KRYPTONITE KRYPTOLOK SERIES 2 STANDARD BICYCLE U-LOCK WITH TRANSIT FLEXFRAME BRACKET

However if you are able to provide everything they ask for then Kryptonite do pay out. This Kryptonite is actually a terrible lock, Ive had 4 of them and they all stick immediately, eventually locking up the bike and requiring them to be cut off. All in all, the Kryptolok is a mid-security lock. It is strong enough to defeat most thieves without being too heavy or expensive. Absolutely horrible company to deal with, takes weeks to respond to an email, the phone service is equally bad. And it also has a very robust and popular frame mount. As for the customer service, that surprises me.

And fourthly, it is difficult to get the lock on and off the mount. The amount they are willing to pay has an upper limit depending on the security level of the lock. Now, I was using it on a reasonably smooth commute. Under this scheme, if you register your keys through their website , should you then loose them, Kryptonite will send you replacements. The Cocoweb Armbar is a relatively new, budget priced U-lock. If you register for this program and your bike is stolen as a result of your lock being broken, Kryptonite will pay you the lesser amount of either a the cost of your bike or b your insurance deductible. Failure to complete any of these steps will invalidate your claim.

You get two keys with the Kryptolok, which is not as many as with some other U-locks.

The amount they are willing to pay has an upper limit depending on the security level of the lock. You can also compare the specs to loads of other U-locks. But overall this is a great budget U-lock. There are generally four complaints about this bracket….

It is strong enough to defeat most thieves without being too heavy or expensive. However there is no after sales customer service at all with this lock.

No, that would be a shame.

This means the Kryptolok will be more susceptible to bicycel and leverage attacks. I could put it in a bag but it tends to unravel and take up lots of room. Failure to complete any of these steps will invalidate your claim. Their customer service is horrendous, it has taken 2 months to get a new correct lock from them after mine was broken and they agreed to replace it.

And the frame mount should be much better than it is. And the frame mount may be a little bit better.

No replacement keys, no anti-theft protection, nothing. Absolutely horrible company to deal with, takes weeks to respond to an email, the phone service is equally bad.

Well it is, but Kryptonite impose lot of conditions that you need to be aware of and which in some cases may make a successful claim impossible. These things happen so I emailed Kryptonite with photos of the twisted and burst lock in situ.

All in all, the Kryptolok is a mid-security lock. And fourthly, it is difficult to get the lock on and off the mount. And see how it compares to loads of other U-locks. While this is obviously very bad, the good news is that should it happen to you, if you send Kryptonite the lock, the keys and any bill you incur when removing the lock, then they will replace the lock and refund the locksmith bill!

Am I supposed to thread it through the U-lock while its attached to the mount? My advice is this: This Kryptonite is actually a terrible lock, Ive had 4 of them and they all stick immediately, eventually locking up the bike and requiring them to be cut off.

In practice the biggest problem for many people seems to be the requirement that you provide the broken lock. One week later they have not even bothered to reply. You could carry it in a bag on your back without too much discomfort. If on the other hand, you have a bike that people covet, a bike that might turn the head of a serious bike thief, then you might want to look at a more secure, more expensive lock.

All I can say is: However, this lock is breakable with hand tools. Firstly, it is difficult to attach to the bike frame.

And it also has a very robust and popular frame mount. And it entitles you to Kryptonites high level of customer service regarding lost or broken keys. Bear in mind though: But a decent frame mount would be better. It also comes with a 4 foot long, 10 mm thick cable which kryptontie help secure your wheels or seat.

The lock is left outside day and night in all weathers and I have never cleaned or lubricated it and yet it continues teansit perform perfectly!

Despite locking the bike correctly the lock was bjcycle open and the bike stolen within a week. And since you get the same bracket with all Kryptonite U-locks it would also exclude all the other great locks from Kryptonite. First of all you need to register for this program within 15 days of purchasing the lock.

In order to secure the shackle to the crossbar, you need to first hook the bent foot into correct hole in the crossbar. My advice is to treat with caution they are not as strong as the name suggests and so far customer service is non existant.

The Kryptonite Kryptolok Series 2 is the classic U-lock. But if you are dependent on a frame mount, it needs to be reliable and there are just too many bad reviews of this bracket to ignore. The Cocoweb Armbar is a relatively new, budget priced U-lock. But for lower risk areas, more modest bikes and short stops it should offer more than enough protection.

The bent foot amounts to a small hook shape at the bottom of one arm of the shackle. Then in the actual article you say it is 1. However if you are able to provide everything they ask for then Kryptonite do pay out. You should always go for a Sold Secure Gold lock in London. And for me, the security boost more than makes up for the extra weight and the price difference.
