All Hiplok locks are designed and developed at our headquarters in the UK by our small dedicated team of innovators and bike riders. From the patented adjustable belt fastening on our wearable chain locks to the CLIP + RIDE on our D-locks and ultra-reflectivity of the SUPERBRIGHT Series, we believe the small details make a big difference to the enjoyment of the ride.
