These quick-release bicycle wheel locks are easily fitted and can be left in-place when using your bike. This is the MK2 Version! 

Designed to combat the security concerns of the popular quick-release fittings used on most new bikes to secure your wheels to the forks; these quick-release locks remove the ability to release your wheels from your bike without the use of a key first. 

Convenience vs Security - why not both?

The idea behind the quick-release functionality is purely convenience.  While this method of allowing you to simply flip a lever to release the wheel from the forks is most definitely very convenient, it has its major downfalls when it comes to security.

If you're securing your bike via a cable, chain or D-Lock through the wheel then all a thief needs to do is flip this quick-release lever, and they can take off with your bike - minus the wheel.  Sure, they can't ride it away, but you've still lost your bike, and all they have to do is fit a new wheel and they now have a complete bike - your bike!

Similarly, if you have a decent chain or D-lock securing the actual frame of your bike, and not the wheels, then this may seem to resolve the problem - but bike wheels are still valuable, and can still be a quick and easy target for thieves when they spot these quick-release levers.

A quality UK-manufactured product

Manufactured here in the UK, these quick release wheel locks are made from aluminium, which of course offers superb light-weight and weather-resistant properties.  Similarly the tough shackle is chrome-plated, protecting the steel core from the elements and therefore preventing rust / corrosion. 

Fitting these is simple - due to the two-part design of a separated shackle, the body simply slides over the quick-release lever, and the shackle then slots into the body, over the 'shoulder' of the quick release lever.  Because the body acts as a sleeve over the lever, and the shackle loops over the shoulder there is no way to slip the lock off or manipulate it into allowing you to operate the lever.

Similarly, if someone were to attempt to pivot the lever to undo the wheel without lifting the lever, they would fail because the body of the padlock will quickly hit the forks and render their efforts useless.

It is worth noting that these are designed to fit the modern 'slim' style of lever - rather than the older thick levers.   See the diagram below:
