Forever Lock Is the Unpickable Bike Lock

by Conner Flynn

Most locks that are designed to secure your bike in public are usually U-shaped and have funny-shaped keys, but if you feel that is not secure enough, try the Forever Lock. It has a great design for added security.

It hides the keyhole out of reach, so that it can’t be accessed with traditional lock picking tools. You have to insert the specially-designed key inside of the mechanism, through a combination of actions. It’s sort of like a puzzle game, but easier to solve. The video explains it better:

You can’t officially buy one in the U.S. market yet, but according to the guy in the video, he is selling them for $140 each if you contact him. Seem expensive? Sure, but if you’ve got an expensive bike, this is a super secure lock, and short of a thief using a blowtorch to cut it, it’s not getting opened by crooks.

    Are people picking the locks when they steal the bike? Every time I see something like that they use a sawzall or cutting wheel and cut through the entire lock in about 20 seconds.

    This lock IS available. The guy who made the video is just buying these locks from the Taiwanese online shopping site PChome (where I do a lot of shopping) and then reselling at a higher cost.

    I had this lock for a while already.
