Abus Steel-O-Chain lock review£44.99

Convenient cable protection

BikeRadar score4.5/5

Abus's Steel-O-Chain is rated as a Sold Secure Bronze lock which we feel is a little short of its real capabilities. The chain itself is great quality and the lock barrel mechanism is armoured with 3mm plate to resist hammer and chisel attacks. 

The chain resisted cropping, hammering and chiselling at the usually vulnerable joint between chain and lock mechanism, and hacksaws made only small cuts into the chain in five minutes. An angle grinder made short work of the links in 33.75 seconds, but few thieves actually use these.
