Brio "Sports Alert" Bicycle Lock & Alarm

CLIENT:
S. G. Hauser & Assoc. (Hauser, Inc.)

END CLIENT:
Brio Corp. (Chip Meyers)

PROJECT DATES: 1/93-6/93

TASKS:
 Mechanism Design Concepts.
Detail Design of early sales prototype.

 This was my first project for S. G. Hauser.
The client required that we develop a bike
motion alarm with a removable U-bar,
recoiling security cable (held in Chip's hand)
and a locking dovetail mount to attach the
unit to the bike's frame when not in use.

ALL four features had to be armed,
dis-armed and mechanically unlocked by
the movement of a single key-switch!

A salesman (not knowing he was handling
a hand-built prototype) threw the unit
against the wall as a test. When the unit
didn't break, the salesman said
"Yes, I can definitely sell this"
