Mammoth Micro Disc Lock
Customer Product Reviews
Small and neat
Great little disk lock, fits perfectly on my disk holes, get on and off easy. Seems to be well made, dropped it a few times and it's still working perfectly fine. Adds that little extra peace of mind when leaving a bike in a public place as a visual deterrent for potential nasty people.
A great little disc lock.
I bought the mini disc lock as I received a voucher with a previous purchase from sportsbikeshop. It literally cost £1 but a pound well spent. Although the keys are different shown this disc lock is well worth it. It lives up to its name as it certainly is a micro lock. Its not been tested by thieves but I can see it being very awkward to cut ect because its size would make it very difficult to work on. Its very handy to carry on my scooter or put in your pocket. As always a great all round and quick servive from sportsbikeshop.
Compact security lock
For what you buy this for, it does an excellent job! They act as a clear visual deterrent, because we all know that if someone comes to steal your bike, they will get it somehow. But this will slow potential thieves down and make it more difficult. They are also small enough to fit two into my bike jacket pockets, so I always carry them with me when I am out! Thanks for the usual first rate service at SBS too!
Cheap disc lock
Nice little lock and small enough to keep in your pocket. Hit and miss as to whether it unlocks when you need it to, I spent 3 or 4 mins the other day trying to take it off which was frustrating to say the least. Gave it a friend who has not had a problem as yet.
Excellent as a second lock
For such a low price this works great as a second lock. Adding a second lock adds more time to cut through and thieves armed with battery powered angle grinders usually only take in mind how long it takes to cut through one lock. Locks on both wheels means thieves can't lift up one wheel and roll the other. This disc lock fits in your palm and isn't bulky on your pocket. I specifically got this one so that if I go down with this in my pocket it won't mangle my leg. The keys are different from the picture. It doesn't come with a case. It doesn't unlock easily and you need to fiddle with the key to find the right position for the barrel to roll, this is why I give it 4 stars.
Peace of Mind
Forget the negative comments about functionality and keys. This lightweight lock is primarily for in-transit security. Carry in your pocket and secure the bike. The deterrent factor alone justifies the competitive price. If I were looking to steal a bike, I would walk straight past a bike secured by this.
You get what you pay for
This product is different to the product shown and even I wouldn't take long to break it off the bike. It is what it says, just a deterrent. On the plus side it does fit in your pocket so would be useful on a day ride out but I wouldn't feel good leaving my bike for long with just this lock on it.
Can't really comment on performance, as thankfully nobody has attempted to break the lock. It's lightweight so handy to carry with you, it's easy to fit on the disc brake and the colour makes it very visible which I'm sure acts as a deterrent. I use this as a secondary device for added protection.
Does the job - hopefully
For what it is I can't fault it. It's cheap and small and makes my bike slightly harder to nick. I'm sure it won't hold up for long against a hammer but it makes things harder and my insurance requires a disc lock of sort but doesn't state what kind. This fits in my jacket pocket easily and I hardly know it's there.
