Spotted at Broadway & Wellington in Chicago. I've always shied away from a fancy shmancy seat because I would be too paranoid about it being stolen but then I saw this great hack! Granted, it would still be easy enough to cut through the chain but it's at least another obstacle to swiping a seat, especially if a thief doesn't have a chain tool or bolt cutters on them.
