What is HelmetSecure™?
The HelmetSecure™ lock is an innovative, patent-pending motorcycle helmet lock that attaches to your handlebar, crashbar or triple clamp, giving you freedom, security, safety and convenience. The HelmetSecure lock is a first-of-its-kind lock that attaches permanently to your bike and features a 15" steel cable. The lock can be unbolted from the bike if you first unlock it.
What makes HelmetSecure different than other locks?
The HelmetSecure lock is the first to create a motorcycle helmet lock which permanently attaches to your handlebar, crossbar or triple clamp. As the lock is permanently attached to the bike it is always available. In addition, HelmetSecure does not widen the motorcycle and holds the helmet high on the forks away from dirt and hot exhaust. The lock can be unbolted from the bike if you first unlock it.
How much does HelmetSecure cost?
The HelmetSecure Classic helmet lock costs $59.99, plus shipping. The Sportbike lock costs $79.99 plus shipping. If the lock does not meet your satisfaction, we offer a no-risk money back guarantee within 30 days of purchase.
Is HelmetSecure available in other finishes?
Currently, HelmetSecure Classic locks are available in a bright chrome finish or matt black finish. The Sportbike lock is available in anodized matt black.
How does HelmetSecure work?
The HelmetSecure lock fastens your helmet to your motorcycle by means of a 15" steel cable. The Classic lock uses hidden bolts to lock securely around the motorcycle handlebar and can be customized to three standard diameters of round handlebar (7/8", 1", and 1 1/4"). The Sportbike lock uses a hidden bolt to lock around the included replacement stem nut.
For convenience, the HelmetSecure lock has been designed so that the owner will only need to work with one of the locking features (a push-down lock) once it has been attached to the motorcycle.
The cable is pre-coiled and stores securely in an integral part of the HelmetSecure locks's frame when not in use. The HelmetSecure lock is to be used only when the motorcycle is parked and locked.
Which motorcycles does the HelmetSecure lock fit?
The HelmetSecure Classic lock fits motorcycles with handlebars 7/8" and 1" and 1 1/4" in diameter including Harley Davidson, Victory, Yamaha, Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki and many other custom, cruiser, standard and touring bikes. The Sportbike lock attaches only to bikes listed in the fitment chart.
What if I find that HelmetSecure Classic does not secure tightly around the handlebar?
Check that the handlebar is a consistent diameter at the point you are attaching it - and that the handlebar is not "tapered". The HelmetSecure lock is supplied to fit the standard handlebar sizes of 1 1/4" (without a custom rubber insert) and, using one of the supplied custom inserts, 7/8" and 1".
Should I use thread locking compound on the bolts?
Yes, we recommend you use a product such as blue Loctite and follow the manufacturer's instructions.
What materials make up the HelmetSecure lock?
The body of the Classic helmet lock is constructed out of zinc alloy, and the Sportbike lock is made of aluminum. The cable is 7x7 steel cable and the locking unit itself is principally made of steel alloy.
I have lost my HelmetSecure keys for the push-down lock - can you help me?
Yes, please call us at 415-674-8900. Additional push-down lock keys are available for $12.00 each plus shipping. You will need to provide us with the key code found on the original keys.
I need a new custom insert for the Classic lock - do you stock replacements?
Yes, just call us at 415-674-8900. Inserts are available for $12.00 each, plus shipping.
What size Allen/hex key do I need?
We include the required 3mm Allen/hex key with every lock.
I am trying to undo the HelmetSecure lock from the handlebar/stem nut but cannot unbolt all the bolts?
Check that the HelmetSecure push-down lock is unlocked. If the HelmetSecure push-down lock is in the locked position, it will prevent the bolt from being removed. If necessary, twist the lock and the handlebar so that the lower bolt drops out on its own. Another option to remove the bolt is to use a magnetized screwdriver to draw the bolt out.
Should the cable point forwards or backwards of the handlebar?
We recommend that the cable end of the HelmetSecure lock should face away from the rider.
Can I attach the Classic lock to my crashbar or other part of the motorcycle?
The HelmetSecure Classic lock was designed specifically for various sized handlebars. However, the HelmetSecure Classic lock can fit any 7/8", 1" or 1 1/4" tubing such as engine guards, crashbars, saddlebag guards and frame tubing. You must follow the installation instructions and adhere to the safety warnings. We strongly encourage that the HelmetSecure lock is attached as recommended so that it will not impair the safe use and control of the motorcycle.
Where can I buy HelmetSecure?
What is the HelmetSecure return and exchange policy?
