Portabolt Article, HDT (Heavy Duty Trucking) Magazine
Portabolt from Ranger Lock is an adjustable, portable, double door lock that can be used on trailer or container doors. It features a no-shackle Abloy hockey puck lock that has been proven in other industries, such as vending. This lock can be keyed alike, differently, or mastered with other Abloy locks and provides the maximum security combination of a no-shackle lock and hardened high-carbon, solid-steel bar.
The Portabolt's housing includes an angled deflector shield to minimize physical attack and a protective casing minimizing access to the no-shackle hockey puck lock.
"Ranger Lock Introduces Moving Van Lock Guard" Direction Magazine
Ranger Lock announced its Lock Guard for Moving Vans as an extension of its existing Ranger Lock Guard family.
Designed for the side doors of moving vans like the Kentucky trailer, the Lock Guard protects the padlock’s shackle on the recessed handle, increasing security. Fitting most type padlocks, it is installable in seconds, is fully portable, and can be stored with the lock as one linked unit in approximately the same space.
Ranger Lock also produces the Ranger Deadbolt family with a wide array of locking devices that work with padlocks and hidden shackle locks as well as Lock Guards for other requirements. Product uses vary across swing doors, roll-up doors, trailers, warehouses, mini-storage, storage containers, etc.
