Bike locks are essential when it comes to keeping your bicycle in your possession. Since a bike is light, expensive, and has wheels, they are the perfect item to steel. A bike lock will prevent your bike from getting stolen, or at least make it extremely difficult. A bike lock is typically a standalone item because they have one job to do and they do it well, but there are several lock accessories out there to help in the mission of protecting your bike.
The main type of lock accessory is a mount. These mounts can be used to attach your lock to your bike for easy transportation and organization. Some lock mounts are specific to a certain lock, so if you buy a separate mount, make sure it matches the lock you own. Some mounts just feature an elastic band and can attach to just about any lock, or anything else for that matter. Most locks come with a mount when you buy them but those mounts sometimes get lost or fall apart from use.
Anchors are another type of lock accessory. An anchor typical contains a metal loop that you can permanently attach to a floor or wall. This provides you with a location to attach your bike lock to when securing your bike. A truck bed is also a common place to have an anchor installed so you can lock your bike with a cable lock when you have it in the back of the truck.
When it comes to bike security, bike locks do the hard work of protecting your bike from criminals. Lock accessories are there to help in that endeavor and make lock usage easier on you.
