This easy-to-carry and adaptable security device that will easily secure one or two helmets and/or a jacket to your bike. Simply route the steel-braided reinforced Cordura strap through a sleeve or jaw bar of a full face helmet, or route the carabineer itself through the D-ring of most any helmet.
Could someone with cable cutters slice through the 3mm braided steel strand if they wanted to? Absolutely, but it might take them a minute, but if someone really wants to they can pick up your whole bike and toss it into a waiting van. As a peace-of-mind convenience item, this thing gets our vote. It also happens to work well with the plastic locking grommets found on the premium Nelson Rigg motorcycle covers we sell.
This device consists of LockStrap locking carabineer, and a two-foot-long heavy-duty Cordura strap reinforced with a 3mm stainless steel cable and held in place with galvanized rivets.
The carabineer measures 6.5 x 3 inches and is made of hardened steel. How strong is it? The company also makes locking ratchet straps that’ll secure a full-sized motorcycle strapped down into the back of a truck. For liability they’re officially rated for 500 pounds each but the company says they’ve proven good for a full ton under testing.
The locking mechanism can be set to any three-digit combination in a matter of seconds. Simply open the locking jaw (the unit comes set to “000”) and depress the set-pin with a ballpoint pen while you adjust the gear wheels to your desired combination.
*Pro tip: Set one digit at a time and check your work, because if you fumble in the middle of setting your combination you might lose track and miss-set it.
