Locking Levers (Brakes)

Back in the late '80's, early '90's, I had a few sets of Oddesy Lockin Levers.
There was a small black plastic handle, about half an inch long, and if you pulled the brake lever and flipped the little black switch thingey, the brakes would stay locked when I parked the bike.
They prevented theft of the bike on a number of occasions.
They also prevented the bike from falling over while it was parked.

But I don't see them anymore. Where can I get a set?

Just do what i do m8,being english i use two 5 pence pieces,but for yourself i`d say use two nickels,simply pull brake on and insert them into the slot and release the lever,a cheap and simple way of achieving the same result,although its not technically what you asked i thought i`d post the idea anyway,another cheap way is to get a zip tie [1 which can be undone] and put round the forks and round 4 or 5 spokes,if anyone tries to run off and jump on your bike they gonna be in for a surprise,and zip ties being plastic they shouldnt damage your spokes.sorry ive gone off on a tangent. is this is what you are looking for? https://www.pbwbikes.com/product_info.php/products_id/66

Just clean it up a little bit, because some of your posts are not so clear on what you are talking about and you have some good information.

That's the idea. They've just made it push-button.
But does anyone know a US company?
I would like to deal with someone on this side of the Atlantic.

Thank you. I do indeed agree with you on the fact that some posts in these forums are a bit hard to read, but most of everyone here (in the BMX forums) does write properly (which is actually part of the rules).

I'm sure the product would get here, it's just that we have to convert dollars to pounds , or euros, and then it takes six days to cross the pond.
