Anyone using these? How do they work for you?
Do they still leave it easy to remove the wheel for replacing flats?
I've used both Pinhead and Pitlock and find the Pitlock to be a much better designed product and easier to use. Changing a flat with Pitlocks is very easy, all you do is loosen the nut with a coded socket. Pinhead provides you with a coded key which tends to slip.
My Pinhead skewers rusted. My Pitlock haven't. Pitlock also provides you with to keys while Pinhead only gives you one.
Pitlock is available here.
And there are some good photos of them here.

Indeed Ziemas. Pitlock are definitely top-notch both in terms of design, and fabrication. The CNC-machining is second to none. I have a ton of new sets in stock, and a new order to be placed within the next week or so if there are any special requests for parts or sets.
