Cable cut and bike stolen first time used. Not worth 50 dollars. Cheap thin cable.

That being said, just like the door locks on your car, all cable locks are a deterrent only. No matter how thick the cable, a thief with the correct tools will cut it in a matter of seconds.

Don't worry! While the instructions mention needing a blank "insert key" to install the locks, it's not actually required. By using the keys provided you can insert your lock cores into your racks without issue. You will need the blank key to remove lock cores, but never to install them.
