WHAT WE PROPOSE:
The idea is to merge the mechanism of a bicycle stand to a lock in order to facilitate the convenient parking and locking of a bicycle. The mechanism comprises of a rod slipping inside a hook with top of the rod and the hook has a facility to be assembled as a lock.
It will reduce the customer effort and will make the parking and locking of a bicycle more convenient for customer. Since the kids are generally careless enough to leave the cycle unlocked in hurry, this mechanism provides the automatic locking facility whenever the stand will be used. It can solve a major problem of College/student with the current locks and stands are not durable and thereby lead to loss of bicycle of students in public places. The use is simple involving just pushing a rod with the leg and both the locking and standing will be acquired.

CONCEPT FOR LOCKING:
It uses a cylindrical lock with two jaws coming out in the front of it. The jaws are movable to give a final shape of a circle just like the traditional rear lock of a bicycle. When the rod is to be pressed downwards, the jawed lock is stationed to face the U-clip welded to the hub of the rear wheel. This then can be locked with the jaws of the lock.
• The cost involved in the existing mechanism is 200-300 rupees.
• Our product is a combination of both and involves less use of materials so cost will be lower than existing*
*If mass manufacturing is done.
• The approximation cost would be around 150-200 rupees.
