Ottolock Hexband promotional videos suggesting the attack demonstrated in this video will not work:
(EDIT- The first video now has disabled comments, and the second was taken off TRvision by Ottolock, but it’s still available here: vimeo.com/332081542 )

  • ALL they had to do was NOT show a video of a guy struggling and failing to cut the OttoLock with tin snips as part of their promotion. There is no coming back from here - even if they get honest, it is too late for these guys.

  • I love that the President of Ottolock claims that breaking the lock isn't easy and you need to do it in special conditions. But the cop was like "ya Bike thieves love to target theses locks, they just snip and run"

  • By this measure, twelve layers means you need an accomplice, and thirteen layers would make it impossible to get enough hands in there. Buy then theres bolt cutters. Hmmmm.... perhaps a flawed concept for anything more than casual tying up.

  • Guys, guys... I know how to solve this.. three layers takes one hand to snip through, and "Hex" or six layers takes takes two hands to snip through. Therefore the obvious solution (following this logic) is to make one with NINE layers, which would require three hands to snip though. As no human has three hands, the lock becomes un-snippable! Presenting OttoLock's "EnneaBand", coming to an unsuspecting bike owner near you! A super catchy name, no? lol

  • I asked them what kind of quick stop they envisioned that was under 20 seconds on their Facebook page (ottodesignworks.com/use-guidelines) - waiting for a response. Here are their "Proper Use Guidelines". "PROPER USE GUIDELINES "All bike locks can be defeated by a motivated thief with proper tools, technique, and time. OTTOLOCK provides an appropriate “quick stop” level of defense against many forms of attack - not any and all tools. "The design intent of OTTOLOCK is to provide a lightweight, compact, easy-to-carry solution to prevent opportunistic theft during quick stops like getting coffee, snacks, or restroom breaks. Many stolen bikes are taken when unlocked and OTTOLOCK provides a convenient option with next to no weight penalty. "** OTTO does not claim OTTOLOCK is unable to be cut. OTTO recommends redundant locking with a quality U-lock for higher crime areas or long duration lock-ups. Users are responsible for determining their personal level of risk regarding time and location." ottodesignworks.com/use-guidelines

  • As a result of posting this video to Otto DesignWorks' FB page, they banned my account from commenting or messaging them. Sure, it's just FB - but when a company's immediate reaction to their critics is to silence them, it doesn't exactly inspire much faith in them or their products.

    • Like, you're only stopping long enough to go pee, and then continuing on your way. Yes, it can be stolen in the amount of time a person could go pee, but thieves are much less likely to wait outside coffee shops with destructive methods as they are day break areas.

      Sean GSean G19 gün önce
    • To be fair to ottolock, its not supposed to last a night. They market it as pee break security level. But the price tag will definitely convince consumers to ignore that and use it for heavy security anyway.

  • Dude. Some clown named James Buckroyd just posted a vid to bikeportland.org saying this takes at least 30 minutes to cut through. Yet this video is living proof its cuttable by a pair of Walmart tin snips in mere seconds. Why do people lie so much??? They also said that this should only be used in conjunction with a u bolt lock. If you have a kryptonite u-lock then you really don't need this at all now do you? Again, why do people lie so much?

Videos like this save the general public from apparently shoddy products that clearly aren't fit for purpose, bit like yourself

  • It’s so deceptive of this company to even suggest this lock has any durability. It’s a nice design to keep honest people honest... like the drunk guy riding away on your bike that you left unlocked for a few seconds. I bought a cheap cable lock just for the instance of literally running into a convenience store for a few seconds and not leaving my bike susceptible to just being picked up and taken. Instances like where it doesn’t need to be safeguarded from an actual bike thief. This is nice for that, but to claim any sort of durability standard is unethical. Also, at the price they’re asking for this lock, I’ll just stick with the $5 cheap cable lock. No thanks, Ottolock.

  • Watching the video of otto lock themselves trying to use tin snips, first of all the kind they are using are horrendous. Then they're also not using them correctly. And trying to cut with the tip of the cutting surface and not the base of the jaws where you'll get maximum cutting power. Absolutely they curated thier tests to make it look good.
