MEERKAT - Based on extensive research, MEERKAT combines a rear wheel immobiliser, front wheel/frame lock and seat lock/beacon into a convenient and unobtrusive anti bike theft device
MEERKAT - Overview - MEERKAT replaces the mudguard with a seat lock, rear wheel immobilizer and wire lock for securing the front wheel and frame with a convenient, unobtrusive anti-theft device
MEERKAT - Use - 1. Unlock seat lock with Key fob 2.Rotate up, lock down over seat 3.Unlock wheel lock, rotate down, lock through wheel 4.Release wire lock 5.Lock front wheel & frame to post
MEERKAT - Range - From the ground up MEERKAT was designed to fit most bike frames. There was also a drive to make its aesthetic as neutral as possible to allow it to match any bike design
MEERKAT - Development - Combining the beacon concept with an immobilizer lock was the next development. Illustrator was used to create numerous concepts based on tall & short beacon configurations
MEERKAT - Concepting - One concept explored making a lock which also acts as a beacon to passersby, creating a subconscious neighbourhood watch effect, making thieves nervous about approaching it
MEERKAT - Inspiration - Preventing bike theft is almost impossible. However, locking your bike amongst others in a busy area and making it stand out as the least attractive to steal is a start
