It’s always a risk, leaving detachable lights on a bike that’s parked in a public place. It can also be a hassle to carry them with you, though. A group of North Carolina-based entrepreneurs has developed an alternative, in the form of lights that are attached to a bike-mounted U-lock.

Known as the BrightLoc, the product incorporates a hardened-steel double-deadbolt lock, along with waterproof LED head- and tail light modules.

When the bike is being ridden, the lock’s cylinder is attached to a quick-release handlebar mount, while its shackle is attached to a seatpost mount. The headlight in turn gets slid onto a rail mount on the front-facing side of the cylinder, while the tail light slides onto the rear of the shackle.

Both modules then combine to provide 360-degree lighting – since the LEDs wrap around the sides – with the headlight kicking out 400 to 1,000 lumens (depending on the selected setting).
