So, you just got a brand-new electric scooter. It’s an exciting time.
You’re ready to ride it all over the city.
But keeping your scooter protected from theft is important. Electric scooters are easier to steal than other e-vehicles because they generally weigh less and can be more easily picked up.
That’s why you need a great lock to keep your scooter secure wherever you park it.
We have reviewed the top 5 best locks for your electric scooter below. No matter your security needs, you’ll be sure to find a lock that will work for you.
NDakter Bike Lock Cable
This coiling cable comes with a 5-digit resettable combination in 7 vibrant color options. A 5-digit combination lock is harder to crack than a traditional 4-digit lock, so you can rest easy knowing your scooter is secured by an extra layer of protection. You can easily personalize the lock with your own combination so you won’t get locked out because you forgot a code of 5 random numbers.
The braided steel cable is coated in PVC to prevent wear and tear. It can withstand 2.4KN tension and 7KN shear force, so it cannot be broken through easily. The 4’ x 1.5” cable also coils on its own, making it easy to pack up and carry wherever you need to go. It comes with a mounting bracket so you can add it to other objects and make transporting it even easier.
Due to its long length, you can even lock up multiple scooters if you have a partner you like to ride with. Or you can lock your scooter around a thick-trunked tree, a railing, and other study objects.
