Oxford Monster Chain
Customer Product Reviews
As far as I know, no one has tried tampering with it! but - this is a very hefty chain and lock. So fat, actually, that I couldn't fit it through my bike frame but I'm happy with it as it is. It's just long enough to put round a very near post. The cover seems waterproof and stops scratches so that's a bonus. Awesome service from Sportsbikeshop :)
The chain is well made, the Velcro on the sleeve is a nice touch, makes it easy to remove and clean with undoubtedly gets dirty. My one gripe is the lock. the entire shackle comes out which makes it a little tricky when trying to support the chain and lock body. Perfectly functional for a lock when out and about. I prefer something much sturdier for locking at home. Other oxford locks I have suffer from stiffness when left in the elements for any length of time. Time till tell if this suffers the same fate.
Home Security Item
This is a great item for locking down your bike at home remembering that where it has been declared to the insurance company as a security measure it must be used without fail. The missing one star is because under the same banner "Oxford Monster" the hexagonal chain supplied can vary in thickness without any seeming logical progression given the padlock part of the package remains the same.
