Wheel Security

Standard quick-release levers mean your wheels or saddle could be stolen in a matter of seconds by a thief, even without tools. Anti-theft skewers replace the quick-release system with something more secure, and mean you don't have to remember to lock your wheels.

Allen key skewers

Allen key skewers

£5 each

These at least slow the thief down and mean that an allen key has to be used. Available individually or as a set.

Security skewers

Security skewers

£13 per set

For added peace of mind, these skewers cannot be opened by a normal Allen key and are provided with a special shaped key instead. Available only as a complete set for both wheels and saddle.

Extender cable

If you want to keep the quick-release levers on your wheels, but are worried about them being stolen, you can use this cable to secure the front wheel, whilst a D-lock will secure the rear wheel and bike frame. There's no need for an additional lock because the D-lock will double-up as a padlock for this cable.


Jubilee clips and P-clips

50p to £2.00 each

If you're on a tight budget and don't mind the home-made look, jubilee clips or P-clips can be used to hold the quick-release levers in place so that the wheels cannot be released without using an allen key and spanner. Probably at least as secure as using Allen key wheel skewers (above).
