The Foolproof Lock

My bike got stolen! Benn there, done that; so the focus has to be on how do we stop these bicycle thieves from getting creative at picking locks? Simple, let’s make it a foolproof locking system. Which is why the Saddle Lock looks to be a superb solution. You can quickly lock the bike by pushing back the seat into the locking position and make a quick stop to get your coffee.

Saddle Lock provides a way to quickly lock the rear wheel without the need for additional locking accessories. The seat post swings down around the main frame when a button is pushed. The saddle features a cut-away shape that allows it to sit over the rear wheel. A combination lock allows the release of a special alloy rotating lock that extends from one end of the saddle to the other, securing its connection to the wheel.

Saddle Lock is a 2012 red dot award: design concept winner.

Designers: Lee Sang Hwa, Kim Jin Ho & Yeo Min Gu
