Useless

Apart from being VERY poorly constructed (think child's first lock) and incredibly flimsy, this thing simply doesn't work! Okay, only a fool would buy this lock hoping it would keep their bike safe unattended for long periods, but even if being used as as a mere visual deterrent, it ought to function at the very least. It seemed fine for the first week but then a few days after I changed the code, it wouldn't unlock! It then took a pair of regular pliars and very little effort to snap the cable. It's now in a bin somewhere near Clent- best place for it.

Needed a thin cable lock, Does the job perfectly

Although a mountain biker, I actually bought this for my motorbike as a deterrent for someone to steal my bike helmet when not with the bike. I needed a lock that had a thin cable (rather than one with a bulky plastic outer coating), so it would fit through the seat. Does the job!

A good small bike lock

I Bought this as a visual deterrent when stopping for lunch on our club rides. I can’t understand the other reviews unless I have an updated lock. I found it easy to reset the four digit code and easy to use, yes it is a light construction but that is what I was looking for so it would comfortably fit in my pocket. On my first outing It fell out of my pocket and hit the road quite hard and it was not damaged or cracked Regarding security I was watching a MET Police TV documentary and they were showing how bike thieves cut through security locks with a cable cutter, so having a thicker lock would not stop the determined thief. This lock will do what its intended. Other club members are quite impressed that they are also ordering one. I would give it 100%

poor quality plastic

Bought this as a visual deterrent when stopping for coffee breaks on rides. Very flimsy plastic construction which looks like something Poundland would sell. Would not recommend

Bike Locks Guide

What type of bike lock do I need?

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.

How heavy is a bike lock?

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

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

D-locks tend to be 1kg up to 2.5kgs and are more compact for daily use than a chunky chain lock.

What is Sold Secure?

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.
