Skunklock, A Bike Lock That Sprays Vomit-Inducing Chemicals When Cut

November 1, 2016

This is the Skunklock (currently an already funded Indiegogo campaign), a $120 bike lock that contains pressurized noxious chemicals that can make a would-be bike thief vomit when the lock is cut. Heck yeah, I love making people puke. That's like one of my things. Especially jerks who deserve it. I might even cut my own lock.

Keep going for a video.

Thanks to hairless, who agrees the key to preventing bike theft is running at the would-be thief with a ninja sword screaming TURTLE POWER.

    What if the thief is holding his breath?

    a little bit of the inventor's poop inside each one. like that Vince Vaughn movie "Delivery Man."

  • asdfadfs

    theres an artist that does that

  • Frédéric Purenne

    This would be good ONLY if it's not easily identifiable as being a skunklock.

  • asdfadfs

    it's gotta be obvious, like a poison frog. otherwise they've already stolen the bike by the time they're hit with a deterrent. that's why skunks have stripes and stand on their head before they mace you

  • Xockszky

    Yes. It would be great if it didn't give you any warning. I bet there'll also be decals you can buy on eBay from China to make a normal bike lock look like a Skunk Lock.

    electrical/duct/duck/etc tape

    If your only goal was to make people puke then being easily identifiable as a skunklock wouldn't work. However, if your goal was to not have your bike stolen... come on.

  • Andrew Newton

    Come on what? He mentioned how it would be good for it to not be identifiable - these were merely suggestions. There are many better ways to make people puke than waiting for some asshole to come and steal your bike. If fact, this product would be the most inefficient way to make people puke. This product is a big fuck you to anyone trying to steal your bike and it helps to ensure if even when your lock is destroyed they will still not be making off with your bike.

  • asdfadfs

    what if you only want to make bike stealing assholes puke?

  • HP Flashman

    Andrew - I meant to reply to the OP but replied to you. He said that it would be good ONLY if not clearly identifiable. I counter that it would work as a deterrent if clearly marked. I figured he meant it would work ONLY as a puke inducer if IDd. F a bike thief. I'd like to see a lock that would shock a thief.

  • Andrew Newton

    gotcha

    Spray paint. Or you know... lock your bike properly. I hate how the bikes shown locked are poorly locked.

  • Xockszky

    You mean like when someone locks their bike up to a chain link fence, and then they put the lock on one of the chains of the fence? You can almost cut that shit with school scissors!

  • GeneralDisorder

    You definitely don't put your lock in a clamp with no bike to be seen. That defeats the purpose of the bike lock pretty effectively.

    Basically make sure you lock to something solid, something that's not illegal to lock to, and through the wheel and frame at minimum.
