Oxford Boss Alarmed Disc Lock
Customer Product Reviews
Nice and sturdy
This lock is really big, bulky and bright, so thieves will definitely run away when they see one of these. The only thing I could ask for is for the alarm to be a little bit louder. Not that the alarm featured in this one isn't loud, it is, it's just that it would be nice to have an alarm that makes your ears want to explode whenever you hear it.
Easy to use
Really simple design, as advertised works with a chain if needs be so slightly on the large size for a disc lock. Alarm is plenty loud enough and is sensitive enough without going off all the time. Just make sure its secure where it sits and any covers don't interfere to avoid it falling and then going off
No lock is unbeatable but the heftiness and visibility gives a sense of security every time I walk away from my bike. It is obviously a quality build and is easy to use- practice and you will soon be able to unlock it without too much trouble and only letting the alarm sound for a second or so.
A great deterrent
This is a good strong lock and a big visible deterrent. I have to say that the alarm isn't very sensitive but does go off if moved quite a bit which would probably be the case if trying to get it off the disc but wobbling it a bit has no effect. I think it had paid for itself already though. I had my bike's rear number plate stolen in the car park yesterday?? However the car park security footage shows that the thieves (4 males who pulled up in two scooters) had first checked my bike and the one beside it and were deterred as both were locked to a rail with good security chains. I'm positive that seeing my (Oxford Revolver) cable lock with the addition of this large, highly visible 'day glow' Oxford Boss padlock was what prevented a full bike theft. Nothing is 100% secure these days but these deterrents do work!
Bigger is better, a lock that holds it own
This is a fantastic lock/disc lock. I use this is combination with a chain and my wheel spokes. Locking this around a wheel spoke and attaching a chain makes it a difficult item to remove with a saw. Well worth the money for the lock alone but adding an alarm just added so much more security. you need this in your life!
