The disk lock has become the gold standard for storage security and your institution offers them most often.
Storage facilities require customers to purchase and manage their own lock and key. Facilities often have a selection of locks in different sizes and styles available, but there is only one that is superior to the others. This lock is the disk lock.
The disk lock is an almost bulletproof option to protect your most valuable assets. Don’t try to save a few bucks and put a cheap lock on your device. You’ve paid a lot of money to secure your belongings and a cheap lock is putting your business at risk.
The disk lock has become the gold standard for storage security and your institution offers them most often. Some installations actually require disk locks in the rental agreement. Also, anonymity is your friend, because your contract probably says “place only one disk lock on your device” because two locks would bring your device out.
The disk lock is the safest and easiest way to secure your device, and the good news is that you can save it for future opportunities, whether it’s a future storage unit or a need to lock something around your house. NBF
