    Strengths:    Makes your wheels very hard to steal

    Weaknesses:    Made from the cheapest materials possible. I liked having them for a year but they just always feel like I'm about to strip them when I tighten up. Also, just the other day I was taking my front wheel off to re-pack the hub and the triangular piece which the wrench fits into snapped clean off- very weak forge work!

    Bottom Line:   
    This product is cheap, not worth the price. You're better off getting a well-made set of Allan-key skewer.

    Strengths:    Makes it a little bit harder to steel your wheels, no hook to catch on branches, you need an Allen key to take wheels off

    Weaknesses:    cheap build weak threads in the nut

    Bottom Line:   
    stay away from these pieces of junk, if you just think about getting the bolts tighter than a light snug, the treads will strip.

    Strengths:    Harder to steal than a Quick release, it's cheap

    Weaknesses:    The skewer rod is made out o cheap metal, so the threads strip very easily. It's cheaply made

    Bottom Line:   
    This product is an excellent idea, it simplifies bike lock up. Delta however, executed it with the cheapest materials possible. I stripped the rear axle as I was first installing it. It was just beginning to tighten up, so I know I didn't over tighten it. The front one held up a little better. I was able to change flats at least twice before it's threads gave up. I'm gonna give PinHead locking skewers a try instead.
