Gold secure wall anchor for bikes/motorbikes
on 1 May 2011
Essential if you want your insurance to pay out should some b@st*#d try and steel your bike.
Easy to install - took me about 45 minutes, you might see other people claiming quicker but perhaps they just didn't install it properly. You'll need a decent hammer-action drill. To fit the anchor bolts (four to install), you need masonry drill bits, something like a 5,7,10,12,14,16mm should do just fine. Take your time there isn't much 'fudge-factor' to get it wrong. Once this is done offer up an anchor bolt to each hole - you may need to 'round out' the holes again. Offer the bolts up again - once they go in approx. 1 inch your golden. Gently tap them in, fix the base unit and put all four bolts in hand tight. Tighten up as required. Once done use a bit of grease to 'hold' the ball bearings in place and hammer them into the hex on top of the bolts - this makes them 100% impossible to undo again - so choose the position carefully! Add the cover and all is good - your sorted.
Next thing you'll need is a good lock - Kryptonite do a 'New York faggedaboutit" Gold secure lock in 150cm length - if you surf around online you'll find one for around 85 pounds - RRP is 154 pounds - I found a cracking bike shop in Northern England - Bikesyoulike - and they did me proud.
Bottom line - if you want an absolute solid way to lock your favourite bike up and sleep soundly in the knowledge it ain't going anywhere then get this anchor!
