8114 K9 HEAVY-DUTY LINK PLATE LOCK

Urban Cyclist - - On Test -

£ 34.99 www.onguard­lock.com

The 8114 is a bud­get-priced al­ter­na­tive to the more fa­mil­iar Abus Bordo Granit (£109.99), and its sim­i­lar plate and link de­sign of­fers the same con­ve­nient com­pact pack­age. Its cor­ro­sion re­sis­tance was spot on and it worked per­fectly post-test­ing. A stan­dard saw blade got through it in un­der 20 sec­onds, though, and the tung­sten blade even quicker. Bolt crop­per re­sis­tance was fair, but noth­ing spe­cial. The pull-proof disc de­sign Z-Bar­rel lock mech­a­nism is highly pick re­sis­tant but the grinder soon broke through. As a quick stop, medi­um­se­cu­rity so­lu­tion, the 8114 is miles ahead of most cheap ca­ble locks. That’s why it’s more rec­om­mended that you should use this in uni­son with a qual­ity U-lock.
