General Cycling Discussion - Fun new uses for a u-lock
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
Well, besides locking up your bike, what do you all do with your u-locks? I've seen some mention of self-defense in the SS/FG forum, and just the other day, I broke up a cat fight and chased the neighbor's cat with mine! Must've been quite a sight. So, any other intriguing uses for a u-lock?

I fail to see how a U lock gives you any greater ability to break up a cat fight than your hands.
More of a power surge thing...
Oooh! You could hang it on you dorm room door knob to signal to your roommate that you have a "special friend" over. That is, if you live in a dorm room, have a roommate, and ever invite over "special friends."

I once dated a girl who could lock an 'ATB' model around her waist. Really, don't ask.

They have been used by protestors/demonstrators to fasten themselves to objects; usually by locking around the neck....

...pull hard enough on the feet and they'll move with nary a peep.
