Title: Stanchion lever lock guard

Abstract: A lock guard is provided which is particularly well suited to protect a padlock employed to secure a stanchion lever securing one or more doors of a cargo container, trailer truck or moving van. The lock guard includes an interior locking tab with a vertical opening through which a hinged leg of a padlock shackle extends when the unhinged leg of the shackle is passed through an opening in a component of the stanchion door and the shackle is closed by abutting it against an abutment on the underside of the roof of the guard. The lock guard, which provides a protective housing or shield for the shackle of the padlock when the padlock is in its installed locking position, is particularly compact thereby minimizing access of cutting tools to the padlock shackle.
