After multiple thefts of his and his friends bicycles, Daniel Idzkowski decided to revisit how a lock could deter a thief. The result is the SKUNKLOCK. When a thief attempts to cut through the lock, it releases noxious chemicals that coat the thief, inducing vomiting – when tested on volunteers, at two feet 99% threw up, and at five feet they felt an overwhelming urge to get away from it.
The lock is made from hardened steel, and the chemicals can only be accessed by cutting into the chamber. The chemical compound used can be varied to meet with varying regulations in US states and the EU (including the UK)
