1.0 out of 5 stars Looks the part but it 's MADE OF PLASTIC 21 Sep 2010
This lock is MADE OF SOFT PLASTIC. It looks the part but it is not robust at all, it may deter an opportunist thief from detaching your expensive Thule bike rack from your car but it's not going to stop a determined one. A small hammer and chisel could remove this lock in about 20 seconds (no joking here). The lock body should have been made from cast steel not injection moulded plastic (shame on you Thule). On the basis that something is better than nothing the this lock will do.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing. 19 May 2011
Verified Purchase
I ordered this to secure my excellent Thule Rideon cycle carrier to the car when it is unattended. This item is not up to Thule's usual high standards. It is made of soft lightweight plastic, and could easily be broken off with minimal force. It could only be considered as a deterrent to the opportunist thief. Also it is very expensive for what it is, i.e. a low quality plastic lock. Buying a decent cable lock or chain and using it to lock the carrier to the tow bar of the car would be a far more secure option.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor Value for money 25 May 2011
A rather insubstantial piece of plastic - not the solid theft deterent I was hoping for.It will stop anyone from just lifting your carrier off, but if they have the tools to undo the fitting they will probably have the tools to cut or break the lock. Unfortunately a cycle lock to the towbar fitting will not work on my car, but you might consider this as an alternative.
The lock itself fits snugly onto the clamping bolt and was easy to fit. It was fiddly to remove the first few times.

1.0 out of 5 stars As secure as an open door 6 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Does the job 30 Jun 2011
This lock does the job. easy to fit and use, but it does seem expensive for what it is. If you can get one cheap, great. Better than nothing and would be a deterrent to an oportunist theif, but i also use kayak cable which goes through the frame of the carrier and then gets locked in the boot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Protect your bike carrier 19 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase
A very simple device that is hugely effective. If you've bought a Thule bike carrier (probably with a chain to lock the bikes to it) you MUST buy this product. It will prevent an opportunist thief from unbolting the carrier, complete with bikes or empty, and making off with it. The lock is very easy to use and you would have to be very determined (and obvious) to break it off. A good deterrent. And it was delivered within a day.

3.0 out of 5 stars Does the job but is overpriced 2 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase
It is enough to deter the casual thief but it is clear Thule are making a huge margin on this very basic lock. The key mechanism is quite stiff

3.0 out of 5 stars it is for the carrier, but......... 3 May 2013
Verified Purchase
tried it the first time and it was too tight. When i pushed it onto the top of the bolt it jammed on
no way you would get it off - i had to use a screwdriver to lever it off
After spending an hour pushing it on and off the bolt it now works fine!!
Some one in Thule has got his drawing tolerances incorrect - as i am an engineer i knew what to do to fix the part.
I pity anyone trying to use this without modification

1.0 out of 5 stars I wouldn't say I hate it. But it simply doesn't work.
Lock was to tight to fit it properly. When I finally managed to push it in place I needed a lever and a hammer to get it off again. Read more
