No. You don't.

any proof that the JCB branded lock is made by Kryptonite? (i.e. 'the exact same lock') or is it just yellow?
Kryptonite make some of the best bike locks available - I doubt that they would be:
a) able to make an equivalent quality lock that could sell for only £6
b) willing to re-brand their product and permit it to be sold at such a low price
Obviously, if it is 'the exact same lock', I'm sure we'd all be extremely grateful if you could let us know where you purchased such a bargain and we'll all rush to buy one......

i would be interested to know more about this jcb lock also.

the only one i can find is the jcb rock lock, which is 14mm thick. which means its not the same as this lock.

not slating you mickrick, im very interested in finding out were you got it from, and how u know its kryptonite. i need a lock for my bike, and have been holding out for a good deal.

btw, why is this cold. this is a good deal.

i think its because of mickricks comment being first. see this happening all the time on here. the first comment goes along way to determining whether people who know nothing about the actual item vote hot or cold. they just read the first comment and see its negative, and vote cold.

this is more expensive than my bike(20 £ second hand), I would be more afraid of losing this than the actual bike...

Didn't someone in the US pick one of these with an empty toilet roll??

They did have a vulnerability whereby certain models could be picked using a bic pen lid. However, all affected models were recalled, and the current range is not vulnerable.

From memory the 'BIC pen vulnerability' was for models released in the early 90's when barrel locks were first introduced.

Obviously you wouldn't buy this for a 20 quid bike. I usually recommend spending between 5-15% of your bike's value on a lock depending on the level of risk of it being stolen.

For a £20 bike I'd recommend a zip tie.

This is a brilliant lock, incredible price as well so voted hot!

Not sure where this JCB lock rumours started but I'm guessing whoever started it thought it was the same lock because of the colour because that's the only thing in common. Ask anyone who knows anything about bikes and they'll tell you how good this is
#14
I would just point out though that the bracket supplied is pretty useless so be prepared to carry this in your bag

Sorry I haven't gotten back quicker but I only saw 2 personal messages about this a minute ago. Sorry Deedie but I'm not "talking ****" as you succinctly put it.

I am a scooterist and bought 2 jcb locks for £6 each off a local dealer that was going out of business. Looking at it now, its not exactly the same, but its not a kick in the **** off it. Heres a picture of one of them. You can see the connector for the bike bracket clearly. I will check if the guy gas any left, but I got mine over a year ago so I can't guarantee it.

Sorry, but that's not even close. That shackle is no more than 13mm, and looking at that, I'm guessing it's only a single locking mechanism.

Getting a cheap D lock is easy, but when it comes to security products, you have to weigh up the quality of what you're buying against what you want to protect. Frankly, I'd be very dubious about trusting that.

The pics below compare it to the one it's replacing (or rather, supplementing, since I'm going to use both). As you can see, the New York has a thicker shackle (16mm instead of 13mm), and double locking for extra security

Like I care what you're "guessing". It was still £6 and I would put money on it it would still be as secure as those two.
