Simple to fit and both include visible and hidden identifiers including the latest state-of-the-art ""stealth"" UV etching that won't visibly mark you cycle and gives your bike a unique finger print.

Equally importantly, Datatag works with the Police to back up the product and gives free scanning equipment and database access on a 24/7 basis as well as technical training. Owners of Datatagged cycles also benefit from reduced premiums from the major insurers.

The unique, almost invisible UV etching system, form a major part of the risk deterrent and subsequent identification. These ""stealth"" UV etches won't visibly mark your cycle paintwork!
A superior microdot identification system developed for ease of use. The Datadots can be applied to any surface, thus making it virtually impossible for the criminals to locate and remove them all.
The Datadots(R) can be used to mark all your cycle components and accessories.
Ultimate TE Label
These specially designed Datatag tamper evident labels contain a unique cycle identification number and QR code.
They warn off any potential thieves and are both attractive and impossible to remove without damage.
It's one of those things like insurance - you hope you never have to use it. Not difficult to do the main marking - reasonably good instructions - but the micro dots are a bit naff.: a blob of glue with some black bits in. The glue shows when dry and I can't tell if I've got any dots in the blob or not.

Cable Lock | Use in low crime areas
These are the lightest bike locks. They’re very flexible and easy to carry in your pocket or on your frame. Great as a visual deterrent or secondary lock to fix quick release components to your frame.
Combination Lock | Use in low crime areas
These are cable locks with a 3 or 4-digit combination rather than a key lock. They are great if you don't want to worry about forgetting keys.
Chain Lock | Use in medium/high crime areas
Chain locks are versatile. Thick chain links are great against bolt cutters. You can secure your bike to a range of bulky and unusual objects.
D-Lock | Use in medium/high crime areas
D-locks are strong and often made from hardened steel. You get 360-degree protection for your frame. Locking mechanisms can resist picking and drilling while the D shaping makes leverage style attacks difficult.
Ground anchor | Use in high crime areas
Ground anchors are immovable platforms you fix to your garage floor or wall. When used with a strong chain lock you can fix your frame to the anchor. These offer the best protection for home storage.
In general, the stronger a bike lock, the heavier it will be.
Cable / Combo locks
These range from around 400g up to 1.25kg depending on the thickness and material used in the twisted cable. These are the lightest bike locks for easy transport.
Chain locks range from around 1kg up to 7kg for the thickest and toughest chain locks. Choose a mid-range weight if you're commuting daily to blend strength and weight.
D-locks tend to be 1kg up to 2.5kgs and are more compact for daily use than a chunky chain lock.
A great way to determine the quality of a bike lock is to see if it is Sold Secure Rated. This is a third party, independent rating system.
An approved lock is graded as Gold, Silver or Bronze. The rating is chosen by how long it takes to break the lock and the tools needed to break it.
If you're planning on insuring your bike, many insurers will state you need a Sold Secure rated lock to make a successful claim.
Typically a bronze rating covers a bike up to the value of £500, silver up to £1,000 and gold for any bike worth over £1,000.
These values vary between insurance providers so check the terms and conditions of your provider.
