This torsion test rig has been developed with an engineering consultant and Swansea University College of Engineering - Prof Stephen Brown (Head of Engineering), Prof Nick Lavery and Dr Adam Philo.
In this test we compare a Litelok Flexi-U Silver against a more traditional U lock (also Silver rated).
It’s almost impossible to break a Litelok through twisting it with a tool like a crowbar or tire iron. In fact it could cause serious injury to anyone who tries. As you turn the crowbar or tire iron in a Litelok, energy builds up within the tensioned Boaflexicore material which coils and will spring back and unwind rather violently if you let go.
