Locks are a necessity for keeping your bike secure between rides, but they can be a pain to carry around. U-locks are an awkward shape, wire locks can get tangled and thick chains can be very heavy. The Mighty Click is designed to provide both security and ease of portability.

The Mighty Click is, of course, very similar to the Hiplok from a few years back. There's a reflective strip on the cover to help with visibility and a strap that allows it to be clipped around a user's waist. The strap is adjustable and will fit waists from 26-in (66 cm) up to 38-in (97 cm).

It doesn't come with an integrated lock, though. Instead, riders will need to use a separate padlock to secure each end of the steel chain protruding from the protective fabric cover. At 3.5 lb (1.6 kg), it's a little lighter than the Hiplok and features a zippered pouch for carrying small items like keys or coins.

A Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign is underway for the Mighty Click and has already exceeded its target. Individuals can still pledge to support the campaign though. Assuming all goes to plan, a pledge of US$25 will get you the security belt with no padlock (to which you add your own), while a pledge of $29 will get you a Mighty Click with a padlock included.

neat concept. I usually sling mine over my shoulder and wear it like Rambo wears his spare bullets.
The only problem with that is that if I take a fall I feel like I'm going to break a rib! Wearing this around my hips I'd probably break a hip. Given the choice, I'd rather break a rib.
Lets see this re-designed as a slim-profile that wont do any damage to my body in the event of a fall.

would prefer a chain that mounts to the bike, perhaps connect to the lower frame.

I really don't think they've thought this through: • what's the point of a zippered pouch if it stays with the chain on the bike? You just have to keep emptying and reloading it. • if the belt happens to rest on the chain or tyres or gets wet, then that crap transfers to your clothes. • the whole thing looks pretty uncomfortable to wear.

Wow! another bike lock; what will they think of next?

If the fabric covering was a material similar to that used for chainsaw users protective clothing any thief armed with a battery powered angle grinder would be thwarted

I'm confused, when does a cheap knockoff become reportable technology.. hiplok are still current and in business and have a tested certified product... so this guy is selling his super cheap and he's found an untested chain of unknown use against a bike thief that is slightly lighter than a standard hiplok (is it lighter than the hiplok lite?).
