Kryptonites Response
Posted Sep 16, 2004, 11:06 AM ET by Chester Bullock
I emailed them the link to this yesterday. Here is their response:
We understand there are concerns regarding tubular cylinders used in some Kryptonite locks. The tubular cylinder, a standard industry-wide design, has been successfully used for more than 30 years in our products and other security applications without significant issues.

The current Kryptonite locks based on a tubular cylinder design continue to present an effective deterrent to theft. As part of our continuing commitment to produce performance and improved security, Kryptonite has been developing a disc-style cylinder for some years. In 2000, Kryptonite introduced the disc-style cylinder in its premier line of products, the New York series. In 2002, Kryptonite began development of a new disc cylinder system for both its Evolution and KryptoLok product lines, which currently use the tubular cylinder design. These products are scheduled to be introduced in the next few weeks.

We are accelerating the delivery of the new disc cylinder locks and we will communicate directly with our distributors, dealers and consumers within the coming days. The world just got tougher and so did our locks.

A sense of humour is a personality trait and characteristic without it there is only seriousness and sadness. :wink:

We've got a disk lock for our first Burgie and will be getting a second for the new one. They seem to work well.

I've got one too, but seldom use it. I bought it primarily because I had to show the Dairyland agent a security device in order to get a discount on premium. I just couldn't work up to trying to explain the built-in ignition ignition cover thingy to them. And when I did leave my bike outside when I was working evenings, I used it.

That type of lock is good for deterring the "joy ride" thief. The professional thief is just going to pick the bike up with a sling - or heft it into the back of a van with a couple of accomplices. They'll deal with the lock back at the chop shop.

You don't see any mention of a recall to put in better cyclinders.

Thank goodness I ended up with a heavy cable lock that uses a flat
key.

According to reports the Kryptonite disk lock is one of the locks that can be picked with a Bic pen.

But WAIT! I have a "PERMIT" for my Bic!
Under a clause in the Patriots Act your permit will be revoked and you will no longer be allowed to flic your Bic.
