The BikeRegistry Security Chain w/ Monobloc Padlock - Is this the best bike lock?

While we believe our BikeRegistry Decal Kits are THE key component of any proactive bike protection strategy, we also advocate using a high quality security chain (versus U Lock or Cable) for long-term parking of your bike in high-risk environments.
CHAIN- This 3/8” trapezoidal (4 sided) link chain, manufactured in Austria by PEWAG, GmbH is “case-hardened” to resist cutting by 3-foot long bolt cutters, hack saws, reciprocating saws and/or electric grinders. In tests we have found PEWAG's trapezoidal cross section much more difficult to shear cut than our asian competitors lower quality, cheaper-to-manufacture hexagonal (6 sided) design. We use an oxy-acetylene torch to cut bulk material into one (1) meter lengths (39"). YouTube. You will not find anything like this at your local big orange box hardware store. PEWAG has produced the finest quality chains since 1730 (that’s 279 years of experience dealing with the bad guys). Chain is sheathed in anonymous black Cordura.
MONOBLOCK PADLOCK - Manufactured by the well known German company ABUS. Their model 82/70. Large enough to do the job, but small enough to tote around in your pack or under your seat. Hardened 12mm sliding shackle cannot be breached by bolt cutters once secured. Buy two or more and they can be Keyed Alike for max convenience. Demo of Lock on YouTube. Complete w/ 2 keys.This no-nonsense 5.5# chain is offered at a no-nonsense BikeRegistry price. Only $34.95 plus 44¢ for shipping via Priority Mail (3 day shipping) to anywhere in the USA. ; compact shipping box is 8 5/8"x5 3/8"x1 5/8".
