tex–lock eyelet - Textile bicycle lock with mini u-lock
The tex-lock eyelet is a lightweight, multi-layer textile lock with a hardened metal core. Each layer of the high-tech fibers fulfills an individual function and thus protects your bike from theft by attacks with bolt cutter, fire and saw. At the ends of the rope there are hardened and plastic-coated metal eyelets. It is secured with the "loop-through principle", in which you put the end with the small eyelet around the frame of your bike and a solid object. Then the small eyelet is guided through the large eyelet and the small one is connected to your bike with the included u-lock. Due to this principle and the flexibility of the lock, you will be able to safely lock your bike anywhere. The soft surface also protects the frame from scratches and nothing rattles on the bike while riding.
The tex-lock eyelet is available in orange, black, grey-black blue-blac, bordeaux-beige and in three different lengths:
With the minimalist 80cm of size S, you will always find a place where you can easily get around the frame. In addition, the lock takes up little space and only comes to a total weight of 1.24 kg.
The eyelet of size M with a length of 120 cm and a weight of 1.51 kg is a true "all-rounder": You can really get around everywhere with the lock and thus it can be used in many ways. In most cases, you can also secure the front and rear wheels as well as other parts.
The 160 cm "length miracle" eyelet with size L is ideal for cargo bikes or bikes with a long wheelbase or you can safely lock several bikes at once.
At that time, videos of the first version of the tex-lock eyelet appeared on the net, in which the lock was cracked with a saw in a very short time. After that, the textile lock was revised and provided with a hardened chain inside, which significantly improved the saw resistance. The fact that the current version of the tex-lock eyelet with U-lock is safe has been independently confirmed several times and has been awarded the British "Sold Secure Silver" and the Dutch "ART2" certification.
In addition to the certificates received, the innovative locks have also been positively tested many times by other independent experts in the bicycle industry in terms of safety, design, handling and flexibility. In a blog post, the manufacturer from Leipzig has compiled some of the bicycle lock tests. You can find it here
The tex-lock eyelet is not only comparatively light, but also easy to handle and thus versatile due to the enormous flexibility, comparable to a rope. In contrast to a rigid u-lock, the tex-lock can be placed around and through all sorts of objects like a snake. Due to the existing length, not only the frame can be locked, but in addition to the wheels, other components such as the saddle can also be secured. Several protective layers ensure that different tools have to be used to crack the lock. This significantly contributes to increasing the duration of the break-up, which will ultimately make any thief give up.
The listed advantages and the selectable color variants, which additionally provide individuality, make the tex-lock eyelet a unique bicycle lock: lightweight. beautifull. secure.
