Yes, the body on the Master Lock appears to be made from fairly soft metal, one would need something where the body is more robust.

A good alternative would be something like the stainless steel Abloy locks from Finland, but these are very expensive, and I am not sure how available they are in South Africa.

Apparently the guys from Trailer Cuff are evaluating something similar, but at a lower cost.
