Pitlock Wheel Skewer (Front or Rear) and Seatpost Skewer

(17 customer reviews)


Slightly less popular than Pitlock’s similar set with a locking topcap, this product is well-suited to cyclists with fixed-gear setups, or users who have horizontal dropouts in the rear. For fixed gear setups using a solid axle nut, we recommend purchasing a solid axle nut set for complete security. For help measuring your bike for Pitlocks, please see our measurement guide.

Set01 comes complete with all the necessary components for installation: two 5mm skewers, two locking mechanisms, and up to two keys. Available colors are silver and black.

See below for additional product and sizing specifications.

SKU: P010000 Category:


If your fork has a threadless steertube, we highly recommend that you consider a SET01 GA, which includes Pitlock’s locking topcap. The ahead locking topcap locks your fork to your frame to keep thieves from walking away with your fork and the front wheel with it.

The locking wheel skewers use the well-regarded Pitlock locking mechanism to ensure that commuter and high-end wheelsets alike stay on your bike instead of in a thief’s hands. Rest assured that your seat will stay where it is with Pitlock’s locking seatpost skewer. Using the same locking mechanism as the Pitlock wheel skewers, it carefully protects your seat from would-be thieves.

All Pitlock parts (with exception of the ahead lock) are cold-forged and CNC machined from high-grade stainless steel. The ahead lock uses the same steel for the bolt, but to save weight the topcap itself is machined in aluminum.

Worried about losing your Pitlock keys, or needing to change a tire on the road? Purchase a keychain tool and never be without your Pitkey again.

Additional notes:

  • The 240mm “joker” skewers are fully threaded, and will need to be cut to length. Cutting skewers is a fairly common need, and only requires a hacksaw or Dremel tool.
  • Each skewer is actually 10MM longer than the length shown. This is to account for the locking mechanism, which requires 10MM of space.

    I love the design of the product. It will defiantly deter a thief away from your bike and move to the next. Equally important is the customer service that I received. I called and emailed on a number of occasions to understand thing and make sure I was getting the proper product. The customer Service was excellent and response times are extremely quick. I would definitely recommend this product and do business with again.

    Thank you for your excellent product an exceptional customer support!

    I was a bit worried that the wheel skewer would be too thin for my fatbike as my original skewer was a bit thicker, but after a ride (part on the road and part off-road), it seems that it holds correctly. I like the mecanism which is very dissuasive.

    The skewers were great. But the key did not fit. Fortunately I had a couple of keys from a previous order that did work. I received a replacement order but it was an order meant for someone else. On a positive note, I am impressed by how fast you respond to questions and ship out items.

    Easy installation. The youtube video was helpful. The only thing that wasn’t mentioned in the video was the little rubber ring. I wasn’t sure if it was needed or was only used for shipping.

    I followed the guidelines for measuring for my front wheel skewer (removed the wheel, measured the outside of the forks at 120 mm). I ordered the standard 120 mm skewer & it’s just a tad too short. I called to see what was the best way to handle an exchange, & no one has called me back. I read the exchange/return policy & at that point figured it was easier & quicker & not that much more expensive just to order the next longest skewer, which is what I did. The seat skewer work just fine.
