Defeat Bolt Cutters

“A determined thief with an angle grinder and enough time can cut through nearly any lock,” says Master Lock's Justin Matuszek. “But more often, the thief has a bolt cutter and is trying to work fast.” He says the thicker a lock's shackle and the less it's exposed, the more secure the lock is from bolt cutters.

Both are available at amazon.com. Plus, here's how to choose the best security chain.
