My safe and easy use of a disc lock
« on: May 24, 2019, 07:19:41 PM »
I always used a disc lock. The first years, I forgot it a few times, finally to warp a brake disc. I never liked the "Remove before flight" coiled cord as they are too bothersome to use and store. I finally came with my idea pictured below that is, for me, ideal. I love it because it does work, consume no storing place, is always at hand when needed, cost about nothing.

I believe the pictures speaks for themselves but here are a few words anyway.
You can use only one of the two straps (or both if you want) I fabricated.
The only "modification" needed is too install two small velcro self-adhesive patches (shown on third LH picture).

Hope this helps.

the velcro straps are brilliant.

Good idea. I have got some of those velcro cable tidies that could be adapted🤔 could also be wrapped on handelbar when not in use.

I got a free yellow plastic "key", at some event or another, that you insert in the ignition when parked. It had a loop on so could be tied somewhere to prevent loss.

Still have it but rarely use a disc lock and would probably forget I had it. Rely on coil on the odd occasions I do use it but like your idea. :188:

My solution is a bit more ratchet than the fancy velcro straps, but works just as well. Piece of string and the end of a cheap dart.
