Learn how to evaluate locks according to their quality, and how to choose the most suitable one for you

Nowadays, leaving an electric scooter parked in the middle of the street (especially if it is high-end), is the closest thing to leaving candy at the door of a school...and it is not worth taking any kind of risk. using low-quality padlocks that are easy to cut and manipulate. We are dealing with high-value products, which in many cases are also our daily means of transportation.

This is why from Ecosmart Riders™, as experts in e-scooters and micro mobility, we want to help you choose those locks that, according to our rigorous analysis, are the best you can find on the market in 2024. < /p>

To carry out this analysis, and select the 5 best anti-theft devices of 2024, we have evaluated them according to the quality they offer us in these sections:

✅ SECURITY LEVEL:The most important quality that a good padlock must have is to have a level of security that is above average. Normally the security level is measured on a scale of 0-10 or 0-15 points, with the average being 5 out of 10 (5/10) or 7 out of 15 (7/15). In addition to this, the most prestigious brands have certifications in this regard.

The level of security is very consistent with the price, and the materials with which it is manufactured. We must always choose tempered steel/reinforced steel padlocks, of a certain thickness. And avoid some types of locks, such as cable locks, which can be cut by any "amateur" in a few seconds.

✅ BRAND / MANUFACTURER: There are hundreds, if not thousands, of brands that are offering these products. But we must separate the wheat from the chaff, and choose only prestigious brands (mostly European and North American) that are specialized in these products. It's not worth taking risks, for a small price difference. And because of our experience, we can assure that brands like Abus® or Kryptonite® are always a guarantee of the best quality.

✅ DESIGN / PORTABILITY: In this section we prioritize those locks that have a design more suitable for electric scooters. And they also offer us a high level of portability to be able to transport them comfortably.
