Tom got in touch with us to share his story on the angle grinder attempt on his LITELOK X1.
"I happen to be a police officer in a specialist robbery team in the Metropolitan Police and I heard about the Litelok through one of our internal forums where we discussed which locks stand up to the most rigorous testing. After hearing about this and seeing how competitively priced they were, I purchased a Litelok X1 for personal use.
I was glad I did, as within only a few days of receiving the lock, someone tried to steal my bike with an angle grinder from outside my flat. Thankfully they were unsuccessful and the bike was still locked firmly to the bike rack when I found it in the morning.
I just wanted to let you know that I am grateful for the product and I have basically told everyone I see with a bike about your product since then and will continue to do so."
The rise in bike theft could be enough to put people off cycling, but we want to keep the passion for cycling and motorcycling alive with our locks, to help secure your lifestyle and provide peace of mind.
It's bittersweet hearing and reading your success stories, because we enjoy hearing from you and knowing the lock has saved your bike, but it's awful knowing you have gone through a bike theft attempt.
If you have a story or a success story to share, we would like to hear from you! Email us on: Marketing@litelok.com
