    A great little lock if used for its intended purpose, October 25, 2008

    I have one of these I carry in my seatbag on long rides. It’s just the thing to prevent a crime of opportunity — I use it to secure my bike to a fixed object when I need to run into a store or the restroom for a few minutes.

    It is NOT a good lock if you are going to leave your bike in a less than secure area for an extended period of time. I’m pretty sure it would yield to some casual attention from a bolt cutters in just a second or two.

    I saw a recent recommendation that a similar item would make a good children’s lock. I guess that’s true if you don’t really care whether your kid’s bike gets stolen. My advice? Get your kid a U-lock AND a cable to secure the wheels and teach them about the real world. Kryptonite’s combination U-lock and cable have worked pretty well for my offspring.

    I would give this item 5 stars except for one thing — the combination is set at the factory and can’t be reset. OnGuard makes a similar item which I prefer. It is bulkier and heavier, but with theirs you can change the combination.

    My fault in making assumptions. If it was not written, do not assume it has the feature. This combo lock is ‘self-coiling’ which I did not want. I assumed that I could change the combination to what I want and not a predetermined factory setting. I was wrong again. I am sure that the product is good, compact, light weight, and very useful for temporary securing your property for very short period of time but not for long periods or overnight.
