SkunkLock is the first ever bicycle and motorcycle lock to "fight back" against thieves using noxious, vomit inducing chemicals. While other lock makers are focused on making locks bigger or stronger, we realized that any lock on the market can be cut with an angle grinder in 30 seconds or less. There are 1.5 million bicycles stolen every year in the US alone, we hope we can make an impact and bring a real solution to the market that can actually stop thieves in their tracks.

Meet the Hosts
HackCancer is a group of philanthropic, young professionals in the San Francisco Bay Area. We host fun, engaging events that bring great people together to raise awareness and funding for cancer-related charities.
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's mission is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma while improving the quality of life for patients and their families. LLS invests in cures because most blood cancers cannot be prevented or detected early. Their continued advancements are now being used to treat patients with rare forms of stomach and skin cancers. In addition, their therapies are also being tested in clinical trials for patients with lung, brain, breast, pancreatic and prostate cancers. Research funded by LLS has tripled and in some cases quadrupled patient survival rates.
On behalf of HackCancer, LLS and blood cancer patients everywhere we thank you for your support!
