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