After buying the excellent THULE 9708 4 bike hang on rack, I thought as I planned a trip to the UK, I better secure the rack on the back of my car, so bought this THULE lock.
Well talk about a disappointment.
The lock is a plastic cylinder that fits over the securing bolt on the bike rack to 'stop' thieves from applying a spanner to undo the racks securing bolt. It has a key that turns a small metal catch to stop the cylinder being slid off.
The fact that this so called 'lock' can be broken off with no great force using the spanner supplied for the rack is ridiculous.
It would take the prospective thief longer to get over his laughing, than it would to smash this 'lock' off.
The lock cylinder needs to be metal to be of any use.
Do NOT buy under any circumstances, you would be better off putting the money towards an insurance policy than wasting it on this rubbish product.
Shame on you THULE. This spoils your reputation.
