What is that ?
The PIT stopper is a small stainless steel cone with an internal thread (important for opening) that is mounted in the hexagon socket opening of the screw on the bike. This blocks access with standard Allen keys. The unlocking screw with a special thread (included in the set) is required for opening/removing.
2 PIT Stopper, 1 removal screw
Stainless steel Pit Stopper with internal thread. Removal screw.
Anti-theft device for all bicycle components fastened with standardized hexagon socket screws. To position it, it is best to tap the narrower side (conical shape) into the hexagon socket hole with a rubber mallet. Due to this shape, it "widens" in the hexagon socket hole of the screw and cannot be removed again without the associated unlocking screw, which has a special thread. To remove the pit stopper, screw the unlocking screw into the pit stopper until it pulls it out like a bottle cork. The hexagon socket hole and the PIT stopper remain unharmed.
The Pit Stopper can be used as often as desired.
Our PIT stoppers fit the standard ISO/DIN standardized screws.They are 2.8mm high.
Available for the following sizes of standard hexagon socket heads (wrench size): M5, M6 and M8
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.
