I just bought the wrong padlock for my north shore rack - looking on their website I need a 1/4" shackle. What are you all using for this?

We had the barrel lock system before, but the keys were stolen from the car that was left unlocked overnight. Not sure what they are going to do with those keys - maybe I should leave the old lock out for them on the street. At least the pin was not locked onto the rack at the time.

Anyway appreciate any help and where to pick one up. Rona was pretty picked over in the padlock section today.

I got mine at the UHaul place across CND Tire in NV. Been on the rack for 8 years and comes off with no problem.
