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.
