BIKE LOCK MUDGUARD | Based on extensive research, MEERKAT combines rear wheel immobiliser, front wheel/frame lock and seat lock into an unobtrusive anti-theft device
MEERKAT replaces the mudguard with a seatlock, rear wheel immobilizer and wire lock for securing the front wheel andframe into a convenient, unobtrusive anti-theft device
From the ground up MEERKAT was designed tofit most bike frames. There was also a drive to make its aesthetic as neutralas possible to allow it to match any bike frame
1.Unlock seat lock with Key fob 2.Rotate up, lock down over seat 3.Unlock wheellock, rotate down, lock through wheel 4.Release wire lock 5.Lock front wheeland frame to post
Combining the beacon concept with animmobilizer lock was the next development. Illustrator was used to createnumerous concepts based on tall & short beacon configurations
One concept explored making a lock whichalso acts as a beacon to passersby, creating a subconscious neighbourhood watcheffect, making thieves nervous about approaching it
Preventing bike theft is almost impossible.However, locking your bike amongst others in a busy area and making it standout as the least attractive to steal is good start
