    Just got the email, in it they say:

    "To exchange your Kryptonite lock: Put your lock(s) and at least 1
    working key into a box."

    Do they mean the whole lock or just the cross-bar?

    Thanks,

    Kyle

    I sent the whole lock, and got an upgraded complete lock in return.

    Neither their website nor their shipping instructions are explicit
    about this, but the experience has been that they're shipping the
    whole lock with the U regardless of whether you return the old U or
    not. Given that the U on mine is a little bent anyway, I just packed
    the whole thing when I got my shipping label via email this morning.
    If I get the same U back, it'll still work; if I get a complete new
    lock, that's good too.

    It must be the season. I just got mine last night too -- after at least 4
    months.

    I think they just recently got the capacity ramped up to where they
    could really handle the volume of requests. They appear to have hired
    a contractor to accept the returns and ship the replacements. The
    shipping label for my return is going to a packaging specialist,
    rather than to one of Kryptomite's facilities. That's a common way to
    do something like this, but getting the production in place, and the
    fulfillment contract arranged, doesn't happen overnight. Once they
    got those details covered, the logjam could be cleared pretty
    quickly...and it looks like that's what's taking place, as the lead
    time for me was only about a month. I got my shipping label today.

    I sent the whole thing, and got back a complete new lock. It was
    wrapped in a sealed plastic bag, so I doubt that they are even set up
    to send only a new crossbar.

    Are they replacing like with like? For example, I have one of the "lite"
    models, which I can carry in a jersey pocket if I really have to. I hope they
    don't give me back a 3 LB boat anchor.

    I sent in two locks: an Evo 2000 Mini and an EvoLite. I received in
    exchange an Evo 2000 Mini and a KryptoLok (a larger, heavier lock).
    The EvoLite isn't listed on their web page anymore, so one presumes
    it's no longer in production.
