    To obtain insurance for cargo (cargo trains and cargo containers), the manufacturers and shippers need an insurance grade padlock. There are two organizations which supply insurance ratings to high grade padlocks, and the manufacturers have to build locks to surpass those ratings. It's both good and bad, since if you fail only one part of the 'standard', your lock is disqualified from a particular rating. But the bottom line is that the major European lock makers (Abloy, Anchor-Las, ABUS, Squire, etc etc) build them tough. Anchor-Las (very very expensive) and Abloy (very expensive) are the Rolls Royce and Bentley of padlocks. You have to hold one in your hand to appreciate the build-quality and beauty of these things.

    It's why nobody can pick a lock in Finland. And the locksmiths will fail too. All the locks in Finland are made by Abloy.

    it is true almost all of them are made by abloy. you can't even copy those keys because they are made with the computer stuff.

    in our last rented flat, my wife lost a key and we had to pay almost 500$ because they had to change the locks
