What is a Universal PUCK Padlock?
The standard PUCK padlocks have been around for a while now, they all offer physical security of a padlock without a visible shackle. What they don’t offer is the ability for the end user to change the security of the padlock themselves. You get whatever security level the padlock was at the time you purchased it. To change the security you must purchase another padlock.
Three years ago Locking Systems International, Inc. designed, developed and manufactured the “Universal PUCK Padlock”, it was so unique that is was awarded a U.S. Patent. By incorporating a universal sleeve into the padlock we were able to allow the end user to change the security level of the padlock simply by changing the lock cylinder. We are utilizing the vending lock cylinder. Some of the vending lock cylinders that fit are the Cobra 7, CobraMatic 7, Medeco High Security Lock, Abloy Vending Cylinder, these are just a few.
So how does this Universal PUCK padlock work with different vending lock cylinders?
One option would be to combine the Universal PUCK Padlock with the CobraMatic 7, both are patented products, so you get both physical security and the security of the CobraMatic 7 patent. As an added feature the CobraMatic 7 allows the end user the change the lock code to one of eight (8) different lock codes increasing the overall padlock security.
Another option would be to add a Medeco High Security vending lock cylinder to the Universal PUCK Padlock, this will provide “Extreme” physical security and the key control of the Medeco vending Lock.
