About this project

WOOOOOHOOOOOOO WE DID IT!!!! WE LOVE YOU BACKERS, THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!

 Pre-Order Nutlock Here: http://LockYourNuts.com

Important note:

There are many variations of each nut & key, and we are continually making more by the day. Additionally, every set is randomly packaged. All these means it's incredibly difficult for a thief to get his hands on all the different Nutlock combinations.

"Great design, great product at a great price. Well done Mikey & Amir!" - Dave Weiner, founder of Priority Bicycles

“Bike wheel theft is major problem for all cyclists. Nutlock is a breakthrough & beautifully designed, must-have solution! I can’t wait to carry the product on our webstore and in our new Solé retail shop!" - Jonathan S., Co-Founder of Solé Bicycles

"I saw the quality as great and the innovation strong. This product definitely needs to be in stores, consumers will benefit from it." - Ulises T., Lead Mechanic of H&S Bike Store in Burbank

"As for the Nutlock, sure, why not?" - Bike Snob NYC

"Bike wheel theft is a serious threat to any bike. Nutlock is a smart and sleek solution”– Johan B., Founder of Free Bike Project

“This is a really innovative product that can protect your investment! Happy to support Nutlock" - Mehdi F., co-founder of State Bicycle Co.

           

Nutlock replaces your existing fasteners (hex-nuts or quick release skewers) with custom engineered ones that can only be removed with the unique key that comes in your package.

 Quick release skewer replacement view:

We hit our stretch goal, and as promised, here is Nutlock Stealth Black Edition! We've included information on how to upgrade to this pledge level below.

For bikes using quick release skewers, we got you covered! Each set of 2 nuts in pictures below can be swapped out for skewers, which you'll identify in your backer survey. Not to worry.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
                      

Any thief can steal at least your bicycle wheel with just a wrench in less than 30 seconds.

                                                                                                                  

Yeah......... It sucks.

Before Nutlock, you had to carry multiple locks to secure your entire bike, like this guy. Don't be this guy.

                                                     
                                                                                   

We’re so honored to be working with State Bicycle Co. Their bikes are absolutely stunning. If you've been thinking about grabbing a new bike, now is the PERFECT time. Not only are we offering them at a discount, but each bike comes with a full Nutlock set for both wheels PLUS a free t-shirt. Check out http://statebicycle.com, they have some beautiful bikes up there.

Here’s some of our favorites:

Risks and challenges

We have taken extreme measures to minimize our delivery risk by taking the following precautions:

1) Deep, detailed vetting process interviewing over 150 manufacturers before finding the right manufacturing partner.

2) Assuring our manufacturer has an obsession with creating high quality products.

3) Choosing a manufacturer with existing manufacturing experience in the cycling space.

4) Having no language barrier between us and our manufacturer.

5) Creating a detailed, step-by-step quality control process for our manufacturer to use. Every single unit made has to go through this process and be approved for delivery.

6) Create a personal relationship with our manufacturer - we've met our manufacturing plant's upper management team and even took them out to a fancy shmancy dinner before signing our contract with them.

All that being said, there can always be unexpected issues that arise through the manufacturing process. For example, one hesitation that we have is our manufacturer being able to organize all the different nut:key variations properly, so we are going the extra mile to assure this is done correctly.

Our vow to our backers (aka family) is to keep you updated consistently throughout the entire process and to be incredibly transparent every step of the way.

FAQ

  • Absolutely. Nutlock will only protect the wheels of your bicycle. Once it's installed, you will only need to carry a U-lock to secure your entire bike.

    Last updated:
  • Yes! There are variations! Additionally, we're working on more and more variations of Nutlock by the day to provide enhanced protection, making it practically impossible for a thief to get his hands on all the Nutlock keys.

    Last updated:
  • No. Nutlock installs once, and never needs to be touched unless the rider wants to remove their wheels.

    Last updated:
  • You better believe it. Over 50% of active cyclists will have their bikes stolen. This is even worse for bike wheels as a thief can steal wheels in less than 30 seconds using just a wrench. Worst of all, it costs $100+ to replace just a wheel on average.

    Last updated:
  • Most thieves are lazy! The goal of a lock is to deter as much as possible. With Nutlock deterring every hand theft-tool we could find, you're in great hands - a thief will most likely turn to the poorly locked bike right next to yours. That being said, we can't say Nutlock will keep your bike absolutely secured and protected every single day from every tool for the rest of your life.

    Last updated:
  • Nutlock is crafted out of high-end, corrosion resistant steel, imported from Germany.

    Last updated:
  • Yes - we've already reached out to Dan Bilzerian to help us test this.

    Last updated:
  • Most probably - Nutlock will fit a 9mm x 1.0, 3/8in x 26, 10mm x 1.0 axle. Or replace any front/rear 5mm quick release skewer. We will send out a survey for you to mark your bike's wheel size before shipping out Nutlock.

    Last updated:
  • If you share the project on social media with hashtag "#LockYourNuts", we will be providing a second free key with your package! So put one on your keychain and the other one in your secret box next to your diary. (If we hit our stretch goal, which is TBD). Also, you should record the code on the key somewhere in your phone. If you lose both, don't freak out - we got you. Just email us your code, and will make sure it matches your name and address on record. Afterwards, we will send you your replacement!
