Sucker pole[edit]

A sucker pole is a pole that appears to be safe to lock a bike to, but can easily be dismantled by bicycle thieves. In the U.S. city of Chicago, 252 bicycles were stolen in the year 2012 in this manner.[1] According to Cyclelicious, such poles are never secured to the base and thus making these vehicles easy targets.[2] Another source says thieves can easily take the parked bike in as few as "10 seconds" and still be in plain view in daylight.[3]
