SafetyUnlike what many people may think, tamper-proof locks do not exist. A bike lock is there to make stealing the bike more complicated, to delay the thief and therefore act as a deterrent. A good lock has an anti-picking lock mechanism and is made out of materials requiring the use of specific tools, therefore making theft more difficult.
Security ratingThe security rating helps you choose the lock that is most suited to your needs. In order to do that, B'Twin has defined a test protocol with an independent laboratory, the CNPP, based on real-life theft techniques. This unique protocol allows each lock to be given a comparable rating indicating how resistant it is to theft. This rating ranges from 0 (least secure) to 10 (most secure).

Not great24/11/2016It was cheapIt didn't workResponse of the brandDear sir,
I'm sorry to read that a thief decided to target your bike. It is always terrible when this happens.
This is indeed a basic lock and does not really provide adequate protection to keep you bike secure for long periods. It's better suited to attaching accessories, a front wheel or adding a second lock to slow the thief down (in conjunction with a tougher D or chain lock). We only give this lock a rating of 1.7/10.
Ideally we would recommend a strong sturdy D lock or a heavy duty chain to fully deter thieves.
