    Heavy duty lock - reassuring
    by Anonymous user on 29/09/2020

    Great lock to use with confidence &leave bike whilst at work but sadly my bike frame is too small to fit the supplied quick release frame attachment which is a nuisance! Not the lock's fault though!

    Does the job but a little heavy
    by Anonymous user on 28/09/2020

    I bought 2 of these for the kids bikes at school. I really liked the fact they came with 5 keys each and a cable. They are pretty solid but on the heavy side. First morning I got called back to the school because neither daughter nor HM could lock the lock. It took me 5 mins to get the key out myself but it has been fine since. She now has an Abus at school. I have a selection of U locks, all SS Gold and by choice I would probably go for Kryptonite or Abus but these do the job at the right price point.

    Better than my bike!
    by Anonymous user on 24/09/2020

    A really GOOD lock for less than £30 is unheard of, except this one. I am trying to get back into cycling by refurbing a bike my neighbors' were sending to the tip, but it still seemed silly to leave it unlocked on short trips out, because I would struggle to get home again. As a 165cm female, riding a boys cross bar bike, I found the D lock only just squeezes into the space after fitting the frame holder, owners of small framed bikes need to be aware of this, and consider carrying the lock in a panier instead. The cable will get less usage but good to have it for when I get a bike that has more desirable wheels and costs more than the lock. Comparatively, a cable only lock with a flimsy key was available at Halfords around same price mark, this is a great bargain for good quality. Have already recommended to a friend for locking their bikes to a camper van rack.

    Solid Lock
    by Anonymous user on 24/09/2020

    The lock looks very strong and with the cable gives you many options on how to lock your bike. There are 5 keys which is very handy. Many locks only come with 2 which In my opinion is not enough. The lock is quite heavy but I can live with that for the chunky security.

    Excellent service from Tredz. Lock despatched very quickly and delivery quite quick as well. Lock seems to work well but no-one has tried to steal our tandem yet, so far as I know!

    Nice lock
    by Anonymous user on 16/09/2020

    Lock seems very good. The cable it comes with not so good. I would prefer something thicker. I really like that it comes with 5 keys.

    Pitbull Bike lock
    by Anonymous user on 15/09/2020

    The longer D lock is idea when using on the chunky crossbar of my power assist bike. Combined with the cable I feel confident leaving my cycle unattended in the town centre.

    D-Lock Guide

     

    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.
