PlantLock is a clever new idea for securing bicycles in urban areas. Basically a metal planter with secure rails for the locks. The planter weighs 75 kg when fully planted up, and the rails are made from case hardened Boron steel, which means you’re only going to scratch them with a set of bolt cutters. Obviously you don’t want to stick your £3000 Acme Carbon Fiber Racer out there over night (just in case, eh?) but it does look like a great way to pretty up the front space while keeping muddy mountain bike commuters out of your hallway. Each planter takes two bicycles. £135.00.
PlantLock accommodates most bicycle types on the market. Bicycle frame and both wheels can be secured to the bar with the owner’s existing locks – ideally two quality locks of different types, as recommended by SoldSecure. PlantLock requires minimum maintenance, being made from robust, durable materials. The locking bar is made from boron steel, case-hardened and tempered, to achieve robustness beyond most commercially available bicycle locks. Each PlantLock accommodates 2 bicycles, and is available in a range of subtle colours.
