    Very Secure Lock

    Using discount, bought this lock for great price. It is very secure with an Abus 14 out of 15 security rating. I have bought this to replace an old Kryptonite Evolution (Solid Gold & same size) D-Lock. Very pleased that the Abus is 400gms lighter.

    Hefty but solid lock

    I bought this to use at home because I have to leave my bike in an unsecured car port. My husband fixed some bolts to the wall so I could put the cable through. This lock is gold standard, so I'm guessing this is probably among the most secure locks available. It is big and heavy, it does come with a bracket to secure it to your bike, but would add quite a bit of weight and it is bulky. Having said that, I bought a cable to use with the lock which I put through the rear wheel and frame. The locking mechanism is secure but I found it rather fiddly to use. It comes with two keys, a security card for registering it, etc. Well made I reckon this should last me for years and I hope will keep my bike safe and secure and deter any potential thieves!

    Quality and robust product

    Locking mechanism has a really good, solid positive engagement and despite being quite heavy feels like it will last the test of time. Very well made and attractive too.

    Quality German product

    Not the cheapest but well worth the investment - it survived an attempt to break it! Tredz remains best value place to buy Abus.

    Sturdy lock

    I bought this plus a cable after having a much inferior lock was cut through and my bike stolen. This is certainly a robust product and only time will tell if it defeats the thieves!

    Solid and well made

    For its weight its solid and well made. Good lock mechanism. The 300mm will manage back wheel and frame. Elaborate frame fix but Couldn't get it to fit my bike without loosing the water bottle holder and too bulky to fit behind.

    Great dependable lock

    Very solid lock. I bought the 300mm version and it is more than large enough for the most awkward of locking situations. I can feel reassured that my bike is well secured in the bike shed at work with this lock.

    D-Lock Guide

     

    Overview

    For use in medium to high crime areas

    A D-Lock (also known as a U-Lock) is the most practical bike lock you can get for peace of mind when you’re at the shops or in work all day.

    D-Locks are ideal for bike security as they offer strong protection against a range of attacks. While some of these locks will be heavy, they are much more portable than a chain lock and far tougher than a cable lock. D Locks are very stiff meaning they’re easy to fit around your bike and a stationary object.

    Most D-Locks come in two parts. You have the shackle made of steel or hardened steel with a diameter up to 18mm. The crossbar contains the locking mechanism and you slide the shackle into the bar and turn the key to fix it in place.


    Size

    D-Lock Size

    A standard D-Lock will easily fit around your bike and normal bike racks. If you have a particularly wide framed bike you can get wider and longer shackles. Alternatively, there is also a range of mini D-Locks are that specifically for use just with a standard bike rack. You won’t be able to fit your bike around a lamppost with a mini.

    For security, it is best to get a D-Lock which will fit your frame and stationary object without leaving too much internal space. A common way for thieves to defeat your D-Lock is by slipping another object like a crowbar inside the shackle and leveraging with enough force to break it open.

    Shackle Diameter

    When choosing a D-Lock, the thicker the shackle diameter is, the more secure it is (especially against bolt cutters). However, the trade off is weight. Some very sturdy D-Locks can weigh over 2.5kg. One tip is to lock your bike high on the frame and off the ground to make it harder to use bolt cutters.

    Small diameter d-lock

    13mm & Under:

    Under 13mm shackles can be cropped with most standard bolt cutters while some determination.

    The quality of steel used in the shackle can increase the time this takes. Ideal for quick visits to the shops.

    Medium diameter d-lock

    13mm – 16mm:

    At this diameter it becomes much harder to crop a D-Lock with a standard bolt cutter.

    Good for locking to the bike rack outside the office.

    Large diameter d-lock

    16mm & Over:

    With a shackle this burly only the largest bolt cutter jaws with sustained effort with crack through.

    It’s unlikely a thief will have the time or tools to cut through. Great for locking your bike overnight.


    Locking Mechanism

    Deadbolt Locking

    Most D-Locks will now use a deadbolt locking mechanism. A deadbolt cannot be moved to the open position except by rotating the key.

    Look for a double deadbolt for enhanced security. This means there is a locking bolt on both sides of the crossbar. Locking the shackle on both entry points greatly improves twisting and cutting resistance. Even if a thief cuts through one end of the shackle, it’ll be much harder to twist the shackle out of position.

    Some brands even offer quadruple deadbolt systems which lock the shackle to the crossbar in four places for maximum resistance.

    Construction

    Lock Material

    Almost all D Lock shackles and locking mechanisms are built out of steel. However, some locks will be constructed from hardened steel. By tempering steel if becomes harder and less brittle making it much tougher to cut through.

    Some locks use tempered steel for improved strength

    Sold Secure Rated

    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, UK independent rating system for bike locks.

    Sold Secure Bronze

    Coverage: Up to £500

    Lock illustration showing the 2nd highest security rating of Silver

    Sold Secure Silver

    Coverage: Up to £1,000

    Lock illustration showing the highest security rating of Gold

    Sold Secure Gold

    Coverage: Over £1,000

    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.

    These values vary between insurance providers so check the terms and conditions of your provider.


    Mounts

    If you commute to work or use your bike daily, then having a mount to fix your lock to your bike frame is a great way to improve portability. Many brands will include easy to use frame mounts with their D-Locks but check the product description first.


    Frame Protection

    D-Locks with vinyl covers, moulded end caps and rubber coatings all ensure that your bike frame is safe from scratches and damage to your paintwork.
