Video Transcript for Master Lock 10-mm Braided Steel Cable Review

Hey, everybody. Welcome to I'm Bobby. And today we're taking a look at the master lock, 10 millimeter braided steel cable lock, 15 foot long. And this is going to be a great way guys, if you're looking to start securing some of your extra cargo, maybe you got a lot of ladders like you do here today. We have some ramps, gonna be awesome for variety of different tools or needs.

It also comes in a six foot cable as well. If you're needing something just a little bit shorter, but this guys, it's gonna be great. Like I said, to go ahead and start securing some of your longer items, can be great too, to go ahead secure like a bike, motorbike, ATV, those kinds of things. Now it's not super heavy duty here, but some material of this guy is about 10 millimeters thick, as you guys can see, there's 3/8th of that galvanized steel cable on the underside, but you do have a nice vinyl outer coating here. That's going to prevent this from corroding any time soon, of course, with that base under stock for the steel is great, but that vinyl prevents you from scuffing this up and starting to grate it right away, which is great.

Now, one thing I will say, you will need to grab yourself, A, your own separate padlock, to go ahead and start securing your two hoops here today. We do have a multitude of padlocks available at Today, we're just using the master V line to give you guys a good look at what might be a good padlock to go ahead and hold onto your cable lock. Now, as you guys can see, we have this wrapped around about three times here. Definitely given you a pretty good idea about how that, how long that 15 feet can really go.

We have a ton of ladders that we're actually holding on here today, wouldn't be too hard to go ahead and fit a few more accessories or other kind of construction tools on here, like a generator maybe, I might go for something a little bit more heavy duty, if you're starting to pack a lot more expensive items on here. Now this cable will do a great job of deterring any kind of theft. However, all locks and cables are honestly just there to keep honest people honest. Now there's going to be a variety of different uses for this. Of course, I could see this being great at securing a couple of bikes together like we said, maybe making sure your UTV and that's not walking away, golf carts could be excellent for this.

One big thing too, if you have any kind of swinging barn doors, these could be excellent to go ahead, tie up on the middle, that way they can't swing open. I might suggest the six foot long cable, as you guys can see, I am about 6'1" and this guy is quite large, but that's going to be excellent like we said, if you have a lot of cargo you want to secure and make sure it doesn't walk off your trailer. Otherwise guys, I think that about does it for our look at the master lock, 10 millimeter braided steel cable. Here at I'm Bobby. Thank you for watching..

This braided steel cable is perfect for use with the Truck Bed U-Lock or with any padlock for auto, farm or home security need. Cable is double-looped and rust resistant, and it includes black vinyl coating to prevent scratching.


My hitch arrived in a timely manner and in good shape. The fit was perfect and the installation was easy. I chose the Curt hitch because it looked like from the photographs that it fit a little closer to the bumper than the Draw-Tight. It also had a 50lb higher tongue weight rating. I am pleased with the look of it. What makes no sense to me is Curt's requirement of the additional strap for bike racks. Draw-Tight does not require the strap. I wish I had read into it a little further. Additionally, the strap would have to pass over the plastic visor of the rear glass on my Rav4; this doesn't seem like a good idea. I'm not going to go through the hassle of removing and returning it since I usually only carry two bikes.


Very Thick material that seems to be pretty strong, looks very nice with the black covering. Wasn't as long as i thought it would be in my head so you might want to order a size up depending on what you are using it for, But overall great product!


A very good coated bicycle lock cable, in my case. Solves the problem of something heavy and hard to manage.


Year after purchase with everyday use, I have no fraying of the cable. The protective sleeve is still intact as well. Great product!


Feels solid. Robust. The rubber coating is a nice touch, but at the same time sticks to any smooth surface, making it sometimes difficult to pull through bicycle frames.


good quality and reasonable.


Arrived promptly all as described


Good price and perfect size for my needs.

  • Cable Lock for Securing Cargo in Bed of Truck
    The part number you are looking for was discontinued actually, it was part number 8287DAT-78DPF. If you check out the attached link though you'll see a page that has some truck bed locks that actually will let you use the key of your truck. This way you won't have to keep track of an extra key. For example, we have the Bolt part # BL7023721 which keys to Toyota trucks that use a key that looks like the picture I attached.

  • Recommendation for a Weather Resistant Cable Lock to Secure Entry Ports on a Trailer
    The Master Lock Armored Cable Gun Lock, # 107KADSPT, is designed as a gun lock and is not intended for all-weather conditions. Water and salt could cause corrosion of the steel components. Instead, I recommend separate locks and cable that are coated and/or made of corrosion resistant materials. Take a look at Master Lock Covered Solid Body Padlocks, # 141T. These locks are constructed of corrosion resistant materials so would work well outdoors. I would use these locks with Master Lock...

  • How To Secure/Lock the Jack-It 2 Bike Rack for A-Frame Trailers
    In order to lock the Jack-It 2 Bike Rack for A-Frame Trailers part # LC429756 to the hitch you just need a pad lock with 1/4" shackle like part # 141T. It will install into the hole on the end of each hitch pin which has anti-rattle. Then in order to lock the bikes to the rack you just need a cable like part # 78DPF.

  • What is the Hole Size Next to the Upright Bar On the Swagman XC2 Wheel Mount Hitch Bike Rack
    I believe you are asking about the holes in the brackets at the base of the upright on the Swagman XC2 Wheel Mount Bike Rack, item # S64650, (see picture link). The oblong holes, closest to the upright bar are 3/8 inch wide and 1/2 inch tall. The round holes farther out on each side are 3/8 inch diameter. The overall width from the outside of the front bracket to the outside of the rear bracket is 1-1/2 inches. To secure the bike rack and bikes to the chain loops on your hitch I would...

  • Locking the Swagman XTC4 Wheel Mount Bike Rack and Securing the Rack to the Vehicle
    The topmost hook on each upright can be locked with a padlock. You would need 4 small padlocks to lock each of the bikes. I have a recommendation that may be a bit easier if you do not like the idea of 4 padlocks. You could use the Roadmaster Coupler Padlock, item # RM-305, and a cable like the Master Lock 10-mm Braided Steel Cable - 6 foot, item # 78DPF. With this lock and the cable you could slide the lock through one of the sets of holes at the base of the outermost upright bar and...
