The skewers fit my mountain bike perfectly and are attractive. The key works fine, and fits in my saddle bag without taking much room (unlike the the Pinhead key I lost).

I downgraded this two stars because unlike the picture showing the product, ONLY ONE KEY IS INCLUDED IN THE PACKAGE AND THERE IS NO WAY TO BUY ANOTHER KEY. Had the picture shown only one key and a replacement key could be ordered, I would have given this 5 stars. I really hate being lied to or misled by a company.

summary: These work well, read on to know how much to tighten them. I also wish more than one "wrench" was included.

I have a vertical dropout (bike axle slides in from the bottom and isn't meant to be adjusted forwards and backwards) which these skewers work well for, since they don't need to be tightened as much as a horizontal dropout does.

I hand-tightened based on the math I did to determine how much torque should be applied. The package states they should be tightened to 7 Newton meters (N m), but there's no way to properly attach a torque wrench to their proprietary wrench.

How to tighten them:
The "middle" of where your hand presses on the wrench should exert 24.8 pounds of force. you could close your eyes and pretend you're lifting a 25 lb weight.

The end of the wrench has a hole in it, if you hung a 19.1 pound weight on it (with the wrench hanging parallel to the ground) that would also be 7 newton meters.

I received the hublox skewers today, installation was very easy. I replaced my quick release skewers because tires are the most common things stolen on bicycles. They are very light also. Good solid product. Its better then buying the $40-$50 ones. Hope this helps.

They are for temporary security for your wheels. These things aren't made to be able to leave your bike out overnight in Brooklyn or something. They're for securing your wheels to your bike while unattended for a short period of time. Riding around town, stopping in a store, having lunch, etc. they will keep your wheels safe. If you want real overnight/regular security use a big lock. Seems like common sense, but looking at other reviews it apparently isn't. Very pleased - got my wife a set for her bike too.

One thing to note - the picture makes it look like you get two keys. You don't, it's just one.

These are light in weight as described. If the jerks, opportunists, and criminals want to take your wheel or bike, they will with enough preparation and effort. However, these skewers will make them think twice for a easier target.

I feel like they do the job as advertised. However the metal they are made w is somewhat weak and the key can strip if you are not careful

The product photo (as of 12/2013) shows two security wrenches but only comes with one. This isn't a deal breaker but if it had come with two, as shown, I would be giving this a 5-star review.

I've been using these for the past 6 months, aprox 200 miles, on my Cyclocross bike which see's 50/50 dirt/pavement. These skewers have been dependable and easy to remove. I've had a few flats and it only takes a couple extra seconds to wrench these off vs. a quick release. For me its worth the extra time as this bike is parked out on the streets of Seattle in not the best of neighborhoods.

pros: light, easy to install, good price
cons: only comes with one key, skewer ends are matte and not polished, difficult to torque down

while there are a lot of protective measure available, i trust hublox on all of my bikes. i most recently purchased a set for an $800 wheelset i just built up.

there's no such thing as an unbreakable lock; in my mind, the best thing you can do is increase the inconveniences a thief has to face. this is what hublox does--it adds inconvenience and turns your bike into less of a target. now, this doesn't mean you're completely protected, especially against bike thieves who really know what they're doing, but 95% of the scumbags looking to turn a quick buck at the pawn shop to feed their meth habit aren't going to be master thieves. hublox protects your wheels from the average scumbag looking to make a quick steal.

regarding the "torque down" under my list of cons, the driveside end of my campy rear hub is flat, not toothed (no idea why). even under incredibly tight torquing, the hub kept slipping in the dropouts. i ended up having to put on a quick release rear skewer through the wheel to resolve this issue. for 99% of the hubs out there, this really isn't going to be an issue.
