Title: Scuba tank lock assembly

Abstract: A scuba tank locking device includes a cable lock and a locking plate having a first aperture sized to receive the cable lock and a second aperture having an elongated slot extending therefrom. A key-operated tumbler lock is tangentially adjacent the second aperture and includes a coaxial bolt member operatively associated therewith positionable between locked and unlocked positions, with the bolt member extending into the second aperture in the locked position. An attachment cable formed from flexible steel cable is permanently attached to the steel plate with a distal end being sized for insertion through the second aperture and subsequent placement within the slot. The attachment cable includes a coaxially attached locking lug sized for insertion into the second aperture and having a width greater than the width of the slot. The bolt member prevents the withdrawal of the locking lug when in the locked position.
