Rated 5 out of 5 by slopedargon Flexible and easy to use
I bought this to lock bikes at trail centres whilst taking a break. The lock stays in the car when not being used to lock the bike. The design is very flexible in that any slack is easily taken up and the feed through mechanism is slick (thus far). It's much nicer than coil designs which seem to snag on everything, make it difficult to use the full lengh and awkward to lock/ unlock. None of those issues with this lock, so it's quick and easy to secure two bikes to posts.
It is relatively heavy though, so I won't be carrying the lock on the bike.

I loved this lock and used it for many years - but, very recently I parked my bike in a less secure area only to find it gone at the end of my working day.
For short term locking in somewhere 'nice' it's fine and really easy to use and very portable, but it needs to be used with a D lock.
Hope that helps

I agree with skidmark this shouldnt be relied upon as your main bike lock but is handy to carry in your bag and put off the undetermined theif. The cinch design makes it very adaptable I mainly use it to lock the bike to the roof rack or lock it to the fench when down the pub.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Useful lock and canny design
Whilst it's not going to put off a determined theif with a small bolt cutter it's definately a handy lock to have.
The cable is replaceable with optional longer cables to lock the wheels to the bike, and as it has no cable head or loop it can be slid into other things you want to lock up as well as the bike, eg bike helmets, seat rails etc, and can lock you bike to things that don't allow ordinary cables to pass through, like car luggage restraint loops. The lock works by gripping the plastic cable sleeve so can be tightened to take up the cable slack. It's also light enough to carry in your rucksack.
