OnGuard, a leader in bicycle and powersports security and one of the signature brands of Todson Inc. based in Foxborough, MA, captured the coveted title of “Unbeatable” in a product showdown on National Geographic Channel’s “Showdown of the Unbeatables”.

In the hit new series, Brian Unger and Zane Lamprey, the show’s hosts, line-up the best products of American companies against one another in a battle where only one walks away victorious.


In the 20-minute “Showdown of the Unbeatables” segment, which aired on May 23, 2014, OnGuard’s toughest lock and chain, the Beast Chain and Boxer U-Lock, were put to extreme strength and endurance tests.  In a test of tensile strength, OnGuard successfully pulled a full sized, 20-ton military tank. The lock and chain then withstood a blowtorch and a shootout at 40 feet, where it took direct hits from a barrage of bullets from a 357 Magnum and AR15.


The final showdown set OnGuard lock and chain against a Link-Belt excavator, one of the most formidable of all heavy construction equipment. OnGuard was victorious against the excavator’s metal teeth and emerged as the “Showdown of the Unbeatables” champion.

“Our toughest OnGuard security lock was put through the paces – enduring bullets, a blowtorch, being pulled by a tank and the attack of an excavator – and came out on top. We’re thrilled that consumers were able to witness these challenges and see for themselves just how ‘Unbeatable’ OnGuard is,” noted Neal Todrys, president of Todson.
