Since rediscovering the joys of riding a bicycle, I find that I am much more concerned with protecting my bike. I love heading out with my boys for a bike ride downtown but when I get there I don’t want to worry about my ride disappearing. In my small hometown, theft isn’t really much of a problem but it isn’t unheard of either. And of course, sometimes I ride my bike outside of my small town and I am always concerned about theft then.
There are many great locking solutions for preventing bicycle theft, but no company’s products are as trusted as Master Lock’s. I was recently given the chance to review one of Master Lock’s great bicycle lock products and I couldn’t wait.
I received the 8170D lock to review. This bicycle lock is a classic U-lock design with all kinds of great features to help ensure that my bike will be safe and sound when I return for it. From a disc key for superior pick resistance to a hardened steel body that resists cutting, sawing and prying, this is a bicycle lock that is designed to be secure. My husband attached the carrying bracket to my bicycle for me and when he was done, I really appreciated how convenient this lock was. I didn’t have to worry about packing it in a bag; the lock was ready and waiting, attached to my bicycle.
The lock itself was so durable and I loved the fact that it came with two keys. I put one on my key ring and stored the other one in a secret space in my house so that if I ever lost the first key I would still be able to access my bicycle. And thanks to the storage bracket, after I was done using the lock, I just positioned the long end of the lock’s straight bar in the bracket and locked it in place.
In addition to the phenomenal collection of U-locks, Master Lock offers a variety of other bicycle lock solutions including Street Cuff locks and Cable locks. With incredible features like double-locking shackles and locks that are so secure they offer $1000 theft protection guarantees, it’s obvious that Master Lock stands behind its products.
I am so happy to have such a durable and high-quality bicycle lock for my bike, but what I love the most about my Master Lock bicycle lock is the convenience. Having my lock attached to my bike and ready to be clipped onto a rack is so nice and knowing that I have Master Lock quality securing my bicycle is wonderful. If you’re looking for a secure solution for protecting your bike when you go out, Master Lock is the only name you need to know. The company’s products have been trusted since 1921 with good reason.
