What are the different types of bike and scooter locks?
There are many types of e-scooter and e-bike locks on the market. Where some locks correspond more to a specific type of vehicle, others are rather versatile and can be used for any purpose. Weebot presents different models of locks:
Cable or chain locks
Cable locks offer very affordable prices. They are both easy to transport and easy to install on your two wheels. However, unlike other lock models, it does have a number of weaknesses. It is possible to cut this type of lock simply using pliers. This type of lock is preferably used for a quick stop.
This type of lock is very popular with owners of electric vehicles. It is so resistant that to overcome it, it would be necessary to be able to use a grinder. Despite these advantages, this lock also has its limits. This system is often very heavy and does not install anywhere, so you will have to think carefully about where you want to place your electric vehicle.
Folding locks are a very good alternative. They are both easy to transport but also very resistant. Before buying this type of lock you must find out about the model chosen because depending on the range selected, it is possible that the components are of lower quality. Note that the bindings of this system are sometimes easy to dismantle. As with other types of locks, you will need to think carefully before installing your two wheels since folding locks are really rigid.
It is a highly recommended anti-theft device by many brands of electric vehicles. Very light and ergonomic, the handcuff lock is very easy to use. Unlike U or folding locks, the handcuff lock is much more flexible. Its flexibility is far from being a weakness on the contrary! You can install your vehicle in several places without fear of theft. Handcuff locks are very robust despite their flexibility.
How to choose your bike or electric scooter lock?
Before proceeding to the choice of a lock you must take into account a certain number of criteria. Weebot tells you more.
Knowing the material of your lock is essential regardless of the type of system you plan to opt for. Indeed, some materials are more robust than others. We recommend that you choose case-hardened steel models rather than stainless steel. Although more expensive, they will be more resistant to possible disassembly or sectioning by thieves.
Homologation is a very important criterion to take into account when buying a lock. An approved lock certifies the strength and quality of the latter. In addition, a lock approved in this way is recognized as reliable by a trusted organization closely followed by fans of electric mobility. Here are some types of approvals to keep in mind:
- The SRA (or Automotive Safety and Repairs)
- The ART Foundation
- Sold Secure
- FUB (Federation of Bicycle Users)
The level of security
Most lock manufacturers submit them to a very precise scale in order to guide users towards a lock that perfectly suits their expectations. The locks at the first levels of this scale are unreliable where those at the last level resist theft for less than 10 minutes. In other words: the higher the level, the more effective the lock will be.
