You may have seen an additional feature under our lock categories. Certain locks will now be available in the new Alpha Design. I’m sure you’re wondering how the Alpha Design will differentiate from Omega’s original design. The Alpha series is a vast improvement in design. It not only makes the lock easier to use but makes it stronger and ends all of Omega’s quality control, material, and longevity issues. Instead of expanding ring opening like a C shape, the new Alpha ring opens like a break drum ( ), opening two halves at the same time.
