Had a spooky event happen this past week.....
Used my Kryptonite 3000 Retractor Cable Lock at a coffee stop. Ran the 36" cable thru the sleeve of my Joe Rocket summer jacket and then thru the chin strap on my X-11.
Wonderful brunch at the Cardiac Franchise and then on my way....so I think.....
The %^**#$ cable would NOT release after putting my 4 digit pin into the lock!!
Tried several times, no luck....could not get to my tool box because of the way I locked the cable!!!!
A very pleasant gentleman came out to his MB 300 sedan, and I asked if there was a chance he had a wire cutter or pliers with him (fat chance for an MB!!) He opened his trunk, and it looked like Home Depot...power saw and all!!!! He lent me his vice-grips; and wacko my Chinese mad Kryptonite Lock cable was history!!!!!
Do NOT allow this to happen to you......I bought the product at a Gen-U-Whine BMW dealer who insisted it was the greatest thing since sliced bread. I used it 3 months without incident, BUT I was very lucky to find help so quickly.
I now use my old simple cable with the funky chrome Master combo lock.......which I have used for 18 years.
Avoid the grief!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
