OTTOLOCK™ is an all-new cinch lock for both cyclists and outdoor enthusiasts who need a lightweight, compact, and secure solution.
This current run has ended, but there are more recent runs for OTTOLOCK™ ● The Go-Anywhere Cinch Lock for Bikes & More. Click here to go to the most recent run.
Why don't many cyclists use locks? They are too heavy, too cumbersome, too bulky, and not designed for those who really want to ride their bikes.
OTTOLOCK is an all-new cinch lock for both cyclists and outdoor enthusiasts who value their gear and need a small, safe, and lightweight solution for their lifestyle. It's far more secure than a cable lock, and much lighter than a U-lock.
P.S. You can use it for a lot more than bikes!
OTTOLOCK solves your security problem with a patent-pending, multi-layer steel band design. It's simple and versatile, but surprisingly stronger than meets the eye!
In or around your saddle bag, in your pocket, or anywhere you want: OTTOLOCK is so lightweight you won't even know you are carrying it.
OTTOLOCK is extremely cut-resistant because of an engineered design that uses multiple layers of high-temper, 18mm-wide stainless steel bands coated in Santoprene® (a highly durable plastic) combined with a Kevlar® band. Under load, the bands slide upon one another and effectively reduce shear forces. Conventional theft tools like wire or bolt cutters are just not enough to cut the OTTOLOCK.
OTTOLOCK has applications beyond bicycles! Ski/Snow, Auto/Truck Cargo & Racks, Travel/Luggage/Gear, Tools, Camping, Motorcycles, Scooters, Surfboards, Canoe & Kayak.The possibilities with OTTOLOCK are limitless.
The 30" (76cm) OTTOLOCK weighs under 1/4lb (115g) and coils to under 3" (7.5cm) in diameter making it easy to pack and store in pockets, backpacks, purses, or jerseys (or on the bike). In comparison, U-locks or chain locks are 10-20x heavier than OTTOLOCK, and simply difficult to carry.
The cinching function also keeps your gear locked tight, and you can enclose up to 60" (150cm) in diameter. We've designed OTTOLOCK with three resettable combination wheels with detented action, custom locking pawls, and a durable aluminum head.
The OTTOLOCK will come in multiple colors, and be available in three lengths - starting with the all-around 30" (76cm) version, the super compact 18" (45cm) Pro Ride version, and the60" (150cm) extended version (which is also long enough to lock multiple wheels to a post). You can also hook or 'daisy-chain' multiple OTTOLOCKs together.
Important: Please note for this hunt we only have the all-round 30" (76cm) version available. All colours available.
The OTTOLOCK is both designed and manufactured in the USA.
On Kickstarter you would have to pay $115 to get this yourself. Grouphunt can get it for you cheaper. How? With the power of group buying.
But this power only works if we all pull our own weight. If there's 10 of us who joins this hunt, the price drops to $79. That's a 31% discount right there! So join the hunt and get sharing!

Hey there. Wouldn't it be cheaper if on the KS page someone pledges for the 10 pack? So each OTTO 30" (inc. shipping to Singapore) would cost USD 49 or about SGD 67 instead of the SGD 79 on the Grouphunt page?
I haven't done any transactions via GH so I don't know whether there are refunds of the difference. Have backed a ton of projects on KS though!
Hey James! Thanks for writing in and welcome to the hunt! =)
Great question and happy to shed some light! While your sums on the surface are correct, there are other costs involved in forming and distributing the group, such as GST, payment gateway charges, and logistics fees. After factoring the actual costs, the SGD $79 price is the best we can offer for the existing 10 pack group pledge tier, and includes a small admin fee so Grouphunt can remain sustainable.
We actually did have a case for The Fidget Cube hunt where we were able to unlock a larger group pledge quantum than we initially expected, and therefore refunded credits to our members who joined that hunt and subsequently lowered the price for the 2nd run (https://www.grouphunt.sg/posts/LZTGDpFbMwShocHSi/fidget-cube-a-vinyl-desk-toy-2nd-run). However, this only works if there is a larger pledge quantum to unlock which is not so for the OTTOLOCK campaign at the moment.
Hope this helps!
