What kind of locks do storage units use?

The most common types of locks used on storage units include heavy-duty disc locks, padlocks, and cylinder locks, and may be facility-specific. When choosing a lock, look for a product with high-quality construction and theft deterrence, and make sure the lock’s shackle will fit the locking mechanism on the door of your storage unit. As a best practice, combination locks are not recommended, since their security can be more readily compromised in comparison to keyed locks They are typically not as durable and do not feature anti-theft mechanisms or design.
