VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Jan. 29, 2013) - The InterLock™ is a seat post with bike lock inside of it. This bike lock is an integrated lock that hides inside of the frame of virtually any bicycle. While the lock is not in use, it is concealed and stored in the seat post allowing you to ride without your hanging off of your bike.
The newest product by Solgaard Design, The InterLock™, has taken off on the popular crowdfunding site, Kickstarter. Adrian Solgaard Janzen, creator of The InterLock™, has set the project's initial funding goal at $48,000 and needs to raise these funds in order to cover tooling and material costs for the lock.
There are different ways to use the The InterLock™; simply pull the cable out and slip it through the frame of a bike or use it in conjunction with a standard U-Lock which is recommended for high-risk areas in order to secure the seat and rear wheel to the bike. Does removing the seat mean the bike can be stolen? NO. Be sure to run the the cable through the frame and rear wheel to secure the entire bike and those parts to the bike rack.
"About a year ago, my bike was stolen due to a faulty lock," explains Solgaard. "Losing my bike combined with the hassle of carrying around a bulky bike lock inspired me to create The InterLock™ for cyclists around the world."
The lock will retail for an estimated $50, but is offered at a discount for early adopters on Kickstarter. For a pledge of $39, backers will receive the InterLock™ bicycle seat post with a weather resistant lock and two keys. However, in order for the product to be manufactured, it must reach its total funding goal of $48,000.
Currently, The InterLock™ has raised over 70% of the necessary funds, with an 'all or nothing' deadline of February 5th.
