KOVIX motorcycle security beats bike thieves

Bike thieves attempting to steal a scooter in Hull were foiled thanks to a KOVIX alarmed chain lock, which resisted attacks from three different heavy duty cutting tools.

Starting with a blow torch, the thieves tried to breach the cast steel lock casing. When that failed, they took an angle grinder to one of the 10mm chain links, without success. Finally they resorted to bolt-croppers, but these merely dented the chain link, without making a serious impression.

Incredibly the 120db alarm still worked after the onslaught and the owner was so impressed that he returned to the shop where he purchased the lock to buy a replacement.

The Metropolitan Police advise riders to use two or more security devices to reduce the risk of becoming a victim of bike theft and, by combining a deafening alarm siren with a high specification lock & chain, the KOVIX KCL10-150 is a formidable double-act.

Its 1.5M long hexagonal chain has 10 mm diameter hardened steel links, which are highly resistant to cutting and sawing, and the lock mechanism has a stainless steel case and key barrel, with a hardened steel lock pin, so it is equally tough and durable. The 120db alarm has shock and movement sensors and is powered by a long-life lithium battery.

KOVIX design and manufacture a wide range of intelligent security products in their own factory, giving them total control over specification and quality.

Innovative motorcycle security from KOVIX

Kovix motorcycle security products are now available to UK riders, offering a wide choice of anti-theft devices to suit all situations, from a mini disc lock costing just £19.99 to an alarmed chain lock at £124.99.

For more than a decade, Kovix has designed and manufactured a wide range of intelligent security products in its own factory, which are now being officially distributed in the UK for the first time by The Key Collection, making them available from dealers nationwide, with full spares and technical support.

The range covers all the popular styles of bike lock – disc locks, chain locks and U-locks – and many are available with built-in alarms.

Kovix alarms are unique, with innovative features specifically designed for motorcycle use;

  • Piercing 120db alarm siren – louder than a chainsaw or rock concert – with automatic re-set
  • Fully weatherproof module, which can be removed and replaced by the owner
  • Option to turn the alarm function on or off, to suit the circumstances
  • Long life lithium battery

Kovix also produce a range of practical accessories, including 1.5M cables with an adapter that attaches to their disc locks (£34.99), lock holders, so that disc locks can be carried on the bike while riding between stops (£12.99) and disc lock reminders (£4.99).

Retail prices for alarmed disc locks start at £59.99 for the KD6, (pictured above), which has a steel body and 6mm locking pin.

Alarmed chain lock prices begin at £74.99 for the KCL8-120, which features an ultra-strong lock unit that is welded to the 1.2M chain.

Some products in the range, like the KBL16 alarmed padlock (£94.99), are so tough that they are tested and certified to Classe SRA, the French security standard that is required by insurers in that country.

All Kovix locks come with numbered keys, which can be replaced by most key-cutters using a unique code, without needing to copy the original.
