Our HOOT Bike Trackers are designed to be assembled in a few minutes by a cycle mechanic. All tools are provided as well as instructions and videos in your box. The assembly is quite technical since it touches the direction of your bike which is why we recommend you to have it mounted by a professional or a trained person. Our HOOT Bike Trackers are resold in selected stores, run by professionals who will know how to mount your HOOT Bike Tracker.
Be careful to read the instructions, use the HOOT tools, respect the torque and use thread and grease brakes where necessary. Of course the tracer itself is guaranteed if you mount it by yourself. However, if a problem occurs because you have not tightened the steering you will not be able to turn against your dealer.
The shape of the HOOT Bike Tracker was designed to make it very complicated and very long to disassemble without the HOOT tools provided with the purchase. If someone manipulates your bike to watch how to disassemble the HOOT Bike Tracker, an alert notification will be sent to your smartphone if GSM network coverage allows it.
No they don’t but they are produced in small series, so it will be very complicated for a thief to have all versions. Keep the box and tools safe as your tracker cannot be easily disassembled if you lose them and HOOT will not keep duplicates for security and logistical complexity.
