Scootlock: Safe Scooters (giveaway & discount code)


Collaborative Post

We’ve been out road-testing the latest must-have scooter accessory; a Scootlock!

My eldest loves racing around the park on her scooter and our younger daughter is getting into it now too. But what do you do when they spy the playground and you’re left with 2 scooters, a pushchair, and 2 children to keep an eye on?!

…Introducing the Scootlock!

What Is A Scootlock?

A Scootlock (£19.99) is a nifty little gadget that allows you to quickly and easily fasten your scooter to a fence or bench. It’s a bit like a bike lock but it lives on your child’s scooter so you always have it with you (one less thing for us busy parents to worry about!) and unlocks by inputting the pin-code.

My daughters were so excited about choosing their own “secret code” for the Scootlock! My 5yo said it’s just like when Roquefort has to unlock the chest in The Aristocats by twisting the dial to the right number.

We chose two pink locks but there are five colours to choose from, and they can be easily adapted to fit adult or junior scooters, bikes, or even pushchairs (think peace-of-mind when you have to queue for buggy-free tourist attractions / activities).

As the dark winter nights are starting to close in, it’s also great to know that the Scootlock badge is reflective, making your kids easily visible.

Our Verdict

The Scootlock is easy to use, and is a really simple way to keep your kid’s scooter safe. We love that it is always attached to the scooter because mummy is we are a bit forgetful sometimes.

My 5yo struggled a little to fasten the scooter up by herself as you have to hold a button down and pull the cable out of the coil at the same time, but I’m sure she’ll get the hang of it after a few tries. Plus, she feels very grown up and excited about having her own secret code.

Plus Points:

  • Easy to attach
  • Always have it with you
  • Secret codes are exciting!

Difficulties:

  • Was a bit fiddly for my 5yo to work by herself

Overall, we felt it was a really useful product, and would be a fantastic addition to any scooters that might be hiding under the Christmas Tree in a few weeks time!

    What a fab idea! I’m always bringing the scooter into places I probably shouldn’t for fear of leaving it and then getting it stolen….this is the perfect solution. Thanks for linking up to #coolmumclub lovely x

    This post could not have come into my life at a more appropriate time! The hubby and I were literally discussing this last night as we are going to a holiday park shortly and taking the little one’s scooter, but couldn’t work out how to secure it in the buggy parks while we go in to use the indoor facilities? This is perfect! I shall be back shortly to click… x #coolmumclub

      Oh yes it’d be perfect for that sort of thing! We had a similar thing the other week because we went to CBeebies Land and had to leave the pram in the buggy park whenever we wanted to go on a ride – I wish we’d had these then!

    I think it is a great idea & also shows children that we need to look after our items & make sure they are secure when left alone. I like the bright colours too!

    What a clever idea! My boy has a scooter and I do worry about it when we go to the playground and I have to abandon it while we play. This is the perfect solution!xx #twinklyTuesday

    I think the best thing about it is it will give parents peace of mind. There’s nothing worse than being in the park and have fun while also trying to keep an eye on a scooter too! #marvmondays
