3.0 out of 5 stars Prone to Sticking!, 29 Nov. 2010
This review is from: Kryptonite KryptoLok Series 2 Std U-lock with 4 foot Kryptoflex cable (Sports)
I am a very careful person, and look after my belongings well. Based on this fact, I decided to purchase this lock despite the mixed reviews - i.e. I thought some oaf-like person might mistreat their lock and get it stuck, and break the key etc. but no no not ME. So... as it turns out after two weeks of using the lock, I went to unlock my bike and the lock got stuck. Luckily I was practically next door to a Halfords where I walked in for help - "Help, my Kryptonite lock is..." "Stuck? Is the key stuck in the lock?" "Er, no," "Oh, so you can't get the key in?" "Yes! That's right?!". This clearly wasn't novel to the very helpful sales assistant who sprayed some oil in the lock and set me on my way. Since then I regularly spray the lock with oil and so far, so good. It still feels a bit 'sticky', and has got temporarily stuck - where I've had top wiggle the key about etc. Also, the lock would not fit within the triangle of the frame, so I positioned the lock lying flush along the left edge of the seat tube - which works fine but is faffy to set-up. For the price, this is a good, solid lock, but I would not reccommend it as I feel like I'm playing roulette every time I use it.
