How to find the best bike lock on Amazon
When searching Amazon bike locks, it’s important to read and compare the product descriptions carefully. Because the listings are written by individual retailers on the Amazon marketplace. They can often be missing key information, such as the Sold Secure rating on bike locks.

Sold Secure is a security rating given to bike locks after rigorous strength-testing by the Master Locksmiths Association. Bike locks are rated on a rising scale from Bronze (least secure), to Silver, Gold and Diamond (most secure). With the amount of time it would take to break the lock increasing as you go up the scale.
This is the most important thing you should look at when choosing your bike lock, whether you get it from Amazon or elsewhere, and especially if you want your bicycle insurance to remain valid in the event of a theft.
