Clamp-IT is a new smart, mobile phone operated secure bicycle parking unit which attaches to existing Sheffield stands. It is part-funded by the Transport Strategy Board.
The solution addresses the near-universal lack of reliable, secure bike parking and ensures a reduction in bike theft in a tidy, managed built-environment. It delivers a service to private bike owners who have been overlooked in the focus on bike share schemes, and is universal, supporting the majority of bike types, makes and sizes.
Our solution is designed to reduce bicycle theft, the second greatest deterrent to cycling in the UK after inadequate cycling infrastructure. The solution is internet connected, monitored and managed. It provides peace of mind for the bike user and will bring about a sea-change in bike use and management.
