Why Choose OML
OML's outboard engine locks have been developed for the highest level of outboard engine security. Your outboard is valuable and vulnerable and in the UK, no outboard is insured unless it is locked on with an insurance approved lock. OML outboard engine locks have been created with the input from engine manufacturers, engine dealers and security test centres throughout Europe. Read on to find out more.
What makes Outboard Motor Loc locks so effective?
Four elements go into each outboard engine lock designed and made by OML. In your lock you will find:
1) A substantial and proven seawater-safe lock mechanism
2) High grade 316 marine-grade stainless steel construction
3) Designs created after extensive research, testing and development
4) High quality, metalwork carried out by hand, by experienced British engineers
Our outboard engine locks are only ever fitted with locks manufactured by a handful of companies whose mechanisms we have researched and tested relentlessly in a seawater environment. These suppliers have developed top-rated padlock technology for their radial lock mechanisms. Each lock is drill and screwdriver attack resistant and must be created from either high nickel/chrome stainless steel or brass making it impervious to galvanic action in seawater.
Built to last
Many of our competitors sell locks made of various metal cocktails that can produce galvanic action once seawater is introduced. These mechanisms will then seize up in as little as a month in a saltwater environment. Our investigations found that many lock mechanisms in other outboard motor locks have had materials used in their padlocks which are not suitable for a marine salt water environment. Our locks are not built with padlocks or chains.
So spend that little extra and buy a properly made lock that is easy to fit and gives you peace of mind.
Our aim is to provide you with a reliable and effective motor theft deterrent that will last a lifetime!
Small Slot Lock
We make five models of insurance approved slot lock because our extensive research and development has shown the importance of having the correct size of lock for the outboard motor you have. The Small Slot Lock is designed specifically for Honda and Suzuki 2-3hp.
Atlantic Slot Lock
The Atlantic Slot Lock is our most substantial insurance approved outboard motor lock and is made in four lengths: 170mm, 195mm, 230mm and 260mm; each with a 14mm slot. A high security locking head (HSH) is supplied as is a black dust cap and a rubber liner.
Pacific Bolt Lock
The Pacific Bolt Lock is our original insurance approved lock that now uses the same high security locking head as the Volcano. The Pacific Bolt Lock represents excellent value for money as well as unparalleled security. A black plastic cover is supplied.
The Volcano Bolt Lock represents the pinnacle of OML’s insurance approved bolt lock development. It is now regarded by many in the industry as the best bolt lock on the market as it has been designed and built to resist removal by the most robust actions.
