ABUS 83CS/45 is the high-guard protected shackle variation of the brass 83/45 padlock. Same corrosion resistant solid brass-body lock body with hardened steel shackle. The smallest member of the 83 series house-key compatible padlocks.
With a 8mm (5/16") shackle, this padlock is ideal for school or work lockers, tool boxes or any place where a decent padlock is required. As with all 83 series padlocks, 83CS/45 is also re-keyable to your existing house key, eliminating an extra key to carry. Most common keys, here in the US, are Kwikset and Schlage but we also have cylinders for a wide variety of other lock brands. See the cylinder drop down menu above.Cylinder ordering options:
- Blank Key (Schlage or Kwikset): You receive a zero bitted lock and 1 key blank per lock. This is how the lock is standard delivered from Abus. You can take the lock to any locksmith to have it quickly re-keyed or if you have a pin set, it is easy to re-key yourself (*). The blank key can be cut to your existing key.
- ABUS 888 Cylinder with working key: This is our latest option. We fit
the lock with a new ABUS 888 restricted cylinder to use right out of the box.
Select this option if you have no need to re-key the lock to your existing
- Choose 888 KD (keyed different) if you need only one lock or want multiple locks each keyed individually.
- Choose 888 KA (keyed alike) if you want multiple locks all working with one and the same key.
(*) Removing and re-keying is easy if you have some experience with locks. However, someone inexperienced could easily ruin the cylinder. Choose self re-keying only if you know what you are doing. We advise to have a professional re-key your padlock.
