Generally, very high quality.
Don DeLauder
Not a big deal, but for as much as it cost it should have worked and fit as it was described.
Robert W. Koffler
The bike lock cable is not long enough to lock all bikes i you have a 4-bike rack.

So I bought this lock package to protect both my bikes and my new Yakima DoubleDown rack. Unfortunately there is a HUGE design flaw with how this system works on the DoubleDown racks. Yes, you can lock the bikes to the rack and also the rack to the hitch with this product. Unfortunately, Yakima engineers didn't seem to think about securing the pivot bolt in the middle where the rack folds down. It is just as easy (if not even easier) to simply unscrew that pivot bolt and take the whole rack off as it is to take out the hitch pin. Imagine coming back to your truck to find that your bikes and rack are both gone, but the lower trailer hitch piece of the rack is still safely locked to the hitch. Seems like a very sloppy oversight to me. Go look at a demo rack in a retail store. You'll see what I mean. The pivot bolt is not protected at all, and it would take only a minute to unscrew it and be gone with the whole rack...despite both of these locks.

The lock works well to secure only the bike in the first spot. But, when the rack is folded down, the lock can fall out of the rack and drag on the ground causing the lock core to fall out onto the highway and disappear forever. I had to buy a replacement and I have resorted to wrapping the lock around the main support and then locking it in place.

The dead lock hitch works as advertised. The bike lock cable is not long enough to lock all bikes i you have a 4-bike rack. It is only good for one (maybe 2) bikes.

A chain is only as strong as its weakest link. My Yakima rack has a pivot screw that can be easily taken out with any adjustable wrench, allowing the removal of the rack and bikes. There is no available lock for this.

A major engineering flaw in my opinion.

It is true that even with the locks you can just remove the pivot bolt and walk away with the bikes and rack. My easy, cheap solution: Use some JB Weld and cover the nut and threads of the bolt. Make sure to wire brush them and clean the surface. After that a wrench won't fit on the end and the bolt is "welded" to the nut without any problems with the pivot function. The lock can't get lost, stows in tube and has the same key for both lock parts. A longer cable would make this a near perfect design.

This works really well and is easy to use. It comes with two keys, which is appropriate because I don't think any more than two riders would want to use this. The cable is just not comfortably long enough for more.

Bought this item to protect my bikes. The design has a major flow based on installation the cable hardly moves when you try to push it back into the rack.
if you install it on the left side of the pin then its just too loose. On my second day when i was not using the rack the lock dangled out of the rack and I pulled it all the way with my car only noticed that it fell hours later when it was completely damaged from drawing it on the road.
Luckily i got a partial refund but decided not to get a replacement. Will upload a photo of how the lock was damaged maybe that explains more my issue.

This lock won't safe guard your wheels, but it will keep your bike attached to your rack and slides away almost completely unseen when not in use. We still use another chain to keep our wheels safe, but I still recommend this lock for extra piece of mind. Well worth the price!

Very easy to install once you understand the non-written instructions. Sometimes hard to follow the pictures. simple to use to lockup two bikes.
