They all have GuardShack’s signature rounded design, providing superior strength and safety without any sharp corners.

The HGS cages are the best option if extra security is desired.

The all hinged HGS models have several upgrades that provide the highest level of security available.
The optional setter allows the cage to be installed directly into wet concrete. Once the concrete has hardened, this cage isn't going anywhere! The Setter also is a big-time saver for contractors as it allows the cage to be installed on the protruding screws of the sunken setter and allows the contractor to leave the jobsite before the concrete has completely dried. Using the setter additionally allows the cage to hug closely to the concrete leaving only a 3/8 inch gap between the concrete pad and cage to resist prying open.
All mounting points on the HGS models are internal and cannot be accessed unless the cage is open.
The enhanced lock shield bracket on the HGS Series was designed to protect more styles of locks from bolt cutters. The design of this cage also allows for only one lock to be used instead of two.
