The Ot­toLock is a rather nifty new se­cu­rity life-saver de­signed and man­u­fac­tured in the US of A. Al­though it looks noth­ing more than a flimsy stretch of ribbed plas­tic, it’s ac­tu­ally con­structed from stain­less steel and bands of Kevlar, which has then be housed in durable anti-scratch San­to­prene plas­tic. The man­u­fac­tur­ers say that the steel-band de­sign makes it lighter than a U-lock; it saves more space than a U-lock; and the ma­te­ri­als are durable enough to re­sist con­ven­tional theft tools like wire or bolt cut­ters. As for lock­ing, that’s down to a less high-tech com­bi­na­tion lock. It also comes in three sizes: 18in, 30in and 60in. www.ot­tode­sign­works.com
