About this project

Locking your lights is now as simple as locking your bike.

Stolen bike lights suck. At best, they mean you have to buy what you already bought...again. At its worst, it can mean riding home in a dangerous situation. 

The Lemurlock's one piece design keeps your lights just as safe as your bike.
The Lemurlock's one piece design keeps your lights just as safe as your bike.

Nearly one third of all bicycle fatalities occur at night, even though this accounts for only 12.4% of all riding (NHTSA 2010).

Meet Lemurlock: the first one-piece cable lock/bike lights that keep your lights just as safe as your bike. Lemurlock also takes the place of your current cable lock, so you're not only locking your lights--you're also locking your bike with the same satisfying click!

All About the Lock

  • Barrel key lock with a push-button locking feature
  • Movable housing that slides along the length of the cable for placement flexibility (So you can secure the lock to the rack as tightly or as loosely as you like.)
  • 9mm coiled steel cable (She's strong!)
  • IPX6 waterproof
  • The Best Part? Lemurlock takes the place of your current cable lock, so you're not only locking your lights--you're also locking your bike with the same, satisfying click!

As seen on:

 
 

Why Lock Your Lights? Because they're expensive and easy to steal. So if you can lock them up when you are already locking your bike, why not do it?  (Just ask these folks!)

How do the lights attach/detach? 

Each Lemurlock will ship with two separate mounting brackets--one for each light. Through the use of four hex screws, you can easily attach one to your bike's handlebars, and the other to the seatpost, where they'll serve as a semi-permanent clip you simply slide your lights in and out of. All of this is done with the push of a release tab. Not enough room on your seatpost? We've got you covered--a silicon band can also be used to attach your Lemurlock taillight to the rails on your seat.

 What will the funds be used for?

The funds received will be put towards manufacturing Lemurlock at scale. Making final revisions, tooling, manufacturing, shipping, and packaging can all be completed once successfully backed.

Why Kickstarter?

In one word? Scale. Manufacturing one-off Lemurlocks is super expensive (like $1,200 each), and at that price, you might as well buy an actual lemur to sit on your handlebars and shine a golden flashlight for you. Raising money this way allows us to make molds that can quickly, and dependably, forge lights that will cost a fraction of their one-off price.

What it's not:

The Lemurlock is NOT a U-lock. Proper locking involves the use of both a cable lock and U-lock. Make sure to use both!

 

 

Risks and challenges

Risks and Challenges

There are several risks and challenges between Kickstarter and fulfillment:

1) Implementing final revisions:
What you see our videos and pictures is the 4th iteration prototype-- The final product will be even more refined.
2) Fulfillment: Supply chains are long and subject to change. We've made our timeline extra cushy, with the goal over under promising and over delivering, but we can't rule out hurdles or delays.

Please send any questions to info@lemurlock.com, and thanks for your support!
