Bin Gravity Lock


Gravity Lock allows you to lock the lid of your wheelie bin to prevent unwanted spilling of waste. At the same time it allows for the bin to be emptied into the refuse removal truck via a self-activating gravity lock which releases automatically when the wheelie bin is lifted and tilted by the refuse removal truck’s lifting mechanism. This allows the lid to open in its normal way and the bin to be emptied into the truck.

SKU: BINGUARD-001 Category: Tags: , ,

Binguard’s purpose is to ensure that refuse inside the wheelie bin does not end up on the street before it reaches the refuse removal truck, thereby contributing to a clean and unsoiled environment.

It is an extension of your personal, household and neighbourhood security measures by preventing unwanted access to the content of your reuse bin.

The lock system has three operational modes:

  • In yard mode – with the cable on the side of the wheelie bin, the lid is unlocked and can be opened to add refuse.
  • Collection day – Pull the cables across the lid and lock the pin into the gravity lock (on the right side of the bin).The lid is now locked and can be placed out on the street shortly before refuse collection. The lifting action of the truck automatically unlocks the bin gravity lock and the bin will be returned to an unlocked state once emptied. Bin cleaning service providers are therefore still able to clean the bin after refuse removal.
  • Last minute access – you can at any time, even when the cable is locked for collection, unlock and open the lid using the owner’s key operated padlock (on the left side of the bin) to add or remove waste. Always ensure that this padlock is locked after this entry.

Binguard unit includes:

  • Gravity lock
  • Waterproof padlock with keys
  • Long cable
  • Lock plate
  • Short cable

    Best investment ever, no more rubbish in the street in front of my house on bin days!

  2. M Dalton (verified owner)

    Not sure if we’ve had this installed for one or two years now but it is fantastic – does exactly what it says it does, keeps the bin pickers away and allows the municipal lorry to empty when it comes. Cannot recommend strongly enough

  3. David (verified owner)

    Excellent product and such good service from Binguard.

  4. Louis Fourie (verified owner)

    The product is well made and the instructions clear enough. One thing though; the screw takes a 3 mm Allen key, not the M5 you indicate on your website.

      Thanks Louis – we have updated the site accordingly

  5. Peter

    A 5 star product. Have had mine for over 2 years. No problems at all.
    The bin scratchers no longer come to the top of our road as the word is out – the bins are locked. Highly recommended.

    This product works so well ! No more bin pickers making a mess and littering around my bin. I am hoping that my entire suburb will eventually see the benefit of this unique product .
