About this product
This lock fits to the frame of the bicycle or even the suspension forks. There are two positions for the shackle to fit. The first is in the inactive position when you are moving and then the active positon when the shackle slots through your bike spokesand the alarm is live. It is easier illustrated in the photos below.
Locked Position (alarm active)
Stowed Position (alarm inactive)
Each lock comes with 2 keys that opperate the anti-pick cylinder barrel.
How The Alarm Works:
Once activated the lock will become live within 15 seconds. The lock then has a fail safe movement sensor which detects movement within a 5 second period. For example 1 movement within 5 seconds will not activate the alarm. 2 or more movements within 5 seconds will then activate it. This prevents the alarm from being triggered by wind or by someone accidentally knocking the bike.
Setting The Lock - Alarm Active
1. Open the lock with the key and remove the shackle
2. Re-insert it into the body on the side through the wheel or spokes
3. After you hear the "Beep" it is set
4. It is then active within 15 seconds
Are The Electronics Weatherproof?
Although the lock does use weatherproof electronics we would not recommend this lock for prolonged outdoor use for weeks where it is exposed to rain. If there is a cover or roof preventing the lock from getting wet then it ok to be used outdoors. Remember to ensure the lock is orientated upwards so that the alarm holes are not exposed directly to the rain. Please see the Xena models as a fully weatherproof alternative.
Can I Change The Batteries?
Each lock comes with batteries installed, although the batteries are readily available from your local supermarket. If the lock is not being regularly activated then you should see at least 1 year battery life from the lock but it is recommended to test it every 2-3 months anyhow. to change the batteries remove the shackle and unscrew the screws at the bottom of the shafts. The underside of the lock will then come away where the batteries are housed.
