What is Cable Lock Support Arm For Kuat Transfer 1 Made of


The lock appears to mount/attach to the support arm with a smalll nut and bolt. So, is the support arm made of metal or plastic? In other words, can’t a thief simply and quietly break the lock off of the support arm, quickly, i.e. with a grip wrench or other hand tool? I don’t expect it to protect against most thieves, but, it appears to simple. For the price, there are more beefier alternatives.

The top support portion of the Cable Lock and Hitch Lock for Kuat Transfer 1 Bike Rack # ATSCLK11011 is indeed made of plastic. I can't say definitively if a thief can quickly break it off with a hand tool as that's not something we try, but it is indeed mostly a deterrent.

For something that doesn't have the same type of lock that can be broken off, RockyMounts has a cable lock that can't be removed with a hand tool, and would be difficult to cut due to its hardened steel, 5/16" width construction, the RockyMounts Hooligan Chain Lock # RKY3802.
