Nice heavy lock.. Picked one up from Rutland cycle last year when they used to be £15 or £16

^ same as that really good lock, no problems/ attempts so far.

seems a good price

Every lock can be compromised...

Kryptonite STD? Bad news for Superman.

Fiddly key, but sturdy enough lock for the price.

Also picked one up from Rutland cycle around christmas time last year....in the bin already! The lock itself started to jam up and I had bent the key trying to force it open.

If there have been no attempts, how do you know there are no problems?...

For reference, these locks don't suffer from the old "biro" problem that used to plague Kryptonite locks, it's a reasonable lock for those on a budget, but it is still a cheap lock at the end of the day and won't stop anyone with a set of bolt cutters. You wouldn't want to be using it for anything worth serious money.

WoollyHat are a good seller as well incidentally, used them on eBay many times.

The cable is useless, can go through it in a minute with a small pair of snips, but as long as you lock the D-lock around something you'll be OK. A mate used similar and put the cable around a tree and used the D to hold it together, the cable got cut and they took his bike (with lock still attached to the frame I assume!).

EDIT: Should add I've used this lock for 4 years without issue, but as mentioned above I have no idea if someone has eyed it up and gone for easier prey or I've just been lucky.

How do people carry something like this on their bike without shoving it in a backpack or something? is there any way you can connect this to your frame when cycling?

I just have a thick cable type lock wrapped around my seatpost which is ideal if I want to stop anywhere and nip to the shops, but I don't think it would take much to break, would like a good D-lock but finding somewhere to put the thing is putting me off.

From my research, the d-lock is for the frame to the anchor, the cable should be for seatposts/tyres.

Ive got one that looks just like this (kryptonite) and it comes with a holder to attach to your frame, that little silver bit on the D lock is what it connects to so I assume this comes with it

They're working on their Adamantium lock range..

Never really got why they have a brand called "Kryptonite" when it's synonymous with being an achilles heel?

Not sure a weakness is a great name for something meant to be strong :P

I personally use two Almax Immobiliser IV chains with a Squire SS65CS lock

Nothing can cut through that...

Pragmasis 10mm and Squire SS65CS here... It's undefeatable, but I rarely use it, as it weighs about 6kg, and a pain to carry the chain around in a bag :(. How do you carry yours around?

Basically if a serious pro thief want it, they will have it, but for the money this and all other mentioned locks are worth their money! the squire lock/chain option is the best but costly and heavy, great if you can afford 2.

I bought one of these from Amazon directly just the other day, and it possibly works out a smidge cheaper. Amazon are selling it for £20.99 and there's 8% Quidco to be had on Sports and Outdoors which brings it to £19.59 I think.

Got this via flubit with 12% discount.

Judging by the comments driving a car would be safer lol. I have one these locks but my bike is worth only £50 even as parts. It's well looked after and I need it to get around, but I never really store it anywhere dangerous.

Is there actually a lock that is 100% safe?

If they want it,they'll get it,simples

Also there is a national bike registration scheme by which the police apply a special marking to your bicycle, in the event of theft police can return your bike against the database.

There was a stall at Viccy Park the other morning and the police applied a registration marking to my bike, they also gave me a sticker to put on my lock and the officer said once thieves see it's marked against the national database they normally move onto another bike instead.

Have some heat, if you can afford it get a gold rated Kryptonite get one!

We had some odd bit of plastic shoved down the seat tube that locks in place, was yours the same? Bit like a datatag used on motorbikes.

No this is a registration number in a special blue ink on the bottom of the tube frame, I suspect even if you try your hardest to remove the ink it will still show up under UV or something.

big deal, i can get STD's for free in croydon

I had free 1 year bike insurance inside up to £800. Remember to register asap after purchase.

Ah, I got that done a few years back. In Stafford the latest thing is datatagging, the police often do it free at certain events in town. We got it done last year at the Asda car park, they also did a free tune-up of the bike

Can anybody tell me how best to cut through a thick chain that I think is supposed to be for motorbikes? It's securing an old outdoor sign and key has been lost. Would bolt cutter do or should I be thinking angle grinder.

It's all about time, the longer the thief has to work the lock to break it, the more likely they are being caught, so risk/reward is a lot different to a cheaper bike with a lock that can be broken in 20 seconds.
As well as requiring more specialist and heavy duty tools, which are a give away if caught.

The real danger is the guy with a 6 foot bolt cropper and a van, they can defeat all but the most expensive locks (Almax/Pragmasis chains above 6mm are mostly safe, there's videos of people breaking bolt croppers trying to cut them) and be off in quick time. My aunt lost a bike with a Kyrptonite Fageddaboutit top of their range chain this way.

Also use immobilise.com to register it by the frame number (and other portable items while you're there).

Police forces (some at least) check this when they come across dodgy persons on expensive looking bikes.

Higher value insurance, but no cable with it.

Bought it in the end using flubit, £26 something, actually came from wiggle and invoice said £37! Dunno why flubit is ordering from them at a more expensive price. Got 3 small bags of haribo and a energy tablet free too!
Lock seems pretty good! What the cable used for? That seems like it could be easily snipped anyway?

Cable is used to secure the wheels and bits.
