    Minimal Protection and Too Short

    Review by snowbank Posted on April 17, 2017

    The Dead Lock is an expensive bit of kit providing a minimal level of security against bike theft and the cable is inconveniently often too short. With the cable extended length of 25" it is only capable to secure the bike frame of the bike on the outermost position. With a partly loaded rack...read more

    A deterrent, not a guarantee

    Review by David Posted on May 20, 2015

    I bought this with my rack and I still have my bikes! I don't know if anyone has ever tried to steal one. The hitch lock is flimsy. Turn the key and you will see there very little metal that acually goes into the groove on the rack bolt itself. This could be improved by perhaps modifying the receive...read more

    Works Great

    Review by BigD Posted on May 20, 2015

    As purchased, the lock system does what it's supposed to do. It is an efficient deterrent to theft. Two things stated previously are true, if someone really wants it, they're going to get it. The other thing is that the removal of one bolt and your rack and bicycles are gone. To remedy the latter, t...read more

    Perfectly Adequate!

    Review by Binksie Posted on May 20, 2015

    This lock is great. With the combination of the hitch lock it provides theft protection from the opportunist criminal. With the right tools a thief could get around the lock. As with anything of value if the thief is out specifically to steal your stuff they will likely get it one way or another. Th...read more

    Keeps honest people honest

    Review by Salukis Posted on May 20, 2015

    Decent lock/cable to keep the bikes on the rack. Convenience is the key here, bot absolute protection. Not for long absences or very high crime areas, but it's good enough to get that post-ride drink or when paying for gas at the convenience store.

    Sure a thief could remove a bolt to ...read more

    Good deterrent

    Review by shhQuiet Posted on May 20, 2015

    As several people have mentioned, this lock set is a strong deterrent, but not foolproof. Regardless of the ability to unbolt the hitch altogether, probably the easiest way to steal bikes with these locks is to hacksaw through the arms.

    It's like the old saying about running from a be...read more
