5.0 out of 5 stars serious security chain, good value for money
The masterlock square chain and mini u lock is first and foremost, solid, I purchased it for 30, considering some locks themselves cost 30 is awesome, no attempts on the chain "in the field" (out and about etc) in the last 2 years, coupling this with my other U lock really relaxes my mind knowing I have the best possible setup for a very average bike, the bike...

5.0 out of 5 stars serious security chain, good value for money, 10 July 2014
This review is from: Master Lock Steel Chain Square Links Lock With Integral Mini U Bar, 900Mm (Sports)
The masterlock square chain and mini u lock is first and foremost, solid, I purchased it for 30, considering some locks themselves cost 30 is awesome, no attempts on the chain "in the field" (out and about etc) in the last 2 years, coupling this with my other U lock really relaxes my mind knowing I have the best possible setup for a very average bike, the bike still belongs to me and so i could say this chain is better than any police officer you might phone or see about your bike getting robbed. i look to make it difficult for a thief, it isn't indestructible obviously like no lock or chain in the world but it is a good compromise for price, weight and size considerations

typically there are no limitations for what you might need this for, a gate, a work ladder, motorbike, scooter, anything out in public that needs securing in your absence.

You really can't trust anyone these days and so I don't take my bike anywhere where I can't lock it to something, I always choose a bike rack somewhere even if it means a longer walk and with this lock, each and every time I have returned to my bike in confidence, it's up to the job, i wrap it round my handlebars and the weight is not too much or too light that you can't feel it nor too heavy that it slows me down riding or gives backache lifting it off the floor or anything like that

it is fairly ugly like all locks are you know? .. in an ideal world, I don't want to bother with any lock or any hassle with keys but I bought this because faith in humanity is lost when it comes to theft... like i said, it has secured my ride for a very long time and also worth a mention is the key operation is very smooth, no fuss, key retention let's you not have to double check it's locked, as the straight part comes off from the U, double locking is more secure than single, requiring 2 cuts instead of 1 .. hopefully it never comes to that but I rely on this chain regulary and all the oppurtunists with their little screwdriver are bitter dust in the wind and that's all that i want to achieve is remove oppurtunist threat,

for the determined, sophisticated tool wielding thief all chains have been broken off but i don't worry about them because we know they are after the Specialized, Orbea, Merida, Trek model bikes which are high value

it's a fantastic chain, I would definitely buy it again if broken as has "paid for itself" in many ways, very good for a low to mid range bike value.. no problems whatsoever. I have looked for faults but can't find any, worth the money, good value, good quality and everything.

This is a great lock. Very study, easy to handle thanks to the mini U-bar compared with some other chains locks. Sold Secure rating = silver. If you want a light-weight lock, don't take this one, as it is quite heavy. But if you want a lock that does the job, take this one!

Really hefty lock and chain - my bike has not been stolen yet! Easy to use and more convenient for storage than a large U-lock

Fortunately I haven't had any attempts on either the chain or the lock so I cannot say how effective it is at resisting attacks. However it seems very robust and is long enough to loop around the wheel, the frame and most bike stands. The nylon covering is protective enough that the paint on my bike hasn't been scratched. As for the lock, I haven't had any issues.

At this point in time I can't help but recommend it.
