Allen skewers are OK, for vertical dropouts, but the eccentric with the lever
may be needed on a horizontal dropout, so the wheel won't slip.

I use the Abus Steel-o-chain, lock a lot, now, and the Abus link folding lock
is sure easier to carry than a U lock, because its 6 links fold.
and includes a frame mounting pouch.

have Onguard's armored cable lock , Brompton folding bike got it.
cable is inside the segmented tube, for armor, to be flexible.

Colleges are theft places for bikes,
park next to the fancier bike, with the lesser lock. good Luck
