Feels strong
by Anonymous user on 08/08/2020

I got couple of these for my bike to ensure I get maximum security, I have to say that it really feels tough! Sometimes I feel like it’s a bit too much, but considering the price of my bike it’s totally worth it. I do take both with me wherever I go, yes they’re heavy, but if you buy Kriega bag you wouldn’t feel the weight honestly.

solid and secure
by Wojciech G on 25/05/2020

Very solid build. long enough to lock a frame and a wheel. A bit heavy but it is worth it. Nice cut keys – not too big in your pocket.

Excellent lock, easy to use and storable. Seems very thick & strong. Does everything it says on the box & is approved by insurers.

Decent lock!
by Alan B on 21/01/2016

NIce and robust, seems well made and secure. Not had chance to use it much as yet but it's proved really useful for locking my bike up whilst out and about. Really compact as opposed to my (work) D lock which stays attached to the bike rack at work and would be a bit cumbersome to lug around - this lock sits nicely in my pannier bag. Great price and quick delivery too.

Chain Lock Guide

 

Chain Lock Guide

Overview

For use in medium to high crime areas

Chain locks are flexible, tough and come in a range of lengths. They opening up a range of versatile locking options that you don’t get with other types of lock. With a chain lock, you’re not limited to fixing your bike to racks and lampposts, but also trees and other oddly shaped objects.

Chain locks are made of two parts, the steel links that create the chain and the lock. The lock may be integrated into the chain, a separate padlock or even a mini D-lock.

A burly chain lock can withstand a range of attacks from crowbars to powered tools. However, the trade off is weight. These are the heaviest bike locks that you can get, with some models weighing over 7kg. The heavier the chain, the stronger the links and the more protection you get.


Weight

Portable Chain Hiplok

Portable Chain:
1kg – 3kg

Lighter weight chain locks under 3kg can be wrapped around your seatpost or frame and taken with you on your morning commute. These locks are more practical for daily use, however, will not offer the same level of protection as a sturdier chain.

Thick Knog Chain Lock

Stationary Chain:
3kg – 7kg

Locks weighing over 3kg are not practical to carry around with you. They do make a great stationary storage solution for your garage or shed, where the chain can be permanently fixed in place. Match a chain lock with a ground anchor for the ultimate protection for your bike at home.


Material

Chain links are usually built out of steel. However, premium chains will be constructed from hardened steel. By tempering the steel during forming, it becomes harder and less brittle. This makes it much tougher to cut through the links without serious equipment and time.

Triple heated Boron Manganese steel is exceptionally resistant to cutting style attacks while remaining ductile.

Thick Knog Chain Lock

Link Thickness

Small diameter d-lock

12mm & Under:

Chain links under 12mm can be cut with sustained effort with standard bolt cutters if the conditions are right.

Tip: Lock your bike in an awkward position to make it harder to use bolt cutters.

Medium diameter d-lock

13mm – 15mm:

Only the heaviest duty bolt cutters will be needed for these links.

Remember, chain links need to be cut twice to break the link. This will take skill, time and effort.

Large diameter d-lock

16mm & Over:

Even the best hand operated bolt-cutters will struggle to tackle these links.

Tip: Keep your chain and lock off the floor. Freeze spray and a hammer strike can compromise the best chain locks.


Locking Mechanism

The Lock

You’ll find most chain locks either come with an integrated lock or a separate padlock (or mini D-lock). A chain is only as strong as its weakest link, so make sure the lock is tough enough for your needs.

Look for double deadbolt locking mechanisms that make it much harder to pick or drill the lock open. The thicker the shackle diameter on the padlock or D-lock, the tougher it will be to cut through.

Construction

Chain Length

Most brands offer varying chain lengths to suit your needs. Consider where you’re likely to be locking your bike.

Lengths under 1m will be useful in tight areas such as locking your bike to a rack, fence or post. 1.5m – 2m chains are useful for locking multiple frames to one spot in your garage (you won’t be carrying these length chains with you as they’re too heavy).

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 logo

Sold Secure Bronze

Coverage: Up to £500

Sold secure silver logo

Sold Secure Silver

Coverage: Up to £1,000

Sold secure gold logo

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.


Frame Protection:

Metal chain links can quickly scuff your paintwork. Look for chain locks that come with plastic or canvas sleeves to protect your frame from damage.

It’s also worth choosing a lock (whether integrated or separate) that has rubberised or bump proof shackles and crossbars to ensure your paintwork is safe.
