Thing is, lock n roll (afaik
) uses Gravity to secure the lever,
they open easily when bike is upside down..
The other 2 use a 'funny' wrench fitting..
They are made for certain components, some of which are on folding bikes..
not made 'for' them..
NB some folding bike hubs, for the front wheel are 24mm shorter,
so 100mm skewers have to be threaded down the shaft further, then cutdown.
Now if the folding bike company were to make those for sort of pieces their bikes,
that would be different.
But they may consider folding it and taking it in with you, as sufficient security..
Fwiw, i fit allen bolt skewers on my bike friday Pocket Llama,
which in-spite of their 20" wheels use common 100 and 135mm wide hubs.
