Where To Buy Abus Locks

Lock is non key retaining (key can be removed when lock is open) and is designed to mount on existing frame lock mounting points on the seat stay. If no mounting points are available, you can install the LH Mounting Straps (not included) on the seat stay. LH clamps installed provide mounting points for all standard frame locks.

Permanently installed frame locks are very popular with bicyclists in Europe and we are playing catch-up. Frame locks provide an elegant and practical solution. The lock is always on the bike, ready to use. Simply push down the handle until it locks into place and you are done. The bike cannot be ridden en the wheel cannot be removed. A very nice feature on this 5950 Pro Shield lock is the lock can't be closed by someone when the key is not in the lock.

Important on factory orders:- Specially factory keyed lock orders take on average 4 to 6 weeks- ABUS PLUS keyed locks can't be keyed to X-PLUS keyed locks- Pick the Special Order option above and enter the PLUS key code found on your code card.

While it might not stop a determined criminal dead in their tracks, an outdoor padlock, when used with a heavy chain to secure a bicycle or grill in your backyard or to lock down the latch on a garden shed, can be an effective, affordable way to provide additional security to your home or valuables. In some instances, the sight of a sturdy padlock can be enough to make a crook look elsewhere for easier pickings.

After investing in a significant amount of time in research and testing 10 different padlocks for durability and ease of use on a variety of different gauges of steel chain, we've determined that the top outdoor padlock you can buy right now is the Abus Titalium Aluminum Alloy (available at Amazon) .

For those times you need to lock your prized possessions away from the world, the Desired Tools 4 Digit Combination Lock gets the job done. Setting the combination was very straightforward (it even has an online tutorial!) and the numbers were the easiest to turn of all the combination locks we tested. While it's less than ideal for outdoor use, its lightweight and compact size makes it ideal for securing a gym locker.

I found 9 of the most popular padlocks and pitted them against each other to determine the best of the best. For the combination padlocks, each lock was set with a combination and opened several times to determine how easy each padlock was to unlock and lock. We also tried opening the locks while they were locked by pulling on them. Next, these tests were applied to a bike lock and a chain to see how they fared in action.

Next, we had some fun with a few destructive tests. Locks were chucked from the second-floor fire escape of our building to see how easily they would break or if they would open on impact. We also checked a while later to see if they still worked. The locks were then submerged in water for 24 hours to see if weathering would damage them.

Finally, they were placed in a freezer for 24 hours and I then attempted to open each one, to simulate how they would fare in cold weather. Taking bolt cutters to them was just about the only test we didn't put these padlocks through.

When you're shopping for a reliable padlock, look for locks made from weather-resistant materials such as brass, laminated steel, or aluminum. You might not plan on using your lock outside, but it's is nice to have the option to do so, down the road. You may also want to consider investing in a lock with a shrouded shackle: a covered shackle makes it more difficult and, in some cases, impossible for a crook to use bolter cutters to circumvent a padlock's security.

It owes its relative lightness to a 13 mm thick shackle, which is cast in a patented shape from a very strong steel. This makes it as strong as much thicker shackles on much heavier bike locks.In fact, the Granit X Plus 540 is the lightest, high security, standard sized u-lock available at the moment.It's even the lightest Sold Secure Diamond rated lock, which is a new category reserved for the very strongest bike locks.Don't get me wrong: it's not lightweight (it weighs about the same as 3.5 cans of Coke). No high security bike locks are. But it's much lighter than the competition!

Sold Secure test and rate more bike locks than anyone else. They use standardized tools, and methods that are informed by what real thieves are using in the street. This includes both brute force and picking techniques.

Sold Secure are not the only independent organisation that tests and rates bike locks. In Holland, ART provide the same service. They rate locks from 1 to 5 (with 5 being the strongest), according to how well they endure attack.

Good u-locks provide a nice balance between price, practicality and security. They're generally cheaper, lighter and a little bit easier to use than chain locks, while still providing a high level of protection.

The two u-locks I recommend at the top of this page are standard size. This means they're big enough to fit around a whole load of objects and are therefore suitable for almost everyone, no matter what type of bike they ride and where they lock it!

Folding locks are made up of a series of metal plates linked together by rivets. They're fold down into a tight package for carrying and then unfold out to make a flexible shape that fastens around your bike.

Just like u-locks, folding locks are best suited to mobile security. And they address two of the main problems with u-locks: their rigid shape and how difficult they can be to carry around on your bike.

Because they're more flexible, you will find more places you can lock you bike up. And because they're so compact when folded up, they are much easier to transport. They also compete well with u-locks in terms of weight.

Kryptonite also produce high quality locks. Not quite to the standard of Abus, but they make up for this with exceptional customer service. This includes free key and lock replacement in certain circumstances and the best of the anti-theft protection schemes.

OnGuard have a slightly poorer reputation for both quality and customer service. However, in recent years they've significantly improved the build quality of their locks. And they beat both Abus and Kryptonite in terms of price (OnGuard locks are always the cheapest!).

Seatylock make great folding locks. Their Foldylock is one of the only folding locks with a Sold Secure Silver rating (most languish on Bronze). And their locks are actually easier to use than their rivals from Abus.

If none of my 6 recommendations are for you, then I suggest you browse one of the complete lists of Sold Secure Silver, Gold or Diamond bike locks, according to your risk level, comparing the sizes, weights and prices until you find the perfect match!

The strongest bike lock, is either the Hiplok D1000 or the soon-to-be released Litelok X3. Both of these locks provide such incredible resistance to angle grinder attacks, that in most real world scenarios, we can almost consider them angle grinder proof.However, both of these locks are very heavy and incredibly expensive. For many cyclists, a more practical option will be the Litelok X1, which, while slightly less resistant to angle grinder attack, is still far stronger than any of the other locks on the market.

In multiple places, you mention the inconvenience of carrying U-locks. To maximize accuracy that statement, you should always mention HipLok for offering a likely exception. For anybody who rides while wearing any type of bag or belt, a HipLok DX is more convenient to carry than most folding locks. The DX requires no janky frame attachments, and it is awarded the Sold Secure Gold status at 1250 grams. I would call that a winning combination of attributes for *most* bike commuters.

The static locks are used on bikes in the garage or shed. The bike goes out, but the lock stays there. The Locks That Never Get Used are the odd ones, like the Seatylock integrated seat/lock that I backed on Kickstarter, the three Tigr locks that I backed (starting to see a trend?) and the folding locks.

So you state that cable locks are bad (not effective). What about the cable locks that come with U Bolt locks (i.e. Kryptonite lock). I see some of these cables are 16mm to 18mm thick; would these be good to use or hard to cut? Or are all cable locks useless? Thank you

I would hate for your experimental results to be skewed merely because one lock cylinder began to seize before the other one did. Remember to lubricate your locks with graphite powder, available in spray cans or cheap squeeze tubes at any hardware store. Wet weather could require the use of a light machine oil, like 3-in-1, or my favorite: automatic transmission fluid (ATF). (ATF is easy to apply with a paint brush, or use it to fill empty Tri-Flow bottles)

However, I already have too many keys that I carry around and I worry about loss. I notice you do not review or cover any numbered or code locks, even though these are available for sale from all the brands you mentioned.

You forgot About axa lock. Axa Newton pro has the same level of security as abyś granit x plus 540. And it earns the same Sold security and axa ratings. -security/en-gb/products/locks/8/59502595SS/axa-newton-pro-black

The products are carefully tested to meet all standards of the contemporary world.The Granit products are constructed reasonably. The lock is made of a sturdy, stainless, gradually tempered steel, so the cylinder is protected from drilling. The applied technology makes the lock hard and solid on the outside. 041b061a72
