SAF Lock: Independently Tested and Reviewed
The Altor SAF Lock is the world's first angle grinder proof bicycle lock. Angle grinders have become the new norm in bike theft, yet every bike lock on the market is only designed to protect against hand tools. At Altor, we've been making and selling bike locks for years and have seen first-hand how destructive angle grinders can be. It became our mission to do the impossible.
We created the best, most secure bike lock in the world. Made from a 14mm hardened steel shackle, wrapped in our patented aluminum shell, and attached on both sides to a double-locking cross bar inside a hardened steel case, the SAF Lock will defend your bike against even the most determined attack.
The SAF Lock Features:
- A 14mm hardened steel shackle
- Our patented aluminum protective shackle
- 80mm shackle diameter
- Double Locking Cross Bar
- High security disc detainer lock mechanism
- Soft Outer Coating to protect your bike
- 6.2 kgs total weight
- 200 x 280 mm outer dimension
- 80 x 140 mm inner dimension
This Package Includes:
- An Altor SAF Locks
- 4 matching laser engraved high security disc detainer keys
With the portability of angle grinders and the speed at which these tools can cut, it is not surprising to see the increased brazenness of bike thieves around the world.

My lock had an internal issue that made it nonfunctional. They replaced it quickly. Thanks.
I was tremendously impressed with your SAF lock. Its quality, its size, the invincibility of it. But, unfortunately, I ride an exotic bike, a recumbent. It has a boom in front, maybe 3 inches in diameter. My thought was to lock my bike to a parking sign. But that would require a vertical and a horizontal member to be locked together...and they just wouldn't fit. (Before ordering I mocked up a version of your lock, using measurements from your website.) It seemed as if it m.i.g.h.t. work....but it didn't. Sadly, I had to return it. But would recommend it without reservation for someone for whom it does work.
Easy to transport (attaches to frame of bike), easy to lock the bike to a fixed structure, easy to unlock and reattach to the bike. Most importantly, it gives you a sense of security as you walk away from your bike.
This a pricey lock but is relatively light weight and very cool. I would want more security if i was leaving my bike in a busy place for a long time, but this is perfect for a short trip into a store or restroom.
These locks are very well made, simple to lock by depressing the button, and work well for two bikers traveling together! We used them both individually and chained together while on a two-week trip. They were compact and light enough to separate and carry with all of our clothes and gear. The included frame mount straps are secure and easy to use. Nice secure lock solution for travel with bikes, expensive but much lighter than other similar locks, when size and weight matter.
Heavy-duty and different than any other lock.
The lock itself is intimidating looking.Very heavy and bulky,doesn't offer a lot of space to lock your bike to a bike rack.the u shaped shackle needs to be longer.Other than that it looks solid.
Lock mount works well for holding lock.
I would not use anything else for locking my Huck Stinger. I was using the ABUS Extreme moto noose chain that was the same price, the chain is one of the best you can buy, its a bit heavier than the SAF and it obviously gives you more flexibility, but I was always never at peace with it, NYC is angle grinder land. Ever since I started using the SAF I feel confident that it will deter any thief. Another thing, is that I have found it more portable than the chain, it fits in the back rack and I carry it with me wherever I go.
IMHO, best lock on the market. Only 700g with generic U-lock possibilities.
It is rare that a company is proactive in making sure that the customers needs are more than just met. Alyor did just that. They identified a concern regarding my order before I did and they proactively dealt with it in an incredibly positive way. Most definitely they are a great company to deal with and I will always be happy to do business with them.
Now I can finally take my YUBA spicy curry anywhere!
