Cylinder exchange tanks can be attractive targets for thieves, who resell them or repurpose them. The most common way to secure propane exchange tanks has been in a cage. However, thieves can cut the lock and even the cage. To combat this, Lock America’s POLock secures individual tanks with a single tubular key registered to the business. Lock America can even key a Lock America cage lock to the same code as the cylinder lock. When propane retailers deliver a tank to a customer, they remove the lock and recycle it for their ongoing inventory. Retailers can protect their investment by locking each tank with a secure Lock America POLock, pick-resistant and keyed alike to their business, the company says. Then retailers can lock the cage with a keyed alike padlock with a boron steel alloy shackle.
