ALARMING BICYCLE THIEVES

According to recent statistics, there are over 1.5 million bicycle thefts in the U.S. each year. As high as it is, the number isn't really surprising, given the fact that a bicycle is a pretty easy thing to steal. To help keep your kid's bike where they left it, Factory Enhancements Corporation has developed the Cy-Curity Bicycle Alarm. The remote-activated device contains a motion sensor that detects any unwanted movement of the bike, emitting a 115-decibel siren. Much like key chain car alarms, the Cy-Curity system allows the bike owner to remotely activate the alarm from up to a distance of 100 feet. Weighing just three ounces, the battery-operated unit requires no tools for installation on the underside of the seat. This “isn't a replacement for a bicycle lock," says Perryn Holtrop, the alarm's inventor. "Because bike locks and cables can be cut, they should be used in conjunction with the Cy-Curity system to help prevent theft." The alarm sells for $49.95 plus shipping and handling. Call (800) 971-0778 or visit www.Cy-Curity.com.
