Bicycles are always a popular holiday gift, and BoomerangIt, the world’s leading lost & found recovery service, is helping protect shoppers’ bicycle purchases with one of its best-selling products this season – the National Bike Registry (NBR®) Pack.

Bike theft has always been a problem and this year is no different. 44 percent of law enforcement personnel responding to a Police Executive Research Forum survey reported increases in crime levels that they believe are connected to the economy, with the most significant increases being in property crime.

The NBR bike registration pack offers the gift of security for a bike and another item (a bike accessory, electronic device, or another bike) for only $10 for 10 years. The owner simply applies the NBR tamper-resistant ID label to the bike, then records the serial number and bike description in the NBR database which is searchable by police nationwide. This increases the chances of getting your stolen bike back.

NBR packs are perfect for consumers who want to safeguard their new, and not so new, bikes and can be obtained at participating retailers like REI, police departments, or online at www.nationalbikeregistry.com and www.boomerangit.com. In addition, BoomerangIt also offers packages for mobile electronics, luggage, travel and sports gear. Prices start at just $6.25 for a pack of two labels and two luggage tags, good for 10 years.
