    NO KEY REPLACEMENT IN THE UL

    That's true. They don't send replacement keys to the UK. Well you might think, I'll send it to my family in Florida and they'll send it to me! No. Because its not registered at their address - they can't do that. Now of course when you purchase it tells you key registration is for USA customers only. So my advice is give them a wide berth. That's right. Great product but useless if you can't get a spare key.

    Perfect item

    After my daughter had her lovely bike pinched and I lent her my old MTB to take to university, I wanted something properly secure, to ensure I saw my bike again. Does the job. The lock on its holder just fits in the triangle of the frame but rattles a bit, so I have added a couple of bits of double sided velcro to ensure the lock is secure in transit. Works a treat. This is a HEAVY lock BTW! Great price and service from Tredz.

    Appalling build quality

    Appalling build quality, not what i expected at all, weird and poorly fitted tin caps on ends of lock barrel, strange & loose metal wires holding yellow plastic cover on shackel . Shackel is quite thick and heavy but lock barrel seems light weight considering. Extremely poor quality of led key ,batteries and switch in led key dont work properly and are not well engineered. Very disappointed. I will never order another OnGuard product again.

    Great

    It's cheaper compared to other locks with the same rating and it seems really qualitative. Of course it's heavy, but it's impossible to achieve that level of security any other way. If only the shackle was 40-50mm longer...

    Very solid lock

    Bought two of these to secure bikes in my new shed. They are very solid and therefore pretty heavy. It would add to your workout if you carried it in your bag. I've not tried attaching it to my frame. Very good price and usual speedy service from Tredz.

    Great Lock

    I bought this lock to secure my front wheel to my bike frame which is does very well. I have a lock and chain as well which i use to lock the rear wheel and frame to a post etc. The lock is not light but looks like it will give anyone who might think of steeling my bike a message go elsewhere. I will be purchasing a second one for my wife's bike now that i have seen 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

    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.
