Introduction: Zip Tie Bike Theft Prevention Device
have you ever tried to lock up your bike with a nice big u-lock only to find that the badly designed city bike lock-ups prevent you from locking your wheel to nither the frame nor the lock-up this is to help with this
and yes i know this will not stop a determined criminal but to the casual kleptomaniac this will make it exponentially harder to steal a quick release front wheel
its dead simple
1 get a zip tie (or 2 or 4 or 17)
2 locate the hole in your wheel release handle ( if you don"t have one improvise, make one, or just wrap it around)
3 put a zip tie in the hole and around the frame
congrats your done and please get a real lock to compliment this it will not stop anyone armed with sharpened safe-T scissors
thanks for reading please vote
i have lots of ideas for projects involving a laser cutter if i magically win the lazer contest :D
