How To Stop Bike Lock Rattle #Hack

Here’s a hack I’ve come up with to stop the dreaded rattle from U-locks. Mine’s a Kryptonite Evolution Series 4 but this hack should work on others. Enjoy

Nice, thanks.
I think this can be improved by using a small cutting of an old inner tube (18x700C have a small diameter).
If you do not have one, you can ask for free ones at most bike shops (anyway, they throw them away).

Sean Mayich says:

If you pull the black bands which are already on the tips of the u bar upwards when the lock bar is attached it has the same effect (that’s why they’re on there) – peace

David Stewart says:

Hi Bav – great video – I have exactly the same issue and it’s so frustrating. I’m trying a new solution which might be even easier. Couple of small pieces of BlueTac wedged on the two joins. It comes off easily and doesn’t mark the lock in anyway. Seems to quieten it down considerably

You changed my life bro. Thank you.

Merouane Agherbi says:

wow man thx so much

Eddie Olaleye says:

Nice 1… I just bought one and was about to return it! 😀

Toby Speirs says:

Have the same problem with mine. Same model. I agree, it’s incredibly annoying to have it rattling. Thank you very much.

Ben Goodman says:

great hack

JimmyPresley23 says:

Apart of the rattling, which I totally agree it’s annoying, is it secure for the bike? I’m looking for a u-lock to my new bike and this one it’s supposed to be one of the best.

Aaron Dobson says:

I used a bit of silicon tube, 4 years later still working well

KennyMinigun says:

Perhaps this video is worth submitting it to Kryptonite (ant ofc other vendors) so that they can improve their products. Because it is just a matter of a single rubber o-ring put o a prawn during manufacturing (without actually changing the lock construction and possibly compromising its security).
