'Armlock' by Rodd a residential cycle-security solution developed as part of the Home Office’s Design&Technology Alliance Against Crime. A programme which brought together industry, the public sector, designers and crime prevention experts to create design-led ideas for crime proofing products.
Most cyclists lock their bikes when leaving them on the street, however the same can not be said when they return home – research shows that more than half of bikes are not locked when stolen from in or around a residence.
Armlock is a wall mounted solution, whose lock mechanism is triggered simply by the weight of the bike. Developed from research insight to prototype by the team at Rodd in just four weeks.
We are now actively looking for a venture partner to bring it to market.
