Hampton Introduce Biometric Bike Lock

Biometric padlock maker, Hampton Products, is displaying a new biometric BenjiLock for bicycles at this year's CES show in Las Vegas. Aimed at providing cyclists with increased security and convenience, the U-lock can be opened with either a fingerprint or a key.

Available in 6- and 8-inch shackle versions, each BenjiLock features a weather-resistant IP-65 lock, case-hardened steel shackle that resists bolt cutters, with cut-strength of 18,000 pounds. In addition to a pick- and drill-resistant cylinder, up to 10 fingerprints can be easily programmed into the lock, and a rechargeable lithium battery provides an estimated 6 months on a single USB charge.

Hampton's BenjiLock for bicycles is available in matte black and has an MSRP of between $69 and $79.
