I spend a LOT of time searching the Web for a lock box with a cable that I could use for keeping a few valuables locked with my bicycle for short periods of time. My situation is that I sometimes like to bike to areas a few miles from my house to go running on trails or other areas that are more interesting than my local streets, and I like to take my wallet and cell phone with me in case I need them, but I do not want to run with them. A figured a box like this was the perfect solution. A lot of the products a reviewed online (and a few in a local store) seemed flimsy and easily broken into. But not this box. You would need some heavy-duty tools to crack into it, so I feel relatively secure about leaving my valuables in the box for short periods. I imagine that a serious thief could cut the cable with a strong enough pair of cable cutters, so I would not depend on the box if I left my bike in a shady area on a regular basis where someone might notice it and eventually show up to cut the cable. Outside of that scenario, the box suits my needs perfectly. It would also be good for keeping a few small valuables locked in a hotel room, if I cared about that. There was only one other box I found that seemed to be more highly rated, but it is no longer available. So this is the best product out there, and it is even less expensive than similar products that do not seem to match its quality.
