Locking front skewer (thru axle)... help!

Hello,

I have a cyclocross KTM CXA to which I would like to install a locking system for my wheels. Pitlocks look like a good and serious locking system.
The back wheel has a standard quick release axle. The front 100/15 thru axle however looks quite original. None of the pitlock axle seem to be the right fit (TA measurements : total length (without head) = 133mm, installation width (with threading) = 119mm, threading = 10 mm). The hub is a Shimano Deore M618 - 100/15 TA CL.
(sorry... unable to give the corresponding pitlock url as I am a newbie here)

Are there good adaptors from 15mm to standard axle ?

Any help would be really appreciated! Many thanks!
Sam

never touch them.. ask your LBS.

guess: you remove the handle once you have screwed in the thru axle, like you did for the picture.

I thought of it, but you could still use big pliers on the star-like pattern to unscrew the axle.
I actually found that one of the pitlock axle is compatible though it says it's for another fork. Happy me! =D
