The Foldylock is Lightweight and Thief-Proof

For cyclists that are looking for an alternative to their current U-shaped or coiled lock, consider the Foldylock design. The Foldylock is unlike its competitors as it is small, lightweight, and easy to transport.

U-locks are generally very clunky and heavy, making them difficult to carry around while commuting. Coiled locks are lightweight, but often not very strong—sometimes the coiled nature of the lock can tangle too easily. The Foldylock solves these issues by being both lightweight and durable. These locks unfold to be 35.5 inches long, which can then be used as a chain to secure your bicycle. The Foldylock is made up of six fiberglass-reinforced hardened steel links and is drill resistant—made with steel housing around the lock cylinder too.

The lock weighs under 3.5 lbs and is the go-to for cyclists. Check out the Foldylock on Kickstarter now.
