When You Don't Want to Carry a Lock
I often would go on bike rides with no plans to stop and not carrying a lock. In spite of that, I kept running into times where I wanted to stop for a minute - bathroom break, run in a convenience store, or just pick up that one item I needed at the store. I'd run in and hope my bike was still there when I returned.
Designed For Quick Stops
My major concern was the casual thief - the person that sees a bike and decides to ride it away -(the way most bikes are stolen). I decided to design a simple system that would be part of the bike, always there, easy to use, that prevents someone from riding our bike away.
How it Works
I designed Quick Stop™ Bike Lock as a simple solution. Lock it and our bike functions as always. Unlock it and the handlebars are disengaged from the front wheel. Simply put, the bike cannot be ridden.
Quick Lock also sends a tamper signal to your cellphone. If your bike is moved, your phone is alerted. Because your bike cannot be ridden you'll be outside before they've walked 20 steps.
With Quick Lock lightweight bike lock installed on your steering tube, it is always there and ready to be used. I love it. You will too.
An Additional Layer of Security with a Built-in Lightweight Bike Lock
Cut off a normal bike lock your bike can be ridden away, break Quick Stop and it makes the bike even more unusable! The phone alert means you'll catch them in the act before they can get away.
We all know that no bike lock completely prevents a bike from being stolen. It helps deter a theft. Most planned thefts are committed by cutting a lock. Most regular bike locks can be removed in 2 minutes or less.. Not a problem with Quick Stop. Destroy Quick Stop and your bike still cannot be ridden away. Destroy Quick Stop's tamper detector and your phone alert goes off, notifying you.
An Urban Solution
Quick Stop lightweight bike lock is the perfect solution for the urban cycler. It is great for quick runs to the store. It also fits the urban lifestyle by making keeping your bike in an apartment hallway or bedroom more convenient. Rotate the handlebars and your bike is more compact and easier to get around.
A Road Trip Helper
Quick Stop is great for the weekend cycler who tosses their bike into the car. Unlock the handlebars and fitting the bike into that SUV is much easier. Unlock Quick Stop and stacking multiple bikes on the rear bumper rack becomes easier.
Even Better Overnight Security
Combine Quick Stop lightweight bike lock with a Krypto lock and your bike is that much harder to steal. While they are sawing off your lock, your cell phone is being notified.
