The chain is a nice heavy, chunky, solid bit of kit which seems to do its job well. As there is parking at work I dont need to take the chain with me so it stays on the ground anchor at home even when I am out on the bike. At just over a meter it is a bit tight to work with which means having to keep the rear tyre very close to the ground anchor. But that is also a plus as there not too much slack for a potential nefarious individual to play with. The lock is solid and opens/closes with a turn of the key. The key cannot be removed from the lock if it is open which is a positive so there is no chance of inadvertently leaving the bike unchained.
The chain has been in service for three years in which time has kept 4 bikes of increasing rear tyre sizes secure. The fabric on the chain is still intact with no noticeable rips or tears. Bear in mind I am an all weather rider and use my bike as a daily commuter so the chain and lock gets used twice a day. The ground anchor is on the driveway so chain is exposed to the elements all year long but still does what it supposed to without fuss. I believe I may have used WD40 on the lock once in the 3 years I have owned the chain but cannot be certain and it certainly wasnt because the lock was sticking etc, was possibly more of a precautionary measure.
The chain possibly helps with insurance quotes (although I dont know how the dark arts of insurance work so may be wrong there) but it has never let me down. Am quite happy with the chain and hope it will continue to do its job for a long time.
- It seems to be very safe!
- High quality product
- In the key there is a blue ligh to help you opening the lock at night
2) Bad Things:
- It is very heavy to take with you all the time. It's a type of lock that you will leave in your garage or somewhere when you are cycling.
Negatives - may be a bit too short if you intend parking on street and attaching to a lamp post etc. But it's also a bit too long to fit under the average seat and way too heavy to carry on long trips. I attach mine to my bikes rack which isn't ideal especially if you intend touring.
If you're looking for a decent lock to use in your garage or secure area and not one that your going to use for everyday riding / commuting I'd recommend this.

Sturdy. Had my bike locked up in Hackney for a few months with no issues.Published 14 months ago by Sir George
Expensive, but bloody thick and heavy. Seeing how portable bikes are, you really need to spend a fair % of what your bike is worth on the lock. Read morePublished 15 months ago by Suavis
Wow this is heavy. It feels like it will protect my bike. At least make it real hard to steal it. It would be nice to annoy a thief. Read morePublished 16 months ago by Adrian Lewis
It's a heavy duty chain, that's for sure. Emphasis on the "heavy".
The lock is well shielded and the key hole has sprung doors to keep out dirt. Read more
