Biometric lock Grasp slides on and off when used by one of the fingerprint sets stored, making bicycle security easier than ever

Grasp is a new biometric bike lock that opens using the owner’s thumbprint, creating a faster, easier and smarter user experience for cyclists. Developed by a pair of Canadian mechatronics engineering grads from the University of Waterloo, the lock provides heavy-duty security with minimal user effort.

The U-shaped lock is made from hardened steel covered in a soft scratch and water-resistant plastic that features a hinged shackle that clamps on and off. As the user grasps the end of the lock an optical-based scanner reads their thumbprint which enables the device to lock and unlock. The simple, low-energy system runs for a year on three AAA batteries and can be used in subzero temperatures.
