Just what I hoped it would be.
Easy to fit around your waist, didn't notice it after a short while. A more substantial lock than other cafe stop locks.

The Hiplok is very cleverly designed and is a superb deterrent against opportunist thieves.
Long enough to easily cable two bikes together which is an added bonus.

Замечательный замок для поездок в магазин
Говорить о какой либо серьезной защите не уместно. Это, кстати отражено на паспорте самого изделия, но для фиксации в магазине или кафе вполне подойдет.
Стоит отметить удобство фиксации при транспортировке на поясе.Запирается на ключ. Есть защита от того, чтобы не втыкали спички в замочную скважину

Excellent cafe-stop lock
For the money it is everything it should be; I wouldn't use it for my only overnight lock as it wouldn't stop a determined tealeaf but it is light and easy to carry so it does me for outside shops and cafes.
Wiggle excellent on delivery as always.

Peace of Mind
Okay. Firstly, a cable lock of this type is never going to be fantastically secure. But it has the convenience of being lightweight and wearable, which is exactly what I was seeking in a lock to use on group rides where, generally, we can keep one eye on our bikes while taking a meal stop. It will deter the casual thief or delay him/her for sufficiently long for one of the group to react and get on the scene before a bike is taken. I would not contemplate using this lock for long-term security when I am not nearby and awake! I have other, more powerful, locks for that purpose. But this one does exactly what I purchased it for.

Cheaply made and awful.
A very poor quality and overpriced lock. The clip mechanism wasnt particularly effective and always popped open until eventually it just snapped at both ends and became completely useless. Keys also very thin and twisted and bent easily in the lock, all in all it's pretty awful and now replaced with a much cheaper but more effective lock

Good but doesn't seem the most safe
Great product and easy to carry the fact you can clip it round your waist only down side for me is it I don't think it would be much of a deterrent for thieves if try saw it on the bike.
Also not to keen on it lockng without having to use the key either as you could potentially leave yourself stuck if you forgot key.

Convenient, light short-term protection
Obviously only good as secondary lock or for very short periods lock up - I use it as back-up to a D-Lock

Needed this to secure my bike at work (in an enclosed compound) and to use for nipping to the shops. The idea for being able to carry it around my waist appealed as I don't always carry a bag nor did I want to attach it to the frame.
Attaching it round the waist is simple and works well for me - 32" waist and the lock seems secure.
My only gripe is that the each end of the lock is quite large so won't fit through smaller holes such as saddle bars, wall anchors, etc.

Easy to use and it is made of high quality materials.

good design and practical - but with flaws
The means of carrying is a simple, straightforward and effective design. The cable is long enough to go round the frame and both wheels and secure to a post. I would suggest that this lock would not be adequate in a high risk area, but for securing the bike for a few minutes while shopping or outside a friend's house, it is great.
My major gripe is that on the first occasion I used the lock, the plastic cover on the end came apart. I had to pick the pieces up, press back together and continue cycling - only for it to happen 5 minutes later. I have now glued it and it is holding - but not the quality I would expect - hence only 3 stars

Doesnt do what it is supposed to do
Unfortunately the clips come undone when worn like a belt. so it cant be worn around the waist when riding. As a lock it works, but you need to carry it in a backpack.
