How to secure e-scooters correctly
As the geometry of the e-scooter makes locking difficult, you should take the following aspects into account:
The e-scooter must be secured at the location where it cannot be pulled out by being rotated and flipped over. For this reason, the lock should also comply with certain requirements to prevent theft.
Tip 1: Make sure that you don't just lock your scooter but also connect it to a sturdy object. Ideally, you wrap the lock around the frame so the scooter cannot be lifted out of the lock (illustration at right)
Tip 2: Do not forget to secure your scooter at home as well—even in your driveway or garage.
And one more tip: Always carry your lock with you—and use it!
Generally, you should only use locks with a maximum length of 85 cm. ABUS offers a selection of chain, shackle and folding locks. Find the lock that's right for you.
