Very convenient, being keyless. Its small size and light weight makes it portable. Quick and easy system, simply click and lock. Down side is the cable does jam and can be broken off fairly easy. Had to break one because friend changed the combination and forgot it after tying our boards together
I bought this lock after purchasing my Sierrascope and Flow bindings. It definitely gives me peace of mind when the board check is closed. Although the wire is somewhat thin, I use the lock as more of a deterrent than anything. The combo dials work smoothly and I've never had any trouble with the lock as a whole. Good quality! I'd recommend this as cheap insurance and priceless for your peace of mind while you leave your board out
This is a nice lock to keep your skis/board safe while you are in the lodge for lunch. Very easy to uncoil, unlike some other locks. Also with the small cable you can get it through your bindings in no time. Definitely recommended to keep your gear secure
This locking system does its job without being heavy. The little retractable lock weighs a little less than my ipod nano. This gives me piece of mind whenever I go in to the village to eat. I do believe that the wire is a little thin and the plastic piece holding everything together isn't too strong either, however, it's a hell of a lot harder to steal my board than the ones on either side of mine (without a combo lock). After thinking about how much we spend on bindings and a board, 13 dollars (price of lock) won't even cover the sales tax for a new set of gear if it gets stolen
This easily fits in a pocket and is not a disturbance while riding. The combo is easy to customize and it works well. The cable is pretty short but long enough to secure one board to a rack. I am sure a thief could cut or break this pretty easily if they wanted but as they say "a lock only keeps an honest person honest".
This is a must have investment if you like to go into the lodge for much needed breaks! I went to mammoth and purchased this at their store there and just for the ease of mind it helps. It is definitely more of a deterrent to thieves because if they really wanted to they can just use wire cutters, however why would they take time to steal your board when there's a couple hundred others without locks on them? Buy it
I got my set up stolen at the beginning of the season, and when I got my new board, I bought this lock. I'm sure if the perps wanted it, they could clip the cable and get to my board, but a lock helps keep the honest people honest, so when I absolutely have to put my board down, I at least feel a lil more at ease when I have it locked up. Please invest in a lock people, it's totally worth it to protect ur 500+ dollar investment
The lock is meant to deter thieves from stealing your stuff as a nuisance. So for that purpose, the lock does it's job and its compact enough to keep in your pocket when you ride. Of course, if someone really wanted to steal your board, then its just a snip with a pair of wire cutters
My cousin got his board robbed two years ago so I knew I had to buy something to keep mine locked up while I stepped inside for a drink. Used this all last season. For 12 dollars I plan to buy another next year.
I use these everytime I leave my board outta my sight, I always lock it to board racks or with other boards. Although I've heard stories that these aren't all that strong and tend to get broken into. I like it
I got one of these after my friend got his board stolen. Its super small so not a problem to carry around and super easy to use. The wire is thin but it would be more work for someone to cut the wire then to take the unlocked board next to yours. Having your board safe and secure is definitely worth the 12$!
Simple solution to lock down 2 snowboards. Is not guaranteed but deters theft. Smooth lock feels nice in the hand and fits well in my jacket pocket/ sb pants side pocket. No rough edges that might 'catch' the inside of my pocket.
I bought this lock and the first thing I tested was if it couldn't be broken or clipped, I was surprised at how the cable held up. And then I wanted to reset the lock and it is really simple and easy. Really just the best lock and I wouldn't get the lock w/key one because you could lose the key
This board lock works perfectly as a way to secure your board when heading into the lodge for some hot cocoa or to grab some grub. It is very easy to use, and you can set your own lock combo. It only takes about 20 seconds to get it out of my pants pocket and loop it through the bindings and ski rack. 20 seconds to prevent a stolen board? I'm sold! Plus, I've been using my lock for 2+ years and it has stood the test of time
This lock does exactly what it's suppose to do which is deter people from even considering stealing your board. It's nice because you can snake it around multiple boards if need be. In all honesty though, someone could cut the wire no problem so..
I got this because I will be using a brand new board this year and I dont wanna be givin any thief the wrong idea if I just leave it out. Suprisingly you think you would be able to break the plastic or something to unlock it but it is very strong and solid. The cable is decently thick and is maybe 1.5-2 ft long? Overall its a good product to deter those tryin to jack boards.
This is the perfect lock when you don't plan to leave your board alone for a long period of time. It is good if you plan to go get a bite but not to leave you board for hours. It's so small you can't even feel it in your pocket. I did lose this lock because it is not that big but do plan to buy another one soon.
I love having this lock and feeling better about going to eat in the lodge and not having to wait in a long line for a board check. This lock fits easily in my pocket, wish it was heavier but then it wouldn't be as light and small and convenient. I love that its a combination lock because then I would worry about losing the key all the time. Overall a great investment
Well I like this lock because why would someone waste their time cutting the wire when there are so many other boards that don't have one which would be a lot easier to steal then one that has a lock. This lock is to keep honest people honest because lets face it, if someone wanted to steal your board, they're gonna get your board. This lock will make someone think twice before stealing your board when the one right next to it probably doesnt have a lock
This lock was very easy to use and, when not in use, practically unfeelable in my pocket, it's just so small and light! Very convenient for those like me who worry when they leave their snowboard out too long. Or if you have OCD with locks and security, this definitely puts your mind at ease since at least it is some protection against those thieves
It's a very quick and easy lock, but it looks extremely weak. It looks like if you just pull on it hard it would break and someone could steal your board. The combo system is a lot easier than the key lock because I always lose keys, but the only problem with the combo system is that it is impossible to put in the combo with gloves on, but thats a small price to pay with how cheap it is
Whenever I am out at any mountain resort & need to eat, use the restroom etc... My friends & I would always walk back to the cars & lock up our boards in fear of getting our gear stolen. We resorted to taking turns watching gear & even bringing bike cable/locks but it just got too bulky. I am so glad I purchased these because now its much easier and faster to lock up our gear. Simple to use & very concealable
This thing works exactly like it's supposed to. Makes me feel like my board is safe when I go in for lunch or use the restroom. Quick and easy to lock my board up... Works well for 2 boards as well as you can just lock them together. I wish the cord was a little bit longer though so it would be easier to lock it to railings and what not. Other than that, does the job, seems durable, great buy to protect your board
Great lock. It is small, lightweight and sturdy. It will keep weirdos away from your board. The only thing is it might be a little weak. It is made out of plastic so I might break or crack if you don't take care of it. So far mine hasn't but I think I take pretty cool care of it
Friend has this lock that he got in a package of Dakine's. It looks pretty sturdy but no lock is gonna protect your board if someone really wants it. It's just the discouraging factor that makes them walk away, and this lock would be a b**ch to break. Very small and light, won't even notice it in your pocket or pack, recommended to anyone who actually puts their own money in their board. I only have 100 in my board but I'm not letting anyone take it from me! Better safe than sorry guys, and who's gonna look out for your board when you're eatin or on the can
I got this lock because two of my friends have gotten their boards stolen. It's cheap and easy to use. Perfect if you're worried about getting your stuff stolen. the cable could be a bit longer and thicker but for 15$ its not bad and a lot less bulky then the bike lock I used before.
This is a very easy lock to use. And its about the size of a tamagotchi(wtf is a tamagotchi?)lol Any way you can easily slip it in your pocket. My only concern is how strong it really is. The wire is like a 1/16 inch think so could easily be cut with snips. The body of the lock is all plastic, so it may be easy to break(Im not breaking mine to find out). But its better than no lock. At least a robber might pass over your board just because of that lock. Id recommend that everyone has one of these or something better. For $11 vs how much you put into your set up, it is worth it 100%
Small price to pay considering the cost of your gear. The wire can easily be cut I'm sure but it deters the quick snatch and run thieves. That said, would be better if the cord was longer to lock up a few boards at once. No fear of losing your key just gotta remember your combo, yes its 1,2,3. Consider it a type of insurance
After all the board thefts at the mountains around me I figured it wouldn't hurt to have a deterrent against these pricks. I'm not convinced that this would stop a thief determined to steal your board but it will buy you time to finish your pee/meal break and come out to see the person trying to jack your ride. All in all there are probably stronger locks out there but nothing this portable and convenient.
This lock is a nice deterrent. The idea is if someone is going to steal a board they'll see a lock and not bother and take the one next to it. But if someone is going to steal YOUR board they'll get it, they'll just take the binding off. I yanked on this thing a bit and it hasn't come unlocked but something about the construction seems like if I put all my weight into it it'll snap (although I havent tried). It would also be nice if the lock when broken came with a warranty for your snowboard, like a bike lock
Had a previous year's design lock. The cable got jammed on mine, but I was able to take it apart and fix it. Hopefully the new model doesn't have this problem. Cable is pretty easy to cut, but at least it is a deterrent from someone walking off with your gear
Picked up this lock for about $10. Easy to use, lightweight, easy to set a combination. Will work good for protecting a board, maybe two at most. The cable is pretty short, can't see it reaching more than two boards max. It's cheap insurance, glad I have it
This is an alright lock, the cord is a bit thin and seems to be somewhat weak. It's good to ward away the person who just wants to snatch and grab, but all in all it does lock up your board. Might want to think of a more heavy duty lock if you are really scared
Still not 100% sure on this... But went for it after reading about some recent thefts. I guess these locks are mainly for a visual deterrent, than actual security. Pretty sure it would be easy to rip the cable out, but at least someone would surely see that around the resort. Would not leave your setup anywhere too out of sight still. Plusses are that it is small and light and can easily be carried in a pocket while riding
Overall this product has served on several occassions. It works plain and simple. It's easy to setup/reset the combo and lock your boards up. Its biggest down fall is if you want to attach your board to a friends. Doesn't have a whole lot of wire, so it makes it tough to loop it though two board's bindings and around a ski rack. But it's workable. Also the device feels pretty cheap, which might lead me to believe it won't last that long, but we'll see. So far I have had no issues with it
The Dakine snowboard lock is good to deter the casual thief, but the fact is, unless you hold your board 24 hours a day, if a thief wants it, they will get it. The lock is a good detterent for the casual thief, that will see it and move on to an unlocked board. Don't get the false sense of security and leave your board unattended (even locked) for long periods of time
I bought this because it was cheap and it was very small so it took up little space in my pocket while riding. It's kind of annoying that the dials are so close together that it's hard to turn one without your finger also changing the number on the dial next to it. Not a major issue, but just take your time using it. It was easy to set the combination, and the instructions were easy to follow. The only other issue I had with it, was that I kind of wish the cord was longer so that I could get more boards locked together. I had difficulty locking a second board with mine, but it can lock 2 boards. Definitely will have a lot of trouble trying to find a way to get 3 boards locked together
For the money, you can't beat this lock. Cheap insurance for an expensive investment (your snowboard). Like another person already said, I too used to walk all the way to my truck to lock up my snowboard before sitting down for lunch. I'm too affraid to leave my board out in the open, unattended, and unlocked. This lock changed all that. It's so small, I keep in the pocket of my jacket and I can't even tell it's there. It's easy to use and very convienent. I'd recommend this lock to anyone who has to leave their board unattended for a short time. I wouldn't recommed leaving it locked up with this lock over night, but for the quick restroom break or lunch break, this lock is perfect
