Lock Up Your Treestand with the SkunkLock, Designed to Make Thieves Vomit

SkunkLock

Put the SkunkLock on your equipment: it’s the lock designed to fight back! Here’s how it works.

U.S. inventors Daniel Idzkowski and Yves Perrenoud have come up with a unique solution to the problem of unattended theft: the SkunkLock system. This lock is special in that the mechanism is guarded not only by the steel it’s made of, but more importantly by a secret ingredient.

This U-shaped lock, originally intended to guard bicycles, comes with an inner ‘fight-back’ capsule of pepper spray-style chemicals that blast would-be thieves in the face with vomit-inducing fury. Don’t believe me? Check it out. 

Imagine this on your treestand, log splitter, or ATV.

Things that tend to be unattended in remote areas will now be safer than ever! Some marauding thief shows up with no one around and “all day” to work on taking your hard-earned tools, and whammo: a pile of skunk spray right in the face!

The SkunkLock system has three specifications: Safe, Strong, and Legal. If nothing else, they’ve taken the necessary precautions to make sure that this capsaicin-based (although it is not exactly “pepper spray”) product can be used legally.

The SkunkLock starts at around $99 and was originally intended as a deterrent to bike thieves, but the possibilities for sportsmen are endless! Wouldn’t you like to know that some fool in the woods trying to take your stuff while you’re hard at work might get one big blast from this thing?!

Idzkowski said: “At two feet, it was pretty bad. It was absolutely vomit-inducing in 99% of people. At five feet, it’s very noticeable and the initial reaction is to move away from it. At 10ft, it’s definitely detectable and very unpleasant.”

Nothing can guarantee itself to be completely anti-theft, but bring on some of those thieving lowlives now and let them try. Call the cops on the ones who smell like the SkunkLock!
