Customer Reviews:

  • Only Looks Secure
    11/28/08 - Buyer Beware: I had two bicycles stolen (over $1400 value) from my garage when a thief cut through a related product of same design OnGuard Akita 5080 Bicycle Security Cable (Lock Not Included) in one slice. Looks like they used a chain cutter. Unless you're using this as a theft deterrent or for low value items, don't fool yourself that you're buying security....more info
  • STOLEN
    DO NOT BUY A BIKE LOCK LIKE THIS. I had my bike stolen because the thief cut right through the chain. This lock would have been useful if I had a U-lock in addition. I learned my lesson....

    Spend the money and get a nice lock! Your bike will thank you....more info
  • Does the job
    I use these for locking together all of my bicycles in my garage, as suggested by the police so that if someone does break in they are much harder to steal. This cable does not mar the finishes on the bicycles and is the perfect length! Amazon's price was good, and I got it quickly through Prime!...more info
  • Much stiffer and heavier than it looks online
    I bought this cable thinking I would use it to thread through my bike seat to keep it from getting stolen (using a separate lock for the bike itself). This cable is actually very sturdy and thick enough to use on an entire low-value bike. The cable is stiff and heavy, and it is too big as a seat-keeper....more info

  • Bicycle Security Cable
    This is obviously a high quality product. My only probem is that I bought a cable that was about twice as long as I really needed. I'm sure that I will find a use for this cable at some point. Ordering the wrong length was my fault....more info
  • OnGuard 5043 Security Cable
    Good design and well built cable. Ends are large enough to wrap many things through. Perfect length to lock both tires of a bike with (it's a little tight at first, but with practice one can figure out how to make the cable reach a little further). Perfect for bikes with quick release tires. Should be used in conjunction with a fortified O-lock or U-Bolt for best results....more info
  • Best used for the purpose intended...
    First of all, the thing to understand about this cable is how it is intended to be used. You can use it as a low-security bike lock with a padlock of your choice. Onguard's web site rates the security of their products and the rating on this one indicates the amount of security it provides. You can also use it in tandem with a u-lock to secure your front wheel to the u-lock and the rest of your bike. In this situation the security provided should be quite good.

    Secondly, the quality of this cable is outstanding for what it is. All of the pieces fit together very nicely and the materials used are excellent. This is a far nicer choice than many others out there.

    So if you are looking for a decent lock in low-crime areas or if you want something to use with your more protective u-lock this is a great choice. On the other hand, if you think you can use this and some padlock you've got lying around then you are going to be disappointed....more info
  • High Security, but thick and heavy
    The thickness of this cable is about as thick as a woman's pinkie finger. It's pretty thick as cables go. The ends are plenty big enough to slip over a U-lock. This is a good cable for going though a front tire, but it's so thick and heavy that it will be somewhat difficult to slip through anything else, and a bear to carry.

    Cables of any kind are really just to keep someone without tools from walking away with a part of a U-lock secured bike. A thinner cable is going to provide just about the same security, but will be easier to deal with and can be used to secure a seat, or a rack, which require a thinner cable. This one is perhaps a little too thick to secure those things and will be a pain to carry around. Like another reviewer, I was looking for something a lot thinner, and this wasn't it. However, like the other reviewer, I'm sure I'll make use of this one.

    Note, this cable is 7 feet and that is a much easier length than 6 feet, which is about an inch or two too short in some situations. 7 feet is a real plus. I have a very thin cable that is a dream to carry, and goes through anything but it is only 6 feet and I sometimes struggle to make it reach my front wheel, seat and mountain rack and still fit onto my U lock. ...more info
