When fitted will work well and hold lock in place steadily and is very worthwhile. Two points. One: The velcro strap for the smaller side of the lock split in two the other day while pulling it to fasten it around lock - mine may have been a dud one, but it should be stronger. They should test how strongly they glue/attach together the "hook" and "sticky" sections of the velcro. Two: The handlebar on my particular bike has "oversize" written on it. With this holder, it's designed to go around narrower handle bars so the piece of rubber provided to wrap around handlebar and provide grip for the holder to tighen on to was too thick. I rectified this by simply using an old piece of thinner rubber from an old bike inner tube instead. That side, when it worked it worked very well. I'll be on to them for replacement velcro straps, and also having separately purchased the lock for £60, I thought having to spend another £12 or so for this was a bit overpriced.

Took a gamble on this as it had a good review, however unfortunately I found this bracket pretty useless
Its too small to fit in a sensible place on my handlebars (as per the picture on amazon) and the velcro doesn't hold the lock in place making it bounce around on the handlebars also the bracket itself slipped round on the handlebars and did not hold the lock in place
The bracket itself looks good quality but just doesn't work well at holding the lock in place which is what I ordered it for
I am quite disappointed with this one and I wouldn't recommend it at all as it just doesn't work well enough

Struggled to find anywhere suitable to mount my lock and didn't like having to carry a rucksack with me everytime I went anywhere on my bike when I knew I would need to be able to lock it up. As many people have said before, the original general mounting supplied with the lock just isn't up to the job. Looked long and hard before deciding to give this a go despite several mixed reviews. I cycle up to 20 miles a day on my commute and I have to say, I'm genuinely impressed. I't mounted towards the centre of my handlebars and doesn't affect handling in any way. I'ts secure and fitting and removing the lock to it is straighforward with the two velcro straps. When I first used it I have to admit, there was an annoying noise of the D Lock rattling around in the lock itself but that hasn't anything to do with the mount. A couple of small pieces of garden hosed slipped over the ends of the D lock to take up the play and there you have it. A silent, secure method of mounting your lock. Thoroughly recommend it andwould definitely buy another if needed!
