  1. ALWAYS LOCK YOUR SCOOTER; including at home and when in transit on trailer or truck bed.
  2. DON’T LOCK YOUR SCOOTER IN THE SAME LOCATION all the time – thieves notice patterns.
  3. THIEVES GO FOR THE EASIEST TARGET; lock in a location where there are other vehicles if you have the option.
  4. WHEN SECURING YOUR SCOOTER, use a Kryptonite cable to also immobilize the steering function of the vehicle.
  5. ALWAYS SECURE ACCESSORIES, especially those that can be easily removed like helmets and jackets.
  6. IF USING A KRYPTONITE DISC LOCK on your brake, use a Kryptonite reminder cable to prevent riding away with the lock still engaged.


Use of a disc lock can help prevent roll away theft.  When using a pin-style disc lock, place the pin through a hole in the rotor. When using a shackle style disc lock, place the shackle towards the center of the disc brake.


When using your primary lock, whether it be a chain or U-lock, it’s important to capture both the immovable object, and the frame of the scooter.  You can also wrap the floorboard of the scooter when using an appropriate length chain.


For maximum protection, Kryptonite recommends using two locks: a disc lock, to prevent roll away theft, as well as a chain or u-lock that is fixed to an immovable object to prevent lift away theft.  Make sure the chain or u-lock is capturing the frame or the floorboard area of the scooter as well as the immovable object.
