Rated 3 out of 5 by Andhedrew Nothing too complicated. Theives don't like them. Bike owners do.
It's a lock. It has a metal loop. It has a keyhole. It has a keyhole cover. It works.
There is nothing special about this lock, it does what you want it to do: deter theives.
The construction of the lock is pretty stock standard, hardened steel with a slight plastic coating and a plastic cover over a, presumably, metal locking mech. It has a little plastic slide to put over the keyhole to protect it from the elements.
When you unlock it and detach the 'D' section, the key remains in the lock, if you twist the key back it locks it up. Pretty simple. The slide cover is a little stiff, but no big deal.
When reinserting the 'D' section, you have to be precise otherwise the lock will not lock, it is a little fiddly sometimes.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Dutch lasted only a month
It didn't get any abuse but stopped working after a month, can't lock it anymore. Quite a waste of money

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Honest lock.
At first glance, this lock might not inspire you safety as much as a Kryptonite would, i think much because its hard plastic base. Well built but a cheap detail. Honestly, it took me some time to make sure this lock does the same tough job the expensive ones do. I have 2 other Kryptonite locks and this one seems even to have better "locking plugs" than the Krypto, disregarding they have identical keycoding type. And it comes with 3 keys. After all they all come from China.
It would be nice if it came with a bracket too.
It's a very honest lock and for the price this is good for low or moderate crime areas.
