Bike locks don’t really work. A serious thief can even cut through the thick U-shaped ones in less than a minute. So it’s come to . . . CHEMICAL WARFARE.
There’s a new crowdfunding project on Indiegogo right now called the SkunkLock, and it’s either genius or diabolical.
It’s a bike lock that’s filled with a special noxious chemical gas, so when a thief cuts through the lock, it releases the gas . . . and makes them start VOMITING uncontrollably.
The inventors say the gas only spreads about two feet, so other people in the area won’t get sick . . . but the thief is screwed.
If you want to preorder one, it’ll cost you $109. They’re planning on shipping them in June . . . assuming their lawyers determine that the locks are actually LEGAL.
