If you know anything about zip ties, they’re designed to be pretty darn tough. If the Police run out of handcuffs, they default to zip ties for wrangling perpetrators – especially if there’s a large number of people being arrested. So, in other words, zip ties work. Hiplock, creators of award-winning bike locks, is tapping into the powers of the zip tie and has unveiled its newest product: the Z-Lok.
Whether you want to lock up your bike outside a cafe while grabbing a morning Latte or simply secure camping gear to your car rack, Z-Lok security ties keep your stuff safe and are super easy to carry around. Just simply shove one of these ties in your pocket and lock up your valuables during any stop along the way.
Hiplock’s compact bicycle lock has a stainless steel core and is equipped with a double-sided locking mechanism. Anyone wanting to steal your belongings would have to cut through Lok’s stainless steel core or have the universal key. Since your security tie can’t be cut with a knife and only Z-Lok users have the universal key, the chances of seeing your bike lifted are rather slim.
If you ever wanted that added security of pinning down your equipment because of a long road trip, the Z-Lok security ties are the answer. Equipped with a double locking mechanism and a highly-durable security cover, you’ll rest easy knowing that your bikes and helmets are fastened tightly to your vehicle. When you’re ready to unclip your outdoor gear, simply release the Z-Lok using the two-pronged universal key.
The highly-portable, super tough Z-Lok come in sets of two – adding an extra layer of protection in case you want to zip tie your bike to a park bench then fasten your helmet to the bike. It keeps all your belongings safe with the extra Z-Lok tie.
So as much as Z-Lok sounds like the best alternative to carrying around a bulky Kryptonite Bike lock wherever you go, there is one major drawback: Z-Lok owners can unlock each other’s bikes using the universal key. As the popularity of Hiplok’s zip ties grows, would-be thieves could get “keys to the city” aka, everyone’s belongings by getting their hands on a set of Z-Lok ties.
