Lobster Lock says it can solve that issue for good, by delivering the unbreakable bike lock. Not only is it thief-proof almost entirely, but it’s also the world’s first and only attached, folding lock, which means that you won’t ever have to worry about carrying that heavy U-lock with you. Or forgetting about it altogether.
Lobster Lock isn’t even that heavy, though it’s solid. Made of heat-treated hardened steel, it weighs 2.8 pounds (1.3 kg) and fastens to the down or seat tube, where the bike bottle cage bosses are. You lock in the screws and then you can mount the bottle cage on top of the lock.
When it’s time to park the bike, open the claws of the lock and lock it through the front wheel (if it’s on the down tube). Even if a thief comes and unscrews the base of the lock from the bike, they still won’t be able to take the bike because the lock forms a closed loop.
“Coming back to an unscrewed Lobster Lock would certainly be annoying, but we’ll take that over a stolen bike every time,” Lobster Lock says. Unless, of course, the thief chooses to saw his way to your bike, in which case absolutely no lock in the world could deter him.
Priced at $74.99, the Lobster Lock is definitely pricier than other rigid steel bike locks, but then again, it’s expected from a world first.
