Thefts, the main problem

Undoubtedly, one of the greatest “Achilles heel” of the bike is its safety. Any carelessness can be very expensive if any time we park our bicycle we do not use a good anti-theft system, like claims and lockers.

Nothing is fool-proof but clearly the stronger the material on such anti-theft systems is, the harder  even with a simple shears or sharp pliers to be cut by the thieves will be.

In any case, the “poor sister” of this story are usually the wheels. It is not uncommon to see the stark image of a bicycle tied down to any safe street furniture, but without a wheel or without the two, because they were without securing with a padlock. Are fully accessible and, in seconds, they are separated from the bike and into the hands of the thief.

Sometimes, we leave our bike secured, thinking we have a hard lock but we do not use it properly, perhaps because it does not cover everything we need due to its rigidity or its length What we can see in these images, can happen: we will be left without a bicycle.

With our JANBOLOCK lock for wheels, these images will go down in history. JANBOLOCK prevents theft of the wheels because it locks the wheels to the frame in an efficient and simple manner. Thus, we have the whole bike secured. Furthermore, handling and size of JANBOLOCK padlock lets you to transport it easily. We advise you to use properly a good traditional padlock and also our JANBOLOCK padlock. The combination of both increases security against theft.

There are situations where we leave the bike nearby: sitting in park, go to buy bread, greet an acquaintance in the street … it is a nuisance to find a place to tie the bike, unroll the string to pass it through differents parts. However, in a few seconds we can lock the wheels and our bike with our JANBOLOCK padlock, and thus preventanyone from can taking it.
