Is this rim lock installed correctly?

Nor have I, I usually have the rim strip under the rim lock. There should be a hole or two in the rim strip for the valve stem and the rim lock threads to poke through.

Yes.

I use duck tape instead of rim band, so I poke a hole through it. My mx bikes always came through with the band over the lock like in the picture.

No

Not in my opinion. I have never seen it done that way and I won't do it that way.

It seems to me that your picture is something done in mass production just to hold the rim lock in place.

EDIT: the rim LOCK is just fine, the rim band on the other hand is up for discussion....

I have installed them that way for the last 20 years and it's fine. I have also installed them with out a rim band and just duct tape or gorilla tape on the rim and that is fine as well. Bottom line is as long as the rim doesn't spin under load its fine.

I've not done one that way, but I also don't really see the problem with it either.......

Thx for the replys.

I see its not unusual to have the rim tape over the rim lock. I don't see the point of haven't it under.

I've never seen one that way but I think it would work.
It would have a tendency to slip off the lock when the tire is installed.
It's purpose is to protect the tube from the spokes.

That is the correct way. A rim band only has one hole in it, for the valve stem. This means it has to go "over" the rim lock as shown, otherwise it would need and have, two holes. I also pull the band off on my dirt bikes and 950 SE and do about three layers of duct tape(just in the rim's valley) instead of the band. Has worked great for me.
