PHOENIX (Aug. 20, 2019) — U-Haul is introducing a new 80mm WordLock® Discus Lock for customers to secure U-Haul truck cargo doors, storage units, garages, gates, fences, trailers, sheds and any number of other entry points that require protection.
The easy-to-remember letter combination is resettable with 10,000 word choices, and the shielded design is resistant to bolt cutters.
U-Haul is the first retailer to offer the lock, which gives customers a larger mouth for wider applications, like thick steel latches and garage doors.
“Moving can be stressful, so we’re giving our customers one less thing to worry about with this product,” stated Sam Cocchi, U-Haul Retail Sales program manager. “The 80mm WordLock Discus Lock is versatile. It can fit around all three pieces of a U-Haul truck hasp, providing the peace of mind our customers desire. This product is just another example of Moving Made Easier® by U-Haul.”
U-Haul has declared the lock an ideal choice for use on all of its trucks. Made with rust-resistant stainless steel and equipped with a deadbolt locking mechanism, WordLock’s latest creation is available for $14.95 online and at U-Haul-owned and -operated stores.
“With 10,000 possible combinations that can be reset on the fly, this lock is great for business storage rooms,” Cocchi added. “When multiple users are accessing a storage room, it’s very easy to pass along the word and change the letter combinations when access needs to be revoked.”
