SECURITY IS NOT AN OPTION
Small but tough, the OnGuard Boxer 5100 lock ($39.95) features ultra-hardened steel that provides maximum protection against cutting. All parts on the 5100 rotate independently, which OnGuard says makes the 5100 nearly impossible to defeat. The lock also has the company's dual-lockdown deadbolt locking mechanism. Dust and dirt is kept at bay with a built-in dust cover, and each lock comes with a carrying pouch with belt clip, five laser-cut keys and a bright orange reminder cable.
