If you’re looking for a cost efficient way of ensuring your bike is safe from theft, then Kryptonite’s Keeper Standard Lock is for you, and comes with a 4 foot flex for added security.
Crafted from a 12mm hardened steel shackle to resist hand tools, the Keeper Standard also features a new hardened double deadbolt design with anti-rotation to resist against twist attacks. Also coming with a high security disc-style cylinder, the Keeper includes a click style transportation bracket to ensure it’s easy to carry from A to B, while its protective vinyl covering guarantees protection in adverse conditions.

That's oversimplifying it I think. Without an angle grinder most D-locks aren't beatable at all. Your common garden variety unprepared thief is unlikely to have one of those. It becomes more of a concern in big cities however - I wouldn't want to lock anything up worth more than £300.

If you're not prepared to lock any bike up you care about that kind of knocks on the head using bikes as a means of transport for example to work, in to the town centre etc.

Nice budget lock, but be aware it's only Sold Secure Bronze rated - some bike insurance won't accept that.

It mentions Silver on the product info?
Looks like Rutland had better update the listing then. Still better than any cable lock at least anyway.

Exactly, and there is a good reason for that

Looks like it might be the updated New-U Keeper which is now Sold Secure Silver rated.

Still worth checking if your insurance is Ok with that but it's a significant step up from Bronze.
I mainly use an Abus Silver rated U-lock because it's much lighter than their Gold rated ones. This looks pretty much identical in spec to my Abus but the advantage of Kryptonite is that if you register it when you buy it they'll send a set of replacement keys if you lose them.

Also posted recently as a deal for £20.

Lots of comments about it, and apparently it is a silver rated lock.

I think d locks are ok if they are locked up at a decent height to stop someone using bolt cutters and the ground as a leverage point.

Like this lock, particularly that its now 'reversible', but the bike bracket is the worst! Its held with a strap that loosens over a few weeks, You can tighten it but eventually the screw pulls out of the base. Definitely the B team on the design!

On my steel bike which I've had for years it never loosens, but on my aluminium one it is already loose after a few weeks riding, not ideal.
I guess it will Superman, Supergirl and Superboy from nicking your bike???

Why would you name a security product after a vulnerability? The name of these things baffles me every time I see it.

It seems to be the way the fabric tape is a friction fit against the side of the plastic case. In hot weather, the plastic softens a bit and bulges, so the tape slips. When you tighten it, the washer is just bearing on a plastic flange, which eventually pulls through.

Hmmm, I was just about to pull the trigger on a Onguard Beast but now I'm wondering whether it's overkill.....

I did see this and went ahead anyway and ordered it. Although I can appreciate it's openable, the common thief wouldn't be carry around all these tools just handy with them. As a deterrent I think this would perform better than D lock with wire.
These locks are very easy to pick, unfortunately.

Had one for two weeks, very pleased with solid steel and cable lock,would it put off would be Thieves,... IF ITS NOT NAILED DOWN...
I have 2 types of krypto d locks and they are great! I wouldn't bother with that stupid strap thing that's supposed to hold it on your bike though. It comes loose and then you have a d lock swinging side to side and whacking into your legs while you are trying to ride! Just stick it in your bag!

As for security. Thieves will usually go for the easiest target. Park your bike up near other bikes (which probably all have those stupid cable locks, or no lock!) In a visible public place and a lock like this will be more than enough to make them choose 1 of the other bikes. (Warning, my advice might not count in places like london)

Oh and get rid of all those stupid quick release things! You might get some joker who thinks its funny to just nick a wheel or your saddle instead!
All those people advising not to buy this because YouTube has a vid showing how to break it. Please advise on a better at this sort of price.
