OLD REVIEW: Heavy, flashy, somewhat simple key. Still like it.
As others mentioned, the speaker hole can be covered with hand or gum - there's very little sound coming out of it then.
I actually like it and this I use this defect myself, I like to have a chance to mute it before my ears pop.
Looking at the key profile, I am not entirely convinced it can withstand a lock picker. I am treating this lock more like "repellent".
No issues with sensitivity in my case.
I can slowly rotate it in my hand when it's armed without triggering the alarm.
But shacking it just a bit makes two beeps, 1 second pause and here goes the alarm.
I got this to use in conjunction with a loop chain, but be warned, the chain I ordered online weighs a ton! (You might want to consider an Abus granit disc lock instead)

This is a big guy. For me it is a bit too big. I can not send trough on my brake disk on my Honda PCX, so I just attach it to the wheel.
14mm steel plus some rubber insulation on the shackle. Check if you have enough space for this.
This way I can turn the whell around if I arrange the lock on the wheel each turn, but I don't think that the kids can ride away. Well, they may tape it in a "safe" position, but it is time and that is what we try to get.
It can secure chains too as a padlock, so it may be used like that in the future.
The keys are some funny "smile" shape creatures. Keep the spares in a safe place, I don't think that you can make a copy easily.
My lock is not so sensitive, what I like.
The 100dB sounds good but only on paper. I was worry that it will blow my head off, but actually on a busy street it is bearly audible.
It beeps 2 short as a notice and after alarms for 10s with all the 100dB.
It would be nice if after the notice, no more movements, the lock would go back to sleep and not making any alarm.
If you do not want to use the alarm, you just put the shackle back on the other way around and it is disabled.
It is big and yellow, and hopefully looks too complicated to chop it off and they maybe skip your bike.
For me it is a bit like a toy or something. I guess it is storng but the yellow plastic cover just remind me to cheap plastic coated bike accessories.
I will update this review.
Feels very strong and should do the job protecting the bike. But couple issues.
First problem is that the initial beep to activate is louder then the alarm.
And it’s supposed to give a warning been and then if touched again the alarm goes off, but my one seems to give warning beep then alarm straight away. Not sure if fault.
Can see your bike. This will also be fitted at night so will prevent anyone from
1 wheeling the bike away
2 trying to take my bike due to the loud alarm more than likely weakening my whole road.
Very easy to use and is very recommendable.
Only issue is reminder cable had very small holes to look around the lock which would be annoying if you use it. Would just buy a bigger one for £2.
- This thing is weighty and seems like it would be hard to cut through.
- Big and yellow so can be a theft deterrent (also hard to drive off without seeing it if you forget to take it off
- Alarm is way too sensitive and will go off without anything happening. At first I thought it was maybe the wind or something, but then I sat and watched it and it will just go off for no reason.
- The alarm will also turn off after about 10 seconds so that too is not very effective.
- No remote way of turning the alarm on or off so you have to sometimes endure the ear piercing alarm when you fumble around trying to get the key in the lock
Buy a disk lock and then an alarm separately, don't bother with this as I pretty much always lock it with the alarm off...
My bike was stolen and I never heard the alarm go off and it certainly didn’t stop the thief
no Allen key to unscrew battery compartment
A little quite and a thief could easily quiten down the alarm by covering the speaker vent.
How do you obtain a dealers stamp for the extended warranty as there is no dealer to stamp it
However does look robust as a lock.
How do you obtain
Can a lock be to big, maybe it can and this is it. It's a propper lump witch is good and bad. The alarm side of things is a bit of a pain and not very loud. It's handy it's not to loud as you can set it off easy wile locking and unlocking, or removing the cover ect.
The alarm is not that loud but is shrill and quickly irritating which is good. It is sensitive and any messing with the bike sets it off .
Also no need for unsightly yellow cables to remind you you have a disk lock on the alarm does that job too.
the size also meanes you can add another chain or bar to secure your bike to something else. I have also used it on my pushbike in Cambridge..
A great product if the plastic felt a little more robust that could only add to the appeal.. well worth the money.
