Started by USC roomies Mikey and Amir, Nutlock doesn’t look to key locks for every removable component on your bike. They’re simply looking to secure your wheels to your frame, making it quicker and easier for you to lock your bike up when commuting. The idea is if your wheels aren’t able to be stolen, you don’t need to lug a long cable or multiple locks around – a simple U-Lock will lock the frame to a rack and that’s all you need to worry about.
The trick feature is the special tool used to tighten and remove the proprietary bolts, which doubles as a keychain and….
The key and nuts come in different groove shapes, so the chances of your frenemy having the same one and pranking you is slim, just as it’s unlikely a thief would have the right match. The skewers are made of non-corrosive German steel and weigh in at a respectable 39g front and 44g rear.
The Kickstarter campaign goes live today offering Nutlock at $25 for a single skewer to protect one wheel, and $39 for a set.
