Cheap and cheerful lock

PostedJune 10, 2014
No, I do not recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Lightweight, Looks great
Cons: flimsy
This is a very cheap lock in price.
While it is a quality product, I don't imagine that it would offer much resistance to a potential bike thief with a common set of pliers.
The cable has a very slim gauge!
However, it's handy as a quick deterrent.

A bit too thin

PostedFebruary 21, 2014
No, I do not recommend this product.
Pros: Lightweight
Cons: limited use
Was looking for a cheap bike lock, but this is really just for attaching accessories to your bike. To be fair, that's all it claims to do, but even then it seems very thin even for that..

Basic chain lock

PostedApril 12, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Lightweight
I'm sure there are better locks out there that would make your bike far more secure, but in terms of just chaining it to a lampost whilst you nip into the paper shop to prevent a completely opportunistic thief half-inching it, this is fine. The four digit tumbler is convenient, and easy to operate whilst affording that little bit more security - enough to deter a chancer or stall them long enough for you to raise a hue and cry. The chain/lock wraps nicely around your seat post when not in use.

This lock was better than I expected for the price. It is very strong and it is a good length. Very happy with it.

Cheap but useful

PostedDecember 21, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value
Only useful for very short term and basic protection, but for £5.99 it's a good deal.

Inexpensive but does the job.

PostedJuly 25, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Lightweight
Cons: can't change the combination lock number.
I wanted a lightweight, inexpensive combination lock to fit in my bag so I could lock my bike up for short periods, such as going in a shop etc whilst out on my bike and this lock does that fine. I wouldn't recommend using this this lock as a primary lock for longer periods as it isn't robust enough. And it would be a better lock if you could change the combination number to one which you could remember easier.
