Finding the best hasp for a gate can often be difficult if you’re unsure of what’s out there. The best hasp for a gate should be one that is going to provide you with maximum durability and protection as well as having the flexibility to be attached to various sized gates.  It’s true – a standard chain and padlock combination will help to keep a gate locked. However, when you’re wanting to protect more valuable items, then a hasp should be considered.

At Heidelberg Locksmiths, we use and recommend the Abus Hasp.  In our opinion, it ticks all the boxes.  Not only is it incredibly strong against hacksaws, but also it’s extremely flexible. Its flexibility is great for fitting all gate types.

Our top recommendation – The Abus Hasp


The Abus Hasp has a curved design around the edges.  This special type of design makes it very hard for someone with a saw to get through it. The curved design mixed with the German steel gives this hasp an extra level of reinforcement.  Even though the Abus Hasp has a lot of strength to it, another thing is its ability to fit almost any gate.   Furthermore, the Abus Hasp has an Eterna™ coating.  This specialised coating will provide the hasp with protection against the harshest of weather conditions.

Finding the best hasp for a gate – why the Abus Hasp?

The Abus Hasp leaves out the need to unravel and play around with a chain.  Although you’ll still need a high-quality padlock, it’ll make locking and unlocking your gate a much simpler process.  The hasp works by securing it to two points on the gate that join together.  After doing so, simply add the padlock and that’s it!

Another great feature that the Abus Hasp has is the way that it partially conceals the padlock shackle. With the padlock shackle semi-concealed, it’ll make it even harder for someone to break the padlock.
