...are bull$hit.

Speaking only of the cable lock types for the hitch racks right now... I lost the keys to mine and defeated it in about 1 second.

They don't keep your bikes safe.

I don't want to go into too many details since I'll get a bunch of people going "oh great, tell the whole world how to steal my bikes!" but do yourself a favor and use a U-lock and/or cable that is made by a lock manufacturer and comes with some sort of guarantee, and lock it directly to the chain loop on your hitch.

I understand those can still be cut, and a hitch can be removed (in no timely manner) but it's enough of an improvement to matter.

Anything with cheesy little lock cores like the rack manufacturers use is for stopping honest people- I have no illusion it would take somebody more than 30 seconds to take my bike off my rack, and that's with the car alarm armed and not being tripped.
