Blok Combination Coil Lock £24.99

Another combination lock similar to the Masterlock above. It’s a similar length and somewhat heavier with a neat mount (superior to the Masterlock’s) and looks good due to its claimed 15mm thick cable. Unfortunately that’s where the good points end; the small bolt croppers went through this lock like it was made of string.

We were so surprised at how easy it was to cut, we experimented with a Leatherman pocket knife (with a serrated-edge blade) and this made quick work of the cable too - under 30 seconds quick! Investigating the actual cable it's easy to see why - despite claiming 15mm thickness, the actual metal was just 7mm, thinner than the Masterlock which only claimed 12mm.
