Pitlock thru axles are made out of high quality aluminum and stainless steel. The aluminum is coloured by anodization, the stainless steel by physical vapour deposition.
Replace the original thru axle with the coded Pitlock thru axle to secure your bike wheels against robbery. The lock can be made compatible to any other Pitlock M5/M6 lock, such as those for the seatpost, the ahead stem or the brakes.
Also available as spare thru axle for an existing code.
Pitlock also offers the following thru axle sizes:

Not only the coded nut protects against theft but also the particularly designed spring washer. It anchors with our coded nut and locks the closure. In order to undo the system the Pit key is used. The Pit keys side panels press and turn the springs of the spring washer at the same time, a principle comparable to child safety locks on certain medicine bottles. Thanks to this principle on the one hand and to the chamfered coded nut on the other hand, pliers will not have a chance to break our system. In addition the conical security ring is pivoted so that it can not be cut by using force.
PITLOCK is made of certified, high-quality and stainless steel and 10 Nm are more than sufficient (not the case for solid axles) to stick the hub incl. the bicycles fork.
Dos and Don'ts to make it more difficult for thieves to succeed
Secure your removable bicycle parts, such as the wheels, the seat, the ahead system and the brakes with PITLOCK, so that the valuable individual parts are also secured against theft.
We would be happy to receive additional hints from you.
The PITLOCK standard axles replace customary quick releases and are suitable for most bicycles. Racing bikes are special and not a standard. Since race bikes are thinner it results that the axles protrude unfortunately.
Even though we offer a broad range of several axle lengths, we are not able to cover all sizes. At best you measure the axle first, or you contact us for our advice.
The axle thread can only be shortened with the help of a hacksaw.
Attention: Please be very careful when shortening the axle.
In case the axle thread protrudes the security rings for approximately 5 mm it is possible to install our elegant end caps.
