The U-Lockit Rack replaces the dreaded “wheel bender,” and the Switchback Rack saves sidewalk space.

We're avid cyclists at Dero. We only make products that we would use.

Say good-bye to old-style “wheel bender” racks that people hate to use and say hello to Dero’s new U-Lockit Rack – a small, modular, affordable bike rack that actually does what bike racks are supposed to do: secure a bike with any lock without damaging the bicycle. The U-Lockit is perfect for smaller applications and short-term parking at K-12 schools, churches, and small businesses.

Dero understands that space is a premium and has designed the Switchback Rack with that in mind. The Switchback allows for horizontal bike parking along a wall and has an optional cable for securing both wheels. It’s an ideal rack for urban settings where sidewalk space is limited.

"We’re avid cyclists at Dero, so we know the challenges and frustrations people encounter when trying to find secure bike parking,” says engineer Joel Greenblatt. “We bring these issues back to our design team, and then seek creative, affordable ways to solve them. We only make products that we, as cyclists, would use.”

Both the U-Lockit and Switchback racks are made of high-quality, American steel, are U-lock compatible, and are easy to install. The U-Lockit is also safe for all wheel types and frames, even children’s bikes – it also ships flat via UPS or FedEx with tamper-proof hardware and is easy to assemble.
