Tool theft costs you twice — you lose the value of the tool and you lose the use of the tool. What if there was a way that your tools could tell you they were being stolen? Lock the Siren Padlock on your toolbox or directly onto your tool, and it’ll alert you if somebody who doesn’t have the key starts monkeying with your stuff.
With the alarm disabled, the Siren Padlock works like a normal padlock — but when you enable the alarm, the padlock emits a 96dB, siren-like noise for ten seconds every time it’s moved or tampered with. The alarm operates on six button batteries which are enclosed within the lock so they can only be accessed when it’s open. With a shackle made of chrome-finished, hardened steel and a body of zinc-alloy steel, this lock will handle most weather.
The retailers seem to disagree with the manufacturer as to just how loud the alarm is — but whether it’s 105dB like the corporate site claims or 96-98dB like the retailers list, it’ll put out enough volume to get your attention.
If you’re sick of tools growing legs of their own, you can try out the Siren Padlock for $20.
