Conrad, maker of toys in Germany, came up with an innovative bike lock that climbs up the pole where you park your bike. With this new invention, bike thieves will have a difficult time stealing a bike, unless they use a ladder to get to it. The company sponsored a campaign titled “3 teams, 14 days, 150,000 Opportunities” and Team A from Hamburg submitted this invention.

The climbing bike lock is shaped like a hexagon with roller wheels attached to it. The lock is electronic and the whole mechanism is used with a remote control. The locking of the bike and wheeling it up to the top of the pole is pretty easy to do. Although—the bike lock looks a bit heavy to lug around on a ride. It’s not shown how the arms of the climbing bike lock can be adjusted if used on a thinner pole.
