HexLox anything – One product in all variants
With HexLox, you can protect various bicycle components. Saddles, seat posts, front and rear wheels, cranks or pedals – all of these components are different in terms of size, dimension and design. But HexLox works on the principle of “HexLox anything”, and can lock anything.
HexLox in various diameters
HexLox products are available in various sizes, dependent on the diameter of the Allen screws used on the bicycle. Currently, the following sizes are available: 4mm, 5mm, 6mm, 8mm and soon also 10mm.
HexLox for magnetic or non-magnetic screws
Most bicycle screws are magnetic, but stainless steel screws or non-magnetic Allen screws are sometimes used. Hexlox has a solution for every type of screw. Before buying, it is best to test whether your bicycle screws are magnetic or non-magnetic.
Also, be aware that some stainless steel screws can be slightly magnetic – in this case the standard HexLox magnetic solution will not work. Then you have two options: Either replace the screws with magnetic ones, or get HexLox’s solution for non-magnetic screws.
Locking types for bicycle components
Quick-release skewer or standard nuts are commonly used to attach bicycle components. HexLox also has a solution for this. Quick-release skewers are often used on the wheels. The solution: security skewers, which replace existing axles with quick-release levers. The replacement axle can also be secured with a standard 5mm HexLox.
Axles with nuts (M9, M10, M3/8, …) can easily be replaced with “HexNut” security bolts with round heads. These security wheel nuts offer a safe solution for standard nuts. You need an additional 6mm HexLox to secure the HexNut.
Classic seat post clamps or quick release skewers on saddles can also be replaced and secured. This works either with a universal seat post clamp or with a special M8 stainless steel security nut and bolt. After installation, you can add a 5mm HexLox.
Securing the stem prevents thieves from making off with the handlebars, fork and front wheel. In the illustration, you can see two variants. Securing with screw B is already sufficient. Variant A only works on magnetic screws. If the screw protrudes too far from the stem, in case of doubt, it can be replaced by a round head bolt.
