  • ABUS Brooklyn Chain A.P.

    When you live in a city like Shanghai (or any large city for that matter), you know the importance of having a quality lock. Thieves thrive on opportunity; so don’t give them much of one in the first place! German lock maker ABUS just released their Brooklyn Chain – a burly-as-hell chain that’s nearly impossible to cut. If you’re one of the many people asking me for lock recommendations, then be sure to check out the ABUS Brooklyn Chain.

  • Initial Reaction: ABUS Granit X Plus Mini 54 U Lock

    I came home from work today to find a nice little package from ABUS, containing their newly-released Granit X Plus 54 u lock. This mini u lock is their top-of-the-line in terms of security and portability. They took the locking system and wide profile of the largest Granit X Plus locks and shrunk the shackle size, which is great if you’re in an urban area and need a lock that won’t take up a ton of space in your bag. My initial reaction to this lock is that it’s beefy, and in the best of ways. Not only does it have a double bolted shackle, but it’s also equipped with an automatic keyhole cover that helps keep moving parts safe from the elements. I’m so excited to try out this lock! I’ll report back once I’ve given it some proper use and let you know what I think.
