$30 could save your baby… The following photos are of a Kryptonite Keeper disc lock brought to us by a customer after a thief tried to chisel it off his bike. Even more amazing–the key still works and the lock still turns. Sorry thief, you lose.

Kryptonite Disc Locks and U-Locks

With a Kryptonite disc lock or u-lock, you can feel secure and safe leaving your bike outside your home or work. Disc locks prevent anyone from easily moving your bike, and Kryptonite locks have a reputation for toughness that’s on par with the company’s home city, New York.

Kryptonite is recognized throughout the world as a leader in security products for motorcycles and bicycles, and would-be thieves know it too. Attach a Kryptonite product to your bike, and that alone might be enough of a deterrent. But it doesn’t have to be, because Kryptonite is committed to producing the strongest locks available to the consumer, and they have a bulletproof reputation for customer satisfaction that’s backed up by their legendary customer service.

Many Kryptonite disc locks and u-locks qualify for the Kryptonite Anti-Theft Protection Program, which will cover a loss due to theft resulting from lock failure within a year after its purchase. Make sure you enroll in the program online when you purchase your lock, and see the individual product details below to see which ones are eligible.

Kryptonite rates their locks, cables, and chains with a security rating from one to ten, where a rating of ten provides the highest level of security for your motorcycle, and a level one is usually a low-level security accessory designed to be used in conjunction with other products. If you are going to leave your bike for a long period of time or in a high-theft area and want an extra measure of security, consider also using a cable or chain lock to prevent your bike from being picked up.

And remember, always attach a ‘reminder’ cable from the disc lock to your handlebar (included or available for purchase separately) to remind yourself to remove the disc lock when you’re ready to ride away.
