padlock storage

hey all,

i was about to get a new lock for a bike and was concernec about storing the thing when i had what might just be my one worthwhile thought per decade.

if one was to purchase a d-bolt or whatever you call the solid u with a straight bar across the opening (see attached pic - if it worked) would it be possible for one to secure it by 2 velcro straps underneath one's rear rack? even if it hung a little bit low the only point of concern would be the far extremity as the "sides" of the lock should sit "around" the wheel.

am i being stupid or would this work?

Don't get your banter at all mate!

However if you are asking how one stores a U-bolt lock on a bike with a pannier rack, then the easiest way is to drop it down the side of the rack, making sure it sits on the outside of the stays. Dead simple.
