    Amazing lock

    Had this lock with a non New York anchor bolt that the burglars broke out of the concrete floor but they couldn't break the chain that was through three bikes! They dumped the bikes in the middle of the night behind a local church and with hacksaws / screwdrivers etc couldn't break them free so left then, we found the bikes the next day, I expect their intention must have been to come back and retrieve with a van, felt good knowing they'd find bothing! I have bought another chain and a lock and a better anchor, without a proper grinder to hand no one would be able to take your bikes when secured with this chain!!!

    Bike chain supreme

    Don't get to realise the massiveness of this until you receive it. Bought 1m long, should have gone for 1.5m. There is a knack to fastening it, but it gives a good feeling of security. Very pleased indeed.

    Great lock worth it price

    Fantastic lock. I had my shed broken into recently but my bikes weren't pinched as they were locked with this and looped through a kryptonite anchor into concrete under the shed.

    Kryptonite New York chain and padlock

    This is one hell of a chain and padlock, it would take some time to get through this, infact, I think the would be thief would just look at it and say forget it. This is definitely one for your garage or shed, but don't think about taking it with you it's just too heavy. You want the New York "gold secure D lock for that.

    The chain & padlock are the best you can get. This is my 2nd chain to secure a prized item. I wouldn't trust anything else. Well made, very substantial, very impressed.

    Ultimate security for your bike

    If you want the ultimate in locks to secure your prize bike then look no further than Kryptonite's flagship chain and padlock. Have no doubts this is a mean beast! It is very heavy and best used to secure to a high quality wall bracket. I'm a fan of Tusk's products (www.tuskstore.com). With this combination your pride and joy should be completely theft proof. This is certainly not one to tour with! Great price from Tredz and excellent service. Only drawback is that it is so heavy that when I was checking it out the chain dropped and smashed my new Cateye Strada Slim which I had just fitted to my town bike!!

    Want to steal my bike? Fahgettaboudit!!

    Beast of a combination. Does exactly what I wanted it for which was to secure my bike at home and act as a deterrent. Not good for portable use. Weighs a tonne but that's the point! Good price further discounted with voucher.

    Kryptonite New York Lock

    My gosh! I have two Abus Granite Sold Secure Gold chains which I thought were pretty tough. When the two delivery men dropped off the monster shackle I was aware of karma. I would hate to think of a bike theft in any context but I knew if it were the case the next bike lifted would not be mine.

    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.

    Close up showing the locking mechanism of the padlock

    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

    Coverage: Up to £500

    Sold Secure Silver

    Coverage: Up to £1,000

    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.
