Cyclescheme Competition - Win 1 of 10 free Squire Snaploks

Cyclescheme and Squire have teamed up to offer 10 lucky website visitors the chance to secure their bike with the UK’s highest security rated combination cycle lock yet.

Squire’s new Snaplok™ is the only combination cycle lock available on the market to offer cyclists Sold Secure ‘silver’ status – indicating theft resistance against a determined form of attack for at least three minutes. Sold Secure is a police and government backed scheme administrated by the Master Locksmiths’ Association to promote high security and anti-crime design and construction.

Patented, designed and made in Britain, Snaplok™ is made from hardened boron alloy steel and features a recodable five-digit combination lock with over 100,000 combinations – and it comes with a 10-year guarantee.

Uniquely, the metal loop shape of Snaplok™ is designed on the appearance of a ‘carabiner’, more commonly used for mountain climbing. The Snaplok is also considerably lighter weight than an equivalent Sold Secure D-lock.

Developed with urban cyclists and commuters in mind, it also offers the utmost convenience with ‘no keys to lose’ and a specially designed carry bracket to be used when on the move.

With its anti-crime design and theft resistance, Snaplok™ is the cycling accessory of choice for cyclists looking to invest in the most advanced combination cycle lock of its kind. 

All Squire cycle security products are rated with the company’s official 15-stage security rating, showing at a glance the lock’s level of security from 1 (low) to 15 (maximum). 

Snaplok™ boasts a security rating of 13 demonstrating the lock’s high level of security.

Snaplok is available in two sizes – 210mm (Snaplok™ 210) and 260mm (Snaplok™ 260) and retails at £59.99 (inc.VAT) for Snaplok™ 210 and £69.99 (inc.VAT) for Snaplok™ 260.

With 1,200 bikes stolen every day across the UK, it has never been more important for cyclists to take extra precautions against the threat of attack from thieves.  Here are Squire’s top-tips:

  • Try to park in a public place in full view
  • Lock your bike near to other bikes and CCTV if possible
  • At night use a well lit position
  • Change your parking location regularly
  • If possible, lock your bike to a solid object
  • Use more than one lock
  • Lock the frame, front and back wheel
  • Always lock your bike – even at home
