But rest assured it’s a bicycle lock first and foremost. The above is just another example of a title nightmare, which is fast becoming a common occurrence here at geeky Gadgets. Anyway, what you see down south is more than a fashion accessory; it’s a super tough bicycle lock to protect your precious two-wheel ride.
There’s no hard science or amazing gadgetry behind the Hiplok, just a steel chain in a nylon sleeve that has a padlock at one end. When you’re wearing this to prove how street you are, simply swing around them hips and roll. When it’s time to secure your precious bike, then lock this baby onto some solid structure. When you’re assailed by thugs who want your pedaled ride, the Hiplok is also a viable weapon.
Okay, okay, so we made up that last part. Keep in mind, however, that belt mode and lock mode on the Hiplok differs. When wearing it like a belt, simply button the extra length of nylon on that silver nub/button enar the padlock. When locking down the bike, attach the last chain link on the padlock’s hasp.
The Hiplok is available now for $114. Go here to view the product page and learn how it makes you look gangsta while crawlin’ ’round the ‘hood.
