    Comments about Halo Components Halo Hex Key Skewers:

    Installed these on a 3x9 mountain bike used exclusively for commuting on tarmac 6 months ago. They looked great on the bike. Unfortunately I took the rear wheel off to fix a flat. When I went to reinstall the wheel the hex bolt that serves as the axle sheared. Nothing was over-torqued and I was only applying moderate pressure to the hex wrench at the time. Luckily I had a spare 135mm QR handy or it would have been a long walk.

    Comments about Halo Components Halo Hex Key Skewers:

    These are a good basic deterrent if you don't live in a big city or if you're just leaving your bike for a few minutes while you run in to a store. I would not expect them to protect your wheels in NYC or San Francisco. The normal hex key wouldn't deter a real thief, but it's more than nothing. I got the white ones and my cycle-snob roommate immediately said they're the nicest-looking part on my beater Stump Jumper.

      Comments about Halo Components Halo Hex Key Skewers:

      This product exceeded my expectations. Nice Shiny finish, easy to install, and keeps your wheels a little safer than regular QRs (reason why I bought these in the first place). If you live on a big city like NY, these will probably not work for you keeping your wheels safe, but here in Tulsa, OK, these just prevents theft temptation when going to grocery store and running errands.

      The tabs that keeps the opposite side of the Hex nut from turning are AWESOME! I find these easier to use and install than regular lever QRs.

      I will definitely recommend these to my friends and already installed on both my bikes.

        Have used these on two mountain bikes I use around town and do not want to worry about stolen wheels. Yes, an allen wrench is all that's needed, but I'm not sporting expensive wheels. Combined with the Woodsman seatpost clamp, I'm set.

        Good idea...but not strong enough for SS

        Comments about Halo Components Halo Hex Key Skewers:

        I wanted something to add another layer of security to my singlespeed commuter and thought these would do the trick.

        The cromo shafts were noticably less burly than the standard QR's on my Fulcrum wheels. After installing the rear wheel would slip without much leverage at all.
        I am going to save them for a geared bike down the road.

            I have bought two sets of these and they are great. Lightweight and strong, adds a little bit of theft deterence and looks better than quick release skewers to me.

            Surprisingly tough skewers, they look sort of thin, but being cro-moly they are really durable. Really easy to use, and one more layer of security for mind's sake.
