I like the quality of Master lock products. They often cost a little more, but security in a locking system is what I’m looking for in a lock and cable to secure my “stuff” so I’ll leave short cuts for something else. I use a Master Lock Quantum 6 foot cable with a combination lock to secure my generator to my trailer bumper. You can purchase a cable and lock that uses a key, but I like the combination concept as I don’t need to find the key. The cable is 5/16” braided steel with a vinyl coating. I’m a little embarrassed that I feel the need to lock up my generator, but I’d like to discourage and dissuade someone from helping themselves to my things. The cable is not indestructible but merely a deterrent and provides a possible thief time to rethink his/her intentions.
I also purchased a 4 foot 5/16 cable with looped ends so I could extend the reach of the lock and cable. So that makes a total of 10 feet of “high performance” cable available to me to secure my generator. If I could have found a larger cable diameter I would have done so but I was not able to find one locally. My Master Lock is sold as a bike security cable. Did I mention the cable is self coiling when it’s not in use…who in the company thought that was a sales pitch?! Hey…I like the quality of the product and I do recommend Master Lock. www.masterlocks.com
