The Quality Mark
How the Quality Mark works
Only locks for two wheelers that meet the set requirements can be awarded the Quality Mark. An approval number of 4 digits will then be issued. The locks are divided into different categories such as chain locks and ring locks. In addition, we work with a star system. The more stars a lock has, the higher its preventive value and the better it protects against theft. A lock with five stars has the most preventive value.
Which lock should I use for my two-wheeler? In general, the following advice applies:
- 1 star is minimum security (“take away security”)
- 2 stars for bicycles
- 3 stars for mopeds and mopeds
- 4 stars for motorcycles (on the road)
- 5 stars for motorcycles (parked at home)
The list of approved locks
On this website you can look up whether a lock has been approved and if so, how many stars it has. However, the approval may have been revoked. In that case, this is clearly stated on the lock, also indicating when the approval was revoked. This can be important information for your insurance because the lock you used had to be approved at the time you took out the insurance!
