  • I'm an owner of the first iteration, however, the term "lock" should be removed from their name. False advertising.

  • ANOTHER video with controlled conditions! You....uhhh...You used two hands? REAL criminals don't use TWO hands! You also BOUGHT that lock! Real criminals wouldn't buy a lock. That would COST them money, not be stealing stuff...

  • OK, here is my theory on the decreasing number of thumbs down from the previous posting, when there were 414 , and now there are only 386. I suspect at least 10 or 12 of those were R&D crew that were fired after this video was aired. Then, maybe 4 or 6 from the board of directors, the rest are people who gave up on this piece of joke, and did not bother clicking at all.

  • Ottolock don't have the snips tightened enough in their video, using the poor excuse that the cable twists between the blades. Ottolock also say that the cable should be snug, meaning that it should be hard to get the snips under it. Only use this if you are keeping your bike in sight. To me it seems more of a fashion or status symbol, especially how it mounts behind the seat. Fashion being more important than security to the Lycra wearers.

  • oof, use a real U-Lock and if you are worried about your lock I guess just lock you bike next to something locked with one of these.

  • have to put the band at the far back of the WISS snips. it'll be much easier as you'll get better pressure to start the cut.

  • Update September 2019. These locks, and Chinese exact knock-offs with slightly different name, are still on sales on Amazon. The marketing blurb now says “stronger than a cable lock...” as the main selling point. Define “stronger” in this instance, I hope customers don’t fall for that, especially since all the Ottolocks have one star popularity, with many reviewers referring to this video as evidence.

  • I am not a fan of cable locks, I use a cheap U-Lock on my bike ... my daughter has had two bikes stolen (in ten years) .. BOTH times she left them unsecured! :( I have myself half dozen times got the grocery store and forgot my lock :( ... I have a couple of common lock gate Carabiners left over from my rock climbing antics, many years ago, lipped my bike carrier, for hanging grocery bags etc with. On occasions I forget my lock I clip a Carabiner through the frame (or even spokes) and clip it to the bike rack in a couple spots TWICE I have seen it tampered with someone rotated one the carabiners over with the gate to the bottom trying to remove it Probably one of the hobos always begging for change at the grocery stores Anyway ... point is ANY lock ... is better than No lock! ... I locked a cheap extra length padlock to my daughters bike with the key duct taped to the lock body and painted it all black 'to match her bike' so she has a back up lock now :)

  • An ad for this lock showed up on my Facebook feed. Went to the Ottolock page and saw they had rated this “🔒🔒🔒” for security. Immediately came to see if the LPL had beaten the lock. I was not surprised he was able to defeat the lock but I have to admit I was surprised how easily it was rendered useless.

  • I absolutely love this video. And the one of the "guys in random tool room." That is the cleanest set of tools I've ever seen. In my field we use heavy duty zip ties that take two hands to cut with tin snips. The bag comes with 100 ties and cost 80 dollars. That would get you at least 100 locks. I'd say that would be 89 more than the ottolock before your bike got stolen.

  • $75 for Cutt-o-lock? Better just spend it on a bag of big zip ties and a pair of diagonal cutters. You can still secure your bike with them, with the same level of protection.

  • So, to summarize... call LPL out on a previous video where LPL just snips through a lock and cable.... then market something "twice" as strong.... that's vaguely mildly harder to snip through.... with the same tool. FFS. The problem here is not the lock or the cable, they're just there to keep honest people honest, as is any lock. The problem is the society we live in. Why should we exist in such a dysfunctional society where even a bicycle theft opportunity is preferable to doing a day's work? Fix society then weak ass locks become irrelevant.

  • What I think the biggest thing companies mess up at, is not using proper tools. A tinsnip and a properly adjusted tinsnip will have drastically different results. We also saw this with the green bike lock (forgot what it was called) where LPL used the tool rated for STEEL, and was able to cut it easily, while the Olympian used the tool rated for IRON, and wasn’t able to. When companies test their product, they need to use the best possible gear. If their lock can beat that, than they can beat most practical means.

  • Ottolock 1: 2 seconds Ottolock 2: 8 seconds Marketers see this as 4x the protection for your items compared to our old version.

  • Ottolock 362 subscribers vs LPL's 835K! trvision.net/detail/video-bpm0hCIoMqQ.html so funny you can see the blades have a full mm gap when closed. Jacob Rathe and Joshua Liberles testimonials are pure comedy. But to be fair to Ottolock, LPL didn't test this with it around a bike locked to a pole ... and also didn't test Ottolock's claims of Shim & Pick or Flame Heat protection.

  • That's brilliant. The only purpose for bike locks is time. I have 3 NY locks on my bike when I commute to work, knowing that each can be defeated but that the time to do so may deter interest. This lock would only stop the convenience theft but have zero value against "bad guys" who are always roaming for easy meat.

  • Haha... just watched the vid on the first lock, then this popped up. Had to pause and read the article before continuing to watch. It appears to me these "Ottolock" guys are shysters offering near zero protection for big bucks just based on what I've seen. Moral of the Story: Don't lock up your bike with an oversized Zip Tie, no matter what materials it is made of.
