    Ulock mounting options

    Hi All, Has anyone heard of aluminum ulock mounts? I'm not really finding any online. I've quickly broken three plastic ones with standard use. They don't seem very durable at all. Or if anyone has any creative ways to mount your ulock? Thanks!

    Backpack or rack. Lock mounts universally suck.

    Velcro strips can be used pretty effectively and they won't snap like the plastic holders do under repeated stress.

    Does anybody still use u-locks? How quaint.......

    Seriously, I thought everybody stopped using them about 15 years ago, when the news showed that all you need to open the lock was a Bic pen refill.

    They changed the key/lock design about 14 years ago.
