So I use a similar method but trap one seatstay inside the U-lock also.
+1 I also use this method for same reason. I also use Pitlocks on tires and seat. On my Tandem , I carry also carry a chain to lock both tires (no Pitlocks). Harden chain better than U lock-better than cable-better than nothing. Reverse for convenience and eased.
