Okay, but an ATP search warrant is NOT free.

I like this lock, its strength and confidence in it. However, I was immediately not happy about being duped about the "anti-theft guarantee". It costs EXTRA. it makes sense, but the advertising was deceptive and perceived as included. in fact the only reason i paid more for it was because i thought i would get it. i would probably just buy a cheaper one if i understand -foot cable is a must for Passengers. Another complaint is that sometimes the key doesn't work. I can't figure out when thatโ€ฆ

Pros
  • internal dimensions of the lock; Cable Length 4" x 9"; 4"
Cons
  • Minor issues

Block low quality and fake ads!

ATTENTION! If you purchase this lock from AMAZON, you will NOT be able to register it with the THEFT PROTECTION OFFER (ATPO) service through the Kryptonite website. I purchased this lock listed as "Kryptonite-New-U Kyptolok Series 2 Standard Bike U-lock with 4ft flex bike cable"; However, the prefix letter on the key is a "P" to indicate it is not a Series 2! Unfortunately you will need a detailed receipt when registering your lock on the ATPO website and as the lock does not match the key type

Pros
  • 12.7mm hardened steel shackle resists hand tools, bolt cutters and levers; 10mm steel loop cable for added security
Cons
  • Appearance

What I like: I find that 9x4 inch locks are the universal choice for locking a bike. I have tried a "mini" lock and have never been able to successfully lock my bike with a lock through the frame and wheel. These locks might work if you just need to securely attach the bike to a specific rack and the geometry is right, but I found that there are at least two photos on the Kryptonite website that just show the mini lock around the frame and rack. Hm. But a lock of this size has always enabled me

Pros
  • Anti-theft offer; Refund up to $1,750
Cons
  • Not bad, but...
