Securing Your Ride: Top Locks for Electric Scooters in 2023

February 28, 2024

Ensuring the safety of your electric scooter against theft is imperative as their popularity skyrockets. Whether parked outside your favorite café or stored in an urban environment, choosing the right lock can make all the difference. Here's a rundown of the best electric scooter locks on the market, tailored to safeguard your personal mode of transportation.

High-Security U-Locks

  • Levy U-Lock: This heavyweight contender offers premium protection with its 18mm hardened steel shackle. Despite its compact size, it's challenging for potential thieves to cut or break.

  • ABUS Granit X-Plus 540: Boasting a square parabolic shackle made from hardened steel, the ABUS Granit X-Plus 540 is another fantastic choice for high-risk areas. An innovative double locking mechanism adds an extra layer of security.

Foldable Locks

  • FoldyLock Compact: A unique offering in the lock arena, this foldable lock combines flexibility with strength. It unfolds to 85cm.

  • Levy Folding Scooter Lock: Equivalent in strength to the FoldyLock but at a much more reasonable price.

  • ABUS Bordo Granit XPlus 6500: For a blend of portability and security, this foldable lock is constructed from bars connected with rivets, making it a solid choice that’s easy to carry when not in use.

Chain Locks

  • Kryptonite Evolution Series 4 Integrated Chain: A hardy option for scooter security, this chain lock comes with a protective nylon cover to keep your scooter scratch-free and a disc lock for maximum protection.

  • OnGuard Mastiff Chain Lock with Key: With its titanium-enforced, hardened steel square link chain and mini U-lock, the Mastiff is a fierce guardian for any scooter, such as the versatile Kaabo Mantis 8 Pro.

Smart Locks

  • Nulock Keyless Bluetooth Bike/Scooter Lock: Smart locks like the Nulock offer convenience with their keyless, Bluetooth-enabled system. You unlock it with your smartphone, keeping keys out of the equation entirely.

Remember that the best lock for your electric scooter depends on your individual needs and the security requirements of your usual parking spots. Always combine the strength of a good lock with smart parking practices to deter would-be thieves effectively.

By prioritizing your scooter's security with a top-notch lock, you can enjoy the convenience of your Inokim Mini 2 or any other scooter from our extensive reviews with peace of mind. Keep a lookout for new lock advancements and technologies that continue to enhance security for electric scooter enthusiasts.
