How secure is this lock?
We'd be happy to use this for casual or temporary stop-go security in the street. But for overnight or long term protection, a range of measures is essential.
Our own motorcycles are always kept behind a closed gate, in a locked garage, and secured to a ground anchor. Plus we've all got CCTV, and we often use cars to block access.
Sound extreme? We think it's not extreme enough, but it doesn't always pay to throw more oil on the fire of paranoia. You've gotta live too.
Tip: Invest in a quality motorcycle cover if you can. They can be a pain to use and remove, especially after a rain storm, but that also works in your favour. Good security means delaying the thieves for as long as possible.
Technically no. The Fury lock and chain was recognised by SOLD SECURE© and approved to its SILVER rating level. However, the licence for this lock and chain has not been renewed (possibly as a cost saving measure). Therefore SOLD SECURE© doesn't currently recognise it.
Does that matter? Not to us. It's the same lock that it always was. And we're happy to use it and sell it. But if you need to display a current SOLD SECURE© rating, you should look elsewhere.
Note that to get a SOLD SECURE© SILVER rating, the initial testing fee is currently £1,650 per product. Then there's an annual audit fee of around £550—and that fee applies to a single item. The same lock with a longer chain, for instance, would require another audit test. If the audit has not been renewed for a few years, the testing needs to start from "scratch", which means that another £1,650 fee is payable.
Money for old rope? Or chain? You tell us. SOLD SECURE© naturally, and fairly, wants to capitalise on its resources. Just keep in mind that in terms of security, the presence (or absence) of a SOLD SECURE© sticker is but one part of the story. Locks with SOLD SECURE© ratings are still crackable.
