Poor - did not lock!

Posted20 October 2015
No, I do not recommend this product.
Cons: Heavy, Poor quality
Had to return it within two weeks - it did not actually lock. You could pull it open with little force. In fact it nearly killed me by uncoiling (due to not locking) while cycling along and nearly going under/through the wheels.
Also it's very heavy and the bracket is poor. It's very hard to remove the lock from the bracket and it doesn't look like the bracket screws will last very long.

Strong lock giving feeling of good security

Posted16 June 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, looks secure
Cons: Heavy
Easy to use and long enough to secure both wheels to cycle stands. Feels very secure but that makes for a heavy product. Not tried the bracket yet but seems the weak link - could be reasonably quickly removed from the bike.

Very strong but heavy and cumbersome.

Posted27 October 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, secure
Cons: Heavy, Expensive, difficult to lock
I bought this lock because it has the rating my insurer demanded. It is a heavy hexagonal cable with substantial lock. Certainly very strong.
Disadvantage is that it is hard to use it. It's heavy and stiff to thread through the frame and wheels. The shrouded lock swivels and this can make it difficult to insert the key - but the key has to be in the lock to lock it. Coiled up and fitted in the clip the cable is too big to fit on the frame of my hybrid. This is the price you pay for security.
