The JSB Hublock was tested by Sold Secure gaining the Gold Award, the highest award available.
Sold Secure tests cover only methods used by "Opportunist Thieves", and includes angle grinders, drilling, hammering, chiselling, freezing, removal sockets and specialised removal tools etc., available to automotive engineers and tyre fitters. They do not include oxyacetylene cutting gear commonly used by "Professional Thieves".
To resist these more extreme methods we carried out our own tests, with professional engineers using a range of heavy industrial equipment in workshop conditions and with no time restrictions.
For workshop tests the JSB Hublock was bolted to an Alko hub assembly mounted on a suitable jig.
YOU TUBE Workshop testing of the JSB HUBLOCK
Part 1 - The initial burning where the operator tried to melt the security bolts to remove the Hublock.
As soon as the gas torch was removed the molten metal cooled, effectively welding the Hublock to the brake housing.
The fixings of the security bolts are at the very base of the Hublock giving no access for cutting.
The operator then attempted to access the fixings by melting the complete Hublock disc.
After ten minutes of cutting the operator stopped and confirmed it would be impossible to remove the Hublock and our tests were proved successful.
