    Just received the Aldi flyer for the specials starting on Sunday 23rd January. One of them is the Padlock Alarm. Relatively cheap extra protection for bikes, solar panels, generators etc.

    Bought one of these at Lincoln or was it the NEC? Paid a tenner, got it on the wheelclamp at the mo but could be hung on a rope door to door in the cab to deter night time intruders.

    Cheap enough but you've got to laugh at "Hardened Zinc Alloy" that's like saying hard as a cold butter.

    Don't knock it though, *anything* is better than nothing.

    Had them on our stables for three years, (I don't keep horses but motorbikes lawn tractor etc) put them on following some one trying to break in they do make a noise enough to wake me.

    All the best Rick

    If your Kipor Genny's so loud, you wouldn't need one. The sudden silence would be enough to alarm you, wouldn't it ? :Doh:

    bought mine at Lincoln 2 years ago.. Still on the original battery(s? )

    Currently one of the locks is being used on the bikes at the back of the van given that PP had some stolen while here !

    hardened zinc alloy isnt a problem Brian, could be made of lead.
    they are extremely sensitive, the slightest knock will set them off.

    i have/had my genny secured with a 4mtr x 10mm steel wire and one of these locks....cable laid loose on the grass and a good tap with a screw driver on the wire, mid point, set the alarm off.

    I suffered the noise...

    One year at Shepton Mallet show we were parked in the disabled area.. We had that chap selling them only a few yards away in traders row selling them... Drove us round the bend all weekend..

    I would settle for my strike back alarm loope to me goodies.. Cut that or disconnect it the alarm goes off andtat is loud.

    Why would you need security for a Kippor Genny, no one is going to want to nick it.:Rofl1:
