The 72 series are pin-tumbler padlocks made by ABUS. They are made with an anodized aluminum body and a removable core. They can be re-keyed, master keyed and grand master keyed. The locks are key-retaining. They are available in a 30mm and 40mm size and with an optional long shackle. What makes them truly stand out from the typical ABUS are the bright colors. ABUS promotes this lock in their industrial safety padlock line. The aluminum body and optional aluminum shackle make it spark proof and corrosion resistant.
