Top 5 Locks for Upgraded Shipping Container Security
Storage Container Padlocks: Padlocks are one of the most classic options to secure a cargo shipping container and are available in a variety of styles and materials. While they offer the best security when paired with a lock box, they are still an excellent security lock option on their own.
Crossbar Locks: If you’re looking for a container security lock, but don’t want the added expense of a lock box, crossbar locks are a very popular option. They simply attached to the container door and clamp securely into place. Crossbar locks are bolt cutter and lock pick resistant.
Heavy Duty Shipping Container Locks: Not only are these locks highly tamperproof, but they’re also extremely hard to pick due to the special steel material they’re constructed of. Adding to their security, the alloy steel pins prevent the lock from being sawed off.
Lock Boxes (Cargo or Roll Door): Lock boxes are available for both cargo and roll doors on shipping containers. These act as a second layer of security, because they cover the actual locking device. Tampering or picking lock boxes is nearly impossible as it is completely enclosed.
Truck Seals: While effective, we only recommend these types of shipping containers locks if it is placed in a low risk area. Truck seals work similar to a zip tie and are mostly used to prevent the door from opening on its own.
