About

Traditional locks are time-consuming and easy to forget and lose. People have to store their locks around the frame of their bikes, attach them to carriers, or throw them in their backpacks. Then they have to find and use their key or combo to unlock it, un-wrap or detach it, re-wrap or attach the lock around something secure, and then lock it all over again. 

With all the fuss it's no surprise that the number one reason bikes are stolen is because they are simply left unlocked. Statistically, the number one location for bike theft in the United States is outside of convenience stores. People don't like going through the whole locking process, especially when they're just stepping away for a couple minutes.  

The Pedal Lock is an efficient solution to this dilemma. With the Pedal Lock you simply pull it out and lock it up. That's when the alarm sets. Two steps and done. After you are finished, you just unlock it and it zips back in automatically. One step and done.

The Pedal Lock is currently made with a 33 inch long, 2.4 MM thick galvanized steel aircraft cable with our rubberized cut and kink resistant coating. Although cables like this are already being used by other lock makers, ours is the first and only retractable lock conveniently housed inside the pedal.

To push even further we had our team of engineers add a high decibel alarm. Now If anybody tampers with your lock or bike the loud alarm will sound immediately. 

Replace your ordinary pedal with a Pedal Lock and you will never have to worry about losing or forgetting your lock again. Set your easy to remember combination as many times as you like.

The Pedal Lock is kid tested and parent approved. Children love how the Pedal Lock zips in and out. Locking their bike is fun now. Children can't forget it, lose it, or wait to use it!

In cities where experts recommend multiple lock combinations, the Pedal Lock is the perfect security addition when coupled with other locks. If a thief attempts to cut the Pedal Lock cable first, the alarm will sound and the thief will likely take off. If the thief starts by trying to cut the other lock first, the jostling of the bike will likely trigger the Pedal Lock’s alarm too.

Together with our engineers, manufacturer, and development team, we have fine tuned the Pedal Lock and the final production version is amazing! We have added several improvements. 

Our goal is to put Pedal Locks on bicycles all over the world, and ultimately make them standard on bikes like car alarms on cars. 

Our manufacturers are ready to go, but we need your help to move forward with the tooling and molds. Your support will bring the Pedal Lock to the world!

We have several patents already and we have filed for even more. We have come a long way and we will continue to evolve with technology.

Thanks for checking us out. Please back us today!  

Risks and challenges

Our anticipated delivery date is March 2016. We believe that to be a realistic timeline. If under any circumstances the timing changes, we will notify our backers immediately and keep them in the loop throughout the whole process.
