    If it is just to alert you to a scrote grinding through all the other stuff you have then get an alarmed disc lock and save yourself a fortune in cash and the headaches


    And don't forget the pound of butter in the fridge
    Cheers for the headsup, I will do that then, so 2 disc locks one with alarm, anti pinch pin, and a pound of butter in the fridge, lmao, still aint figured out what that butter story is, guess im to new to the forum, advice highly appreciated.

    I've been involved in numerous incidents where people were arrested for either thefts, burglaries or for offences of going equipped and have never yet recovered a set of lock picks.

    Angle grinders,battery drills , crowbars, bolt croppers ,slim jims, window punches, acetylene cutting gear, hydraulic cutters, pass keys, electronic scanners and so on but never lock picks.

    They appear to have gone the way of 'Gentlemen Thieves , Jelly Men and black and white films '
    Yes, but those days were before Mobile Smartphones and YouTube University. Kids nowadays are smart hackers

    But having said that, unless you have the bike keys, ideally you'll need some pretty dumb 'mates' to help you move the bike.

    Can't see sophisticated intelligent lock pickers teaming up with dumb mates to steal a bike, unless its proper organised crime.

    Again, not really impulsive opportunists are they.

    The abloy 362 is a great lock for use with the Almax chain and ABUS WBA 100 ground anchor or the 342 for smaller installations and sheds



    Caution : May stop suddenly

    At the end of the day, nothing will stop the Professional scumbag taking your ride, but the majority of bikes stolen, are by the lowlife scumbag opportunists, so if you can give them a hard time they will usually not bother and move on, and with the justice system, nobody can help to save your bike, because if they touch the lowlife scumbag, that poor person gets prosecuted, so basically try to make it as hard as possible to steal, and if it goes, well insurance is there for that.

    I just watched a scary YouTube video of it being picked in just over a minute.

    Question: is it frowned upon to attach bird and fox scaring type shotgun cartridge mechanisms to my bike or close by?
    Have a go yourself with your picks, the problem with these videos is that you don't know if the lock has been doctored, if all the mushroom pins have been substituted for plain then it can be picked easily, if the guy pulls the rubber bumper down and shows it as a LEV3 LCBS padlock then fair enough it cannot be taken apart.

    No way do the Lock Lawyer or BosnianBill 'doctor' the locks they pick. Plenty of time they are happy to admit then they're beaten by a lock.
    But, they are very experienced pickers.
    Skills like that are unlikely to be found in a common bike thief.
