of shackles, and newer materials make modern padlocks much better and still affordable.
