ABUS padlock triumphs over another very determined burglar!

* Abus-robust-padlock.jpgWe know that padlock security can't always stop a burglar, but we do know that good security buys time, and the better the system the more time it will buy.

That is exactly what happened to at the Granary Barn, Worcestershire. At around 11pm, Mr Harris was alerted by noises at his recently converted Granary Barn. The noise came from his ABUS 83WPIB/53 padlock withstanding some serious leverage from a stillson type wrench, buying Mr Harris enough time to head off the burglars and assess the damage to his barn. The result was a slightly twisted but still secure padlock, a bent hasp and staple but no entry or theft from the barn - the ABUS padlock had successfully thwarted another determined burglary.
