Sold Secure test and rate bicycle locks sold in Britain. The locks are graded Bronze, Silver and Gold and are dependent on the length of time it would take a bicycle thief to break the lock. The higher the rating, the higher the level of security provided.

You must have the appropriate lock based on the value of your bicycle. To help you choose the right lock, we’ve selected a range of recommended bicycle locks for different bicycle values.
