(77) ACE Model 5202833 Maximum Security Padlock

My vises are made by Panavise, a U.S. Company.  The one with the wide jaws is the model 350.  The smaller one is the model 301. Both have the 312 Base mount – www.panavise.com



  1. I was very surprised that all driver and key pins were security pins!! With the "ACE" logo on the lock, it looks to me like it was made by the American Lock company for Ace Hardware. I have opened quite a few original American Locks that did not have that many security pins. That would be a major pain in the ass to pick. A "GOOD" quality lock indeed!!

  2. I use this very model of lock for work. Downside is it doesn't stand up to very much grit before it doesn't want to open. A good soaking in water does get a lot of it out but you still have rust to deal with and that requires disassembly and cleaning

  3. Believe me, this IS a nasty tempered little beeeach – no room for error or she drops 2-3 pins at once. I suspected it was a drain hole as well but the hole doesn't go all the way through. It is a dead hole, only about 1/8" deep and not threaded. Weird.
