Gold Star Mobility is launching a new anti-theft scooter device into the industry. Gold Star Mobility’s new electronic key fob is designed mainly for convenience as the user no longer has to insert and fiddle around with a key.

Owner Neil Medhurst has been developing the device for two years and has now decided to invest money in it and secure a patent.
