Combination Locks for the Carwash Industry

Is anyone out there as frustrate with combination locks as me. I have been using the ABUS 1801B/50 - which are supposed to be water proof marine grade of locks. They look and work good for a while then they either stop opening or stop locking. No amount of any kind of lubrication seem so work. Does anyone have a better lock brand or solution?? Under desert skies, Floyd

What are you locking? Any combination padlock like that can be picked fairly easily using info available on the internet. I wouldn't use them for anything but the vac cleanout doors.

I don't know where you got this information that the lock is waterproof/marine grade. The info I've found list it as a low security indoor lock for gym lockers, file cabinets, etc.

i use the abus key lock for clean out doors, dumpsters, and other low security uses. They last for years and years with just an occasional lubrication. I've been buying them from KR with the same key number for probably 20 years so it keeps things simple.
