I am not an expert in locks but this one saved my bike from being stollen. I have no idea what was used on it, but it looked pretty advanced (considering the marks it left) and the only damage on the chain was on the plastic cover - the metal hasn't moved! And the bike was left on a deserted spot the whole night. Somebody using tools like that one had a lot of time to work... but did not have success! Maybe there are better locks out there but damn for sure this brand made me trust in it and when I buy a chain again it will be the same brand.

I bought this lock and the key snapped in half in the lock mechanism when I tried to unlock it. I was not applying any more force than you would expect. When I contacted Abus they sent me the following email saying that it was due to "user error" and I would require an angle grinder to free my bike. The bike is locked in a public place where there is no electrical point to plug into therefore I have lost my bike:

"Thank you for your e-mail regarding your ABUS lock and we are sorry to hear that you have had an unfortunate experience with this product.

A key which has snapped in a lock is usually the result of not fully inserting the key into the locking mechanism and is seen by ABUS as user error and not a manufacturing defect.

If the key is not fully inserted into the lock barrel before you try to open the lock, the barrel will start to turn but the lock will not open. If more force is then applied to the key it can result in the key snapping.

If the key is fully inserted into the lock barrel and the lock barrel is seized the amount of force needed to snap the key is very excessive. If you snap the key you should be left with enough key sticking out so that it might be removed with a pair of pointy nosed pliers.

If you are left with a piece of key stuck inside the lock then it is clear that the key was not fully inserted when it snapped. For this reason it is doubtful that your retailer would be willing to replace the lock and reimburse you for your costs. However any claim regarding warranty or compensation should be directed to the shop from which it was originally purchased

The only way to remove your lock would be to use an angle grinder.

Unfortunately we are unable to assist you further with your query.

Yours sincerely

This chain is the mutt's nuts! At 1.1 m, it will certainly keep your bicycle locked up to whatever you've chosen! I carry it with me slung over my shoulder. Please take note that it weighs about 2 kg, and will squeak over time if you carry it like I do (when the links rub against each other)...

I'd give it 9/10!

I wish I had read the 1-star review before purchasing, because exactly the same thing has happened to me: after just six months of use the key snapped! I had used the lock often, but not even daily. I SWEAR I didn't use any excessive force (I wish I could say I had underestimated my own strength, but no)!! Luckily I was able to insert my broken key on top of the snapped off piece and carefully unlock it, so my boyfriend and I (I had chained his bike up as well!) could cycle home and I didn't have to go through the pain of getting a grinder or a locksmith on the scene. I wasn't able to pick out the snapped off bit, so after just a couple of months of use I could bin the lock. A real shame, because up until then I was very pleased with it.

The key is definitely the lock's "weakest link" and since ABUS will pass it off as a user error, and will therefore take no responsibility what so ever, I would NOT recommend this lock!!

I have been really pleased with this. Had it for two years...and I still have my bike!

Lots of spare keys. Never oiled it but it still unlocks/locks easily. Outer casing has never frayed. It is heavy, but not ridiculous, and it's really flexible so never had any problems attaching it to things. Very highly recommended, I've got lots of bikey friends and never seen anyone with a lock that I thought seemed superior.

I didn't realise this would be so heavy! It certainly will do the job of stopping thieves, they would have to be Chris Hoye to cycle off with this on their backs even if they get to pinch the bike! To be honest it's a bit over the top for my use, the nearby Sainsburys I use is not in a high crime area. That said it does seem an extremely good lock and should put off all but the most determined thief.

Product arrived quickly, exactly as described/sold.
The chain is quite heavy, but that's not an issue for me as I'll be carrying it in a rucksack when cycling. It also gives the impression that it's extremely sturdy & strong.
As most thieves are opportunists who will take the easiest option available, they will more than likely look elsewhere when my bike is locked with one of these & the Abus Granit X-Plus I also purchased.

Highly recommend the product & the seller.

Very very strong lock, for a bicycle (which is what I use it for) Conversely, it is also very heavy. The lock length isn't too long, you'll have just enough to loop through a wheel and a frame, but it does feel very secure. The links are also square, I think that makes it more difficult to cut with hand tools.
