Secure, practical theft protection for bikes: Folding locks
A practical, elegant solution to keep your bike safely locked up and is also easy to transport. That doesn't exist? Of course it does! Folding locks can, as the name suggests, be folded down quite small to save space, but also offers fantastic protection against bike thieves. Folding bike locks have joints that turn in various different directions and a correspondingly large pack width. A folding lock can be used to securely attach your bikes to railings, trees, lampposts or sturdy fences. These cannot be removed, so their theft protection is outstanding. The lock can be compactly folded for transport and will always find space in your bike backpack, the bike bag or case. Folding locks come in different lengths. High quality models like the ones by Trelock have a holder that can be tightly secured to the frame. This ensures the lock never disturbs you while you ride and is always on hand when you need it.
Versatile in its use thanks to its construction
Folding locks are perfect for everyday as well as casual use and also provide fantastic security like U locks, chain locks and cable locks. The latter two are better for attachment to larger objects. Any model would reach its limit when attaching a bike to a 300 year old tree. In cases like this, a combination of different types of locks is a great solution, and the use of various lock systems makes it harder work for thieves to get their hands on your bike! A high quality folding lock comes at a price. The alternative - i.e. getting back to where you parked your bike and it is no longer there - is something you should definitely think about when shopping. Particularly because quality is tightly linked to security. Bolt cutters will get damaged on the metal of any folding lock and higher quality locking systems are also harder to crack.
