Master Lock Street Cuffs Dirty Little Secret
August 15, 2004 By Jorge
This is a great lock for that cool look and ease of storage and mobility.
It is also great because there are many ways to lock your bike with the street cuff.
Especially when you have to lock your bike onto bike rails on campus, etc.
Sometimes that traditional U-lock gives you a headache trying to figure out how to lock your bike.
Overall,for the first impression part of this product I give it an A+.
From what I understand, a security locks main purpose is to secure your investment.
In this case it would be our bikes.
So what is the point of having a security system if it doesn’t protect your investment?
Masterlock did do a good job by innovating a security system based off traditional handcuffs.
But did they know that there is a very fatal weak point in this product?
The actual incident I encountered….
I have had my bmx for roughly one month and I used the Master Lock Street Cuff for my security.
One day I didn’t feel like hauling my bike 3 flights of stairs to my apartment.
So I cuffed my bmx to a 6 foot master lock street chain that was securing my motorcycle.
Next day my bmx was gone.
The thief had cut right through the link of the street cuffs.
(I have made a website in order to show some pictures of the street cuffs cut in half.)
The main purpose of a security system is to secure our investments.
If the product can’t serve the main purpose of a security system.
Then it fails to even be considered a worthy product to purchase.
