Bike Lock & Key Registration

Whilst many manufacturers offer their customers bike lock and key registration, it’s surprising how few utilise this service. 

Bike lock key registration is a smart move that’ll keep the key code to your lock safe.

By registering your code, you won’t have to buy a new lock if you misplace your keys or key code card. Instead, you’ll be able to order replacement keys using your code registered on the manufacturer’s website. 

Some bike lock manufacturers will also extend your warranty if you register your lock and keys on their website, so it’s worth doing. 

In this short guide, I’ll let you know every reputable manufacturer that offers a registration service, so you can find out if your bike lock and keys can be registered. 

And if your bike lock can’t be registered, I’ll show you what to do so that your bike lock key code is safely protected, should you ever require it. 

If you’ve come here from my replacement bike keys article, I’ll follow the steps below for the relevant manufacturer, and you’ll be good to go!

    Bike Lock & Key Registration

    I’ll admit I’ve lost many sets of bike keys during my years working in the bicycle security industry.

    Thankfully, whenever possible, I always register the keys and each lock I purchase, which means that I can get replacement keys cut as and when needed. 

    Most big bike lock brands offer lock & key registration to their customers, as it’s very easy to misplace your keys or the key code that comes with them. 

    Below, I highlight the benefits of bike lock & key registration before jumping into how you can register your lock and keys with your chosen manufacturer. 

    Benefits of Registering Your Bike Lock & Keys

    Whilst the benefits of registering your bike lock and keys vary slightly with each manufacturer, upon registration, you’ll often benefit from the following:

    • Your bike lock key code is safely stored online in case replacements are required
    • Your warranty period is lengthened from the standard warranty
    • The combination to your combination lock is safely stored online in case you forget it

    Whilst these aren’t jaw-dropping perks, you’ll thank yourself should you lose the keys to your bike lock as you won’t need to splash out on a new lock. 

    How To Register Your Bike Lock & Keys

    So you’ve just bought a new bike lock, or you’ve finally found the key code to your existing bike lock and now want to register your code online? 

    Smart move. 

    Below, I show you the easiest way to register your bike lock and key codes with every reputable bike lock manufacturer.

    Do This if the Manufacturer of Your Bike Lock Doesn’t Offer Key Registration

    If you can’t register your bike lock or key code with your manufacturers, don’t panic.

    Some bike lock manufacturers don’t allow their customers to register their key codes, which is slightly annoying, but it’s not the end of the world.

    Below I’ve put together steps that you should follow, which help to ensure you won’t lose your key code. 

    Additional Steps To Take For Bike Lock Key Registration/Security

    Even if you’ve followed the steps above and have successfully registered your bike lock & key code, I advise you to follow the steps below.

    Keeping your key code stored in more than one place will reduce the chances of losing it altogether, so follow one or more of the following steps. 

    The easiest way to ensure your bike lock key code remains safe is to take a picture of it and save it to your phone/computer.

    Wherever you save it, make sure it’s easy to find by favouriting or marking the photo to stand out from all other images saved on your device. 

    Nice and easy, password protected and saved locally. 

    Writing your bike lock key code down is another great way to ensure you don’t lose it. 

    The notes section of your mobile phone is one of the best places to store it. Make sure you title the note “Bike Lock Key Code” so that you know what the code’s for if required in the future. 

    Rather than writing it down on a scrap of paper that is likely to be binned or forgotten about, write your key code somewhere it won’t get lost, for example, in a diary or personal planner.

    Wherever you decide to write it down, make a mental note of where you kept it so that ordering replacements is easy if required in the future.

    If you got a key code card with your bike lock, keeping the physical card somewhere safe is a great idea. 

    I always advise separating the key code card from your keys when you buy a new bike lock. Otherwise, you run the risk of losing both the keys and the key code card at the same time.  

    Even if you only have one bike lock, I recommend labelling the key code card so that you know what it is. This way, in two years’ time, if you lose your bike lock keys, you’ll be able to find it and order the correct replacements.

    Just make sure that you put it somewhere safe that you’ll remember.

    Instead of carrying a key chain with all your bike lock keys attached to it, carry one of your bike lock keys and keep the rest stored safely at home. 

    You’d be surprised how many cyclists lose every key to their bike lock simply because they didn’t separate them when purchased. 

    I advise keeping spare keys in a key jar or wherever you keep your other keys, as this will guarantee they’re ready if you ever need a spare. 

    If storing your keys with others, labelling them can be a good idea. 

    Conclusion - Bike Lock & Key Registration

    I hope you’ve found your article helpful. By following the information above, you should now have managed to register your bike lock key code with your manufacturer.

    Otherwise, if the manufacturer of your bike lock doesn’t offer key or lock registration, you should save an image/make a note of your key code somewhere safe. 

    If, for some reason, you were unable to register your key code or if you have any questions, drop me a message below, and I’ll see what I can do to help!
