Pitlocks on belt drive

Am I right in guessing that the rear wheel of my belt drive is incompatible with pitlocks? That looks like a horizontal dropout to me.

Pitlock does sell them so I would assume they should work just fine. You might double check with the manufacturers but I don't see why not if properly tightened.

If you lock your bike using the U-lock through the rear wheel, is there that much need for at Pitlock?

Given the design of that rear end, if someone really wanted the rear wheel, they would probably want the whole bike, and it needs tools even with out the Pitlock, and knowledge of how to undo it. (It does look like a nice bike)
