I brought this lock for my motorcycle - a 600cc sportbike, which are usually "eye catchers" for the honest and not-so-honest man/woman. I worked hard for my bike and I plan on keeping it. I have one "Beast" that I brought back in 2005 and a second one brought in May 2008 - and I still have my bike!
The OnGuard BeastChain (5018) is well made; the chain thickness is 12mm (½ in.) and is hardened reinforced steel. The lock itself has two steel balls inside of it (no jokes!) for stronger defense against attack, and is 5 ½ feet in length. It's anti-drill and pick-proof (according to the packaging). It also has a covering over the chain to protect your wheel, frame, etc., from damage. There is also a "Anti-Theft Protection Offer" (Power sports only) against failure up to: $1200 (US), £400 (UK), 400 (Germany). And at around $80, the price is also reasonable for what you get.
A statement I've heard from time to time is "If they want it, they'll get it", you should keep this in mind if you buy this or any lock. With the right tools and enough time, a determined, professional thief can break even THIS chain and/or lock. But that's the thing: if they have the right tools and enough time. This isn't the $10.99 lock you find at some of the low end bicycle shops. Something you could probably break with your bare hands.Read more ›
It weighs a ton. Feels about as strong and sturdy as anything you could possibly purchase. The description does it no justice. You really have to hold it to realize how huge and thick it is. If someone steals your property by going through this thing they deserve it.
-Built like a tank
-Appears to be seriously deterring to thieves. If I were a thief, I would select an easier target
-Long enough to go through both wheels and a post barely.
-Quality construction and the nylon cover feels solid.
-Lock is equally beastly and appears difficult to attack.
-Comes with FIVE keys so you have plenty of spares in a pinch.
-Unwieldy. It weighs a fricking ton. Might not be the best to commute back and forth with on your bike. Probably should just leave it wherever you lock your bike. Who's gonna steal a lock all by itself?
-Not quite as long as I would like. Another six inches or so would be perfect.
-Keys feel really cheap in comparison to everything else almost like they may break easily if torqued at all.
-Product registration is through the mail only as far as I can tell which is odd for a product sold in 2009.
I trust this lock with my over $1000 bike and don't ever lose any sleep over it. Peace of mind is something worth paying for.
The footage shows the lock being cut open using a fairly small sized portable blow torch. I did find a piece of one of the cut chain links. And guess what, the manufacturer's bike theft coverage is NULL and VOID if the lock was cut using any power tools including a blow torch. So really, the manufacturer knows about the limitations of this lock. It is super heavy and certainly cannot be cut with a bolt cutter. Apart from a hand held bolt cutter, any other power cut can ripe this chain lock in few minutes.
I would recommend a Kryptonite New York chain lock instead. It is pricier but it does cover all thefts if the lock is compromised with. Includes lock failures arising from the use of power tools.
