Bicycle theft has been a big problem in many cities. Frame Lock integrates the lock with a bicycle, which means if the thief breaks the lock, the bicycle frame would be damaged and it cannot be fixed or used any more. So it will help prevent bicycle thieves as they don't want a broken bicycle. To use Frame Lock, just rotate it down to lock your front wheel and you do not need to carry a lock with you. You also can lock your bicycle with other stuff.
Structure:Ball socket joints inside insure the lock can be rotated flexibly.
