The CS in the name of the product stands for “closed shackle.” This type of shackle is especially useful for businesses. Some thieves like to use bolt cutters and saws to cut through the shackle. The answer from ABUS is to expose as little of the lock’s shackle as possible.
The 83CS/55 has a shackle guard as well. This feature restricts access, so the shackle cannot be attacked easily. The body and the shackle are both made of hardened steel.
This lock is part of the re-keyable lock series, which is one of the best-selling products from ABUS. It makes the rekeying process as easy as you have never experienced before.
At the same time, it allows you to save as much stock space as possible. It accomplishes this benefit by getting rid of unnecessary variants, which are required for key-retaining locks or for those with different shackle lengths. It is precise and made of high-quality materials, making it more durable than your traditional locks.
Fast rekeying is one of the most sought after features of this lock. It does not need you to use any special tools to change the locks. Additionally, it minimises the need to switch locks when you lose your key. You can modify it so your existing key can fit in perfectly.
The ABUS 83CS/55 allows shackle changing and function convertibility from key retaining to non-key retaining.
