Hiplok announced the ANKR, a new anchoring system for bicycle locks. The device uses four bolts to secure into virtually any sturdy surface – even a brick wall. It is compatible with any standard D-lock or chain lock, giving you near limitless options for where to park your bike.
While Hiplok is better known for their actual locking devices, the new ANKR is an interesting concept. Traditional locks don’t work when there isn’t a place to actually use it – and the ANKR provides an answer.
The four provided attachment bolts work with masonry, concrete, or wood. The hardened steel frame has a 75 x 44mm opening for your bike lock.
Hiplok co-founder, Ben Smith, commented
“With the latest crime statistics indicating that most bikes are stolen from homes or outbuildings, we wanted to bring our unique Hiplok problem solving design approach to bike storage. Alongside our wearable bike locks and Z LOK security ties, we can now offer cyclists quality, practical secure storage products to help protect bikes at home, in the garage or at work.”
The ANKR is available now for $100. Color choices include black, white, and red.
