when was Motorcycle Security first thought about

During 1996 and 1997 a couple of people I occasionally saw at a pub in Perth had their motorcycles stolen and during the same years my factory was broken into twice.

When their motorcycles were left un-attended either at their house or when out they both placed mild steel chain through the front wheel then locked it with a padlock.

My factory gates used the same, mild steel chain through both gates then locked with a padlock.

One motorcycle the mild steel chain was cut, the other the padlocks shackle was cut.

My first factory break-in the padlocks shackle was cut, the second time the mild steel chain was cut. Both times my factory was broken into money and power tools were stolen.

After my first factory break-in I bought more expensive padlock and used the same chain. After the second break-in I bought thicker 6mm diameter mild steel chain.

A couple of months later when I arrived at my factory I got out of my car, walked to the gates and saw someone had tried to break-in. He or she had cut half of the mild steel chain link.

I un-locked the gate and my factory door, went inside I saw the answering machine flashing. I listened to the message it was from the security guard saying he chased off two people attempting to break-in.

After this third time I thought there had to be a more secure method to stop thieves cutting chain or the padlocks shackle. I did some research, to my surprise there was no other security device that can replace a padlock and chain.

that was until April 2003

I met a guy named Keith at a trade show on an inventors stand in Perth, WA. I do not want to repeat the same history here (also known by other names) you can read about it by clicking the following link.

why is a chain and padlock easily broken

If you want to buy a chain and padlock you probably go to Bunnings, Mitre 10 or the local hardware shop. When inside you ask a sales person where they are he or she says the chain is in aisle 2 and the padlocks in aisle 3.

chain

You go to aisle 2 seeing all the different types of chain, 99% of people buy 4mm or 6mm diameter mild steel chain, why its cheap. You pick up the supplied 12 inch bolt cutter to cut off the length of chain you need.

padlock

The next is aisle 3 there you see many padlocks as per the chain 99% of people buy a cheap padlock.

No matter what you want to secure with a chain and padlock eg. motorcycle, single or double gates 99% of thieves use one of three methods to break either.

methods to break a chain and padlock

leverage attackthis is a leverage attack, a quick and quite method to break a padlock of any size
hammer attackthis is a hammer attack, one of three methods to break a padlock of any size
bolt cutter attackbolt cutter used to cut a link in mild steel chain or cut the padlocks shackle

You have purchased a length of mild steel chain and padlock but did you make the right decision.

think about what you have done

You cut the length of chain needed with the supplied 12 inch bolt cutter.

do you get it

You cut the mild steel chain in the hardware shop what is stopping a thief buying a 12 inch bolt cutter for about five dollars then cutting the chain you just purchased breaking into your property or stealing your caravan, camper trailer, boat and trailer or any other item secured with a chain and padlock.

thieves prefer to cut chain

We do not like to repeat ourselves but most people do not get it.

For about five dollars a thief can buy a 12 inch bolt cutter then use it to break into or steel anything secured with 4mm or 6mm mild steel chain.

If the thief does not take a bolt cutter with them they will use a leverage or hammer attach, as seen above, to break mild steel chain or padlock.

how to stop thieves cutting chain

Its simple do not buy mild steel chain.

you must buy high tensile chain

You maybe thinking, what is the difference between mild steel and high tensile chain, known by other names eg. bolt cutter proof chain.

I am not going to give you a science lesson, to keep it very simple all types of steel start by smelting iron ore in a blast furnace then adding a varing small percentage of carbon depending on the final product, eg. mild steel, stainless steel, high tensile or other types of steel.

when designing the steel shroud

Our initial target market was industrial properties to replace mild steel chain and the padlock used to secure a single gate to a post or double gates together.

after testing

The perfect length of 10mm diameter bolt cutter proof chain required to achieve the above is 500mm.

not long after our first sale in March 2004

We were asked countless times

10mm diameter bolt cutter proof chain be purchased

warranty

Before we sold the first Motorcycle Security in March 2004 we, the manufacturer, spent a lot of time thinking about the question

how long should we
guarantee each Motorcycle Security

why

Based on our research padlocks and similar products are imported, they have no manufacturer warranty.

If you buy an imported padlock and similar product the only warranty you get is the six month minimum Australian government mandatory warranty for all products imported into Australia unless otherwise stated.

back to our question

We knew for a fact each Motorcycle Security will last a life time eg. 25, 50 or 75 years no doubt longer due to the superior material used to manufacture them and no moving parts but we also knew we had to be realistic.

We believe a 10 year guarantee gives purchasers 100% confidence they are buying a high quality security product from a 100% Australian owned business.

we are proud to say

since our first sale in March 2004

until today May 18, 2022
