Cycles Stand To Be More Secure With Interlock

A Leamington inventor has come up with a new secure way to keep bicycles safe and tidy.

InterlockFed up with having nowhere to put his bicycle except attaching it to a plastic drainpipe, Nicolas Davies came up with a lock made of 4mm thick steel.

It can be bolted to the ground or concreted in. Mr Davies is now hoping to be able to sell these to cyclists with similar problems.

He said that the Interlock device is built so a cycle lock can be fitted to it.

Because it is securely attached to the ground and would involve more work for a thief to undo it, it will act as a secure deterrent against crime.

Mr Davies said:

“The more time it takes to get the cycle out, the more risk a thief has to take, and they don’t like that.

"This lock also keeps your cycle neat and tidy at all times.”

Mr Davies has come up with several different models, including one that can be wall-mounted, and one that takes two cycles.

He said he is currently looking for sponsorship to get the Interlock manufactured and marketed. More information from him by emailing
