light-lock / The bicycle light lock


In the past, when cyclists enter a coffee shop or convenience store, it has always been a troubling process of drawing out the bike lock, locking the bike, and removing the bike lights. Without such hassle, they would have to enter their destination with much unease.
Light-lock is designed to address this problem and simplify the locking process. It combines the bike light with the bike lock. When one decides to leave the bike for a minute, one has to simply place the light-lock on the spokes of the wheel and remove the sensor ring. This would relief the rider of the locking process, and the worries of leaving the bike unlocked.
