Master Lock Introduces 6 New Colors for 6121 ProSeries Weather Tough Padlock to Improve Security Coding Efforts


Milwaukee, Wis. — Feb. 26, 2015 – To better help customers with security coding efforts for different work site locations, departments, and employee identification, Master Lock has introduced six new vividly brilliant colors for its durable 6121 ProSeries Weather Tough padlock.

Offering outstanding security and the same essential features as the original 6121 padlock, this ProSeries line extension includes more customized options by adding Red, Green, Yellow, Blue, Orange, and White to the product roster. The new colors are available for base models and modifications including the 6121LF, 6121LJ, 6121LN, 6121KA, 6121KAB, 6121KABLJ, 6121 KALF, and 6121 KALJ.

“The new colors for the 6121 ProSeries Weather Tough padlock provide an opportunity to manage security at a new level at many facilities,” said Sherri Hanson, senior product manager. “They are a great choice to distinguish identification for specific security levels and access. Color is universally understood, so it serves as a great alternative to using text or labeling where different language situations may be present. This padlock also includes all of the superior custom keying features and options of the original 6121, including Edge Key Control.”

Built to handle demanding situations and the toughest environmental conditions, the 6121 ProSeries Weather Tough padlock is manufactured with a 5/16-inch diameter hardened boron alloy shackle for superior cut resistance. 

A dual ball locking mechanism resists pulling and prying; the rekeyable five-pin cylinder with spool pins also makes it nearly impossible to pick, making it ideal for outdoor commercial and industrial applications. 

The Weather Tough padlock cover is designed to protect locks from the elements such as water, ice, dirt, and grime, so it can be used in manufacturing environments, storefront and business gates, and even on truck doors.

Edge Key Control recently added new upgrades. The single key control system limits access to key blanks; only authorized Master Lock providers can duplicate the keys with approval. Edge users now have the ability to affordably retrofit existing facility locksets with options for future expansion and system updates. 

The Master Lock Co. is recognized around the world as the authentic, enduring name in padlocks and security products. It offers a broad range of innovative security and safety solutions for consumer, commercial, and industrial end-users.

The company is an operating unit of Fortune Brands Home & Security, Inc., a leading consumer brands company. Headquartered in Deerfield, Ill., Fortune Brands Home & Security Inc. is included in the S&P MidCap 400 Index.
