Locks and chains

Even the best locks and chains will not prevent a professional from stealing your bike.  However, they will deter the more casual tea-leafs and opportunists that a lot of bikes fall victim to.

The idea being

they will slow the tea leaf down, the longer it takes to steal your bike, the higher the chance to be caught, the less likely they are to do it. the best anti theft device i've found is the 6 stone german shepherd with a loud bark!:laugh:

I agree with both your replies

but all those chains on the vid were cut (easily) using bolt croppers and not "professional" kit ie cutting torch or petrol cut off saws, so what exactly do Thatcham use to test chains, as all those cut had passed a 5 min Thatcham attack.....

???????

The issue

is probably health and safety at thatcham getting in the way of a proper test. Don't want to risk an injury by putting some force behind it now do we?

blokes were dilly-dallying, any self-respecting pik......er, oversized person of 'travelling' persuasion, would have done that in just a few seconds....if they want it, you aint stopping them....unless as mentioned a large alsation or doberman is employed.

a fat lad with a large pair of tin snips cut those chains, so why do insuarance companies recognises Thatchams findings?

had to go on a

ladder training day at work a few weeks ago, the upshot of which appears to be, avoid using one!...ie use a cherry picker, mobile tower or scaffolding are preferable.....apparently..:unsure:.  I can really see the boss stumping up to hire one of those just to fix a bit of guttering !!
