    Recently I was reading an article on some overseas news site that said that people were bypassing rf alarms with aluminum foil. Pickpockets were also stealing high end phones and using a fine copper weave duffle bag to store them in sorta acting as a faraday cage so that when people tried to GPS their phones, the phones were in a black hole so to speak.

    I do like the cuff lock, it does look pretty beefy and it intimidates the heck outta me but where would you attach it to on a stock trail ripper that generally won't be able to be tampered with by a pocket multi tool or cordless Dremel with a cut disk on it?

            Vintage long barrel side by side with slugs is how I plan to stop from being a victim of theft.

            I figure in California, if the situation is I'm getting robbed I'm all in and showing the robber how to redecorate.

            If I merely wound him, I'll still end up doing some time before the extradite my *** back to the uk.

                The Cuff Lock easily fits around the steering pole or the frame and because it is rubber coated it does not mar up any surfaces. There is no way that a "pocket multi tool" could disarm or cut a Cuff Lock. I suppose with a few extra cut off wheels and 20-30 minutes of uninterrupted time one might be able to cut through a Cuff Lock with a cordless Dremel. But the probability of someone carrying around a cordless Dremel with them is about as likely as a Pedder carrying a double barrel shotgun to ward of thieves.

                  LoL, you guys

                  One of the reasons I had a strengthening steel bar welded between neck of frame and middle deck area, is to be able to lock it more secure.
                  Even tho like Dawman, my ped goes where I do.
                  I would like to lock it sometimes tho.

                  Haven't decided which lock to use, what bout coated chains and a thick storage lock ??

                    Not everyone lives in California, open carry of a fire arm is perfectly legal in Oregon and something I take full advantage of. Would I pull a fire arm on someone attempting to steal my ped? You all can bet your *** I would.

                    Any locking mechanism can be bypassed without the possesors key, cake walk.

                    If someone can find a way to protect their posessions, than someone else can find a way to steal them. Cordless dremels are childs play when it comes to thieves and their "tools". I would like to introduce you guys to the "Key to the City"........

To protect your family, loved ones and your posessions, you must fully understand what dirt bags are capable of and how far they are willing to go. And they are willing to go pretty damn far.......

                      Man I need to get me one of those, I got the nextec craftsman little brother to that. Haven't needed more than that to cut the window holes in the custom pc's I used to make

                      So there is essentially no real hardcore way to lockdown my ped.

                        The BEST way to prevent someone from walking off with your scooter is to not leave it unattended. The locks that have been shown in this thread are for when we have to step away from our scooters. And basically they are effective to stop an opportunist from taking advantage of an opportunity. If a dedicated thief really wants something....they will find a way to get it regardless of the security. Whether it be with a cordless grinder or a firearm.

                          There are plenty of ways to protect your ped, you just need to adapt to the situation. Locking it up for 8 hours out of sight while at work is a bad idea, find a way to store it inside somehow.

                          Going into the store for 10 mins and it should be fine locked up to the bike rack.

                          I think a great way to protect it is to render it non operable. Replacing the good spark plug with one that is fouled or had the electrode busted out will prevent someone from riding off with it. You just need to use your head.

                              It’s true that it is not possible to achieve absolute security but it’s better to invest in a good security system than to have none.
                              I am also in support of a hardened padlock and in this case I go for Medeco premium security lock. The dark color of Medeco is off-putting to the hardcore burglar and it is made from an alloy of boron and steel, which is among the hardest padlock materials anywhere. The result is a storage unit lock hard and tough enough to resist bolt cutters and claw bars.
                              There are those picklocks who may think beyond the impenetrable shackle and go for the tumbler. Run off the mill padlocks have pickable pins but in this lock, hardened and innovative stainless inserts in the cylinder resist any form of drilling and vandalism.
                              The pins in the tumbler are chisel shaped in such a way that only a key with exact angled cuts can rotate and open the pins, thus preventing use of intruder keys.
                              Depending on your hardware lock design, you can opt for any of the three key systems, that is keyed alike, differently or master key design. Boron is also weather resistant thus best for outdoor storage.
