i have 2 red bull machines where the locks have been picked and it damaged the actual handle that you pull to open the doors. I am trying to reach red bull corporate to get them fixed.

Do you have any ideas of how to protect the locks from being vandalized? I have seen other lock protectors on coke machines but I am not sure how to get them for the redbull machines. Any ideas?

Red Bull corporate has nothing to do with your machines, you're wasting your time by trying to get them to fix them. And despite anything you were told, warranties do not cover vandalism, that's what your insurance policy is for. You can purchase a replacement for the lock by contacting Royal Vendors. You can find 3rd party lock mechanisms at any vending parts supplier, here are a few links to get you started:

Better buy extras because it WILL happen again. Vending machines are one of tweekers favorite ways to get money.
