Like the name Hiplok suggests, their chain locks are actually worn belt-like around the waist. The chain is covered with a nylon sleeve, which protects bicycle paint jobs and components by preventing the metal chain links from striking the frame. And now with Superbright reflectivity added, this new Hiplok protects riders with a 2-inch-wide band of reflected light when riding at night in traffic. Hiplok’s other new product is the Z Loks. You get 2 per package and 1 key. They look just like oversized zip ties, which is pretty much what they are, with a steel core inside the Z Loks, and a more aggressive gripping action.
