4.0 out of 5 stars Versatile, easy to use, Could be louder for beach use, 13 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: TripNeeds Alarmio Versatile Motion Sensitive Personal Alarm Cable Lock, Black (Sports)
TripNeeds Alarmio Versatile Motion Sensitive Personal Alarm Cable Lock, Black
This is easy to set up, easy to change the code and very versatile, the cable length is enough to wrap through bike spokes/ go over door handles/ be threaded through gate hasps.

One thing the instructions havent made clear is the cable end must be pushed RIGHT in - just popping it in will give the "click and chirp" but not allow you to arm it.

Though its 100db, it doesn't seem that loud (for daytime/beach use) though as we have bought it as additional security for our scooter - its loud enough to alert us should someone try tinkering at night.

Things i liked -
its really versatile and small enough to be used in lots of locations discretely
Even I understood the instructions
If the cable is cut - the alarm sounds
It "Chirps" if its moved - but (dependant on setting) wont go off unless the motion is continued
you can easily change your combination
Batteries are included
Cable can be set to length needed
its not heavy
Battery cover cant be removed too easily

Things i didnt like so much
Its not loud - but it IS piercing (not needed it yet so cant tell which would be better)
it seems a little "plasticky" (if they wanted to silence it would a good old stomp do it??)

All in all for what ive paid and what i will use it for, its suitable & reasonably priced.
