Oxford Revolver Cable Lock
Customer Product Reviews
Oxford Cable Lock
I bought this in addition to the Heavy Duty Oxford Chain. I wrap this one through the tyre as it is a bit longer and more manoeuvrable. Also carry it in backpack for journeys when i know il be stopping off. Would certainly recommend but probably alongside a stronger chain for overnight / increased security needs.
A great lock.
This lock has paid for itself already. Buying a chain is always a compromise between the weight/size/portability against the actual thickness/strength of the cable/chain. The best chains are huge and can weigh over 7kg, the cheaper ones are little more than push bike locks and are easily cut with bolt cutters. After quite a bit of research I chose the Oxford revolver as it had good reviews and is a good thick cable but will coil into a double loop which fits into my legshield toolbox and isn't too heavy (3.2kg I think). I had my number plate stolen yesterday?? but the car park security footage shows that the thieves had first checked out my bike and the one beside it and were deterred as both were locked to a rail with good chains. I am glad I decided to recently 'beef up' my security. I had also bought an Oxford ''Boss' alarmed disc lock. Nothing is 100% safe these days but I'm confident these deterrents do work!
Have 3 of these cable locks now. Keep one on each bike in my topbox. Easy to use. Much lighter in weight than corresponding chain length.Have large touring machines ,so find the 1.8mtr length suits me best. Deterent value, easily seen, put over seat, through frame and back wheel.
Quality lock, heavy and sturdy, great for securing two bikes together or one bike to a post. The chain I use at home is too heavy to transport around so this fits the bill nicely, I'm sure a professional will get through it but it puts another obstacle in the way of the tow rag bike thief.
Anchoring the chariot.
Bar taking the same quality product and leaving it tied to a oxygen tank at the top of Everest would you wont to put your bike in better trust. That said if your access points of anchoring are awkward the outer sheath will be compromised and it wont be the quickest lock to us either.
Solid! Well thought out and put together product.
I'm very impressed with the build quality. A heavy duty cable wrapped in thick plastic for paint protection. 4 keys instead of the usual 2 or 3 and the sliding cover for the lock is a nice touch too. Definitely recommend.
