Helps secure bike to platform hitch rack that doesn't have a means of securing the bike
cable can be wrapped around hitch frame and used to secure bike/rack to car
comes with multiple keys, one has a LED, too
People have complained about locksets freezing. Proper care and lubrication PREVENTS that from happening
Locks, cables, u-locks, and chains are nothing but deterrents to thieves. If they REALLY want your bike, they'll get it. Not much can stop a cordless angle grinder.
That said, I feel at ease leaving the bike on the rack when I venture in for food, beer, or other tasty vittles after a ride when I use this lock on my platform hitch rack.
The lock is beefy, sturdy, and looks like it can take a real beating. You can feel secure in knowing that your bike is less of a target with one of these around the wheel/frame triangle.
