Video Transcript for Master Lock Cable Locks - Utility Lock - 78DPF Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at Part Number 78DPF, this is the Masterlock ten millimeter braided steel cable. The braided, galvanized steel cable is a great feature to have, it's going to provide strength, but still allow you the flexibility that you need. It's going to be stronger when compared to twisted cables, and it's going to do a good job when it comes to resisting rust and corrosion. The cable itself is going to be covered with a black vinyl coating, that's going to prevent scratching of any products that you have that it's making contact with. It's going to feature the convenient double loop system, so once you have the cable ran through or around your application, you bring those together and then you just place a padlock through there and it's going to securely lock the two looped ends together. It's got the convenient double loops, it's going to include the rust resistant sleeves and scratch guards. This is going to be perfect for use with padlocks for auto, farm and home security needs.

It's also going to work well with the truck bed U-lock system. The cable itself is going to measure ten millimeter which is going to be three-eighths of an inch. It's going to give us a total length of six feet, and Masterlock is going to cover it with a limited lifetime warranty. Real quick I just want to go over the measurement here of the opening that we have. Both loops are going to be identical, that's going to give us an opening of about two and a half inches, and then measuring in this direction, the opening is going to measure at the widest point, one and one-sixteenth of an inch. But again the braided steel cable is going to allow a little bit of flexibility there so you can expand that a little bit if needed.

That's going to do it for our review of Part Number 79DPF, this is the Masterlock ten millimeter braided steel six foot cable. .

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.

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!

- 78DPF

good quality and reasonable.

- 78DPF

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!

- 78DPF

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.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...
