Harley Davidson High Security Padlock Part Number #45721-96A

The Harley Davidson High Security Padlock #45721-96A is actually a Master Lock Pro Series Padlock model #6127, but the HD padlock has a unique key cylinder that isn't available retail on the Master Lock Pro Series padlock. In the photo above you will notice the keys included with the lock are K900 keys, which are used in the W900 key cylinder. According to the Master Lock technical manual and commercial sales literature, the W900 cylinder is only available on Master Lock Contractor Grade padlocks. Why does the HD padlock use the W900 cylinder? I don't know, but whatever the reason, its still a descent padlock.

The picture above really doesn't do the padlock justice, and the description on the HD website fails to describe the details of the lock. This is a really nice and big padlock! The W900 cylinder is a 6 pin cylinder pinned for 5, and it includes security pins, so it does have pick resistance. The body of the lock is 2-5/8" wide or 67mm. The shackle diameter is 7/16" or 11mm. The shackle height is 1-3/8" or 35mm, and shackle width is 7/8" or 22mm. The padlock uses a dual ball bearing locking mechanism, so it has good resistance to prying, and the lock can't be shimmed. The shackle is a hardened boron steel alloy, so the lock has good cut resistance. I would not have a problem using this padlock with a high security chain to secure a motorcycle, and it is priced only a few dollars more than the Pro Series version.

Here is a list of features from the Master Lock website:
  • Ideal for harsh outdoor conditions - exclusive Pro Series® Weather Tough® cover protects lock from water, ice, dirt and grime
  • ProSeries® Padlocks are designed for Commercial/Industrial applications
  • 2-5/8" (67mm) heavy steel body withstands physical attack
  • 1-3/8" (35mm) tall, 7/16" (11mm) diameter hardened boron alloy shackle for maximum cut resistance
  • Dual ball locking mechanism resists pulling and pryi
  • High security, rekeyable 5-pin cylinder with spool pins is virtually impossible to pick
