Rust-Oleum Forges

August 9, 2005

While Master Lock’s locks are touted as being tougher than speeding bullets, rust was another story. Thanks to a new accord with Rust-Oleum, Master Lock padlocks will be able to combat thieves and rust forever.
Through a licensing deal with Rust-Oleum, Master Lock is now able to offer a lifetime guarantee of rust protection on a new line of padlocks that hit store shelves in July. The Rust-Oleum certified finish on the laminated steel body and chrome-plated steel shackle will provide the industry’s first lifetime rust-proof guarantee, according to Master Lock.
“This partnership brings together two of the best names in protection–Rust-Oleum and Master Lock,” said Michael D. Tellor, president of Rust-Oleum Corp. “With Rust-Oleum protection on Master Lock padlocks, consumers are getting the best possible for their money. We’re proud to lend our expertise to the world’s largest manufacturer of padlocks.”
