Shipping container padlock FAQs
What is a lock box?

This is a steel housing for a padlock, whereby there is an ‘Eye’ welded to the first door and a ‘box’ welded to the second of the double doors. The ‘box’ closes over the ‘Eye’ and allows a padlock to be fitted inside the casing, this deters bolt croppers from gaining access to the padlock.

What sort of padlock do I use to lock my container?

We recommend a padlock that fits inside the lockbox, we supply a hardened steel padlock that is anti-bump and anti-pick and fits inside the lockbox where it cannot be chopped off with a set of bolt croppers.

How does the shipping container locking system work?

We either supply a lockbox which is fitted here in the UK or on the new units factory fitted. When the padlock is placed inside the lockbox it lock cannot be accessed by bolt croppers.
