My daughter loves to scoot to school. As do most of her friends.
Luckily school provides a safe and secure scooter and bike store which is kept locked during the day. However, it's all too easy to pick up the wrong scooter in the mad dash of pick-up time. They all look the same, and I'm embarrassed to say I have accidentally taken the wrong one home before.
She also likes to ride it when we run local errands to the shops or the library, and sometimes when we take the dog to the park. Our supermarket has a strict policy on not allowing scooters or bikes into the store so we have to leave it by the door. We live in a small town where most people know each other, but on occasions I have worried about whether it would be there when we return.
A bike lock isn't really ideal for a scooter as there's no handy place to store it, and it would mean me having to remember to pop it in my bag each time we go out.
This is why I'm so impressed with Scoot Lock. It solves all these issues.
In bright, eye-catching colours, it makes picking the right scooter out of a whole shed of others a doddle as it's easily identifiable. The lock remains in situ on the stem of the scooter meaning it's always with you. It works with a combination code so there's no worries about forgetting or losing your key. And it locks it safely and securely around any handy lamp post or railings, deterring a would-be opportunist thief.
The front of the lock has a reflective badge, making scooting home in the dusk (yes, it will soon be that time of the year again!) much safer.
Fitting it was easy - I actually watched this YouTube video which shows how straightforward it is. You are able to set the 4 number combination to whatever you like, so you can choose a memorable number for your child (just maybe not as memorable as 1-2-3-4 which Ruby suggested!) You can choose to fit it at any height up the stem of the scooter, we opted to towards the bottom as it will suit the store at school. The lock comes complete with spacers enabling it to be fitted to any size scooter, even adult ones, and if your child upgrades their scooter, it can be removed and fitted to the new one.
The plastic coated toughened steel cable is 90 cm long making it easy to find a spot to lock to. It is spring loaded so it safely stores inside the unit when not in use.
Scoot Lock would also be great to use on a bike or buggy, giving you peace of mind when you're out and about.
Scoot locks come in a range of bright, bold colours and there's a selection of fun stickers you can purchase to customise your lock. Scoot lock costs £19.99, which given the cost of our expensive scooter, is a wise investment.
