Kryptonite Transit FlexFrame U-Bracket Installation – New

Kryptonite Transit FlexFrame U-Bracket Installation – New


Hi I’m Dan from Kryptonite I’m here
today to talk to you about the Transit FlexFrame U-Bracket and how to
install it on a bicycle frame. The Bracket can be purchased separately or
comes with the New York Standard U-lock, all of the Evolution Series 4 U-locks, all of the Evolution Mini U-locks and all of the KryptoLok
Series 2 U-locks. When you open the package there is going to be a few items
inside. The Bracket body with a pre-installed hex bolt for tightening, a
tugblock carrier with a nylon strap, and attached rubber shim to protect your
bike frame, a 3 millimeter hex wrench so you don’t have to buy any tools for the
installation and an instruction sheet. The Transit FlexFrame U-bracket
provides convenient U-lock transportation and mounts to multiple
locations on the bike frame. It also has 360 degree rotation for flexible fit
options and fits frame tube sizes between 25 millimeters and 80
millimeters. Before proceeding make sure that the Bracket body is in a good spot.
It shouldn’t interfere with your pedal stroke or with your use of your water
bottle from your water bottle cage. There are two methods of installation: inside
the frame and an offset method. First we’re going to go over the inside the
frame mounting method. The first thing you need to do before mounting the
bracket to the frame is to clean the area on the frame where you’re going to
put the bracket. A basic degreaser will work very well and you’ll completely
clean the area where you’re going to mount. Now is a good time to pause the
video on your computer or phone to complete this action. Now that the area has been cleaned, take
the tug block with the rubber shim attached, wrap the rubber shim around the
frame and pull it snug. The rubber shim should only wrap around until it is
about one quarter inch or six millimeters back from the metal portion
of the tug block. Make sure to remove any excess rubber shim length with a pair of
scissors. This is a good spot to pause until you finish this step. Now that the shim is cut to the correct
length, you want to make sure that the tug block is facing the correct
direction that you intend to put the body bracket. You want to feed the strap
through the tugblock and pull till snug. Now while holding the tugblock nylon
strap, take the bracket body and push it onto the tugblock. Now take the three
millimeter hex wrench and insert it into the Bracket center long side in and
rotate the hex bolt clockwise until tightened, be sure not to crank the bolt
down too tight as it can damage with some thin walled, thin steel, and carbon fiber
frames. Now that the bracket is installed make sure it’s pretty snug by grabbing
the bracket body and jiggling, as you notice the bike moves but the bracket
body does not. Now it’s time to take your U-lock and slide it into the bracket.
Then slide the U-lock into the bracket body you’ll hear a click which
means the lock is secured, press the grey button, and lift the lock out to release.
You may need to adjust the bracket body to make sure it’s straight. Now I’m going
to go over the offset mounting method first loosen the bracket on the frame
and rotate the bracket around. With the three millimeter hex wrench loosen the
spline on the U-lock and slide the U-lock into the bracket. Find a position
that is comfortable for you, remove the lock,
tighten the spline on the U-lock, tighten the bracket using the three millimeter
wrench, return the U-lock to the Bracket. Ensure
that the lock is out of the way of the pedal stroke. You’ll also need to get on
the bike and check your pedal stroke to make sure that the bracket and the lock
are not interfering with your legs. As a final step once you have the Transit
FlexFrame Bracket safely secure is to remove the excess nylon strap with
scissors. A lighter or hairdryer can be used on the frayed end of the nylon
strap for a more professional look. So there you have it, the kryptonite Transit
FlexFrame U-Bracket, a great accessory to help you transport your U-lock. Also
available is the Kryptonite Transit FlexFrame C-Bracket which isn’t sold
separately but comes with the following cables. The installation process is the same,
it’s just a smaller bracket. For more information on the installation process,

Kryptonite today I’d like to talk a little bit about proper lock-up using a
chain. The chain we want to highlight is the KryptoLok Series 2 Integrated
Chain.
