Alright bro, all hook orders went out today. Including 20 to Australia.
Enjoy and thanks :)
Got the hook. Works great! I've got an expensive helmet now. In in the past I've dropped or knocked helmets off of various spots I've put them on the bike... the seat, the mirror, etc. Vstroms don't even have an actual helmet lock like most dirt bikes do, so this thing is handy. Great idea for the price. Some day I hope he comes up with a locking version.
Took a couple minutes to install. Vstrom riders need to remember not to remove the screw at the end of the bar weights, just loosen it (you probably have a 1/4" you can loosen it without any problem) then just pull it out by wiggling it a bit. If you remove the screw you will lose parts inside in your handlebar!
I'm glad you like it and thanks for the awesome pics.
Can I use them for my site if I need to?
I've actually thought about it and the original drawing DID include a locking option but I never did pursue it. I may just have to reconsider the locking option though.
The biggest problem I see with this is that people are going to ask all kinds of stuff like "how secure is it", "can someone still steal it" and so on and of course, anything can be stolen and I just don't want people getting the Helmet Hook with some kind of locking option, thinking it'll be secure.
I never did set out to make a helmet LOCK.
When I bought my bike and I was at Cyclegear one day, I pointed out I didn't have anywhere to hang the helmet that was practical. The sales guy brought out a helmet lock and he started putting it on my engine guards but as soon as I started putting the helmet there, I realized I didn't like it for two reasons.
First, I do NOT like my helmet touching something hard because it forces me to be very careful when hanging it and second, I didn't like the idea of having to UNLOCK it just to hang the helmet there.
Mind you, this has nothing to do with your request, I'm just sharing my thoughts here :)
It has been recently brought to my attention that a few of our valued
customers wished that their helmet hook had a lockable feature, so I
consulted with my engineer (who has many, many impressive degrees from
many large and very famous universities) and after many long hours of
high tech brainstorming came up with a very cool idea -- two holes!
Yup, that's right, two holes to allow fitment of a small lock.
See photos for proof...
After this monumental achievement, I gave him the rest of the week off.
Here he is sipping some kind of coconut drink on the beach in Honolulu.
All helmet hooks will now feature TWO HOLES.
I would be surprised if we didn't get some kind of reward for this achievement.
Looks good - just got mine in the mail today. For those of us who already purchased a model - simple as taking a drill bit to what we have, no?
Whoops, voided the warranty
Absolutely! Get a small lock so you don't have to drill too big a hole. Other than that, no problem.
That's right and if you take it out of the little bag it comes in you void the warranty too
Ok, just in case...I'm KIDDING!
Like Band-Aids: "Guaranteed sterile until opened."
Just bought a couple hooks. I'm interested to try them out.
Nice idea. I hope you are successful.
Thanks. I hope so too. I'm kinda starving right now. Need food money if I'm going to maintain the 365LB weight
Seriously though. I wake up, check my mail and I have a few orders.
Make my packages, do the postage online and don't even have to talk to the people at my post office (don't like'em).
Again, thanks for the order
I want one. PM me the details.
Rec'd my two "Hooks" .........much more robust and sturdier than what I had expected!!!! Good job, George!!
Guys, your hooks are going out today.
Thanks for the orders :)
Got it on Saturday. Super fast shipping and great packaging.
Put it on my Versys. Works great. I will post some pics later today.
Thanks for letting me know.
Hey, before you take pics, what color is your bike?
I may need some help getting a few pics I can use...
