Properly Securing a Pacsafe
I’m a pretty big fan of Pacsafe gear, I use their wallet, a laptop bag, and motorcycle bags. I use their laptop bag when I’m on the road because hotel safes are not secure.
Suffering cabin fever I decided to pick locks and see how quickly I could open the cheap locks we use around the house. Pretty quickly, it turns out. I picked a Pacsafe lock in maybe 30 seconds. What? Am I really that bad-ass? No. It turns out Pacsafe locks are jokes. That video is a good demo of why I like Pacsafe, but also why you really need to replace their lock.
I did some measuring and ordered an ABUS 83WP-IB/53 Submariner. Since I park my motorcycle outside in the rain, I figured getting a weatherproof lock made sense and there’s no harm using it with my hotel Pacsafe or luggage. What I would like is to get several of these keyed alike, but that’s a small investment just to have the same key for a few padlocks.« More natural gas (bad) news | Self-configuring sensors self-configure, and that’s a problem »
