BICYCLE THEFT STATISTICS
Each year, somewhere between 800,000 and two million bicycles—worth some $50 million-are stolen. It's difficult to determine the precise number of stolen bikes, because most bike theft is never reported to law enforcement. Thus, even though 48% of stolen bikes are recovered by law enforcement, only 5% of stolen bikes are returned to their owners.
Despite these dismal statistics, you can protect your bike and decrease your chances of bike theft by deterring thieves with our high-end security bicycle locks by EternaLock.
How to Protect Your Bike from Theft
There are two distinct aspects to protecting your bike: Documentation and a proper locking technique; mainly a secure bicycle lock. Both are essential to proper bicycle security.
It is always beneficial to document your bike. Far too many bike owners fail to record the serial numbers on their bikes or to document any other proof of ownership. In the event your bike is stolen, you will have recorded imperative information that could assist law enforcement in recovering your bike.
Secondly, there are only two types of bicycle locks you should consider for your bike. One is a bicycle shackle lock and the other is a heavy duty bicycle cable lock, both, manufactured by EternaLock. All internal and external components are manufactured from 100 % stainless steel; making our bike locks rust and corrosion resistant. The uniquely designed bicycle cable lock is machined from solid bar stock which is much stronger than your "typical" cable and pad lock. This is an all in one cable lock combination, eliminating the worry of misplacing a lock component. The bicycle shackle lock, as well as the bicycle cable lock, are inserted into the lock housing unit and then kept secure by an internal ball. The cam rotates around an internal ball, encapsulating the lock with 95% engagement to prevent theft. Operating key cannot be removed from the system until the lock is completely engaged.
Bicycle Rule of Thumb
You will want to lock your bike to a metal structure that is securely fastened in cement or otherwise fastened securely to the cement, which cannot be easily cut or dismantled. If you are locking to a metal pole, make sure that it is securely fastened in cement, or that the bolts are not loose or easily removed.
Many bike owners will combine 2 style bike locks; one being a bicycle cable lock and the other is a bicycle shackle lock, or even two bicycle shackle locks, when securing their bicycle. The more time and trouble it takes a bicycle thief to attack your bike the less likely it is that your bike will become a theft statistic. The main ingredient in bicycle safety is a secure bicycle lock.
Helpful Don'ts to Assure Bicycle Safety
DON'T be fooled by flimsy lock manufacturers; it is very important to understand the internal and external components of the bike lock you are purchasing
DON'T be sold on the appearance of a bicycle lock; just because it looks cool does not mean it will properly secure your bike
DON'T ever leave a new bike unlocked. New bikes have the most value to thieves and they look for them
DON'T lock your bike to small trees, aluminum or wooden posts, or to chain link fences. These items can be easily broken or cut
DON'T lock you bike to itself. A thief will just carry the whole bike away

Bicycle Shackle Lock
Why Shackle Lock?
Shackle locks use a solid bar lock housing unit and rounded shackle. Shackle locks are manufactured from stainless steel and are rust/corrosion resistant. The operating key cannot be removed until the bicycle lock is fully engaged. Bicycle shackle locks can be purchased in various lengths and are best suited affixed on the drive wheel of the intended bicycle.
Bicycle Cable Lock
Why Cable Lock?
The cable locking system is offered in a variety of diameter sizes and lengths accommodating the vast styles of bikes on the market. A unique feature is the fact that the cable lock is manufactured in complete stainless steel making it extremely difficult to cut and is rust/corrosion resistant. EternaLock's bicycle locks are not combination locks. It is an all in one locking system eliminating the need of additional locking pieces. EternaLock's cable lock is a lighter weight then our chain lock but provides the same sense of security.
