Pro tip: go to the manufacturer website and register your keys right away. Must do it while you have them as that’s the only way to duplicate keys. They need to have a log of the digit code on the keys.
1. The lock (shakle) is poorly designed. You cannot close the shakle without the key. This is a common lock feature that allows you to unlock your lock put your keys in your pocket and the lock up.
2. With the key it is also next to impossible to lock the shakle. You have to have the key turned just so, not all the way unlocked but just partially. And their is no spring to rotate the cylinder making it even more difficult.
3. The key is single sided so you have to look at the key before inserting.
The plastic clip to secure around your waiste is super annoying when locking up your bike because it gets all caught up on your spokes.
4. The adjustable waiste band is pointless as it is not secured well so it always comes loose. I have resorted to bringing it to the cleaners to stitch it permanently at my size.
This is all unfortunate because this is a second generation product. I have seen others mention that the 1st generation lock doesn't have these same issues. So I would stay away from the new one and get the original one (I have not tested it).
The links are round, not square, which is a missed opportunity.
The chain cover is VERY reflective.
The chain is comfortable to wear as a belt- that bit works well!
The lock has a few features you may or may not like:
1. The key is a one-sided inner groove key. This means that there is a right way and wrong way to insert it, making this a mess to fiddle with.
2. The hasp only locks with a turn of the key. You cannot simply snap the lock shut. I imagine that this might be more secure since there is no spring-loaded bolt inside that can be shimmed, but it is also a little less convenient.
Note that while there are length choices to be had with this lock. This length refers to the length of the fabric webbing used to wear this lock as a belt. Regardless of what size you order, the chain is 32" long.
32" is not long enough for a chain to run through the frame of my bike, the front wheel, and a post. YMMV, you may want to check in on this before choosing this lock. Maybe you don't need to lock your front wheel? But if that's the case, do you really need a chain lock that costs over a hundred bucks?
It's a good bike lock. If it had 4" more chain, it would be heavier, but also better.
As for the effectiveness of the reflective fabric (shown in white)? Bright as blazes, even from a distance, especially in car headlights or under a setting sun... exactly when a cyclist needs to stand out. I'm only withholding the 5th star as a warning to prospective purchasers who may be contemplating a different (non-Gold) model which affords them a bit more length -- trust me, finding a suitable hitching post that this chain can wrap around is NOT easy! -- or wish to reconsider whether their beater bike is worth investing quite this much.
If we had to do it over again, we'd back off one notch and go with one of its longer, leaner brethren.

The weight may look a little off-putting at first, especially when compared with Hiplock’s Sold Secure Silver Standard lock, but in reality once you’re wearing it the difference becomes almost negligible. Is it worth the purchase price...absolutely if it saves your pride and joy disappearing down the road without you aboard!
Top tip - take a look in the Amazon Warehouse deals and you could get this at a considerable discount. I only paid £54.
When worn on the waist, the buckle becomes loose and the lock starts slipping down over my hips. Not ideal in busy traffic.
Das Hiplok Schloss wiegt knapp 2,5 KG, was eigentlich zu schwer ist, um eine Kette für eine längere Strecke von 15-20KM zu transportieren. ABER: Sobald man das Schloss um die Hüfte schnallt, merkt man gar nichts vom Gewicht. Während der Fahrt stört das Schloss nicht und man kann weiterhin einen Rucksack tragen.
Man kann zwischen 3 verschiedenen Farben wählen, wobei ich ganz klar die reflektierende Variante bevorzugen würde. Im Dunkeln reflektiert die gesamte Ummantelung und man wird rechtzeitig von Autofahrern gesehen. Wie robust die reflektierende Schicht ist, kann ich bisher noch nicht sagen, werde ich aber in ein paar Monaten hinzufügen.
Ich bin absolut zufrieden mit dem Schloss und kann es jedem empfehlen, der sein teures Rad absichern will und davon genervt ist, ständig die schwere Kette im Rucksack zu transportieren ;). Endlich kann man ohne Rucksack in die Stadt fahren und trotzdem das Rad sicher abschließen. Es gibt allerdings eine etwas nervige Sache. Wenn man das Schloss geöffnet hat, kann man den Schlüssel nicht rausziehen, d.h. der Schlüssel muss immer stecken, was in manchen Situationen nervig ist und teilweise einschränkt.
Wie sicher das Schloss letztendlich ist, kann ich nicht beurteilen, dazu müsste ich es versuchen zu knacken ;). Aber grundsätzlich scheint es ziemlich robust zu sein, die Kette ist aus gehärtetem Stahl und 10mm dick, das Schloss bzw. der Stahlbügel 12mm dick. Damit sollte man auf jeden fall vor Bolzenschneidern jeglicher Art geschützt sein. Gegen eine mobile akkubetriebene Flex hat man wahrscheinlich nur ein paar Sekunden bzw. Minuten Schutz.... Das ist zumindest ein Erfahrungswert aus Tests von Kryptonite Fahgettaboudit und ABUS 1060 XPlus, die in einem Zeitraum von 30 - 60 Sekunden nachgeben.
