This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Just purchased one of these and thought the price seemed pretty good when looking online.It has a SOLD Gold Secure rating and the reviews appear to be good.As with all bike locks they are never going to be unbreakable but at least it acts as a good deterrent.This is the lowest it has been on Amazon although it’s been this price for the last 3 weeks.Next best I can find is Dyas for £49.99.

The only lock you should be using for bike’s (If you live in a big city/dodgy area at least) is a D lock in all honesty. Incredible how easy these chain locks can be broken with a little bit of force.

D Locks really aren't much better
Is the chain gold rated as well as the lock? I have found these with gold lock and not even bronze cables. But if the chain is rated sold secure gold it will be fine for insurance.
No details on the thickness of the chain but I doubt it is thicker than bolt croppers, so probably easily cut through...

Here is the datasheet I've found: yale.co.uk/Yal…pdf
10mm which I think is the chain, so yes will easily fit into decent croppers...
Are these made by Onguard / magnum, the lock mechanism pictures in that yale listing look identical to the onguard Z-cylinder and a onguard brute...

Doesn't really matter how good it is if it's got Gold Sold Secure on it then your insurance will pay out. [so long as you have the bike listed in the first place.] No style of bike security is unbeatable all that matters is that Sold Secure Gold is a fairly good recommendation in itself but the thing can be made from cheese and who cares, you still get new-for-old replacement on house insurance.
If your bike is so precious that you really can't allow it to be stolen then you need to be spending much more than £45.

It's also amazing how easily a d-lock can be broken with a bottle jack. If you had to have one lock I'd say go for a d-lock with a thick hardened shackle. They are the best in terms of protection vs weight.

Don't write off chains entirely though, they're more flexible so can be more versatile and they can even come with thicker links than a d-lock's shackle, up to 22mm links.

I'm looking to pick up a chain with 16mm thick links as my bike is an awkward shape to lock up. I can't fit a full size d lock through my rear wheel, rear suspension and front triangle all in one go but a chain would have no problems.
