Locking Systems 8500w

ORLANDO, FL -- Locking Systems International reports that it has been awarded a United States patent on its Flex padlock. In total, 20 claims were awarded.

The Flex padlock allows vending operators to adjust the security level of the entire padlock by changing the lock cylinder, a system that LSI calls the "adaptable cam."

The Flex padlock features a hardened steel body and shackle; shackles are available with 1" or 2" clearance, and are user-changeable. The padlock body accommodates most standard 7/8" cam locks, including LSI's own Cobra 7 and CobraMatic 7, along with Abloy and Medeco, among other popular makes.

Locking Systems International, founded in 1994, is a manufacturer and distributor of locks and locking systems in a wide range of types and styles, including vending locks, cam locks and padlocks. It is a leading distributor and service center for Abloy and Medeco products.
