The lock kit is a generally good piece of gear. I like the fact that both locks are keyed to the same keys, and its compact storage. I dislike the fact that it really only secures the last bike on the rack. If you have only one bike on the rack, it has to go in the farthest position. A bit more length on the lock chain would have been nice.
It works well, but its a bit short.
Installed on my Yakima Doubledown 4. Keeps everything buttoned up and helps secure the hitch so there's zero movement. Nice stow away feature of the cable into the rack and the locking bolt give me piece of mind . Not many nice looking integrated locking options for the Yakima racks so this one is a great easy reliable lock.
Lock works great. It connects to the Yakima Double Down then wraps around the outside bike and locks. It has a second lock that locks the bike rack to the hitch. Both locks are keyed the same. Definitely worth the money when you consider the amount of money you spent on your bikes
Yes, do you think that the investment is worth it? 1% of the bike value you have on your rack in my case justify totally it. Easy to install, not so easy to cut if you're not a pro, pretty well equiped.
GREAT lock BUT you can cut through the cable with ordinary bolt cutters, no problem. But its a perfect fit for the rack. As we all know if a thief really wants the bikes they will get them anyway.
The DeadLock is a good security product and very convient. My wife had no problems with it last weekend. It could be a foot or so longer.
I am very please with the rack itself, however, in order to fully secure the yakima hitch and rack mounts, both ski and bike it creates a problem.
First Yakima doesn't supply the hitch with adaquate equipment to lock it to the car/truck etc. Yes, you are provided with enough locks to lock down the skis or bikes, but not the hitch. It will generally cost another $50-$70 for locks alone. Plus the end of the pins must be turned down/ w/lathe to allow a yakima lock to secure the brackets. I had to purchase another 3 locks. @ yakima and 1 for the class 3 bolt onto the car.
